Currently ride with 11.5 backsweep and it´s perfect, before I was on a 12 and both are fine but less than those values (10/11) feels to straight. Also for the upsweep i ride with 2.5, coming from a 3 up, I like the 2.5 better (perfect wrist position ... more »

I had always ride 175 and it feels good, but the other day I was riding a friends bike, and notice something different with his crank, I had watch it and it's a 170. But I cannot really say the pros or cons because his bike feels way different than mine ... more »

"more leverage on stuffs" That´s the general way, the higher, the better, until you are too high and lose pop, but you'll notice that if you go too high one day.

Added reply in a thread Small Bars Vs Big Bars 8/19/2015 5:39 AM

I love my 8,75" bar but I also ride a high rise topload stem (33mm) and 7mm of spacers under. (I'm 6'1' feet tall) Here is my perfect height setup but a single spacer can make a big difference, if I add one I'm too high and I don't like that feeling. ... more »

A bigger sprocket like 28t, and pump your tyres it's free.

Added reply in a thread goofy bars + spins 8/16/2015 3:35 PM

I'm same as you for barspins (even if i never had really learn them). To understand how much it´s easier to throw them with the good hand while spinning, stand up, feet on the ground, pinch your bike and throw a bar as usual, then try to "spin" left ... more »

Added reply in a thread BMX Forks 8/16/2015 12:03 PM

I agree with the quality of odyssey forks, but I can some understand some people watching for investment cast and thicker dropouts (a male 10mm axle tends to bend ANY fork, too many friends that shit happens). A lot of forks are made with shorter offset ... more »

Added reply in a thread 75 degree headtubes on dirt 8/9/2015 3:50 PM

I wasn't really thinking to raise the bar even more after a such big change (2" !!) but the short steerer tube is not a problem to put the bar lower, so you can try to remove your single spacer to put it over the stem as you said, if it's not perfect ... more »

Added reply in a thread Left foot forward and turn left. Big problem 8/9/2015 12:38 PM

A lot of people are fuck footed, it will not stop you do do whatever you want to do. I know a guy who ride left foot forward, spin on the right but grind on the right side. Some people have their natural spin side supposed to be the opposite. Some people ... more »

Looks like a good setup evolution, you'll get used to it soon (and for the better !) If you keep looping out on manuals, try to play with spacers to lower your bar a little bit because a few millimeters can make a big difference to fnd the perfect balance ... more »

Added reply in a thread Forks n headset 8/9/2015 11:44 AM

All the integrated headset (45°x 45°) are the same. If the one you have broken looks like the headset you found, not doudt, it will fit your fork and frame. Also the fork you are looking for as an integrated bearing race (like on most of the forks avaiable)

Added reply in a thread 75 degree headtubes on dirt 8/9/2015 10:28 AM

For the fork offset. If you go for a classic offset (like 32 / 33mm) you got a nice stable and safe direction, which is cool for riding fast, or simply cruising the streets if you like a mellow handling. If you go for shorter (28 / 25 or even 13mm) it ... more »

Added reply in a thread 75 degree headtubes on dirt 8/9/2015 2:44 AM

75° headtubes are great for all around, but for dirt and bowl (where you go fast and steep) you want a stable front end. I personnaly hate when my front end is too twitchy, that´s why I ride with a 33mm offset fork, a 50mm stem (at least) and a 2.4" ... more »
