one thing that i dont know about is the offset whats the difference between 25 and 30 (i think those are the two options)

Its 15 and 30. 30 is the standard offset as 15 will make your steering more responsive more for street riding for nose manuels hang 5s nollie tricks

If you like female only forks you may also want to check out the Shadow Conspiracy Captive forks. Female only with an adjustable off set from 26mm to 32mm.

Couldn't you run a male hub in them? Uninstall the axle put the hub in and reinstall the axle? It'd be a hell of a lot stronger.

IMO, the majority of female front axles are stronger than a 3/8" male front axle...
I've seen countless 3/8" male front axles bend, and I've never seen anyone bend a female front axle.
I've never even seen anyone bend the bolts on a female front hub.

Either offset you get will only take you about a hour to get use too. If you like more front end tricks get the 15, if not get the 30.

trav get 30. i rode josh's bike yesterday at sex wheels and he has primo strands with 13mm offset and it just feels so strange. i mean, if you're doing alot of footjams and nose tricks get 15mm but i know how you ride and you'll be better with 30 cuz you'll be more sturdy. thats my opinion but if you wanna try the different offset its your bike not mine.

does the different offset do anything for strength? and is everything else just as easy with 15 after i get used to it? or if i stick with the 30 could i still get decent at the nose shit?... sorry for the dumb questions idk this stuff... i just kinda do dumb shit till i figure it out until this lol

15 just makes it easier to get INTO nose tricks, not hold them. it makes your front end really touchy, and in my opinion, unstable. most forks, including the ones you've used in the past are between 28-32mm offset. mine i believe are 32mm. strength and weight are not affected by the tiny change. another thing to look at for the offset, is when you're getting your frame, which i know you are soon, the headtube angle can make your bike touchy too. its all personal preference, but you've been riding forks with longer offset, and with the bent forks you rode for SO long, they were probably around 35-40mm offset because of the bend. you're better off with 30 unless you want to try something new, which i would suggest trying someone else's bike at x wheels or something when we go that has a shorter offset. josh sorrentino has a short offset fork now too, but he does tons of front end tricks and hes just freaking ridiculous.
