Added reply in a thread BB Height VS HT Angle for stability 3/19/2020 11:05 AM

I guess it is because you aren’t quite used to your new top tube, might be a little harder to lift the bike, but theorically you should even be able to go higher because you have more leverage, even if it takes a little more effort. It’s just like if ... more »

Added reply in a thread BB Height VS HT Angle for stability 3/18/2020 11:05 PM

HTA and BB brings a different kind of stability, as said before, you’ll hardly feel the change upfront, just a really really tiny difference on how your bike turns. But the lower BB will be felt A LOT, you’ll feel sticked to the ground, more stable at ... more »

And now all these old dudes have a broken back

Added reply in a thread Stable Frames for Street riding 3/14/2020 2:09 PM

Yeah but to make it more simple to the average human brain, let’s just say a 11.5” BB is 1,5” over the axles (on a theorical half 20” wheel even if we are closer to 21” with those big ass tyres nowadays).

Added reply in a thread Stable Frames for Street riding 3/14/2020 9:35 AM

The top tube size matter a lot. The taller you go on the front, the shorter you can go on the back. So you got a roomy and responsive bike. If you go long front and back, you end up with a big boat which is good for bowls and trails but really hard to ... more »

On what setup do you practice ? I can crankarm on flat and uprail, but I just can’t downrail. The easiest being the uprail even if it is a little scary at first.

Good luck to find lower than 11.5” BB, BSD sureshot seems good.

Added reply in a thread Cult shorty frame and seat tube angle 3/9/2020 10:31 PM

Tried an true, not just a theory. I had a 21.5” w/ 69° and it felt like a classic 21.25” w/ 71°. It’s just weird for hang 5’s and harder to pinch the seat on bars.

Added reply in a thread Cult shorty frame and seat tube angle 3/9/2020 7:54 AM

You are right, around 0.15” shorter tt feel for 1° seat tube. It’s because the 21” tube starts from further back, so it feels shorter, around 20.85”

You really need bigger than 21”

Added reply in a thread Any thoughts on 22s? 3/8/2020 9:04 AM

Just over 6’, I like to ride a 21.25”, there’s plenty of frames that goes around 21.5” or bigger up to nearly 22”, BSD the Safari, Raider and Sureshot frames in big man sizes. 22” wheels seems dumb to me for street, especially if you plan to grind and ... more »

I can do pretty much every peg move without pegs, feebles, double pegs, 180 backward grinds... I just can’t smith or toothpick. It’s fun but my frame dropouts doesn’t really like it. It also opens me up one grind that I like, back pedal feeble, I switch ... more »
