Re: My new Trick Star rider!

You are right, I have most of what I want. I was also planning on getting forks from danscomp, have you tried any of the zero offset forks? My kid has them on his bike and I really like them.

Re: My new Trick Star rider!

Personally I didn't even like the low offset forks.

I had the Primo Stand V2's on my Intrikat.  Those have 15mm rake and it just didn't fit me.

I had the same feeling of twitchyness or instability on a Flatware frame with the same forks too.

It's all personal preference, many people love them.

Re: My new Trick Star rider!

I didn't know about that about the Strike Zone, but I've always wondered how they rode. I think I will look up the specs for one. To tell you the truth, my last two bikes that I rode were Hutch Trick Stars, part is for the ride, part is for the history (look). I'm still going to check out the Strike Zone even though my heart is set on a Trick Star. Thank you.

I like the zero offset forks, it's just that I'm 6'2" and 230, and I don't think I need to shorten the wheel base any more than it is. If I find a Trick Star I will probably try out some zero offset forks, if I don't like them I can always put them on a shelf for when my son may need them. At any rate, I do not plan on riding HTS forks, I really really like your threadless set up and is what I will end up with.

Another thing to notice is that Diamond Back Strike Zones aren't that popular so they go pretty cheap, but they ride almost exactly like a Trick Star and come with 990 mounts.

I switched to one after I broke my TS back in the day and barely noticed.

Unless you just want the name or the look, "rides like" parts are a great option.

Right on, although finding Woody Itson model has been pretty tough to find.

I found one rider Trick Star that I rode for about a year, then I retired it and built it nice just for cruising. Then I bought another Trick Star that is closer to a show bike. I enjoy them both.
