I had a chrome Hutch 'Pro Star' with chrome DK stem, chrome Araya rims, black hubs (I think Suntour or Sugino, maybe... can't remember), chrome Hutch bars, chrome Hutch seat post, chrome Hutch 'bear trap' pedals, chrome Dia-Comp MX brakes and Profile cranks. I don't remember my seat but it was one of those plastic deals that were super popular at the time. I think I used some motocross grips instead of standard BMX grips... Oury, maybe. Don't remember. I was all about doing anything Mike Dominguez, Mike Buff or R.L. Osborn did. Mike Dominguez was my hero when I was 16 and every trick he did I forced myself to learn. Kinda silly when I think about it now, but BMX was my world in the early 80's!!!

 

Nice Trick Star! Old school front brake too! I remember when that shit was first being spied in magazines. A few of my friends and I took our stem bolts and had a hole drilled in them so we could run our front brake cable through the stem, fork and out the fork shaft to the brake calipers. That was some ill-shit when it first came out. Took a long while before any companies came up with a stock way of converting the front brake. Are those Profile cranks, too? nice!! Those threads on the bottom bracket strip so easily though.

 

Ahhh... good times. The last time I rode a BMX bike was when I was 17... 24 years ago.

i get an intense pain in the "valley" of my palm sometimes when riding in the tops on the road bike. it seems to come randomly as i cant recreate the pain or think of anything in particular causing it (not bumps in the road or anything).

 

it feels similar to when you have a chip off your kneecap and you kneel on it and everythings lined up right and the chip is between the floor and the nerve and i guess it pinches it? but thats what it feels like. and it hurts like fucking crazy.

 

what do?

---REDLINE FLITE CRANKS

 

---WHEN A COMPANY PRODUCED THE "FRONT BRAKE DEAL" SO YOUR BARS COULD SPIN,

THEY ORIGINALLY CALLED IT THE "POTTS-MODIFICATION"

THEN SOMEONE INVENTED ONE FOR THE REAR (in my picture as well) "ACS ROTOR"

THEN ODDESSEY CAME OUT WITH A REAR BRAKE MOD.

 

TOO BAD YOU STIL DON'T HAVE A 20",

WE COULD BUILD A HALF-PIPE SOMEWHERE AND RIP!!!

(Hopefully next to Banfield freeway for easy Hospital access!)

LOL!! Yeah, "that guy" definitely egst called out when it's mid-August. nice new rig!

 

Acer... I have no idea what your pain could be coming from. I think it's something you should definitely have checked out though. If you have insurance... seek out a sports medicine doctor that takes your insurance. I've found that even if they can't treat the problem they know more about the pains associated with cycling and can easily diagnose what and where the pain is about... making seeing a regular doctor that much easier.
