  1. Really digging the tange forks on it... the minimal offset probably makes the steering pretty quick....
  2. Love the pic of Davidow riding the rig... would bet those are silver-flange graphites he's jamming. Any sense of the date on that pic?
  3. i tried it.... crashed badly. got the brakes mixed up. note to crew: have your brake pads dialed, and stay out of the streets - unless you can hold an endo Mike Buff style...
  4. S- I remember that post --- going to find it now. Right after I do a miami hopper to the other side.... no worries... i got this....
  5. I was goofy footed when I got my first skateboard at age eight. I get that's a natural thing. However, here's my question... why do our brothers' from another mother run their brakes on the other side. Rear brake on the left? That changes the way you learn (and do) Miami Hoppers.... if we've discussed this already, please B-Slap me.... Seems like we need to socialize this.
  6. Wow! That is gorgeous.... the tires are completely off the chain....
  7. wow is all i can say... this thing is sweet. i'd love to see a blackwall snakebelly on the rear - but this is ridiculous. well done.
  8. He's never failed a challenge as far as I'm aware...
  9. Superb on every possible level... impossible to duplicate. Well done!
  10. agreed. in most instances, the originals are easily purchased and inspected up close and personal. it's just the way it is... this guy is a blowhard though, have to agree on that...
  11. Looks great! Have fun with the build... What kind of stem is that? The reach looks perfect for an inverted stem...
  12. Ronnie, Great to see you back at work - hats off on another beautiful build. Looks tough and nimble at the same time - really balanced. I'm totally digging the all black with graphites and gold accents. Definitely one of the coolest JMC's on this post... and that's saying a whole hell of a lot - can't wait to see it in person. Put me down for a JMC Cruiser ride... Rob.
  13. So I worked on the brakes of my JMC cruiser this morning. Put on a set of matthauser pads and tried to install my terrycable. Problem is, I am not sure I have done the terrycable right, because I had to remove the "star shaped" metal nut that meshes in with the black plastic round adjuster dial to get it to work.... effectively losing adjustability from the dial.... make any sense? Basically, the terry cable itself is too thick to fit into a regular MX1000 - so, it comes with some pieces of hardware that would seem to fix all this, but problem is, it doesn't fit with the brake dial at all..... Anyone have any ideas? Or a set of instructions they can Post??? Thanks!!! Rob.
  14. Brett - is that third pic you posted a rear?
  15. I have had nothing but outstanding dealings with him... the quality of hubs and integrity of dealings are top-notch in my opinion. give hime some breathing room to respond.... tou will NOT be disappointed..... Hubs I recently got are probably the best I have ever had in 25 years of being a major hub snob.... complete with orange seals... delicious....
  16. Maybe a stupid one... but I gotta ask. Should I lube the cable prior to installation?? I would lube any other cable (WD-40), but this one seems so smooth right out of the bag... I suppose because it is teflon lined, or something? Any guidance appreciated! Thanks, Rob.
  17. Dudes - outstanding posts for sure! Chromey those pics from BITD are totally cool! And thanks for taking the time to lay it all out as you did. I am so pumped on getting a ground master now.... This is my new full time mission. If anyone has any leads, please let me know. Thanks again, Rob.
  18. Thanks Donvader... I really like your ride - looks like a ton of fun to jam on... great angles and parts selection. Would you mind taking it apart and weighing the frame and fork for me? It would be helpful if you remove the headset and BB cups before you do this. LOL!!! J/K..... Seriously though, if you had to guess the weight of the frame what would you guess? Closer to 5lbs or 7lbs? Anyone? Thanks again... Rob.
  19. Want to build a fun old-scool inspired rider... really for flat and some light street/park stuff... After about a decade of thinking about this, I am zero'ing in on a 1992 Ground Master F/F. I have never ridden one and have to admit, that I am focused on keeping my bikes light. Even though I was out of the scene by the late '80s, I kept tabs on it and couldn't help but notice that bikes got REAL HEAVY for a while there.... My question to you guys, is the 1992 Ground Master "light?" Would love your views. Last OS ride was a Trickstar which I loved weight -wise. Can someone please tell me how much a 92 Ground Master weighs? Or at lease give me a sense relative to a Trickstar? Thanks!!! Also - any pics for inspiration would be most appreciated!! Rob.
  20. LOL... took the pic in a rush when i came home from work... right after I pee'd off the terrace. I am definitely lowering the seat and thinking of going for a set of gold dx's. So, I am the only member here rocking mags and a uni? No other pics? Let's see 'em fellas! And, oh yeah... Thanks for the kind words on this bike. Rob.
