    So the other day I was testing out the new boardtrack racer and noticed the front Monarch forks bending when cruising and while braking....SKETCHY! I researched trusses and decided to build my own with stuff from my shop. A broken Huffy frame, a bent rear sprocket, a grinder, drill, and some ingenuity came together to make some rad looking forks! P1090497.JPG P1100502.JPG P1100503.JPG P1100505.JPG

    mmmm, rusty bits :) the use of a sprocket is particularly rustic :)

    dude...get some rear caliper brakes....just speaking from experience, thats all.

    murphy says that the chain will come off at the same time the cable snaps, which coincidently will be when your approaching a hairpin bend on a cliff at about 50mph.

    i hate the idea myself but i still refuse to ever rely on one brake only.
