Very nice bike you put together there. I really like the red Ka pegs on the blue rims.

Did you  modify the Springfield brake to use it upfront? How does it feel in comparison to say an Odyssey Evo 2  brake?

No modification. Just put them on and go! They feel good

Updated. Lighter deco forks and dual gyro cables. Smooth.

Nice set up. Why did you not like the zero degree forks? I'm running offset forks, but they don't feel right with a 26mm stem.

I guess because I rode ramps for so long anything else felt foreign....hell just having a freecoaster is still crazy feeling

Updated again. Needed bigger bars and had my odyssey 4:4 bars and challenger stem sitting on the patio for a few months. Gonna be weird going back to bars with back sweep, but I got these bars close to free and they aren't in production anymore so I might as well use them right? My friend was at the shop and hooked me up with a new top gyro cable and front brake cable. Shop didn't have any single cables at the moment so he got a snafu astro dual lower cable and we split that bitch so both of have new front brake cables lol. Best part is not having to cut down the cable!
