Also be sure to watch a movie called “Joe Kidd on a Stingray” if you havent already.
BMX seemed after we were modifying our Sting Rays and Typhoons for dirt and home made jumps and before my pals and I were cobbling up stuff for riding trails.
Regardless of wheel size and gears, go ride everyone!
When I was a kid everyone wanted a mini bike or a motorcycle, something with a motor and horsepower. Ya we rode our bikes in the dirt when we were little kids because that's all we had and we fixed them up but only till we could get something gas powered. My kids were in the BMX and trick bike age. I just don't remember anyone riding BMX or even mountain bikes in the 60's and 70's. Now it is popular for grown men to go out on what looks like kids bicycles to me and pedal their but off trying to bump on a course. I am not dissin' it, go have fun and getting exercise is great. It just seems odd to me.
I get that. BMX became a thing when I was a teen with a cheap 100 cc dirt bike, and I've been into MTB as much as trail building since the beginning.
I don't know about the rest. The bikes we ride aren't really kids bikes and I understand how action sports aren't for everyone.
I'm more of a mid-schooler. Rode a Haro Series One race bike that I built up as more of a dirt jumper and pegless street bike back in 1987 when Freestylin' and BMX Action turned away from flatland and racing, to ride your bike on everything everywhere; that was an exciting time.
15 years off and got a Haro cruiser in the early aughts. After that, I rode a 20"DK complete, built up a Fit Series One for street and park, and finally settled on a Mutiny with S&M forks and bars. Gave that to my son after my skatepark days were past me. Peddled around tonight on my old DK 4130 race cruiser with mostly Animal parts, full size 8" handlebars (game changer; try it), and no brakes.
I also have in the stable a 1983 Schwinn Predator Team 24 race cruiser that I got from a bike boneyard for $15 that I restored; I coveted this bike as a kid, and found one, with the original decals intact, covered in overgrown grass and dirt (minus back wheel and seized cranks). Club Home Boy sticker on the head tube, of course.
Rad is on Amazon now for rental.
That will be on the agenda today - Thanks!
