    Now it's too low.

    Just kidding.

    Brian Foster said you can't have your seat more than your fist high. And Brian Foster is the man so go by that rule. It was in a magazine.

    If you like it, sure. If I were you, I would point my seat up at a higher angle.

    Yeah, probably half an inch to an inch. Try it and see if you like it. Just ride your bike how you like it.

    Nice bike. You've had it that whole time and it's still that clean? Mine was dirty and scratched up the first week, more like the first day.

    Looks way better now, but yeah I would tilt that seat back just a bit. Makes it more comfy too. Such a nice set up.

    I require video's of you falling like you did so many times on your Vagrant.

    i think you should put your seat wherever it is comfortable to you.

    mine is 3-4" out of the TT. because when I fakie, if my freecoaster engages, its impossible to backpedal with a slammed seat. and it kills my back to be all hunched over waiting for my run at the park. stupid park, **** you skatepark... its finally warm enough that I dont need you anymore.

    How is it impossible to backpedal with a slammed seat... You shouldn't be sitting on it while riding.

    you dont back pedal, you just spin the cranks backwards and lift your feet up, atleast thats how the cool kids do it.

    note: im not a cool kid.


    i like the bike, lets just see some pics of you riding it
