Looks as though one could take an existing bike with a longish wheelbase and turn the fork around to get an idea of the differences in handling. I suspect the effects of the negative rake would be somewhat confounded by the increased height and the change to the head angle. I note that the front wheel is smaller than the rear so it might require a loaner fork from a post-CR period TT bike. Who's feeling adventurous?
