View Full Version : Long Springer + City Potholes

05-19-2014, 10:55 PM
I've been thinking about building my next bike with a 10 over springer front end with a little bit of rake. It'll be the longest bike I've ever built; most of my bikes are pretty low and tight. For all of you who ride long bikes; whats it like riding those things around an area that has potholes? Does it feel crazy, and you really have the avoid the potholes at all costs, or is it like jamming through potholes on any other ride?

It sucks. I have a 15 over springer on my bike and it bounces around and bucks you off. But it looks cool.
