Which one of these is better. Freestyle Ingenuity or SickInnovations. I've been leaning toward Freestyle Ingenuity's cages but, thought I would get some input first. New to stunting and want to set the bike up right before hand. Just a little background on me been riding for 28 years. Raced for 2. Found myself running the roads around where I live like it was my personal track a couple weeks ago and encountered a boat backing into his driveway, a dog, gravel, and people in the middle of the road. This got me thinking maybe I should tryout stunting.

F.I. are good (can tell you from experience)

dont have really any knowledge of SickInnovations...heard theyre good tho. check out the website.

racing 905, i dont like how they look, but i must say theyve impressed me a couple times. my buddes bike got RUN OVER by a car and came out wiht just a couple scrapes on it. one on the tail section and the cage was scratched too. impressive.


but i personally like and use freestyle ingenuity.

:twocents:

i have a 905, works good, but kills cornering clearance more than alot of cages. only problem i ever had with it was a crack on the right side at the weld. from my understanding it's normal on alot of the more rigid cages because the frame will flex a bit, but the steel cage doesn't like to, so you end up with a hairline crack. no biggie.

+1 on the FI cage though. they have a big following, for a reason.

Coming from being sponsored by 905 and now sick innovations, I would go with either of those.

905's new cages are beefy as fuck...they are really really well imporved on an already good design.

Yea, you cant corner well...but stunt bikes arent knee draggers. You cant have the best of both worlds...thats just how it is.

SI cages are dope also.


I personally dont like FI, i dont agree with the designs, unless you have an F4i, they make a nice f4i cage.

I got an old 905 cage on my fighter. When i got it off a stunt bike, it was a little bent but still bolted right up. There isn't a loop under it so. it doesn't hit when I stoppie it. I like the cage. It looks massive and it is. I wrap the end next to my shinns with foam. Ouch that hurts WHEN you hit your shin on it.

Seems durable ass hell. I'm waiting to take pics of my bike before i destroy it, but I'll let you know how it holds up !

I haven't scraped the cage yet, but it seems like my pegs will hit first ??

I had an FI, but I sucked, so it came off and I stopped trying lol. I dealt with Sick Innovations before (Ian, directly), and he was phenomenal. We used his 12 bar to put my bike at 12 for some bike shows (yeah, poser only, but whatever lol, it got pics with HOT chicks).

Actually the new 905 cages are no longer shin busters.

Being new to stunting, as I was once not too long ago, it really depends on what you are going to be attempting. If you are just wanting something to hold up in case you lay it over lightly, go with FI or Stuntaid. But if you are going to start attempting circles or something that will require you in dropping your bike alot during practice go with 905, Powers, or SI!! These cages are built like tanks! One up side with 905 is that if you ever brake, bend or mangle it, they will replace or fix it for free minus shipping.

Personally I went with 905 for my practice/streetbike and FI for my competition/showbike.

here is a pic of my old F2 with 905's on it


Aaron is one hell of a guy and he will do just about anything for his customers!

My same exact experience, when i bought my bar . He called me to let me know that my order was taken filled and shipped. If i had any questions call him and he'd walk me through installing it.
Great people people there !!

I think I'm leaning toward the FI. The only reason I'm leaning towards them is that I can take the lower bar off for some curve carving.
