Default long neck?


I'm wondering what the advantage is (if there is one) over having a
longneck frame. I'm looking to get a kris holm 20" but im not sure to go
for the long neck frame or not.

The primary reason for a longneck frame is that it puts the seat clamp
up out of the way so it won't get caught on your pants or smack you in
the knees while doing tricks. Right now my right knee is telling me I
shoulda bought one, lol. It also looks kinda cool.....

So you have had problems with the seat clamp...I have had NONE at
all...I wonder why this is... What trick attempts usually cause this and
what type of riding do you do?

It's lighter when you run a cromo post, as you can cut it down. There is
no downside, so for the same price I would get it which I did, and I
love mine.

ok thanks guys, but i saw the kris holm 20" on bike island but i couldnt
find the long neck frame one on there, im not sure if its that they dont
have it or my lack of skill with computers again. Considering they have
the cheapest price on this uni besides used ones, if they dont have the
long neck one then ill just settle for the short neck one because i dont
wana pay an extra $100 on a different site just for that frame.

I always feel like a longneck frame will snap easier than a regular
frame. But Kris increased the thickness at that connection, so it should
be fine.

Why would a longneck frame snap easier?

I don't think it will. I guess the neck of the frame has a bigger
chance of snapping but not at the weld spot.

Yeah, if it were to stap i would think it would be near the seatpost
clamp area.

Depending on how long the seatpost is on this inside.

Now, why would you think that? The neck is effectively
double-thickness near the seatpost clamp, due to the seat post being
inside the neck at that point.

Furthermore, the axis of rotation for any forces applied to the seat
would be where the neck meets the frame, just above the tire.

(http://tinyurl.com/6fdxoh), and not much, if any, that supports your
claim.

So, can you explain your theory? There may be some merit to it, after
all...
