    Ditched my Highline for some new wheels

    I was getting really tired of riding my Highline about a month ago, so I broke my foot and am on four wheels now!

    This wasn't from the day of the crash



    Here's after some surgery



    Here's my new ride. It's no Turner, but it gets the job done. I'm thinking it needs some ti hardware and a brake upgrade. Any ideas for how to put a Juicy 7 on there?

    ..maybe it's just me, but I think the retro styling is hip!


    ...as for that foot....

    Do you keep your painkillers in that bag? How about bolting on a beer cooler?
    Oh, and some I9 wheels would pimp out your cart.

    Yeah, you're right, my ride is kind of weak. Believe me, going from my Highline to this thing is pretty bad. These cheapo components are really killing me. I'll have to check with I-9 to see if they make any 8" wheels.

    They had some custom BMX wheels in their workshop a few months back so you might get lucky

    I notice a custom color from Olympic on your new frame - was there an upcharge?

    Sorry to hear about the foot Nick - it was great meeting you up in Sequoia (I was back up last weekend and rode Nelson and BC again - so good every time!) - my buddies place is finally done, so got to enjoy the cold beer & hot tub at the bottom of BC.

    Went thru a bad injury myself after whistler last year - surgery etc. insued - but almost a year later and I'm freeriding again - and you're younger so you'll heal faster I would think
    Good luck and heal fast!

    Hey Mac,

    The cabin sounds good. I'm jealous! I broke my foot the weekend after the trip we took up there last month, glad I didn't miss that one. I'm sure I will recover well and will be pretty cautious until it is feeling 100%.

    how did it happen? im assuming its bike related. after those pics of the foot (very impressive) you owe an explanation. heal fast man!

    edit: never mind, just saw the other thread. i hate how the apparently lesser crashes end up causing the worst injuries... again heal up fast.

    Really lame pedal position in that pic. For a while I was doing that a lot it seemed. Don't know why. I have some Twenty6s now that I like a lot.
