I am 5’10 and got a complete with a 20.5 frame I just ran into a problem my foot hits/ rubs the front tire like crazy when I’m trying to 180 or rolling out of a Fakie. Is this a problem I gotta suck up or I gotta sell my frame

U riding clown shoes bro? I dont think half an inch on the tt is gonna make much of a difference...

What offset fork and headtube angle are you running?

If you ain’t riding in clown shoes why even bother showing up ?

Maybe try a longer frame ? I rode 20.5 and it sucked for x ups , can cans and turndowns , are your forks on forward ? I seen on here the other day some people ride backwards forks

Forks are straight with size 11 shoes

That definitely doesnt help... Steeper headtubes and steeper forks cause your front wheel to be closer to your foot. That+big feet+short tt+maybe big tire=foot touch.

Where do you place your feet on the pedals?

Get some mellower forks. The angles make more of a difference than the TT length

My foot hits when I do bar spins but I hate riding long frames they spin so sluggish. So I ride 145mm cranks lol

If you get longer offset forks, the front tyre will hit your foot easier when the bars are the wrong way round (half way through a barspin, or doing an x up, for example).
A mellower headtube angle and longer toptube, or shorter cranks, are the only real ways to cure it. Or ride with the ball of your foot on the pedal

Duuuuuude riding on the ball of your foot is sooo freaking weird. I'd rather quit riding then ride with the balls of my feet lmao

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...
