Whats up everybody, this is my 2nd post. I ride 50% flatland 50% street. I am interested in the 2017 Kink Solace complete. Yet, I am unsure if this bike will meet my needs as both a flatlander and a street rider.

Does anybody have any suggestions for a complete bikes that might meet my needs as both a flatlander/street rider? What do you think of the Kink Solace for my purposes? I am 5'10 179 pounds. Any advice or suggestions are VERY appreciated. Ride on Kink Solace 2017

I'd say the geometry is aggressive enough for flatland. Maybe get a real short stem and slam the back wheel. The stand over and bb are a little high. But you probably won't find a complete that's designed for flat and street

Only complete i can find with a lower standover is the Colony Premise. Sick bike. Still, standover is it's only .5 inch shorter than the kink, same weight no freecoaster. Colony Premise
