True! I widened my stance last week to 24 inches to see if I could get away with it for more stable landings, turns out I cant It felt more awkward carving and I hurt my front knee after only a few days with this stance. Soon enough when I can ride again my stance will go back to 23.4 inches(I'm 6 ft 1). It was interesting how that half inch or so seemed to make a huge difference for me.
