So I've got a chance to get some blue six bolos in 15mm offset for cheap. I ride r25s now but want to switch my bike up. I love the way these feel. But technically the 15mm would be easier to do spins, barspins, and tailwhips correct? I noticed the r25s help a lot with all of those over some fit blades which had a 33mm offset i think. I ride mostly park would these feel too bad on quarter pipes? (not flowy park or trails)

Thanks for the input.

I've rode them for a long time and I'm kinda bored. I have 2 pairs even. But I noticed how much better 25 felt than 33 or whatever so I wondered if 15 would feel even better.

vert quarters, deep bowls and big jumps are my favourite things to ride these days , I can't ride a ledge for 5 minutes without getting bored , deffinatly get comfortable with them and do some spins fly out before you start trying to spin quarters , 3s over jumps nosedive a bit easier I noticed when i first switched over , taller bars I found where harder to get used to then the fork change

You’ll get used to it after a couple of rides , it will be fun and a fresh feeling to get used to
