I'm not doing huge drops/airs so it would be fine I guess However, no one answered my main question - what difference would the minus 2 degrees in backsweep make?

Added reply in a thread Shadow bars? 6/28/2016 10:30 AM

Doesn't that reduce stress on your wrists? Because my wrists hurt from time to time (that's why I won't go below 3 degrees upsweep)

What do you mean by 'flexy'? I mean could you describe the feeling and the difference with sunday? I never knew that bars feel different (apart from height/geometry)

I have an front load flipped upside down with 4 spacers, so there is nothing I can do with the stem.

Right now I'm riding the sunday tall-T bars which have 12 backsweep and 4 up. Im looking for taller bars (these are 8.7 and I'm 6 feet tall). In my country I don't have a lot of choices. My wrists aren't very strong and I have heard that the higher the ... more »

Anyway, any opinions on the primo or the bsd?

I have the fiend reynolds 2015 stem (flipped) right now with two spacers - one 10mm and one 5mm Height isn't that much of a concern, I'm more concerned with the difference in upsweep I will see, if it's not for me I will trade them for something else ... more »

Could the problem be in the technique/or smth on the bike? I see clips of people going slower than me and still getting into the fakie. Many people doing 180 out of a feeble dont even do a full 180 and go super slow and still get it.

It also could be a bent front sprocket (if you do grinds) and check the sprocket bolt. if its loose that might be the problem

I think you like longer seat tubes and a bit shorter chainstays. The seat tubes on the first two picture look shorter compared to the others (especially the chrome one). That's fine, I like longer seat tubes too, short ones have always looked weird to ... more »

My lower back also hurts after riding, but I'm used to it now. It's more like soreness, not exactly pain. You can do streches of the lower back, thighs, hams, gluteus (muscles around you butt/lower back). Stretching helps. Higher bars would also help, ... more »

was you hopping height affected in a negative way? I'm thinking of changing my 8.7 bars to 9 or 9.25 ones, but many people say that the bike becomes unstable with taller bars, or that hopping height decreases.

well I have a front load stem and 2 spacers which are probably 7-8 mm total. I've tried flipping my stem upside down but I dont really feel much of a difference. Anyways, I'll try pushing my bars a bit forward, if that doesnt work i'll probably switch ... more »
