best kept secrets...

okay, well, maybe not. but anyways, i'm sorry to all my readers out there in the world wide web for not having been updating ironxhanger as much. i've been very busy being preoccupied, day in and out with my obligations and other shit that has been going on lately. i've also been too damn tired to update, even when i want to most times. further more, there's not much news to update in here, that you can't already find else where on the internet.

anyway, below are two free main resource sites (if you don't already know, that is) where you can watch skateboarding videos online and also check out and read some skateboarding web 'zines too, if you have time to kill that is. ha!

never forget.

timothy "tim" michael brauch (april 26, 1974 – may 9, 1999) was an american professional skateboarder who grew up in san jose, california. brauch came up in skateboarding during the late 1980s and early 1990s, a period of skateboarding when professionalism meant small paychecks and little fame outside skateboarding, but lots of travel, experiences, and good times with friends and like-minded skaters.

poor mans' skate tool pack.

i'm sick of all these big ass bulky skate tools for trucks that i see in the local and/or online skate shops. also, the pocket sized ones (i shan't name any companies), are ridiculously priced. further more, some specific hardware tools from specific truck companies are made just for the trucks they manufacture and most don't fit other brands of trucks.

below are some loose (not built in nor all in one) hardware tools that i have been using for years for the trucks that i rock. i enclose all of 'em in a recycled polyvinyl zip lock bag and it fits well at the back pocket of my pants.

all of the tools above, cost less than 20 bucks and are mostly available at daiso, for those who live in singapura. where can you find a tool that has a knife (cheap replica swiss army knives and alternative miniature knives are easily available too!) to cut your grip tape and one with an led torch? if there is one out there, i'd like to have one for myself. compact or pocket sized that is.
