The shivs have a short steer tube, but that doesn't mean you can't run a gyro...
some frames have smaller head tubes than others, so more or less of the steer tube will stick out depending on that." Shivs suck" is a stupid opinion based on zero facts.
Ride the fucking fork yourself then talk.

I say get the shivs cuz they feel exactly like blades and wiegh much less. Iv'e done some fatty drops and flopped some steep rails and they take the punishment just fine. The only flaw are the drop outs. My old blades fit animal lights just fine, but i had to make some "modifications" to my front peg just to get it on the shivs.(shadow little ones or wtp toxics fit em though)

i run a huge amount of spacers and the shivs cant give me that. they look like they will snap at any moment. the dropouts or whatever you were saying suck. and i like the offset of my primos.

haha idk why people hate on the shivs so bad for being soooo skinny?..but yet everyone loves the dak frame.. same thing goin on..smaller size tubing thicker gauge metal.. therefore it doesnt make a difference on how thin they are..they arent. pretty damn strong...if delarosa runs them without any probs i would be safe to say anyone on here can handle them...
