Nice. I hate people that have a perfectly good stem, that doesn't even look bad or anything, and go out and buy a brand new one. It grips your forks to your bars. I don't know why I'm ranting.

But yeah, get a clean looking stem, and your bike will look nice. Did you buy the forks brand new?

You could donate your old stem to your LBS.

1/15/2011 8:50 AM

call me dumb or whatever but... how do strands feel different from different forks. i know the offsets different but what does that mean less offset, easir to do nose manuals, vise versa? can some one explain?

haha ok good! but does it make the steering more jumpy? and is it too easy to flip over on hang fives and nose manuels?

At first there is just a tiny difference, then you just get used to it and feels better than normal forks imo.
And yeah its way easier to do nose manuals and regular manuals as well because they are hella light
