the extended crown will make your bike sit lower but it's not ridable anymore. If you want to ride it - just take the spring off. For a showbike I'd suggest the extended crown.

just my 2cents.

Id do both ! Take the spring out and use the extended crown but only when you show.. When you ridin I'd use the regular crown and the spring for the bouncy action! ;)

from what I remember, the extended crown gives you 2 extra inches to lower it with the spring without hitting the frame (as long as the frame isn't thicker than stock) while riding. When I was looking to make a custom extended crown, I think that's what we figured it out to be.

if you have the extended crown you can ride it, the only thing is that you would have to have perfect balance, or you will end up jamin the pedal into the gound, or if ur a not so light person, you can raise the fendermore towards the front so it lifts it off the ground, so when you sit on the bike the fender isnt eatin up the ground.. if ur gonna be ridin low like that might not wanna have ur nice chrome twistd pedals or what ever, i alwase use my plastic crates when i lower it that much (just incase)

no, it's not weak - it's not supposed to ride with though. It just that the fork hits the tank/frame when you try a turn.
