Re: F L A T L A N D E R S post your setup.

Check out my 81 Supergoose profile. I still need to look up details on a lot of the parts, but it's mostly oldschool Mongoose. I assembled it from my preferred parts between 3 Mongoose bikes and 3 sets of busted Mongoose rims, plus a few miscellaneous parts from elsewhere.

I don't know the exact weight or dimensions of the individual parts, but overall it weighs about 27 pounds, +/- a bit depending on tire weight. I could change out the solid chainwheel or heavy pegs and go lighter, but I like it just the way it is. I do know this much off the top of my head, high pressure flatland tires are a must, and 18/43 gearing is perfect for flatland.

I know the bike wasn't originally designed for flatland, but it's light and strong, and it's perfect for me. I probably wouldn't have really gotten much into flatland if I had never picked it up.

Re: F L A T L A N D E R S post your setup.

welcome to flat!  i'm all over the place with my bikes.  I ride a few different ones, my 03 Master is my main and i've got an 89 master (total modified rider) and an 87 sport.  honestly, my 87 sport is brakeless and completely bastardized but i LOVE it.  by far my favorite for flat.  i have a 99 master that's been retired from riding (i want to keep it nice)

i'm low maintenance.  just need something with pegs, brakes are optional.

Re: F L A T L A N D E R S post your setup.

parts: I stick with Amercian made parts of possible--Sand M, Sequence, Profile

part lengths: I like 19" top tube frames, I've tried bigger and smaller, it just feels right for me, but that's all personal preference and riding style

part weights: definitely a factor, there seems to be a balance to be struck between weight and strength; I'd rather have a part that's not going to snap even if it adds a little weight to the complete bike

working on my 2008 Quamen, London bars, bizhouse stem, hoffman wheels, suelo cranks 160.  Pretty cool setup, just needs to be re-done (powder).  Gotta put my touch back on it.

Re: F L A T L A N D E R S post your setup.

Absolutely sick.  What gear ratios are you running on these?  The wheel set I plan on using (borrowed from another build) has a 12t rear, so I was estimating that I'd need a ~27t or 28t front driver.

Those S&M FLT stems seem to be pretty popular.  Nice bikes amigo.  I noticed several flatlanders don't employ a rear brake...is that because it's rarely used or what?

Are the 160mm cranks hard to get used to after being a 175mm guy all my life?

Re: F L A T L A N D E R S post your setup.

2012 s&m intrikat 19.5tt. i ride a lot of flat, but its kinda set up for all around riding. the stem is a lil redneck. way longer than most flat specific stems. chase g 28mm offset oddy fork, its a nearly full offset fork.  with the longer offset fork and longer stem, the 19.5 frame feels way more stable going fast. s&m beringer xlt bars, not flat specific for sure. BUT, with the 10 degree backsweep my wrists feel way better that they did in years past from riding almost no sweep bars. 23/9 gearing with 160mm cranks. i get around the street and skate parks ok with this gearing. maybe i'll throw a 25 on there and see if i like it???  with 2 brakes and 4 pegs its the only bike i need!

For flatland, I think you'll like them, they're out of the way and with modern shorter chainstay flat bikes, it will make more sense.

Re: F L A T L A N D E R S post your setup.

Those S&M FLT stems seem to be pretty popular.  Nice bikes amigo.  I noticed several flatlanders don't employ a rear brake...is that because it's rarely used or what?

FLT---Great lil' stem, a little on the heavy side as flat stems go

rear brakes for flat----I'm thinking of throwing on a rear brake to open up some more trick possibilities. I mostly just run a front, because its what I use most and a rear setup is expensive once you get into brake, gyro, lever, not something I'm confident doing myself either.
