I need new forks and the Primo Strands are on sale on Danscomp right now for $70. But how noticeable will the 13mm offset be? I read somewhere that it's impossible to cruise down the street and do a no hander. Is it really this bad? And do any of you have these forks?

Well 13mm offset is insanely steep.
It's gonna be fun if you're into nose tricks.
I wouldn't recommend riding trails with them, way to twitchy.

Yeah I guess that isn't really necessary. My bike already has a 75 degree headtube though so would it be too steep? I mainly ride street and park though so I think I should be fine

I went from 32mm offset to 25mm offset and didn't notice any difference, besides it being barely easier to pop up on the front wheel.

I think it's more a personal thing.
I'm trying to imagine the feel of these forks with an OG Balum.

Ive been running 75.5 with 13mm offset forks. Honestly i didnt notice a huge amount of difference. Sure getting into a balance point was quicker but i honestly believe they wont make you a nose wheelie jedi master.

This. I ride strands on my ATF and it just makes getting to the balance point easier. They're not crazy twitchy but they're very nice.

I'm on the vital legit list!

Looks like I'm getting some strands! The samsquanch bars are on sale too, should I get them to match the forks?

Sure, I actually don't like them too much the cross bar just turns me off, I really dig the drop thing cross bar on the SHadow bars though.

I've had these forks for about a month now and for the first day you will notice it a little but then you will get used to it, and i can ride with no hands easily but you don't need to hahaha
i also ride freestyle with them so everything, if you are riding trails it will be a little twitchy but its fine. i recommend these but if you already don't have much bike control you might have to look for some other ones

Hope this helps also they are pretty dam strong and fun also have a lifetime warranty

I have Animal Barrett Forks & they are basically the same thing. The Drop Outs are THICK! The steerer tube is a little long & not much room to cut down either. Thats my only complaint about them.

I had them. They were decent. I'd take almost any other fork over them, though. Just because.

I have F25s now.
