Sorry I meant I am running the same as you, like you say though does feel a bit spinny at times

There's not a lot of difference between 44-18 and 42-17. The only real difference (other than the 0.7 GI change) is the fact that you get a lot more skid patches. Not really worth putting any money into it if you already have a pretty decent set up with decent parts.

I'm running 44-18 as well and I'm finding it pretty good. It's a little spinny once you get going but it's good for getting off the lights and good for wheelies etc.

48/18 - 2,666

I am thinking of changing to 39/16 (2,43)
Not sure if i would like it after riding 48/18 so long.
Maybe 39/15 (2,6) then...

Why 39? I have a wtp 5 Star Deluxe Fat Sprocket to lie about. Undestroyable. Thinking about fat chain (1/2*3/16) and Sprocket / Pedal grinds.

BMX Crank needed
and when i slow down the bike i have to build another fast bike for regular riding.
$$$
so i stay on 48/18 for a while, acclimatization will be done. more wheelie power will come. i hope.

Very nice, the frame it came off is pretty sexy to, dropouts and chainstays remind of a steamroller quite a lot.

24mm wide, but lower profile than chukka,which is the same height as deep v. think that is OTT and also ridiculously heavy.

What looks like the new gangsta trick track frame, looks like an ultra short wheelbase, tight as fuck geometry, and a really tight fork with super low axle to crown ratio, assuming they've improved the strength on the rear end, allowed for big tyre clearance, and its typical Brooklyn build quality (pretty much indestructible) then its gonna be awesome, possibly the first trick frame to potentially give the new 14 frame a run for its money, lets see where this goes....I am very excited.
