Try bunny hopping onto stuff, it's way easier than jumping over stuffs, even if the backwheel case you'll be allright.

Added reply in a thread How to bar spin with a shorter seat. 6/21/2017 11:25 AM

I have a high seat and I'm currently learning barspins, it helps a little to limitate the bike wobble but most of the time I don't really pinch the seat (but I'm more concerned about bike wobbling than most people beacuse my natural bar is supposed to ... more »

Added reply in a thread What gear ratio do you guys ride? 6/20/2017 8:18 PM

28x9 feels perfect, I hate the 25x9 gearing, it feels like a kid's bike and you put so much effort to just not going fast (by effort I mean so many crank turns for nothing, 25x9 is great is you spend your days going uphill tho). Your 2.25 ratio should ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is my bottom bracket American? 6/20/2017 1:00 PM

It's a mid, measure it to be sure, mid BB's are 41mm, spannish are 37mm. But spannish BB's aren't used anymore because or the growing diameter of crank axles.

About speed a higher ratio is harder to launch but you'll be able to go way faster.

Added reply in a thread Sprocket sizes and crank length (trails) 6/19/2017 12:06 PM

Crank lenght doesn't affect pedaling much, with shorter you have less leverage which theoricaly makes pedaling harder but I didin't notice any difference about pedaling force when I switched from 175 to 170. Gear ratio matters alot tho, I personnaly ... more »

Get a Cult Cuatro, 4° up, 12° back and I know you like low bars, it comes in 8.65". 4 piece tho, I personnaly don't like the look.

Added reply in a thread Street frames on trails? 6/18/2017 1:58 PM

The Broc Raiford frame is a good all around frame that would suit your riding well. Going for over 21" isn't a bad idea considering your riding plans and your height, plus you are growing (the Raiford frames also comes in 21.25") Edit: I just checked ... more »

Added reply in a thread Handle bar upsweep and backsweep 6/18/2017 12:46 PM

Not really, we can get used to anything but up and backsweep play a big role in the riding comfort. Plus height can always be adjusted with spacers and width is pretty standard these days, bars come wide and you can cut them if it's too much.

Added reply in a thread Street frames on trails? 6/18/2017 11:13 AM

As long as you are comfortable on your ride, that's pretty much the only thing that matter. It's better to ride trails with a "street oriented" frame that you are used to than switching to a 14"+ chainstays frame and longer top toptube only because it's ... more »

100% personnal so what I like might be what you hate. I tried many combinations over my years of riding like... 12°/2°, 10°/3°, 11°/2°, and more recently 13°/1°. For backsweep 10° feels pretty straight 11° is average, more on the straight side 12° and ... more »
