Daewon Song #2.

Two things have come to my attention in the new issue of Transworld:

1. There is 24 shot sequence of Daewon kickfliping out of a blunt on a quarterpipe and then doing a fakie nose manual from the tranny to the curb for Knox Hardware. It looks like a bunch of video grabs, even though it was shot with a much nicer camera than anything in 1993. The quarterpipe requires hopping up a curb before you get to it, which is how that combo is possible, if you are Daewon.

2. OJ is making 42mm Dingle Berries wheels that come in a fake cereal box.

So cheer up you old curmudgeons who miss the 1990s. Things haven't changed a bit.

I was pretty shocked to see that 42 mm ad....I ride 50 mm's which seem small compared to what most people ride now...but maybe we're doomed to repeat the past?

This was one of those things I didn't really notice and then realized what it was. Somebody at NHS must have nostalgia for the BPSW days and decided to do something about it.

I think most of the more tech guys ride about 50mm. As long as the wheels are new, that isn't too bad. I stick to 56mm or so. I also need to set up some new wheels and bearings.
