7/18/2012 6:53:58 PM Do you have ANY hills? If no or very few, then no, I wouldn't suggest it. Also, the learning curve is huge with these things. Takes awhile to get it down. But, if yes to the first and once you get past the learning curve, they're great. I own one myself and they're a blast to bomb hills with. Like I said though, if you don't have any hills, these things are pretty useless and you may as well stick with a longboard and learn about sliding. ;)
5/31/2012 11:50:45 AM Triple underflip 1260.....? I only saw a triple cork 180... Or did I miss something?
5/28/2012 10:59:12 PM Just got me a pair of these a few days ago. Time to start kicking myself back into shape... Been putting off the running for WAY too long.
4/14/2012 11:41:35 AM Pretty awesome to see someone trying to start up a business like this. Especially since waterproof shoes are something I don't see to often, haha. Mad props, even though these shoes aren't quite my style. I see Hoon post quite a bit on fb if you want to reach him there btw. He actually works for Timberland shoes too, so it could be possible that he could hook them up if they don't see them as being a competitor, lol.
4/3/2012 11:55:56 PM Wouldn't say to completely avoid them, because they are fantastic, but be a BIT more cautious on fresh pow days. If you know what they look like, they're easy to spot and avoid, but just try not to hug trees too closely and you'll be okay.
4/3/2012 1:00:46 AM Oh wow, this topic was raised from the grave, haha. I posted this so long ago... Anywho, this is very useful information... I literally got trapped in a tree well (over my head deep. JUST downpoured snow the few days before that) and almost died the season I posted this. It was horrifying, but I got out of it, so I definitely recommend reading through it. Was actually the trip to Sugarbowl for Bruizzapalooza.
3/17/2012 10:25:37 PM This one was actually just featured on Gizmodo today. Nice to see Giz showing some Signal love as well.
3/16/2012 5:30:08 PM Yeah. The most recent couple are the firsts of the new season. 
3/15/2012 9:16:32 PM Yeah, just sucks they stopped updating that thread. :/ They were on the spot pretty much up until June of last year. Would like to make one that stays updated a bit better. Sidenote, how do I search this site anymore? Try to use the search at the top for Site and not Shopping and it NEVER comes up with anything, and I can't find any search fields anywhere in the forums... Been curious for awhile now.
3/14/2012 11:58:58 PM Not sure if someone's started a thread about this already, and if they did, I apologize, but I honestly think what this company's been doing every month has just been awesome. Been following these videos for quite some time, but just figured if someone hasn't seen any, they're some pretty awesome gems. Basically, what Signal does is get these random, off-the-wall ideas and tries to incorporate them into a snowboard, and build it from the ground up. They just released a couple over the past few days of the past couple months that are a paintball gun, and another a survival multitool. Past weeks have been a board with inner tubes to adjust flex, a board with an iPad built into it, a snowboard/surfboard combo (that worked very well in both environments), and even down to a board made of candy. I'll post the most recent few I mentioned, because they've done quite a bit. Mountain Tool: Air If You Dare: Fish Out of Water: Here's their Youtube channel for previous months: http://www.youtube.com/user/SignalSnowboard/videos?query=every+third+thursday Hope you guys enjoy as much as I did. Random fun with new projects this company does is a big reason I really love them. Finding random ways to just blend in new things and try to seriously innovate.
3/3/2012 8:03:39 PM Well.... guess I'm gonna have to stick with the bike I have right now regardless of what I wanted to do before...  Seriously sucks... I had bought it refurbished years back, and I can't really tell if this was due to a bad repair job or what, but it just got knocked over from standing up onto my literally almost shag carpet and just broke right off. Of all the times I've dropped it, its softest fall is the one that kills it...
3/2/2012 9:49:56 PM Still pretty interesting jumping on CL and looking at the prices there though... Can get, say, a Raleigh Record 10-speed for like $160-180, yet you find that same bike but a fixie for $300+. Honestly haven't seen a fixie drop below the $250 mark, but have found plenty of 10-speeds below $100. Albeit, they're not in the best condition, but still. Doing a conversion, you're replacing the cassette and main crank anyways, which means you're also removing the derailleurs, and can sometimes even get away with removing the brakes. All you really have to clean up is the frame and wheels. Pay more for much less... I really don't get it. But hey, guess that's what fads do to people.
3/2/2012 9:08:40 PM Anyone ever do a road to fixie conversion? Thinking about starting to start trying it out by finding old roadies on CL and converting them. Guess they're the "in" thing now, so they're selling for ridiculous prices... Would be nice to jump into the market, haha. Also would help me get some practice working with them when I decide to start my own build.
3/2/2012 8:52:27 PM That, and the Skyrocket's got a pretty good community of devs over at XDA if you're into hacking it up a bit.
3/2/2012 8:17:29 PM I've had the Skyrocket for about 3 months now and seriously love this thing. Almost everything about it is simply flawless. (I only say almost because of the screen line issue. Look it up.  You CAN get one without it if you look when you're getting it though, so just make sure you check first.) It's amazingly fast, runs Android, has LTE for when we get coverage, awesome battery life if you manage it right (I can get 2 days+ sometimes), and it's JUST the right size. May seem a bit big at first, but the screen is great, and after your hands get used to holding it, it's a really comfortable fit. Don't really find myself getting cramped when typing or stretching when using one hand to type. Great phone. Also looks awesome in white!
