Old School Meets New School In This Dyno Spin-Tech Hybrid

When my son Alexander came of age a few years ago it was time for me to strap on the ole shin guards and give flatland another go. Therefore, I decided that I would make an old school rider with new school parts. So I created this hybrid. I took the old D-30 frame and added Xposure 990 brakes, Wellgo Pedals, &  Moto 3D Skull Grips and combined them with my favorite old school parts (Dyno Pretzel Bars, Drain-Pipe. & Skyway Tuff II's ... But most importantly the Dyno Spin-Tech). I restored an old Spin-Tech to a beautiful Bright Green. I also found an old Mongoose Sakae Spin Tech Gyro Unit that has the open slit sides. Therefore, I combined the Dyno Spin-Tech top half, with a Gyro Bottom half, using the Odyssey Gyro bottom cable guide and a bright green "Blank" lower gyro cable. In order to get the cable to work I had to use a small drememel saw and carefully peel away about 1" of the cable housing on each cable leading up to the lower cable guide. Talk about needing a steady hand. The result? The back brakes work great! All the pieces to this build fell together perfectly. I chose flat black as the main color so it woud be easy to touch up. But Powder Plus in Carlisle PA made it more beautiful than I could have imagined.


Last, but not least, are the decals. I commissioned Dynocrazy to give me custom Dyno D-30 decals in lime green with white outlines. The results are awesome!
