Kewl metal trees?

I see that kewl metal is offering a set of trees that are able to bolt on for
Running a 26" front. It keeps the rear trail near stock I would assume. Does anyone have or know about these? If I'm going to spend $1000 to buy either the trees or the trees and a neck rake kit then pay someone to rake it I would be more apt to goin the easier route that I can do myself. However I understand raking the neck would be better all around. Right? Anyone help?

If I had a choice and could do it without cutting the frame I would do the 26in trees. Course, I never do anything to my bike that cant be undone. I heard from a dealer cuttin the frame will knock like 7-8k off the value of your bike. Just my .02

Pickard doesn't have a set that's straight bolt on. Kewl metals are bolt on and go. No cutting.

Also. Will cutting the neck void the warranty?

Pickard does offer a bolt on set but it's only for a 23. As far as warranty, if everything is custom on your bike, you have nothing left to warranty. Cut the neck if your going 26, if you go 23, you don't have to cut, you can just do trees
