That is your opinion. I am on 31-9 and it took awhile to get used to but I like it, chain runs smooth. Which translates to those components lasting longer. Makes fakies easier as well as your cranks don't spin around as much,and more pressure when tail ... more »

2.1 maxxis grifter on the rear and a 2.3 (inflated 2.25) grifter on the front. I like the wider front for foot jams but god damn do big tires slow you down.

Added reply in a thread Tire PSI and its effects (am looking for preferences, and to understand how it effects various stuff) 9/21/2016 7:21 AM
105 psi in my grifters and they are super fast in bowls. Squishy tires freak me out when going fast as I feel they are going to roll over the sidewall and cause an awesome crash. I am not a fly out master or anything and try to land as smooth as possible ... more »
Added reply in a thread frame standover height advice 9/21/2016 7:18 AM
Honestly a low stand over hurts flowing around. My frame is 8.6 and I like it as much as my 9. It helps keep you more stable. Hell look at any trails/bowl frames and stand over has gotten higher and for a good reason. Low stand over are for scooter riders ... more »

Really depends on what you want. Less back pain or leg room for bar spins?
Added reply in a thread Where to find a TALLER fork? And other ways to alleviate back pain/give space for barspins. 8/21/2016 5:43 PM
The only time I ever got back pain like that was when my bars were a little too small. I added bigger bars and it made it better but not perfect. I took 4mm off my reach and problem was solved. Obviously that worked for me so I though I would share. ... more »

Sending your bars forward will only hurt what you are trying to accomplish. Try a shorter reach stem. Itll bring the bars closer to your body and keep you from being so hunched over.
Added reply in a thread Bmx weight, whats considered the best? 8/13/2016 6:29 AM
Short rear ends and low standover make things feel like a scooter. My most likely 21lb laird (13.6 cs and 8.7 SO) weighs was less than my buddies alvx (4 pegs etc) and mine is way more stable when doing anything.
