It's Friday, I'm restless. Somebody post some more pics quick.
www.martin-bike.com
If I guess correctly, most of you dudes on here don't have wives??? That's my excuse. LOL.
Mr.BMX
Front-end loader has big Cheng-Shin Knobbies ;-)
Mr.BMX
I was given the choice "Bikes or girlfriend"

So, i'm single with a load of bikes ;-)
Mr.BMX
PIX for Martin-bike ;-)





Enjoy !
www.martin-bike.com
Yeah, me too. Lots of bikes and not much common sense.
www.martin-bike.com
Noooooooooo!!! Mr.BMX, you're cruel dude!
prosight
Martin i have a profile head tube stickers with the clear backing if you need one
dugga
I have a wife and kid..... but will swap for a mint looptail quad and a pair of NOS graphites ha ha ha
www.martin-bike.com
Chris, yes please. I may do my own set of repros based on these.

I have a spare set of Santa Anna GT decals from Biagio if you want those? Not quite an even swap so maybe you can throw in that garbage gusseted early 80s chrome Robinson. Or we can sort it out with the 24" Ukai?
prosight
lol...you can just have it..
prosight
www.martin-bike.com
Holy cow, what are you guys trying to do to me???

Dugga, can you post pics of your wife and kid?
dugga
OK, here's the kid....
AndyDiamond
OK, it's my 2,000th post so I thought I'd post a pic of my GHP cause that was my first build.

(it's changed a little since this pic)

AndyDiamond
Profile 'bits'?

lol
freestyler
no got some today thanks anyway lolhehe
freestyler
here they are profile cranks hehehe

cheeeerssss freestylerrrrrrr
freestyler
so iam pretty sure i dont need cranks andy
freestyler
thanks for asking bud
AndyDiamond
Ok - what do you mean by bits?

Stems are pretty hard to find unless you get those ones that come up on ebay all the time (not old school so not correct for an old school build).
Likewise Profile hubs horseshoe pedals etc.

Repop decals for those crank arms are easy to get.
prosight
so what profile stuff do you need then Jas
prosight
i think that was the best bit that i got with my NOS profile kit was NOS profile hubs..
www.martin-bike.com
Awesome GHP Andy. Greg would be proud!

On the topic of Profiles . . . still looking for the black Champ Pro test from an Aussie mag. Thanks Mr.BMX for searching.

Is it true that Profile produced Hutch frame sets? Frame is the same other than the extra bar. Some fork models are the same also.
AndyDiamond
Um - one of the Hutch guys would be able to fill you in on that Marty - there is some kind of tie in.
Thruster = Hutch etc....
Pofile made the Hucth Aerospeed arms etc...


Yeah, Greg Hill himself siad it was sweet - a nice compliment indeed.
Just gotta pop some NOS Hutch cages on the pedals and change the PPP chainwheel out for a power disc set up.
JohnnyRingo
Yes it is true. Here's a link to the unofficial history of Hutch.

http://www.hutch-bikes.com/hutch_history.htm
www.martin-bike.com
Johnny Ringo . . . cool name. A bike with that name would sell like hot cakes!
Jarvi
I hope some-one is documenting all the decal options for current model bikes so in 25 year's time there will be a database that says, "the clear back Santa Ana goes on a ...."

Martin, I think I might move into risk management consulting as you must have far too much money. I bought a Diamond Back V-Link back in about '96 and I think GT was producing their first i-drives about then weren't they? Memory is not good but I remember admiring them but thinking they were soooo expensive. I nearly went with a GT Zaskar hardtail but decided on the full suspension.

James
www.martin-bike.com
James,

Ha!

I've got every model class GT MTB made since 1996. Including a carbon i-drive and a carbon STS. I also have a Zaskar Team. I rode all of them but not anymore. All the frames will be framed on a wall one day . . . when I settle down in one country.

Waiting for my new Santa Cruz Nomad to arrive. Would love to post pics but Mr.BMX and Freestyler will spit chips! LOL

Martin
COASTY
Hey Martin, Love the GT frame before. I rode an I -drive (2004) last week for the first time. I couldnt believe how light they are.
www.martin-bike.com
Cool!

See Mr.BMX and Freestyler, there are others here that care. Mountain biking is just an extension of BMX. Many of the top pros were BMX racers from BITD.

Take Brian Lopes for example. That guy has been racing since he was a little kid. He's an awesome rider now and consistently wins 4X and previously, downhill.

Difference is you can ride in the most far out of places - places you can't get to by car or would take days to trek to. It's still got that "boys toys" allure about it - you know, tinkering with technology and grease. Plus it's healthy.

Also cool is being challenged by very scary bone breaking, blood letting stuff. Sometimes you stop and walk, sometimes you try, fail, crash and get hurt . . . but sometimes you try and you make it. It's a great feeling overcoming your fears with the bike skills you learnt as a kid riding BMX!

Martin
freestyler
ok i need for my nos profile xl champ

COASTY
I think most mtb'ers are nuts. Some of the things they pull off are amazing. Then again people said that about me bitd!
www.martin-bike.com
Don't worry, I won't post any more pics of MTBs here. Going riding tomorrow so will get my fix then.

So, anybody selling an Aero plate?

And . . . has somebody here done some repro decals recently? I was told that after the show, we'd be able to know. Please reveal . . .
Mattblack
Ahh BMX rules
Here is GT I got this week
I'm not into freestyle at all, but I think you are allowed to have one of everything ?
Oh by the way its a mid 80's GT performer jr 16"
My little fella turn 3 next year so i think i'll be riding it for now ????


www.martin-bike.com
Freestyler, don't you have a Champ Pro? What's an XL Champ - is this a later model?

Coastvl, mountain biking is fun! That's where martin-bike came from, a pun on the sound of mountain bike. LOL

Martin
prosight
good luck on the horse shoe profile pedals Jas they go for BIG $$$ if they are for sale...
www.martin-bike.com
Wow cool, I didn't even know they made 16" freestyle bikes. Now I want a kid so I've got an excuse to build more bikes.
prosight
Champ pro has a 19inch tt and a champ pro XL has a 20inch tt..
