    I'd say the only disadvantage is that you'd be able to barspin and do tricks.

    No, the only potential problem will be awkward commuting geometry.

    My daily commute is 20km each way on a Charge Freestyler. The Charge geo is ok because the frame is designed around the fork but the extra weight is noticeable.

    What frame are you putting the starfacker forks on?
