Welcome to the hard part of learning tailwhips

Reply to Clothes 5/27/2020 1:37 PM

Fitted hat, jeans or basketball shorts, whatever shoes that aren’t vans that have the best grip t shirts Never pads, helmet or hoodies

Reply to Chain stay length 5/18/2020 7:25 AM

I’ve rode 12.4 to 13.75 slammed For me I’d say the best has been 13.25-13.4 with a short top tube. It’s all preference but in the 32 or so frames I’ve had I’d say the best has been medium chainstay and short top tube

Reply to Why do I look so hunched over? 5/18/2020 7:23 AM

That’s a good thing. Huge bars and top load stem makes people’s style look like shit

Reply to Could you make a frame that's too long shorter by running a shorter stem? 5/16/2020 11:59 AM

Kind of yes kind of no I’ve tried this before and ultimately it just felt like my knees were in my bars because the overall wheel base was the same length. For cruising however yes it will feel like a shorter top tube but won’t necessarily effect your ... more »

I’ve rode 3 pairs of rubens and riding them now. They’re pretty good

Any of the Soletech shoes usually Never vans

Reply to Flat tail whips 5/1/2020 3:53 PM

Never done a tailwhip flyout but I can hop whip. They’re not really easy and take a long time to learn. It’s really nothing like a footjam whip since you can float those around slow. You’ve got to whip it fast and under you and commit. They’re not really ... more »

Reply to ReadyBMXer and Mulletsnax, where did you get that spacer for your forks? 4/24/2020 3:54 PM

You just take any bar end and wrap electrical tape around it and hammer it in. I used to do that in some of my old forks.

Reply to I need help identifying this frame 4/24/2020 3:49 PM

It’s a mutiny frame and Madera stem demolition tires. You sure they were throwing it away? That’s a high end custom bike. Seems unlikely anyone who built it would just toss it

Reply to Mafia Polar frame on the way 4/16/2020 9:13 AM

Mafias super wack. I’d never buy any of their stuff and I’ve had some lame shit before. But I mean if you like the frame and how it rides that’s what matters. It’s your bike.

Reply to Whats your favourite issue of Props? 4/14/2020 11:10 AM

Well that’s good about the ankle at least haha. I’m pretty good man.I just got back riding after the long winter (still cold here)

Reply to Whats your favourite issue of Props? 4/13/2020 5:16 PM

Yo! Yeah it’s been a while since I’ve been on here. How’s the ankle injury?

Reply to Whats your favourite issue of Props? 4/13/2020 4:39 PM

Nowadays koston 1s go for like 150-350. Haha OP: I like a lot of different segments from each props issue don’t think I could just pick one. Props always had good music tho.

Reply to Pedals, what is your favorite and a question about what's out there. 4/13/2020 4:36 PM

On my 3rd pair of fly metal Ruben’s. Also rode premium slim metals for a while and had snafus shortly.

Reply to So since some of you are bored, lets discuss shoes..... 4/13/2020 4:35 PM

Emerica or the other two soletech companies. Wouldn’t wear vans at all they’re way too wack

Reply to Does Everyone True Their Wheels Every Month, or is it Just Me? 1/3/2020 4:12 PM

That cinema back wheel is the worst wheel I’ve ever had. Mine did the same thing.

Reply to Has anyone gone from 20.5 to a 20.25 top tube and does it really make that much of a difference? 12/5/2019 2:19 PM

I ride 20.5 right now and I notice top tube a lot. I had 20.75 before this and can’t stand it. The bike felt too long even though the backend was a lot shorter. Made bars and whips and every trick you need to be over the front end for harder. I don’t ... more »

Reply to Tailwhip 12/5/2019 11:27 AM

Everyone I know that can whip usually learns them flyout. I guess it’s easier. I’ve never done a fly out tailwhip but I’ve done pretty much every other variation.

Reply to Strong wheels? Wide rims 10/26/2019 2:35 PM

I’m definitely looking for something that I don’t have to true/replace spokes every week. My back wheel needs tightened almost every two weeks. Also good to hear the 7KAs were the worst I’ve ever put tires on. I destroyed at least 5 tubes trying to get ... more »
