my mate mini.......
















one of our local's, mini smashed his back wheel up some 4-5 months ago, since then we've been trying to get him a proper wheel set ( 16" ) .....try as we might it has been near impossible..
then by chance, taking to Ian, he and his lad Jamie had decided to upgrade to a 20" leaving his 16" redundant.. 2+2 =4 if you catch my meaning..
while swapping parts about I also decided to give it a lick of paint..
SPEC'S...
frame/forks.. Hoffman bikes
bars.. commencal school
stem.. haro
grips.. odi longnecks
wheels.. haro 36 spoke
tyres.. ringworm bk/space invader ft
seat/post.. primo/odyssey intact
cranks.. 3 peice?
chainring.. shadow w/bashguard
pedals.. dmr v8
brakes.. tech77 lever/ flybikes u brake
mod's.. loads'n'loads.... ( nil really )
anyone who's seen little mini ride knows that he rip's.... really looking forward to seeing him at the park again..

Right attention all !!!!!

So.... Chatting to sunil today and it came about that we should all try and get together once more before the winter gets here.
Location.... Seeing as there's been a distinct lack of a visit to our now year old spine mini by the Oxford crew, I thought that Banbury should be the venue...
Date.... Well sunil said maybe Sunday ( that's this one coming ) I know that proberbly won't be possible at such short notice for some of you, so we need to get a date together.. Then keep our fingers crossed for the weather...
so, Ian, Sunil, crowman, Alex and just about anyone else who thinks they should be there get on and leave a comment so we can get this sorted....
for those of you who aren't familiar with our spine mine here's the spec's....
5' main ramp with hip, double coping spine, 6'wide volcano, 7' extension 3 1/2' sub box 10'wide..
and I'm sure you all know the other stuff we have here, so that's about it....
lets be avin yah then

More new bits...

Yeah well, call me a hypocrite, see if I care! I know I said that these cost too much money; I know I said that lots of people have had 'issues' with them... Well after my last riding session, I knew I needed to do something about the hombre & the lack of stopping power.

An impulsive trip to Broadribbs & I came home with what I thought was a grey brake. When I got back & matched it up on my bike it was clear to see that it was, in fact, brown. I asked if they could get me a black or grey one & was told there was a long lead time on more stocks of fly brakes. So I indulged my Orange fetish & went with...more orange!

Took me some time to set the baby up but after a couple of hours and some bloody hands it was all ready to roll.

I'll update as soon as I have got to ride her again with my thoughts...





*Update*
Without wishing to jinx my new brake, it appears to offer superior braking to the old Hombre & the dreaded 'duck-quacking' sound fx is only notable by its absence... yay!

Fucking Rubbish

I tell you, some bike companies have come a long way over the years & in the changing face of BMX, a company has to stay ahead of the pack to stay successful.

At the other end of the spectrum there is SE bikes, what the fuck is going on at their HQ?!? Did they hand the design brief over to Kays catalogue or Argos R&D or something!?!?

To think back to how Awe struck we were over SE racing Quads, PK's, Floval Flyers etc of olde, this is a fucking travesty. Scott Breithaupt must be pissed...


The net result of blinkered, price-point marketing goons...

rant over


*update* here's the original Quad
