dusting off the cobwebs of a bike that has never been ridden.

 

 

ive been trying to post this for theee days in the picture of the day thread but i keep getting the error message below when the photo is being uploaded, any idea craig? any way to enable multiple pages to a thread? could help greatly with that. otn just upgraded and the site looks like a government web site and doesnt flow at all anymore. another nail in the coffin, if this forum was faster/ better with mobile picture uploading it would be game over.

Should I put this on the front of the inpulse? I had front maguras in 2001... it used to be the standard but I do like stiff brakes and this inpulse fork doesn't inspire me.

Oven been riding my touring bike and bmx cruisers for so long... this feels CRAZY , like so far forward I'm already in an endo!! Looking forward to breaking this frame! Finish reminds me of my woodman, which had a drop bb -20 and I loved...

I thought the Inpulse fork pretty flexy, but not bad as far as brakes. the tnn fork I'm back to is super stiff!

We’ll see, modified another part - think I’ll be able to roll w the hope 2.... honestly I love the low engagements of this early version, makes it feel more vintage?? I don’t know, there’s a style of riding that goes with lower engagement hubs....a greater annoyance to your bike.

Found a nice amphitheater a few minutes drive.. has an insane loose dirt rock wall and tree logs- tons of sidehop/gap/fun

rebuilt with trialtech fork, comfortable grips, and Vee brakes on heatsink adaptors front and rear. also back to the loving support of the Der Kaiser projekt out back.

Did a few more hops today.. the bike feels like a child’s bike it is so tiny compared to the gu I was on... an American made steel frame with a mix of their geometry would Be interesting...

 

here i am in the ”pogo stem amoré”

  • If you've got balance you should ride your bike on a slackline! ... right? The snow chased us indoors last weekend so we tried the slackline again, but almost twice as long this time at just over 25 feet! it was Way harder! and regular trials stuff too.
