Always been a fan of the BSD safaris and their multiple pins, I also love large pedals and the grandstands seems to worth trying,

Get the same amount of spacers if you are happy with your bar height, if the steerer tube is too long, cut it (~2mm below stem, not more) or put spacers over the stem, nothing to worry about.

Yeap, if the back tyre slip, you still can re grip and keep rolling but if the front tyre slip... you'll eat shit.

Nearly all actual frames can fit 2.4" But I remember my 2010 wtp complete couldn't fit anything over 2.3" Also I had never read anything about tyre clearance directly on chainstays.

Back in the days I was riding a 2.25" front and 2.1" in the back, then, I started running 2.3" front and back, a bit weird at first but I finally liked better the bigger tyre at rear. But one day I had buy a 2.4" to try the 2.4"/2.3" combo, but my (old) ... more »

Wow it'll be a brutal change ! If that´s what you want, so okay fine but if you have never really experiment gear ratio 28x9 is already a lot more powerful than 25x9 for top speed and also acceleration. 30x9 is good for fast riding like trail or bowl ... more »

Mine's pretty much perfect now since I have done some experiment with bar height/angle, tyre sizes, frame geo, and plastic pegs. The only thing I miss right now is a drive side guard, I'll probably buy the eclat overguard when it'll be avaiable. Also ... more »

Already see this a few weeks ago, I'm waiting for these to dropping in France. In my frame, I could fit my old coaster with a non drive side guard (replacing cone nuts) + the room to slide my drive side guard. Now with my current coaster, I can't replace ... more »
Added reply in a thread Top & bottom tube sizes? 1/30/2016 10:56 AM
A wider tube will be more resistant, against denting especially. The theory is : the wider the tube, the less material thickness you need to get the same strenght. So If the thickness is the same, the wider tube will be stronger.

Go for BSD donnasqueaks, I had ridden them (both 2.25" and 2.4") for a long time and there are perfect, super grippy anywhere and hold up well under abuse. My favorite combo was two BSD 2.4", but one day, my backtyre was dead, I would liked to buy the ... more »
Added reply in a thread Closest coaster to chainless.. 1/29/2016 12:58 AM
Any khe style will provide a massive slack if you want to, pull of the 3 thin washers, and flip the big washer, and you'll be at max slack 1/4 crank (25x9), a tiny bit less for me (I'm riding 28x9). I had a colony freecosater (hubshell fucked up) and ... more »

Rough stuffs eats plastics, they last pretty long if you ride only skatepark ledges and rails. Whatever you grind with, just think to rotate them (especially on rough)

Having two wheels, is the best option, I am a coaster rider but I like to have my cassette wheel ready to ride just in case, if i got a problem with my coaster or just to re ride a cassette for a while (I generally go back to coaster really soon after ... more »

Freecoasters are fun, a bit weird at first but there's 99% of chance you wouldn't go back to a cassette. Even if at the end of the day nearly all freecoaster tricks are doable with a cassette, but way smoother with a coaster (like backawards manual if ... more »

No, the first thing to consider for top tube size is your height, for 6'1, a 21.25" will suit perfectly, (21.5" too, 21" is too small for my taste (I'm 6'1" like you)). For front end tricks, a shorter fork offset definatly helps (i just switch from 33mm ... more »

Fuck no, try by yourself and you'll see how much a few millimeters here and there can affect the handling of a bike.
