I have skateboarded for 22 years now , but I still love a nice BMX bike . In fact I wish more older dudes would ride BMX and not some fixed-gear faggy-ass track bike shit . I'm sure a lot of you saw Bojangles " Screamer " which is fucking rad....but I have a Profile frame , bars , DK neck , GT Power Series cranks and Peregrine HP48's that I'm in the stages of putting back together . Not nearly as cool as the Screamer but the end result should be just as fun . BMX bikes to me were from 1978-1989 , sorry that's just my opinion . None of this fat-welded tube things that exist now .

http://www.vintagebmx.com is better than museum....jk They are both great sites. Lots of tech info and old school flapping of the jaws.

Tree ride on Marshall in Winston?

NC State Tucker Beach. We used to have that spot clayed out, but time and school maintenance have not been good to her since I stopped going to school there.

 

That's Capitol City during the track rebuild looking at what is now the fourth straight. We just rebuilt the track again. I'll get flicks eventually and send them to you.

Word. The tree ride here is still golden. And that track looks like the last time I raced Woodbridge. Never been to cap city.

i have a similar set up. 24" wheels, susp fork.

 

but i want to get rid of it and get a real bmx setup. not sure if i wanna go 24" cruiser(new dk cruiser or subrosa cruiser) or just get a straight up 20"

 

never rode a little bike before.

 

bmx heads, are 24" cruisers even worth it? ive heard the old dk general sherman had problems with barspins b/c the wheel would hit feet on pedals.

 

im not super tall, but i just think the cruiser would be more comfortable

Cruisers are comfortable to ride but for tricks, I think a 20" would be better

The geometry on cruisers are all weird, plus a lot of places dont make good parts for cruisers since they are going out of style

The problem for me is that I'm a pretty big guy and 20" bikes ride/feel/look ridiculous when I'm riding them. 24" bikes don't seem to work well, either...if you can do it when you're my size (6' 225 lb) then great, but I need a 26" to feel comfortable doing jumps, street tricks and whatnot.

 

The Haro is a nice out the door package for the money. I could definitely build a nicer bike but it would cost at least $500 more than what the Haro goes for.
