Wow, I had no idea they were making bikes!! Adding a set of San Quentins to my NS parts list... cool

That Groovetech setup is so simple I'm amazed no one thought of it before. Love to try that out.


When I bunnyhop I hear a creak and I don't know if it's my bike or my joints. Oh well.

Awesome! Cept it's "Jon"...

He stayed with wilkerson back then for a while in CA. Brought back a piece of the ramp that we used on his ramp when we rebuilt it before Freestylin came to town.


Here is Ron way back in 88 at a haro show in NC.

I borrowed the window shop sign for the show and got everyone to sign it...

I still have some 2hip zines down under my house with some old magazines. Have to dig them out and do some scans.  Would have got them in 89 or 90 in California.

reply to my own message, digging up the old thread as I found a 2hip zine today while looking for something.  Bit crusty....

Remember when Ron Wilkerson did the 2hip contest in Austin in 1988 where the vert ramp was on a floating dock/barge on Town Lake? big_smile

Was reminded by this:
Bob Burnquist's Floating Skate Ramp in Lake Tahoe
