do you ever stop making stuff belac :p clear hubs would look sick, if u dont do it send the idea to trampa, they like making hubs in different styles

in reply to your question to saul, the risers might be to adjust the tip angle to 35 degrees? as the pro 95 has 15 degree tips if i remember right which makes it a bitch to freeride smoothly, i have to slide around most things or use stuff as berms to get around corners

i predict in about a year or two this type of mountainboard forum will be jam packed with peoples home builds and mods, has happened allready in most board sports i'm into, think mountainboard will get there soon. and then someone will finally invent elctromagnetic shoe bindings:p

I have magnetic bindings, they're not electromagnetic, but magnetic all the same. Best used with skyhooks though. I'll post pics if you want, they're not much to look at, but they're still pretty cool

if you want to lower the weight of that board considerably stick some 8 inch tyres on it like the primo alpha lites

quicker acceleration, slower top speed. Iv rode everything i used to ride on my 9s, gonna put them on this winter and see how they go though :p but iv not had a problem making the change, i still ride the same places, and i ride them faster but thats due to improved technique

cool, when it gets to half term i think me and my mate Jonny are going to go ride the hill at red hill and try to get test rides on some other boards to see if we want to get new components or a new board all together.

the essence of the frankenboard conception is possibly found in down time. when that winter blustery storm rocks thru all week and you have to huddel next to the fire with nothing but scrabbel and tea, when your injured and out from riding from a seasson, or like me when you work to much and let your imagination run wild whilst you should be concentratin on something a bit more important.

lately i had a look thru my spares box and came across some of the many broken cube trucks i've collected, also found a spring set and some mellow yellows. after a few lunchtimes of dremmeling, tapping, screwing and swearing i came up with these saved from the grave trucks. gonna go and test them some time this weekend, but from playing in the driveway they seem to feel not to shody.

That truck is so crazy they turned the world upside down and created New Zealand in order to contain it.

so works brilliantly, gets rid of the mid wobbel of the cube and the chatter of the springs. you can hoon it at full noise and still carve off the speed if you want. pretty chuffed with these, gonna do the same to a few more trucks i've got. did a little bit of appaling footage of testing them in the local park last night, but the camera broke and it has the image half covered, only one ride down acctually recorded:mad: think i've killed another camera:o and now photobucket won't upload it.


i like the t nut idea mario, deffinetly a cheaper way of sorting out threding for the compression screw. i bought a tap (hole threder) kit and used that, got alot of furniture stuff i'm gonna do with it as well so was worth getting. but if anybody else wants to try this i think the t nut should do fine. the tap
i found worked was metric and 8mm x 1.25mm.

brennig: for some reasson nz has loads of gi boards kicking around, so i spose this mod might be usefull for some of those who had to ditch them cos of the broke and now unavailable cubes. thy'll be truly crazy if i can drill a round shaft thru the king pin assembly and bypass the cube entirely. the other ones i had a play with were cut up gi hangers on mbs nylon baseplates, gotta get some supa stiff trampa dampas for that one tho as they're way to loose.

for the tap, the best drill bit is 6.8mm, but 7mm works fine if you can't get the 6.8mm.
