on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

Wow what a transformation. That is one sweet looking mama now...even with the taco'd front rim.
Bell makes a good one-size fits all road helmet that's pretty inexpensive, if you intend to keep on doing endos on the hard stuff. Sounds liek you got lucky. Most of my mtb endos end up with some kind of injury. As for the road, I try hard not to even go there.
PS. Nice sprint work by the radar cart, although, I did wonder, "is that guy wearing a helmet?"
lol i wasnt even trynna endo, i was just peddling hard. then put some pressure on the front wheel and spladow rolling thunder
im thinking of grabbing my 80's rainbow spraypainted styrofoam helmet and just setting the trend bar a bit high, jk. for a moment i had a giro on my head about to walk out the door.. then i said (naw, not yet). next time i attempt to break the 30-32mph zone ill borrow my friends helmet and catch the drops and get some aero on the bad boy
edit: found an old mavic rim at another lbs today, double rim 32 spokes i believe (speed counted) problem is the axle isnt fitting on the fork. UGH ANOTHER AXLE PROBLEM LOL. time to go makeshift another smaller axle or get different bearing races...
