  1. As title says really, before I continue I would like to add this frame is cracked and bent before I got excited with a drill haha. I have tried to drill where I think is not a stressful place for the frame. I drilled an initial hole of 3mm then changed it to 6mm. Following this I angled the drill the angle that the cable would be gong into and out of the frame based around looking at my own bike. You can see with the cable going through the seat clamp area was not idea however with other frames like Marino’s the seat clamp is on top so if you cut your post down it would still clear fine (however in this instance it worked out well as I was able to see and show what was happening). Has any body got any advice on what else could be done? I thought of heat treating the area to make it stronger. Has anyone got any ideas or has this been done before? Cheers for responses in advance
  2. How much does it weigh now then?
  3. Where do you buy these from?
  4. You can tell the difference, main difference was weight in the front end due to the fork weight. Overall feel I preferred steel
  5. It isn’t an arcade lol it’s a marino, had this back in 2015, inspired must have taken inspiration from it
  6. Been riding these two recently! Just comparing the two
  7. Jeeez we filmed some of these agessss ago , good riding bro!
  8. I'd say it might be abit too small , and a four play or arcade would be better suited, as I'm 6ft and have ridden the old Skye's and they felt small to me
  9. Let's see a whole edit then
  10. It will take awhile to get use too but going back to 24 after tomorrow haha
  11. I basically have a marino with arcade geo and I usually ride 24" but the rear hub cracked so sent it back to hope waiting for a new one before u can build my new wheels, will be borrowing some of a mate for a week or two but for tomorrow I put these on So that's that answered, a 26" arcade (#marino version haha)
  12. Real question is what did he have to do/get her first before she bought you all the bits?
  13. Only 26" street I rode had 22-17 , john Shrewsburys marino, works well for him
  14. Only just seen this, don't know why no one else has commented, if was really good to watch, nice streety riding on a mod, credit to you for that! Liked the editing too. Think you would suit a 24" abit better mind.
