What are the pros and cons of butted tubing? Is butted or straight gauge better? Also, for forks is it less offset for less stability or vice versa?

Butted cuts some weight while maintaining strength. Less offset = twitchy ride.

If you really want a twitchy ride, get some r32's and put em backwards

That's why it would be better. =)

I have thought about trying that. Seems like it would be easier to break the forks though.
