La Pulga: 18" KGB Frame
« on: February 18, 2008, 12:21:19 PM »
Viki was testing a new KGB frame for 10 days. It´s called "La Pulga" (in english: flea) and has a 18" toptube. He wrote that he already learned a load of new rear wheel tricks because the short toptube makes them much easier for him.

You can watch 4 minute promo video on Viki´s blog:

surely he copied your riding.
surely you had video of the tricks as proof.
sure your cam is down for some reason, that's why u cant post the vid.
sure you are jokin about this post.
sure ppl cant take humour on the forum nowadays.
sure certain ppl are gonna defend you and crap on me.
but pls give viki some credit for his effort yeah?  :beer: :ph34r:
love no brakes. =D

Very exciting to see Viki doing some rear wheel tricks, and good ones too.  Can't wait too see what else he comes up with.  If he has only been trying that stuff for 10 days that's his true talent shining through, just wait till he really starts to innovate.

I have no grounds on which to walk a path of belief in this claim.
The following is the truth.  The preceeding is a lie.

Viki actually said in an interview on spanish TV that Brian is one of his idols! Right next to mother Teresa and Hendrix

Think about it-

Viki wears a visor and you wear a visor.

Viki's been inspired by your backwheel.

Viki lusts at the fact that you can grow and maintain a magnificient goatee but he cannot.

You have pulled the elusive "GRIPHIKER"!!!!!1

All the signs point to YES
