Lower risk of nosedive?
do you think riding in custom with a Little elevated nose lowers the Risk of nosediving compared to regular nose hight?

I don't think so no.
If the nose is up you tend to push it down even harder so you will probably crash even faster.
I'm looking towards"fangs".
But my whole Center of gravity is fore on the back foot/over the Wheel and not so far down on the front.
We lifted the height 3" for bigger wheel and for laughs.
The nosedives are more severe. Recovery or run-outs are harder.
Momentum has an increased effect because the pivot point has moved.
It clears deeper water puddles .

@fruitygreen Hahaaaaaa . . . as long as you were jacking it up, you shoulda added some shocks!!! Looks cool, but yeah, getting closer to how you have to balance on a unicycle, so I can see how it would be much more prone to both nose AND tail dives!
Yeah my boy did say to just take some bike shocks and just mount it for props.
It was getting heavy though and my time/ efforts are better spent elsewhere
@owpete I ride with the nose elevated to .04 to give me clearance on uphill runs. Both of my nosedives have been going up hill
