Pretty much anything is more comfortable than a B&M stand-up.


Lol....Ever been on a Togo stand up?

Let me tell you what, I would rather ride Georgia Scorcher ten times in a row than Great American Scream Machine once.

Honestly B&M stand-up restraints aren’t all that bad once you figure out how to ride them. The main trick is basically to actually stand up instead of sitting on the bicycle seat thingy. Try to keep the seat a few inches below you, and putting your head toward sometimes helps too.

Every standup by every manufacturer is a turd, the only difference is the smell.

2 + 2 = donkey!

As a 6'3 individual I agree. I would like to ride Riddler's Revenge some day since it's "the best" stand-up but I have a strong feeling I will not like it that much at all despite the excellent layout due to my disdain for stand-ups.

I actually like Togo stand-ups, but I can easily see how those restraints could be torture devices for others.

I would like to know how that's possible?

Togos in Japan are actually smooth. And I never found Shockwave nor Skyrider rough (outside of that trick part).

That's the one reridable B&M stand-up. It's also the last one they built so maybe they learned bigger isn't better with them.
