    I heard people saying that a low B.B. effects upping height in a negative way. After making the choice to saty stock, I 've been looking at the woodman, but realized it has a 12" B.B.. Andy T, or anyone else riding a Woodman T-Pro, has the low B.B. affected you upping / other aspects of riding?

    Thanks for the help.

    It has reduced them to 1 - 2 feet lower. It is the worst idea ever, my woodman bb is not 12" ... it is 11 inches and change. I can barely up around 46" on the woodman, and hooks are playing with absolute death. It is horrendous for slaps, horrendous for anything with more than 2 pedals. Good for wedges...


    If you aren't at a level where bigger things are needed it is a fantastic, and cheap, frame.

    Thanks for the insight.

    That kind of sucks, as right now hooks and big pedal ups are my weak point. :down: Well I guess I'll keep looking, thanks man.

    lol seth, you wear a camelback ALL THE time when riding- normal levels of gay do not apply to you :p

    Just joshing...the only time I've measured anything was over a year ago on my crescent, theo had some tape measurer and the wall was 52" to bash (omg bash?!). That was in skyline park, which is now dead :wtc:
