Is that because you've been telling them you've snapped your banjo, or are looking for a new nipple clamp? I can't quite make out which affliction you've got from the photo! See if you can find a Goodridge hose kit. I've found one for peanuts ($20) on http://www.torpedo7.co.nz/products/GOBHHNNHK/tit...

good luck with them. Had a set on a demo board we were given about 9 years ago and we destroyed them in the first day. Could have been pre-production and not as sturdy but I was really unimpressed with the build quality. I do like the idea of the strap layout though, gives more grab for your toes.

looks sweet man! after making my noBS (old green mbs comp16 deck on nosno axles) i can't help but think the nosno softs could do with some modding and some toe-ramps making (maybe just some shaped chopping board to replace the existing flat red plates), adding concave to the foot platform giving mor...

i prefer to be fully locked in and go down with my ship. the board and your legs form a very strong triangle and i feel leaves you less prone to injury than the bail out method. That being said, you need to be able to scoot start on a dirtsurfer unlike a 4 wheel board so cant fully strap in. One foo...

looks very similar to the old G4S truck system. (can't find a decent picture of it on the web anywhere). The idea was always good but the production was rubbish (weak materials, weak pivot and crap bushings). Would be very interesting to see what that style of truck would be like with more refined e...

and if it's none of them and the deck has purple graphics then you have a very old board, which would have an even softer deck and skinnier bolts.

where abouts are you based? Most riders are happy to share the love and let people have a try of different kit before you take the plunge and fork out for a board.

i have to run an extra wide brake axle on my nosno with 10's as i have size 12's and 21 degree forward on the front foot. The extra stability is nice though! Looking forward to seeing it dale. Most people expect the heavy part of a nosno is the trucks because they look so gnarly when in fact it's th...

Tignes is a lot of fun in the summer. Think we managed to hit all the downhill bike runs and got a fair bit of firetrack and piste in too.

you can certainly have a good trip on an mbs, but make sure you go for a hydraulic brake setup. If you want to get techy on the bike runs and hit some of the rockier stuff a nosno pro downhill with 9's or 10's if the way to go, it just makes life easier. I'd still be happy bombing firetrack on an mb...

i've done 3 summer tours to the alps, varying from a week to a month in length (wish i was a student again!). Do it. If you want to properly enjoy your riding, ride a brake board and the better your brakes the easier life will be. See them more as a decelerator. Loads of different types of track to ...

used to ride flows on my mountainboard, they were bastard heavy and you had no feel!

There was that much slack play that the board could wander left and right quite a co...

they look best with a good rock polish. My rear alloy looks more like a sponge after 7 years of abuse.

Wow! I don't think this will be achievable here in Portugal with the kind of Mediterranean vegetation we normally have. Hard thorns from bramble bushes are a killer, at least to T1s. What kind of protection do you use on your tires against punctures? I use anti-puncture tape but it's far from foolp...
