I plan on building a complete but I'm not sure if I can use any fork offset on any frame. Thank you

Yes. Offset doesn't affect the interface with the frame.

Just be aware of the headtube angle while picking forks. If you’re new to riding, I wouldn’t suggest a real steep headangle and real short offset together, or real mellow headangle and long offset. Keep it balanced

I've been riding for about a month but I made the mistake of getting a trail geometry bike but I usually ride 6/7 days on street and the other day park. The chainstay is too long and the front feels kinda weird on spin tricks so I'm planning on building a bike

I grew up riding street like that it totally sucks, i would suggest a frame with 75 degree head tube angle or steeper and 13.5 rear end or shorter and forks that are 28mm offset or less

Testimony and apologies





I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.

What would Jesus say: I didn't die for you to live like this!

Yeah, I was thinking about it too because I have a 13.8 chainstay and a 33 offset

If you’re a smaller rider get something like a 12.7-13.2 chainstay

I'm like 6,0 ft and I have to ride street everyday on a bike with trail geometry that has a 13.8 chainstay

I’m 6’ and used to comfortably ride a frame with 14” chainstays, and 8” bars. Just ride it
