    Stout 29" Big Ripper

    Hmm, it's a bmx cruiser, so you're gonna have to stand and it only has a rear brake. My guess is not so good.

    i rode 1 around the bike shop parking lot...i thought it looked cool & it was easy to kind of "flick" it around but when it came down to it i felt the same as onlycrimson regarding the practicality of rear brake only on trails & got a stout. there was a guy who posted a while back in a couple of the stout threads that he has a big ripper if you can find him to ask about it.

    True statement. I had a front brake installed on mine and rode it on lots of trails. It's fun, but far from forgiving. Very stiff and rigid, built for BMX.

    Wow that vid is crazy yet somwhat cool at the same time. Such a big bike to do those kinds of things on. Not sure what brand it is but it looks to be similiar to a Fixie/track bike thats setup for BMX. Urban commuter Something like the Redline Urbis, SE DC PK Ripper, Volume Creedance etc etc....

    As far as the Big Ripper goes? Big mans BMX not a singletrack lol Stout is a different thing compared to the Big ripper. You may be able to single track a stout by changing its wheels Best bet for single track from SE bikes is one of their Lager, Premium Ale, Draft etc.

    Take off that rear brake and you will be the only bike on the mountain that can do mad barspins. That's the reason to buy right there.

    Pair0dimes...how did you put a front brake on your big ripper? the landing gear fork doesn't have any brake mounts. i found a pk ripper that i really like but don't even want to ride on pavement without front brake so am about to walk away from it since i can not figure out a way to install one.
    please tell me how so i can buy that bike.

    If its like the standard 20" landing gear fork, there should be a hole just below were your lower headset race sits. A bmx ( flat land freestyle) brake should bolt right up. http://www.danscomp.com/products.php...=BRAKESCALIPER
    not sure how well it would work with such a big wheel?
    Enjoy every ride!

    Yeah dude. M-dub nailed it. Hole in the fork allows a brake mount. It really wasn't an issue fitting it on there. Typical BMX U-brake.
