Added reply in a thread Can I ride this shit 4/23/2017 10:28 AM

Ah, the Tierra I never had! I'd say it's good for just a short while more. My buddy's frame had a crack near the BB welds that looked like this and it lasted him around two weeks before snapping.

I too used to complain about the ALVX's shortness, but now that I've ridden a friend's again after the last time, I kinda like it. Backwards manuals and manuals became easier for me and I could feel a sense of twitchiness, especially with the 20.4" TT ... more »

Definitely not Nigel's LV wrap bike.

But it's the angle you change when angling (moving) bars forwards. If you keep the bars in the same angle , but swap to a shorter/longer stem, it's different from just re-angling your bars. You need to consider upsweep and backsweep. With the bars angled ... more »

Anyone remember Tyler Fernengel's truck drop in the Silverdome?

KINK My current frame build, and, though I am seeking another frame right now, I have grown to love the geometry of my 2013 Hamlin frame in dark blue. I'll likely hang it up one day should it stay in one piece. Plus, the KINK team kills it! Odyssey For ... more »

While I most definitely agree that, at times , it seems that questions are dumb (which, in all honesty, you're right), this is a forum where newbies can come for help, and the job of any forum is to discuss, share, and come for assistance.

You'd be surprised, some people are REALLY picky about bar alignment. Like, to the 1/2 degree. Maybe you're not this crazy about it, but I agree with above. Angle them back and adjust very slightly from there. You'll find your "sweet spot" sooner or ... more »

Keep going at it. It was hard for me to learn them as well. In about two months, I only had around where you are now. After around four months, I had them both ways. The thing is, I don't have an opposite for 180 spins, so I would mindlessly huck them ... more »

That's sooooo sick, man! I love Vans, I'll likely never ride with any other shoe ever. Those looks sweet, loving the green! It's rad you got those goodies along with your purchase as well. #WafflesForLife

It might assist, but not by much. Just practice and skill.

This is pretty much it, if you ask me. I fail to see why your dad fails to see this is a bad idea.

It's gonna be hard, then. Is the Mongoose Mode 900 available in the U.K.? I recall hearing it was not, but if it is, I'd say that's the best bet.
