Also, can you expand on why the edge would be used up on trail? I just started playing with trailing in, would it be because you increase contact patch on lean with the brakes? I guess that would use the edge without increasing lean angle.

In my experience, the less? rake you have the more you use the contact patch of the front tire.

I started playing with rear ride height last season and noticed the more pitched forward the bike was, the more I used the front tire.

A good read about geometry.

My bike is raised 6.5 mm in the front, with a 5 mhm shim at the rear shock mount ( translates to +13mm? I think rear ride height)

I have stock geometry, except for sag, some hydraulic changes. So bottom line, you dont believe the profile to be the reason im running to the edge? I mean im maybe mid pack I pace, and i have a sliver left on the front and rear.

Not sure honestly. I generally get to the edge of my rear first. I won't start getting to the edge of the F unless I'm trail braking.
