That would be awesome. My dream bag would allow really quick attachment. Be stable enough to run and climb (ish) in ( so lots of padding, adjustibility, and possibly waist and chest straps) and be able to store a bottle of water and maybe a water proof. A place for pads would be cool but once I have...

Kite Boarding Setup

Hi I have mountain boards, I have a power kite, but I have never been kite boarding. I live in Devon so there is an abundance of great spots to do it. I have just never got around to it, having always ended up going down hilling or free styling and then kiting with my partner. I really want to get i...

I like the idea of a quick release break system and would like to see a tut

Firstly, I kicked ass today, took my new board out, got some crazy down hill action. Secondly Had my ass kicking served right back to me when half way down an epic run I ill-advisedly attempted to hack down a wooden signpost using only my shin bone. I found my self in a quandary, I was injured, limp...

If the axle length is only a few mm too long, you could use some washers/spacers between the axle nut and wheel hub to snug things up a bit. If you look in the picture I posted, the older model torsion Bionics had gold colored aluminum spacers to keep wheels from sliding back and forth. MBS All Ter...

Yep. Those are GI Bionics that use torsion cubes for truck tension/responsiveness. The cubes are made with elastomers. GI made torsion cubes with several different levels of stiffness/hardness. If your axles have a lot of play, either the cubes are one of the softest GI made or the cubes have worn ...

Hi

They are definitely torsion bionics. Can someone let me in on how I should maintain them as they are totally new to me as I have always used matrix. At the moment the trucks seem a little loose and I can freely pivot the axels with my hand.

Bionic trucks

Hi all, hopefully you can help me out. I recenty bought a second hand board. When it arrived I discovered that the trucks were very different to the matrixs I have always used. I think they may be Gi bionics, However they have A top hanger but no springs. Are they a kind of vector hub? They dont loo...
