thanks guys. i moved it so now i'm exactly at 20.

unfortunately i don't have the option to stay true twin set up at 20.5 so i chose to opt for a twin with a 20 width. i'm going to check it out.

i'm appreciative of the advice.

my friends always told me, "hey if you want to butter, you need to MAX out your stance, but i see your logic.

i'll report back soon.

hopefully 23.5 -> 20 isn't too drastic!

Yeah stance width might be your issue I'm 6' tall and 210 pounds riding 161 wides. I ride a 24" stance. 23.5" waaaaay too big for you probably!

this may be a dumb question but this is measured from the very center of each baseplate disc correct?

Correct. From center to center.

Not gonna lie it's going to feel weird at first. If you don't like it head up to 21.

Don't go too narrow or you'll look like a noob.
