As of the other day I've been doing countless endos trying to roll out the right way, I've yet to find that " comfort zone" where I feel safe and stable rolling backwards to the left, it's like a little weight "pocket" where you feel in complete control. ... more »

Well rationally you lose a lot of momentum, the start/stop of the momentum makes for a kinda jerky change of direction, makes rolling out very hard (thus Why I Hop, it's smoother.)

I'm seriously considering this frame-Love BSD, Love Reed Stark-I"m just scared that short Chainstay will fuck with me too much, but i guess Integrated Chain Tensioners make riding the wheel un-slammed a little more bearable. Nice Frame, Nice Setup 10/10.

I ride a Kink frame. Kink makes good stuff, the open hollow chainstays kinda weird me out, everything seems like it's a pretty neat frame, plus the colors, Kink always does cool colorways. I'd get it if I wasn't already set on a Cult AK.

I have a female Cult crew hub on a IC-3 Cult fork and the combo is super solid, the dropouts actually straightened out a bent male axle I was using, good enough to smith on! The cult hub is basic female, but if you're even thinking about the IC-3 forks ... more »

Anything with those Conical Flanges and a FEMALE AXLE; Female Axles are over stronger option for the front- the protruding male axle is subject to bend and even push the flange into the bearings, thus the conical flange (Like the one on the Animal Javelin) ... more »
