This new MotorMavens deck and a bunch of other designs by my hand are once again available online!I can make decks in different widths, from 7.25 all the way up to 8.25, including old-skool, pool, and longboard shapes – so if you see any decks in the store that tickle your fancy, but need a different size, just let me know! I will get re-sized and up in the store for you STAT.
I finally got my bike up off the floor using a proper storage solution with a Stolmen Bike Rack (via Ikea Hacker). I bought all the pieces to do this months ago, but just now got down to brass tacks with it. I couldn’t find any 20x20mm aluminum stock anywhere, so I ended up cutting up an ol’ car-mount for a video camera I had lying around that utilized the same square tubing. I wanted the bike to sit completely parallel to the wall, but I found that if I mounted everything just right (slightly off-center, with the bike at a slight angle) I could retain full swing of both doors. I’m sure if I ever build a second bike up (trick bike?) it will end up on here as well… but for now it makes a good place to keep my bag/lock/helmet.I’m definitely excited how this turned out… and best of all – no more scuff marks on the walls from the tyres and handlebars!
Some crackhead smashed the window of my truck and ganked my iPod, GPS, and radar detector – none of which was out in plain sight. Instead of using a brick, rock, or old spark plug like a normal cracky – he used a screwdriver to pry the window past it’s threshold for shatter and bent the door frame in the process which now needs bodywork and paint to be fixed.There is nothing worse than that feeling of violation when someone does something like this… and I feel confident that there is a special place in hell for people that break the golden rule of all golden rules. Never touch a man’s automobile. ESPECIALLY a zombie-killing truck. That just has bad karma written all over it.
