Fork Geometry

A: Steerer Length: 180mm

This steer tube is about 20mm taller than average. A tall steer tube will make the bars feel taller and the bike easier to pull back for high hops.

B: Offset: 25mm

This is a short offset, designed for a snappy and responsive feel. Shorter offsets make the bike feel quick in corners and nose manuals are easier to get into.

C: Dropout Size: 10mm

Designed for front wheels with a 10mm front axle. If your front axle is smaller than your rear, its 10mm.

Conclusion

When I built my last custom bike, these were the forks that I wanted because I wanted something with a 25mm offset. However, they were out of stock so I got something else. This geometry is really good for riding that requires a lot of spins and nose tricks.
