Reply to gauging ears? 4/1/2011 1:12 PM

PS, do not wear bone or wood plugs unless your ears are fully healed and relaxed, since bone and wood are porous they can spread infection if worn while ear is bleeding. If your ear starts bleeding, take the plugs out and let them heal.

Most standard ear rings are a 14-16 gauge, so 12 gauge isn't a substantial jump. Keep in mind gauges only come in even number increments, the lower the number, the bigger the gauge and also the bigger the flare on plugs . This is very important to remember ... more »

Awesome job man! Congrats! Interesting fact; the Ramones wrote a song about former president Ronald Reagan going to Bitberg Germany called "Bonzo goes to Bitberg". What the relevance of Bitberg is I don't know.......

Really? I thought vertical dropouts were bad. There's no play for chain tensioning and it seems that it would be easy for the wheel to fall off in the event that the rear axle got loose? Sorry I'm no expert on dropouts....

I would say no to the Cardinal frame, I wouldn't trust the vertical dropouts. While vertical dropouts are common on some kinds of bikes (road bikes) I wouldn't like them on a BMX bike because if your rear axle got loose and shifted a bit and you went ... more »

After my daughter was born I thought I'd never ride again, and while you won't see me jumping down a 12 set anytime soon, I still get out even if it's just for a cruise. Being older and having a family makes me value BMX way more than I ever did when ... more »

At least he's putting in some effort to learn and that gets you a hearty handshake my good friend! Hahaha! It looks good man, keep up the good work!

Hmmmm, there are too many awesome riders to name here, but the guys who inspire me to ride the most are; Terry Adams (flat) Matthias Dandois (flat) Chase Hawk (great flow) and some Japanese cat named York, super tech stuff. Corey Martinez for interesting ... more »

Hmmm, does Kink have their frames made by the same people who make DK? That frame has the same finish as my DK Kvant 2010....

Sure Easternbiker, I'd love to see some of your pics! Well gentlemen, after long hours of deliberation I have settled on an Olympus PEN camera. I bought it at a local camera store which I am very thankful for because the gentlemen at Staples knew nothing ... more »

I ride a DK Kvant, for $400 it has full chromoly frame forks and handlebars. It has a 20.5 toptube, which is a bit small for me (I'm 6ft) but is very comfortable and I don't smack my knees off the bars or stem. For the money I think it's one of the best ... more »

I've never been a fan of schecters, I can't get used to the necks. Ibanez's are nice for shred style guitarplaying, but are a little too "clean" sounding for my tastes, if you run a lot of effects Ibanez's are good. Believe it or not I really am quite ... more »

That video is the single greatest thing EVER! If you lived where I live you would understand how fantastically funny this is! Owning a fixie doesn't make you a scumbag, but using terms such as "post punk" "post noise" or "post ironic" does. I think the ... more »

Well, if all you have is a driveway way you could learn some flatland. Seriously, don't knock till you try it. Every rider could benefit from flat training because it helps you gain bike control, and that is beneficial for every style of riding. Rock ... more »

Are you shitting me? I'm up to my knees in the stuff, and we have another 2 months of it coming. We always get a big nasty storm at the end of April here, last year it dumped almost 3 feet within 24 hours at the end of April. I won't be able to ride ... more »

Now tut tut Mr. Beckford, we must be PC here, the correct term is "gender impaired"!

Reply to inline skaters 3/4/2011 8:14 PM

The real question here is; who the hell rides inline skates anymore?! I didn't even know they made those things anymore, I haven't seen anyone on rollerblades in like 10 years!

Reply to New camera 3/4/2011 7:53 PM

Wow, those pics are really crisp! What kind of bike is that? Love the Vans sticker, I have the same one on my helmet. Thanks for the recommendations, I think I shall pick out a new camera this weekend.

Reply to Buying an Ambulance. 3/4/2011 7:47 PM

That is epic my friend! A couple of pointers though, it's probably cheaper to replace the locks and ignition then to get a key made to fit. Seeing how it hasn't been driven in a long time it almost certainly needs engine work, replace all fluids and ... more »
