Would you rather like 11.5 BB with like 8" bars and have that slumped feel, or have like 8.5-9s and a like 11.75 BB?

I can kinda adapt to bar size, but prefer 11.75 BB

I can adapt to pretty much anything on a bike, aside the back end. I need a kinda short rear, but no like slammed broadcaster, aha.

I like middle road everything. 8.5 bars, 11.6 bb, 8.25 stand over, I hold my bars on the middle of my grips on 28.5 wide, but I like less than 13.5 cs

I seek progression, not perfection.

I'd rather have A 12.2"bb and a 9.25 bar but I don't know of any frames with that high of a bb

i used to like pork till i found out it came from cops...

With my new found love of steep head tube angles, short top tubes & chainstays i must admit i prefer a lower BB. My custom FBM has an 11.5" BB but i have noticed with crooks the BB & Sprocket is awefully close to what im grinding. The Benny L Im building has an 11.7" BB so its a smidge higher, i dont think it will make a huge difference tbh though. I listened to what people recommended long top tube huge bars because im pretty big. I couldnt do anything! 20" T.T Is fucking perfect i LOVE it!! Big bars i cant be dealing with it puts me in all sorts of funky positions & i really dont like it, thought maybe i needed to go bigger, got to 8.75" & my god that was even worse!! My favourite bars geo wise were Odyssey Civilian Highs. Ive always loved Animal Bob bars & i was lucky enough to pick a pair up & will be using them on the Benny build. So all in all.. Short Top Tube & Chainstays with Small, narrower bars with a shit load of upsweep :D

I like a higher feeling front end so i run 8.75 bars with quite a few spacers and a topload. As for frames i pretty much like anything with a 75 HT, 13.25-13.60 CS, 8.5-9" SO, 11.65ish BB

|

5/8/2013 10:06 AM

I only feel the difference in shorter frames... 13.75 rear I cant feel any difference. But I feel the height difference if the frame is under 13.4...

13.375 rear
7.75 standover
11.875 bb
20.75 tt

Feels funky as fuck. I like my shit responsive and with 'pop', but stable for speeding and manualing.. This frame was never really meant for my style, but I kept it and rode the fuck out of it for 4 years. I'm finally fed up with the tt length and low stando. I'm going for somethign with 20.50 tt and 8.5+ stando this time around. Maybe shorter cs too.

I like to feel centered on my bike as well. Don't like the front to feel like it's getting too far away from me on hops.

fuck ya... i just built a S&M WTF with 20.5 TT, 75.5 HT, 11.4 BB i ground my drop outs down to a 13 inch rear end. front load stem and 8.5 bars. the bike is low, short and light. i love it. flat tricks are easier and throwing it around is easy. also im 6 foot 2

I like anything that doesnt throw me over and goes well on everything. i like 74.5 but 75 isnt bad, kinda weird though for jumps for me, dont know why. sick for street though. i like a slammed13.6 rear roughly. feels right. and 11.8 or 11.5 i dont care, each has a nice quality in its own way.
