If anyone has pros and cons of each let me know, can't decide which one I would like more honestly. Does r25 really benefit that much for nose tricks? Is it even noticeable??

It makes getting on the front wheel very noticeably easier, the stability change and sharper steering isnt all that noticeable though imo.

Thanks, I was leaning towards the 25mm more so I will probably go with those

Only run 25mm offset if you have a 75 HT or less , anymore and you'll flip over

This statement is false. I run 75.5 with the 25 and am considering going to 15mm Deco forks in the future. Ive never had a problem with my set up. It has actually helped me from flipping otb from my 75.5/32 and 75/32 set ups since I dont have to force myself onto my front end.

This is not true at all. There is a higher likelihood of flipping over with a steeper headtube and steeper offset forks, but it's all preference; if someone runs a 75.5 degree HT with 25mm offset forks they're not automatically going to go over the bars every time they try to nose manual.

Neither get s&m fast pitch forks with 13mm offset I love mine

I went from 32 to 25, only noticed it was just the slightest bit easier to get on the front wheel for nose tricks. Other than that, I didn't notice a difference. In theory, though, less offset will be less stable at lower speeds and more stable at higher speeds.

If you youre a style cat & like blasting trails and bowls and such, 32. If you like nose mannys or whatever nose heavy tricks then 25.
Basically 32 for trails and flow, 25 for more streetisg stuff.
This is just general, everyone has their preference.
