I dont wear one, I have a few times but it feels lame. That said I don't talk shit about anyone wearing one. My riding style doesn't really require one if I rode ramps or gaps I'd probably wear one.

You have to commit more to being over the bike and getting back on it. You aren't over it enough

I spin correct but do barspins and footjams wrong. Which sucks it makes any barspin variation suck. I can 180 bar but they're so ugly I never do them haha. I dont use my left foot or hand for anything (though I do footjam whip right). It does make doing ... more »

Nah dan lacey is the shit. I've heard someone say he was a drug addict before what's up with that? I dont really care for his style of riding but he speaks the truth and doesnt care. Being a bmx "youtuber" is lame and so is following trends lol.

Ti parts are good for street also. I've never broke a ti spoke.

The z coaster allows you to use pedal pressure also. 6 oz wheel weight is worth it for sure. If I ever got a coaster and wasnt riding pegs with it I'd get a FEC titanium coaster. It weighs in at 10.8 oz and is about 350.

Reply to Z-coaster and ti 9/4/2018 6:57 PM

Titanium is good and keeps the bike lighter. I ride all titanium spokes with pegs and no guards and haven't broke one yet

I learned how to get over them flat but didnt land one on pedals until I did them over a hip. The worst trick to learn flat lol. I haven't done one flat in like a year.

Reply to Tailwhip troublshooting 9/4/2018 7:11 AM

The bike isnt under you enough and go for your front foot. I hated learning these lol.

Idk about the stem I'm not really a fan of any topload stems lol. Metal pegs for sure.

Reply to Handlebars 9/3/2018 10:59 AM

Yeah I feel it. The only reason I want to go so high is due to how low the fl stem is. It's a solid lite, idr what rise like 7 maybe. I also lose 2 spacers. So in total I think that's like 1.25 inch to switch my current bars to the fl (8.7) The biggest ... more »

Thanks for the pictures! I need to just get a bar in every size haha. I'm mostly worried that I'm going to be hunched over even with 9.5 or 10s on a frontload. I'm only about 5'9 but still aha. I've thought about eclat dive bars in 10.

Reply to Handlebars 9/2/2018 5:16 PM

That's what I'm worried about. I do a lot of barspins so I dont want a super heavy sluggish var. Also I lose 2 spacers switching to fl. So I think the bigger bar I can get the better. Atm the animal foursomes seem the best in 9.5 since they're lighter. ... more »

Reply to Handlebars 9/2/2018 4:01 PM

Thanks for the info! I want those what size are yours and could post a few pics of them on your bike like from the front and shit? And do they make the front end feel super heavy? I want those the most probably tbh.

Reply to Handlebars 9/2/2018 2:56 PM

Yeah I do want it to be noticable but not too much that it hurts my 360 height and such. Animals come in 9.5 and gts come in 9.8. I don't think I could do all that with a topload haha. I could ride my 8.7s but I also want more upsweep since 1 and 1.5 ... more »

Reply to Handlebars 9/2/2018 2:52 PM

I did aha. It's gotten quite a bit heavier I just dont want super heavy bars because I don't like my barspins to feel sluggish.

Reply to Handlebars 9/2/2018 2:51 PM

I looked for the 10s but can only find 9 but yeah for sure bars over 28 are just useless imo unless you have extremely broad shoulders. Mine are already wider than most and I ride 26.5 usually.

Reply to Handlebars 9/2/2018 10:26 AM

That was originally why I didnt keep my 9 inch bars it made tailwhips a lot harder but now idk because I dont do whips anymore really. I can still do them on a hip but meh lol. I liked my 8.6 with a topload (mutiny lifted) but shit that thing is ugly ... more »

Reply to Handlebars 9/1/2018 7:55 PM

Yeah I like those I just wish they had more upsweep. We shall see
