    So, it sounds like I need to look into a new stem. If that doesn't work, a new frame. What do you guys think of the Leader 722?

    I built my career on track stands, a very useful technique.
    Handless track stands are a useless circus trick.

    Do not belittle my profession.

    Shows how little I know. I can't do a no handie because my rear view mirror pulls the wheel over.

    Insert a roll of quarters into the bar end opposite your mirror.

    This is the kind of advice I come here for; so simple to an old-timer yet so out of reach to noobs like me. Such a tasty morsel - makes me want more. A pro, my friends. And a class act on top of it.

    You should probably buy several frames to see which allows you to perform the most impressive no-handed track stands.

    Nah, just stop buying frames from the internet. Buy one from a shop where you can get properly fitted and go for a test ride before you buy. On that test ride (while out of sight of the shop) try a hands free track stand. Then you'll know. But before you do that, buy a shorter stem. And then buy a set of riser bars to see if it's really just too much weight in front of the headset that's making everything too floppy.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    I venture back into the real world and miss all of this? Thanks for the heads-up, guys.

    OP, buy whatever new bike optimizes your sqrl suppage and hop on Coach Nagrom's 12 week program.

    By week ten, you'll pick up so many chicks at stoplights that you'll be a walking std!

    Trust me, I'm a doctor.

    Or even just take the bars off the bike completely and try doing a no-handed trackstand. If that makes it way easier, simple proof that it's the weight of the bars / length of the stem causing the issue.

    To people thinking I'm going to buy a new frame over just this silly trick-

    I didn't mention this frame has intense toe overlap. I've gotten used to it, but it's still there and it does get in my way sometimes.
