    Prolly why RPM didnít bother with caster blocks or steering knuckles.

    The stock ones are good enough and there is not enough demand.

    Just marketing I am guessing.

    Wheelie bar on big wheel 4Pede.

    I am working on my Big Foot Monster Pede.

    The stock version works, when it stays in place. Without a wheelie bar it just flips.
