im in your position buddy....i think lookbacks are easier, i was trying some off of a quater-to-bank thing and the only hard part is laying your leg on the toptube, the rest is easy becuase then you just have to turn your bars... as for turndowns...help me too.

I got mine off of Ares, don't know if they're legal or not. Don't tell the RIAA!
