1987 GT Pro Performer Rad 25th Anniversary

Being a freestyler at heart I've loved Rad since it came out in 1986. I rode a chrome Pro Performer back in the 80's and have always wanted to build another one in it's spirit - not an exact copy but one with a similar look and just a few updates. My tribute to the 25th Anniversary of the movie incorporates 14mm dropouts in the rear, 25/9 gearing, a 1 1/8" threadless headset and 990 brakes up front with an Odyssey linear Slic cable. I finished this bike one week away from the celebration in Cochrane and Calgary, Alberta, Canada. See you up there!!

2004 Failure Grade 2 Monster Energy

The more bikes I rebuild the more I realize I am liking new school bikes. This park bike weighs about half of what my old school bikes used to weigh, handles better and just straight outperforms anything we rode back in the day. I'd been wanting to build a bike with a Monster Energy theme for over a year and finally got it applied to this failure. One of my current favorite riders right now.
