i was digging through some of my photos and found this pic is from 08, found on a bmx blog that is now dead. the build was way ahead of its time; dual 26, bmx cranks, slammed seat, plastic pedals, basically spot on aside from the plastic mag. at the time people were still doing tricks on "real" track bikes with 650 front for barspins.
found orginially HERE
the sylin frame comes in large now. i think these are pretty cool, they look like 26" bmx bikes. probably look rad with a set of 26" wheels and have a cool looking geo. i dig the sloping top tube, integrated headset and seatpost clamp, comes in raw. this frame is killer. any word on tire clearance?
two in a row... i know. just trying to keep things interesting. this is a flashback to the days of tarck bikes, when actual track bikes were the choice for tricks. tons of keo spins and shit like that. kinda cool. kid in the oakland hat at 4:37 got moves man. haha.
this is the friends section from no cassets... i never saw the flick, but this makes for a pretty cool web edit. some hills in there too, which is rarely seen on this blog. definitely worth a watch. check it.
i can still remember when number 1 came out. this shit definitely blazed the trail for current fixed freestyle. the original bootleg sessions was the first video showcasing this style of riding, and im really looking forward to getting my hands on this to complete my collection. on the bummer side of things, this will be the last edition of the infamous bootleg sessions. looks like an epic line up this time around, pick up a copy HERE.
looks like this might be the wrong tubing for the job...
Here is what Charge had to say:

Good morning Trick Trackers
My name's Jim, I work for Charge Bikes (one of 3 full time staff memebers) I'm also the guy that if you emailed in about Corey's frame replied to you. Firstly, I thought I'd post the pictures of Corey's frame which helped us to determine his frame as not under warranty.
Secondly, I'd like to re-iterate that the warranty covers our frames and parts against failure arising from faulty materials or workmanship within the warranty period (in this case 1 year). The warranty does not cover any damage, failure or loss resulting from wear and tear, misuse or abuse, lack of or improper maintenance, unfortunate accident (crashing) or deliberate action and finally improper instalation or incompatible parts. This is standard throughout the bicycle industry.
We absolutely honour every warranty claim that falls into the above requirements. As you can see from the pictures above, Coreys frame has had significant wear on the chainstay from grinding. These repeated impacts have caused the weakening of the tubing and his frame to bend, as it would on any bike. This is the damage which has caused his frame to bend not any defect in material, workmanship or design but rather misuse/abuse or crashing.
We offered Corey a reduced cost replacement which he turned down. We're not required to do this considering his frame is not warrantable but offered it anyway as a gesture of goodwill and we can only appologise about the delay in getting his frame back to him, unfortunately due to the time delay with emails going back and forth there is inevitably going to be some delays with communication between ourselves and our distributor and this is what has caused the delay.
Finally, I'd like to say that we're commited to providing the highest quality products for all cycling disciplines and would never release a product without being 100% confident in it's ability to perform well. We have been supporters of fgfs since it started, supporting riders, competitions and providing specific products for longer than many of you will have been riding fgfs. We all ride bikes at the end of the day and wouldn't put anything into production that we weren't happy to ride ourselves. If anyone has any questions or worries about their own frame or any of our products please do get in touch with me. I am more than happy to answer them and help where I can.
lots of people want to talk shit... but i think its rad. itd be cool if there were a frame built around the 26" wheel concept. here are todays 26" trailblazers. personally i feel like mike schmitt of rva fixed really set this shit on fire. not only does his bike look legit (top pic) (previous post) but his riding speaks for itself. you can definitely build a more solid wheel, fit bigger tires, and have better barspin clearance with a dual 26 setup. it has its downfalls, but i like where its going.
suuuuuuper long slider. theres been a few people just ripping super long sliders lately. fucking awesome. wbase is pretty rad and has been killing it on the fixed scene for a long time now.
check out wbase.com
check 1:51. this dude is smoothe. makes tricks look effortless. its rad when you havent seen someone ride before and they come in so proper. the spots over there in rotterdam look so rad. cant wait to see more from these guys.
