Good idea. I’ve already told myself once I do get back on a bike I’ll just ride bowls. But no airing. I still can’t believe it was a simple hop bar that screwed my ankle up

Holy cow dude. Yeah mine isn’t that bad. The fact that I could move mine tells me I probably didn’t completely tear any ligaments. So that’s a relief

Dang, how did you know that ligaments were torn? Were you able to rotate your ankle after it happened? I was able to rotate my ankle after it happened, they had me do that at urgent care. I can’t now, but I’m assuming that just because it’s sore and ... more »

Just wanted to get a feel for how long you guys stay off your bike after a sprained ankle? Mine is pretty bad, probably a grade 2. Heard a pop when it happened. Had x rays taken and nothing is broken, thankfully. No way to determine the exact grade of ... more »

A severe sprain does have the chance to leave you more prone to more sprains in the future. I had a couple bad sprains on my right ankle when I was a kid, probably around the age of 15. Fast forward to now, I’m 25 years old and I’m currently injured ... more »

I understand but for a frame in the price range of the S&M’s I feel like it should have integrated tensioners

Good input. I’ve heard mostly good things about them but at the same time I could see how 1 good slamming of the rear rear could mess them up. Worst case backing the bolt out and stripping the threads

I did check that frame out but the thing about that frame is that the smallest size is 20.75 tt. I was wanting a 20.5 tt

I know what you mean, I see that a lot with spines. Some people can just naturally hit a spine so fluid

I really like the geo of the Holy Diver but unfortunately it doesn’t have integrated chain tensioners. Same with ATF. The Dagger does however have integrated tensioners but I’m not sure how I feel about the geo. It’s pretty extreme park geo. I’ve even ... more »

I guess you’re right. Their website says they’re based out of NY but that doesn’t mean their parts are made there. I still like the frame though, seems solid. And they offer a 2 year warranty.

I’m going to keep this real simple. I’ve been riding the same bike since I was 16 years old (I’m now 25) and I want to build a new bike. I’ve got the frame narrowed down to 2: the S&M Holy Diver frame in a 20.5 tt and the Kink Titan 2 frame in a ... more »
