They have 18" bikes now, if you wanted to get something the right size.

Not a bad review, but to be fair that odyssey peg was being grinded further than the others for the most part. So probably the most durable of them all really.

I am right foot forward but left footed, grind left side, spin left on flat, but find right turn airs on quarters more natural. Don't put too much thought into what everyone else is doing, more important to just find what works for you.

Sorry but 5'4 is short regardless and 21" bikes are generally suited for 5'10 plus riders. Forget recommendation charts and all that nonsense, most are just some general guide someone came up with decades ago and are not helpful. You can't try a bike ... more »

20.25 - 20.5 max That SE has horrible geo especially for a kid that ain't really tall. Look at the Kink Launch, Kink Gap or Kink Whip and definitely not any XL (20.75 - 21.25) size bike for his height.

Added reply in a thread bar rise for height 6/17/2020 7:21 AM

Forget diagrams and theories. Bigger bars make lifting the front end easier, and can be easier to loop out. How much so depends on the rest of the bikes geo. Depending on your height and riding style, everything comes into it really so it is pretty much ... more »

Added reply in a thread What are the best park/street tires in 2020? 6/7/2020 5:59 PM

When did you last have them? Cause I heard they made improvements over the original design. My buddy with folding grifters usually gets a couple of flats every month on nothing huge, and runs over 60psi from memory.

Added reply in a thread What are the best park/street tires in 2020? 6/7/2020 4:12 AM

Demolition Momentum is a solid tire for light street riding. Grippy and lightweight without going to a folding bead, which I believe is half the reason people get flats often. Can run them down at 40-50psi and they hold up nice.

The establishment has failed the people. The trouble is systemic, and liberation has never been on their agenda.

Added reply in a thread covid19 --- are skateparks safe 5/31/2020 1:23 AM

You cannot have representatives of the establishment murder a man in the street for the whole world to see, and not expect there to be massive retaliation. It took burning down their own community for the first cop to be arrested, so it appears rioting ... more »

Added reply in a thread Grind box height size 5/30/2020 2:57 AM

If you cannot at least hop manny onto whatever height you decide on, then I would call it too high. Anything higher than 18" is probably not really ideal for someone starting out with pegs.

From the most insular city on what is effectively a leaderless island filled with complacent ignorance. We have no real leadership here, just a bunch of overpaid political puppets following orders driven by US corporate agenda.

Added reply in a thread Grind box height size 5/28/2020 6:00 PM

Short answer is yes, make it practical and fun for learning stuff. Probably around 16" would be a good start.

Fear and control, nothing to see here. Thread is dust.

Yes. The answer has been the same since day one. The flu might kill you, but this media driven hysteria event will not. Ride your bike, covid is bullshit.

What you have is fine, put the bars slightly back from inline with the forks if the bike feels a little big for you.
