  • 2009 Kris Holm Longneck

    So guys,

    I recieved my '09 Longneck today, and since it's one of the first real '09's I thought I'd post it. It's only got one scratch, and that's from my wrench.

    The quality is bad, but I used my camcorder.

    Also, I hate how high the handle is, but it's as far back as the seat goes. How can I fix this?

      Nice ride you got there. Something like what I might have some day.

        is there anything different about the 09 from the 08 except the seat?

          I think the rim is different.

          Anyways.

          Is there anyway I can lower the handle. It feels soooo high. My talent show rehearsal is tommorow.

              Take some washers, or pieces of a old tube, and put it on the back bolts untill it sits at the desired height.

                Then the back would be too high.

                I don't want to hacksaw, because I don't think I need to. It looks as though this is the only seat that goes that high up.

                And the seatpost is facing forward.

                  go try a doubleflip and mess up on it and land on the front of the seat. I do that when my seats are to high.

                    I'll pass.

                    I don't want to mess anything up. Is it just the natural curve of the new base? If so, I don't like it.

                      lol ok. If the base is like that then i dont want a 09 seat. Is the foam thicker in the 09's?

                        Lol.

                        I think I found the problem. The picture is really blurry, but you can see.

                        Should the reinforcement plate be over or under the seatpost?

                            hahahahahahhahahhahahhahhahahhahahahahahah
                            in every pic i have seen it has been in over the seat post.
                            Like the seat is normal on the seat post then the bolt goes through the reinforcement then the seat post then the seat. h
                            hard to explain,

                              Yeah. That was it

                              I'll post a good picture soon.

                              Another question.

                              It is still about an inch or two higher than I like to rider. Will it become easier.

                              Also, I learned 5spins yesterday. I can hardly 3spin with the seat so high.

                              Again, will I get used to it.
