Bent forks. Looking to get either R25 or R15 forks for easier spins and nose manuals. Going from stock cult forks, not sure the offset size.. what should I expect if I jumped to R15? I'm curious cause I'm only 6 months into BMX, they're fairly expensive and don't have the luxury of just buying shit and seeing what I like and don't. Would R25s make a noticable difference or will I just wished I went to the 15s?

I rode 25s for couple years and on the 15s currently. Its a noticeable difference. Its more noticeable depending on headtube angle. had a 75ht with 25s, was jumping dirt fine..
75.5ht with 15s is pretty sensitive on nose tricks, but ive not taken it to dirt yet. I bomb plenty hills and its pretty stable at high speed, not bad at all.

If you use front pegs+guards get 15s they have better clearance.

Just get whatever you think is going to make you ride better. The more you're happy with your bike, the better the riding gets.

Either the R25 or R32 will feel the most “normal” coming off a stock fork.

I say go for the r15s because they’ll make the biggest difference in the feel of the bike

I'm looking to have an easier feel for nose tricks and I'm just concerned if the R25s will not make much of a difference. Does just about 7 or 8 mm's shorter make much of a difference? Cause I'm assuming mine are about 33/32 right now

75°.. I'm assuming my current fork offset is 33/32mm. So would jumping down to 25 make a considerable difference or would I just end up wishing I went with the 15s?

No ones really going to be able to give you a straight answer. Some people love a steep offset, some people hate it. It all varies from person to person. I would say that the safest bet would be the R25s because they're less extreme, so I doubt that you would dislike the feel of them.

What kind of riding do you do? If you're into more flatground/ledge based riding, the R15s might suit you well. But I just wouldn't really recommend them until you really know what you want. Regardless, you'll most likely just get used to the feel of whatever you get, so I wouldn't over think it too much if I were you.

You'll be able to notice the difference from 32 to 25. I definitely can. Not saying it's going to be insanely different, but you'll for sure notice it.

I mostly just hit ledges/rails.. some A -frames/banks and sub boxes. Once in a while I'll hit some flyout tricks off a quarter. Never really looking to get too high off the ground. My main concern is buying forks that are 26/25mm and end up wishing I went shorter

25's will be VERY noticeable. I think going from 32 to 15 would be extreme. If you end up wanting to go to 15's I guarantee you wont have trouble selling the 25's.

Interesting, I was almost about to post the opposite..

If you don't like the 15s there's always some 25s for sale used.. And the 15s should sell easy too..

I can see both sides of that coin.👍

R32's and R25's have a noticeable difference so be sure before you drop $170 on forks. If you nose manual and do a lot of front end tricks, 25's may be for you. If not, perhaps the 32's. I have one bike with R25's and the other with S&M Pitchforks. I can't nose manual on either, but mine is a skill deficiency. If you are like me, and can't nose manual and do not intend to.....go with any tried and true fork and do not get wrapped up in brands.
