Yo I'm about to pick up new forks today. And I'm not sure if I should get r25 or r32 right now I'm running like 27 off set and I ride parks trails and box jumps. Which ones will feel better? Thanks

I would think the R32 would be good, since you're just riding trails and park.

R32 imo. Its more stable in the air, great for trails and box jumps. R25 are really twitchy. Great for tech and doing nose tricks. Really unstable in the air though.

personally, i run 32 offset on a 74.5, for high speed trails
i'd try the r32's

with a 74.5 i would go r25's so its a bit more aggressive. but i doubt you wouldn't notice a difference between the 25 and 27's. 32 would make your bike more stable at higher speeds.

Still arguably the strongest sprocket on the market today. Only to its sister, the OG, and the Merritt Mighty. Not including guard sprockets.

The Merritt Mighty isn't really anything better than most other sprockets. It's good, but it's not really comparable to the Tree Lite in terms of strength.

gran parte de la gente que recomienda piezas aqui son bastante malos, no montan lo suficientemente duro como para partirlas y aun asi creen que saben bastante sobre piezas, no creo que todo el mundo deba de hacer caso a la gente de aqui, aunque tambien hay algunas excepciones claro...

Idk. I heard the Mighty is basically a guard sprocket with no guard. I would still get a tree first just because theyre local to me and have lifetime warranty

Cierto, muchos de aquí tienen bmx todo a piezas y apenas saben hacer un 180, lo se porque llevo un tiempillo por aquí sin perfil hasta que me lo cree. Pero algunos como swagking, brokenbmx, sundaybmxrr, David lawrence, anderferly y algunos más son buenillos, concretamente swagking es cojonudo. Pero suelen recomendar buenas piezas, casi siempre odyssey, lo cual es siempre bueno, sunday en cuadros manillares y horquillas y gsport para ruedas esas marcas no hacen mierda barata, sunday tiene las bielas esas mierdosas, las llanatas y los bujes, pero lo que es 41thermal es bueno. Ademas sunday y odyssey tienen garantía de por vida en eso. Casi todas las piezas s&m, FBM, bonedeath, eclat, odyssey, sunday son buenas, y es lo que suelen recomendar.
