Okay, so i have the odyssey cs2 rce forks with 32mm offset.
I do lots of hang 5s and nose manual type stuff, and was thinking about going to 25mm offset with the R25 forks (does anyone know when theyre coming out?)
would changing from tradtional offset to steep offset fell really weird?

AND, im thinking of building up a matching reaer wheel. I was thinking Ratchet to birdcage.
Anyone have birdcage in the rear?
how is it?
and how is the ratchet hub? i know its good, but i want solid reviews from people who've owned it.
Thank you!

Youll notice the offset for about half an hour at most then you wont know the difference really. Peopl;e go from regular offset to primo strands with no problem so you should be fine. Ive only heard good things about the birdcage but i think someone on here bent theirs, thats the only bad thing that Ive seen though.

Reducing offset will make the steering more twitchy and responsive. It shortens the wheel base also so it should make things like nose manuals and hang 5s a bit easier.. The r25 forks are already out buddy check albes and empire. The change in offset shouldnt feel that drastic, noticeable yes but its nothing you wouldn't be able to get use too.

As for the ratchet it is notably one of the best hubs on the market ATM,i have heard nothing but great things about it. As for the birdcage i have heard of people having some troubles with it, i would probably just go with a rollcage or ribcage especially if its for your back wheel.

Not true, its designed with a taller side wall to allow brake use and run in the rear. Shit randy brown runs birdcages front and rear.
