Todd Meyn has been toying with them for a while on BMX too. On a much smaller jump. This was 7 years ago. As to goofy footed being "better", I will say it isn't necessarily better. Just different ways to do the same thing. Nyquist is goofy footed. He ... more »

Watch videos from the 90s, and then do that stuff.

Nope, like Tim said, new bike time. All sarcasm aside, if you are comfortable, yes. Honestly I have been 6 feet tall since highschool and ran a 20.5 until a few years back. I am running a 21.25 now. You can get used to just about anything with some time. ... more »

Yep! Got it through a shop I part time at for a killer deal. Wanted to go FBM but they were legit like 100 bucks more than I paid for the Radio and I did not have the cash for that.

They miter the TT/HT junction differently as the TT/HT junction alone does not make the angle of the HT. It is a combination of the TT and DT, and those angles can easily be tweaked to create the HT angle. Effectively you could take a BMX frame, cut ... more »

It's a 75.25 HT angle, not 75-I was a little worried about that when I got it cause I was used to 75. Found these specs somewhere a long time ago and saved em cause I don't remember these minute details. Mine is a 21.25 TT. TOP TUBE LENGTH: 21" CHAIN ... more »

They are everywhere around here for pretty cheap. I legit could have picked up several rockhoppers, an occasional stumpjumper, and tons of these. Check your local facebook marketplace. I had to fully overhaul it and add tubes when I got it, then scored ... more »

Scerbo bars are HUGE to collectors. There was a time everyone had a set pretty much, and most are long gone.
