Sumo: I just made a call to Matt & it seems that this is as close as you are going to get to the 2 sets of flanges we have.

(IMG:http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c230/J1B/BMX/SKyway/IMG_1188.jpg)


Seems that Matt has them tagged to be used on some medium term projects that we are working on & does not want to part with them at any price.Best bet would be to ask for some in the classified section here or see if Ted Carl has any spare ones hidden away.


Despite our XL TA actually being "Totally Aerodynamic" with the 5 spoke THUG wheels on it , there is something inherently wrong with keeping these slick mags & tires on it unless we are going for a downhill speed run record <very unlikely> A new set of flanged graphites will get fitted to this bike , might keep the sweetskins on it still for street riding , no use wearing down black rainbow Comp III skinwalls.

Can't wait for a few more sets of those 10 inch rise bars to turn up & get fitted to some of my other riders , they make a good bike with GT Pro bars even better to ride around on. I have been assured that they are coming "soon" , before xmas anyway


When the 24inch graphite Tuffs arrive we will look into the logistics of designing & fabricating a few sets of flanges that resemble the very early Skyway prototype hubs to give them a real old skool look , it seems there are now 7 reinforcement ribs around the hub of the new 24inch mags instead of the original 5 , so Teds flanges won't cover up the hub properly, but something like the one below will (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

best of luck with hunting down unobtanium.

Matt, the house is perfect, just needs a bike room and the owner to except our rude offer!!! I was suggesting to the house owner except a Harvy Norman style arrangement...8000 months interest and repayment free contract????

Hope the trip is going smooth after your earlier mishap, and good on you for helping out...but I agree with Kurt if there was Cook Bros in the back....he'd still be waiting, while you were checking the serial numbers!

Look forward to catching up with you when you make it up...I'll be sure to hand over your Hutch...I've got something in my eye....honestly

Hey Matt, I bought two sets just incase I decided I want to rechrome but I haven't....I think Claude has some still...pretty pricey, but really nice...I've got the blue, he also did red....
