    I caught a radio story this morning about chronic traumatic encephalopathy, CTE, and Dave Mirra. Doctors don't think helmets do anything for this, helmets protect the skull, but don't CTE can develop without skull injuries. Just lots of concussions.
    It worries me a bit. I've had 7 concussions between BMX/MTB/fights/war. I'm sure he had far more than that, but I wonder how many before CTE starts forming...

    Here's my custom build. It was a Midschool Haro Group 1 ci, 1995 Model. It has been lying around in the shed since I was a kid. I decided to go with a racing theme as it was originally a mid level light weight racing bike and I decided to do a PK Ripper orange and white colour theme because they just pop so much! It was my first build and a lot of the parts I'm not 100% happy with mostly due to the oranges not matching perfect and I wish I found a better sticker kit. By far the best part on this bike are the Fusion 3 piece cranks, I scored them from a small local bikeshop. The guy had them tucked away and probably thought he would never sell them. They still had the original mid 90's price tag on them, $330 AUD!! I knocked him down to half price. I was going to just hang it on my wall and let it collect dust, but fuck it! I ride it to the shops every now and then...HARO%202_zps16zrf4ta.jpg HARO%201_zpsvbeqj7yr.jpg

    If you're free on Saturday, head down to the Pumphouse at Darling Harbour at 11am for the Christmas City ride.

    Yo, that's so similar ;) Nice one, the fluro green is nice indeed. I would like to get the original fluro yellow group 1zi* they brought out in 94. I think I will get another set of wheels for my build. Orange anodized high quality racing rims (spoked) Will change the appearance so much.

    Mine was in a weird transition period - 1inch thread-less and V-brakes (no canti tab).

    Like I said get down to the Pumphouse on Saturday for the city ride.
