Lukas Sladek decided not to produce his Fast Convertible Frames but choosed to share his work, so you can either work on them or go to your local CNC machining company to get them done for you.
We have been working on this for a long time and finally have reached a usable prototype and need to open up testing to a wider range of skaters…
Provoke HB-3: Triple H-Block Frame, specially designed wheels, new grinding possibilities with 3 grinding locations (soon).
Happy April Fools day.
After going through all of the stainless steel spacer sliders and rigid spacers one by one for quality and removing the bad ones we thought we were all set.
However, Hakeem then found a catastrophic error. Almost all of the axles are slightly too thick and although they will fit through the spacers they will not fit through the bearings. This could be from either the electroplating being too thick or a problem with the steel axle itself.
Either way, it is a huge set-back that stops us from delivering the frames at this time. We are extremely upset about it.
I can’t express in words to you how devastated we are by this. We have obviously contacted the manufacturer and this is the returned message:
Lucas Sladek updated his original design of the fast convertible frames. Manufacturing cost has been reduced. Promo video coming soon.
