Re: The Kink appreciation thread

I wish I could find the older kink headset. Not the new one that is out now but from a few years ago.  Anyone have one of those?

Some great stuff in this thread; anyone remember the kink commercials in the old Props issues?  One that sticks out in my mind was just Zack Phillips sitting in an empty auditorium saying something like "these are all the people who have enjoyed our previous Kink ads" and that was pretty much it.

HAHA!!  They had so many good commercials back in the day.  They were always my favorite.

Re: The Kink appreciation thread

can we change it to say pre 06' kink? When they were good.

I remember the cielincki and freebirds being incredible bikes at the time.
Being in Virginia, of course I had the Tibbs frame.
They only did 100. They had spray painted graphics and mine came in a trash bag,

Re: The Kink appreciation thread

Rob Tibbs had the best part in both Kink videos.  No doubt.  I completely forgot about the Tibbs frame.  This is awesome.

See, this is why this thread is just the "Kink thread" with no dating.  That is a sick ass rig.

This came up in discussion in the Sunday thread, but had to throw up in here where it belongs.  JC was so far ahead of the curve when it came to rail tricks.  You can read the full interview from this poster here ---> https://www.flickr.com/photos/117027492 … 5/sizes/h/

I've got a blue and grey dust shield still. Killed the headset bearings.

Re: The Kink appreciation thread

Awesome thread.
I've still got a crossbolt stem, chainwheel and pretty sure I still have the licence plate t-shirt somewhere around here too.

I can barely remember this ad that that was in Props but it was one that stood out. I think it was Zac running towards the beer can that was attached to his hat or something, it had the Rocky theme playing too maybe.

Re: The Kink appreciation thread

My favorite Kink commercial was the one where Zach went through an E-Z Pass (toll booth) buck naked with a wig and ski goggles on.  It was somewhere in Road Fools 1, amongst other Props from that era.
