Has anyone successfully got a gyro on a NS Decade yet ? I'm thinking of buying back mine and id be looking for a gyro upgrade for sure.

https://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/2306692/ this would work on ns decade

Or he could just drill into the frame... he’s buying it used so it’s not like it has a warranty.

I set up a snafu gyro on my brothers NS Majesty. Wasnt too difficult. hardest part was searching online for the standard thread and hole size for bmx gyros. measure lots and make sure you have enough steerer tube. the gyro needs some room to move. if it doesnt have much throw, its really hard to dial in the brake

Hey folks, i'm 6 foot tall. Want to get a dirt jump bike, but not sure the geometry specs I should be going for. Raced XC for 3 years, and been enduro/trail rider for the past 2, but i'm an absolute beginner to the dirt and park scene. Any advice would be great!

Aim for approx 22.5-24" tt and you should be fine. Most aluminum bikes have pretty similar geo angle/bb height

Check the buy sell,

If you had a budget in mind we can help. Dt Swiss downhill rims, ns makes some nice light rims. The spank rims were pretty good.

Almost anything other than a xc rim, you can tell by the weight and width. Wider is better.

If you find something you like ask us about it, we can give better feedback

I'm looking for something in the 40-60ish range, I'll be lacing it to my current hub for now.

I´m thinking about buying a new frame. Does anyone have a suggestion for me?
Thinking about a P3, Trek Ticket DJ, Chromag Monk (But it´s damn long), Commencal Absolut (Damn long too), 2018 Canyon Stitched L (But the service is so bad). Maybe I forgot some nice options. Reach should be 415-420ish
