New Frame update
I'm riding really, really hardcore at the moment, first of all because it's sunny outside and I had to get used to my new frame.
Here is what I feel having a longer Frame: The first two days (The first day I rode it was at the Game of Skills in Vienna :) was a real pain in the ass, because the slim fit prototype I had was 1.5 inches smaller that this one! I felt like riding someone's else bike...
After a couple of days, when you get used to it, It's A.W.E.S.O.M.E!
-Trick-wise Everything is just more stable (Nose wheelies, wiplash...), I progressed so much on that kinda tricks!
-Body-wise, I have some fucked up back problem and now I'm no longer a tall guy on a small bike, It's just my size, and it feels way better.
-Style-wise, It's just looks more beautifull, having a big bike floating around!
-Street-wise, It works riding street!
Well I'm not telling you to get a 20.5tt bike tomorrow if you're not tall enough, but you should definitely try 19-19.5 tt, and let me know what you think about that! I mean, I'm not the creator of riding Flatland with a long bike, Trevor Meyer does that for 50 years :) , I'm just telling : He was right!!
Last but not least, Big up to the fellows at Koxx/Abadthing who let me design what I wanted!!
Well, Have a good session, enjoy the nice Spring days and see you at the Bike days in Switzerland next week end!
