    FIRST MONOSHOCK BMX BIKE VIDEO - GARY TURNER

    Such a killer video. Makes me miss Cali, which is NOT an easy task. Missing my youth on the other hand is a daily occurrence...I actually had an original GT bike. Chrome Frame and fork. I loved that bike. I cracked the frame going for a record (according to the sponsors at the time) bunny hop of...

    Fatbelly Bobber - time for a cool change, now the Toadmaster

    maybe don't use a third party photo source so we can actually see the bike...those photo bucket strips are pretty distracting on an otherwise nice picture of a killer bike.

    So I have this brilliant idea...

    Im sure its probably been thought of before, but it it literally just hit me as I was looking at picture of a bike called "devilwing". The name of the bike was below the photo of the bike in a cool, artistic font...same as they do in car mags...then it hit me. What would it take to turn RRB into...

    HELP!!! EASY OFF RUINED MY ALLOY RIMS!!!

    Ultimately, I had to sand the rim by hand w 120. NOTHING else worked to get the clear off. I even tried brass brush wheels on my Dremel to no avail. I learned the hard way. As far as removing the color from the rear wheel, I just used straight wet Brillo pad and the wheel looks beautiful. As far...

    HELP!!! EASY OFF RUINED MY ALLOY RIMS!!!

    So, here's the long and short of it. Bought a Jamis BOSS cruiser w beautiful blue anodized rims. Went to clean them w a little polish and it ate right through the 35 year old anodize.:envy::envy::envy::20::20::20::headbang:So at that point, made the decision to remove all the color...such a...
