Hi Howardinoz
When i get the sticker machine back up and working ill send you some stickers for that frame to replace the mongoose ones you have on it
Thanks Mark

Sweet!
Thanks Mark.
So...I'm guessing that means this IS an SLA?
Any info about it?

I am not hammering the newbie for the fun of it , but , unfortunately he stepped on a land mine that has been sitting around for a very long time.


If Flatlander's (in general) could keep up something akin to the speed & grace of someone who can figure skate on ice , then it might be worth watching & become a spectator sport.

I have _tried_ to watch Flatland both street & competition , live & on TV , 99% of the time its a hard grind to watch.
Stop , go , indecision , touch the ground , + wh00p up a few really trick moves in between , all the arm twirling & leg unsteadiness etc etc just embarrassed their sport & wasted good video tape.
No flow , No balance , No style , No points , off to Siberia & get re-trained at the bicycle ice circus until they happy with you.
I am the angry Russian Gym Trainer & Drill Sargent from Full Metal Jacket combined , packing an MP5 & wearing a ballistic vest this time.

Only seen 1 or 2 guys in the US who knew what they were going to do 3 or 4 steps ahead of time when riding in an open area , could keep up their speed , pull the tricks smoothly , take opportunistic chance that turned up & rode with grace & purpose.
The rest of them riding a _purpose built bike_ flatland bike , could only manage a run/ride that at best a had a 25% enjoyment or w0w factor.

This aint the 1980's where curb endo's , wheelies , rockwalks , jumping , trials riding , high speed freestyling in transit from A to B , getting chased by beer bottle throwing strangers for no reason & all the other stuff we did on our basic all round street assault bike , it's a supposed to be a 21st century offshoot or dedicated discipline of what we were all starting to challenge ourselves & our bikes to do with waay back then.

Flatland for all it's evolution , time , development just don't make the cut when compared to ANY other organized or disorganised BMX based sport.


JB


I'm guessing this is being pointed in my direction, I certainly don't watch any free-style bmx on tv or internet and haven't for the last 20 years, I have far better things to do than surf the net for something that isn't much of an interest to me. I was impressed with the evolution of tricks but as you say these were never possible on the bikes we rode as we didnít have pegs mounted all around the bike to place our feet. I can however appreciate the balance these guys display even if it does take a few kicks of your legs to keep upright

To be honest I just canít get into ice skating though, each to their own I guess smile.gif

damn internet was down this morning so i threw this together. mostly cleaned up survivor parts. a big thanks to gnarley for the great job on the wheels. i'll get some sunshine pics one day.

Geez Proline, sweeeeet throw together, that is stunning...gold on GT always looks awesome...

Oh yeah, I agree with Rob on that one...it is indeed freestyle.... also check out the link brad posted up on the previous page, that guy has complete continuity....

proline2
thanks for the nice replies. when i went for a spin i realized how big the prolines are compared to the GT. no wonder a lot of big fellas put laybacks on them.
i actually put this together with black components a couple of weeks ago and thought it looked quite bland. i had a set of gold ukais laying around with some nice sunshine hubs and sent them off to gnarley for lacing. the rest of the gold bits i had laying around. those sugino maxi cranks i found on ebay and had road race gears on them and the price was right LOL
one thing i have noticed is the master link on the chain "taps" the seat stay on the way through. i may pull it and put a continous chain on. anyone else have this problem with their GT's?
broke L345
wow proline that's pretty nice.

had a minor score today went to a salvo's and bought a racer for five dollars,it had some crappy bmx bars but I spotted a pair of black sprayed dx peddals. The ends are crap but they could pollish up ok.

haven't scored in a while so I got a little rush.

Man that GT came up nice mate. Thanks for the props on the wheels, my pleasure. Wait till you see the set for the Schwinn. wacko.gif In regards to the joining link hitting the frame, just flip it 180 so the clip is on the inside and maybe just add a thin washer to the drive side of the rear axle.

Talk soon mate.

thanks Chris i didn't think of turning it over, i'll try that. i won't be able to put a spacer between the hub and the dropout as i had to spread the frame a bit to get the wheel on as it was. i'm thinking a 3/32 chain may help but that will mean finding a new freewheel as well. fingers crossed turning the master over will do the trick.
i'm nearly there with the schwinn too. finding the correct frame tube sticker is going to be bigger than, um..................think of something huge then multiply it by lots blink.gif

i actually turned a few corners with a 1978 team goose, 1992 robinson pro xl and of course that quicky you were so kind in letting me buy. i did do a DB medium pro a fair while ago but Richie has that beauty now.

some of those freestyle fellas show incredible skills and balance. having said that, i still prefer a good old fashioned 8 man thrash to the finish line.

Not sure how the images appear here so here's test 1.

I agree 100% proline. 8 starters 1 winner..

Damn Allen that GT is sweet. Nice one.
JMCGT
Hey Richie, your carpet is soft..either that or those tyres could use some air..LOL
Allen is your gt nice and light...
Grind, chrome parts would bling it up a bit too..
proline2
hey Rich, i remember that bike. that was a nice build.
Matt it's light alright. i'm going to pop my builds on a scale one day and see what the differences are.
Kurt.
Cool GT Allen - they always have a low fast racer look. V nice mate. Love the chrome and gold.

Hey Mick - LOL - that black one on the left looks like the little known prototype Mega-Moose. Used in the Japanese movie Godzilla vs Mega-Moose.
JMCGT
It would be interesting to see those results Allen...Hutch and gt,s are the lightest frames in steel and jmc,s that i own..
I really wanted a hutch when i was a kid,but could never sell the Patterson to fund it

Volcano
Cheers Richie for the close-up shots of the DB pedals!

Did Super LA's come with padset?...anyone got a photo if they did?
COASTY
Can't help you there Mick.
Has anyone got a seat like this one in the pic below? I give up on mine.
Volcano
What brand is that bike Glenn?
Sorry mate...cant help on the seat.
COASTY
Repco Monoshock. I have a seat but mines rusted out bigtime.
Kurt.
Hey Glenn. The only one I have is on my Repco.

If you want I can send you some close up pics and measurements on the pole/seat setup etc??
COASTY
Thanks Kurt, as you can see I have a seat (sort of !) but I just thought someone might be able to save me a LOT of work. If I can't find one I'm not too worried. I will fix this one.
Mr.BMX
a quick lick'o'paint, she'll be right ;-)

put that with roy,s plate. ..and that will be a top build...

Hey Coasty Wheredya get that pic from?-that ence and gravel look identical to mine-in fact so does that bike!

Take plenty of pics of that resto-should be a fun one. Could you have a go with fibreglass maybe? Builders bog? Or maybe make a mold of it to use as a dolly to whack some tin into shape?
Volcano
Hey Glenn - I just picked one up from Mick Pickles last week! I'm chasing the seat, cranks & front shocks.
Thinking of putting the Eagle mags on it...

COASTY
Sounds good Mick. It'll look cool with the mags.
GTHODAD it is yours. I got the pic out of the Aussie bike thread on here.
I got the shocks for mine from JC. The seat too.
I never thought about the fibreglass. That could work. I like the idea of making a new seat too. I'll see what I can do.
Thanks guys.
Kurt.
Got a pretty good cover on mine too Glenn if you want a close up pic for the pattern and size etc.
COASTY
Yeah that would be good thanks Kurt. Mine came like the pic above so I haven't seen a good one.
