Twice.

Leather seats? I have childhood memories of my dad being very dissapointed in me when i left the baseball glove out and the dog chewed the hell out of it.

Fatter than a bronx isn't saying much, I cracked 3 without putting a peg near them

was it yours that had the logo punch itself out?
yeah, then the same one cracked on the other side, then I had two more after they got rid of the logo, both cracked, then I sold the fourth one haha

Ah damn. Ah well at least its better expecting it to happen than never knowing when it will crack.
But yeah if and when mine cracks, that will be the review of the 2015 RNS

Not advertising.
I'm doing a trial batch of 10 yet-unnamed forks. I'd love to get a few people on 'em so I'll let them go at a reasonable price.
These bad boys should be the spiritual successor to the Tchokr's.

PM me if you dig it.

Still not advertising. Nope.

It effects your position on the bike and makes tricks easier or harder for you. Its a personal thing.

Depends a lot on 2 things.

1. BB rise/drop
2. Riders' personal height

Preference comes third, as a lot of people say 'I need a high rise bar but on a DJ frame a high bar feels horrible imo. On a park or street frame it feels natural to have a high bar. If you're under 5' 6". I would not recommend over 2" of rise regardless.

Great points.

Do you think Fork Height should also be in that list?

A 26" BMX with like a 390-ish mm axle to crown fork will require a taller handlebar to get a similar stack cockpit height (or pedal level up to grips level). A DH bike with a 180mm travel fork will have a frame that is built around it, and will have a flat bar. The reason "street" bikes are considered different and people are running taller bars (like NS District) is because people are often running 420-ish mm axle-to-crown rigid forks, right?

You are right.

Hey everyone, I am pretty new to dirt jumpers and I was wondering how sizing works for them. I'm about 5'10 and I'm not sure if a medium frame would be right for me or not. Others have told me it should be a smaller fit but I'm not sure.
