I used to race BMX WAAAAAAY back in '82.

I had a Schwinn Predator and the whole checkered pad set and 3 piece crank, etc.

I remember how cool it was back in the day when all these cool bikes were coming out like HARO, GT, Mongoose, Diamond Back, Redline, Hutch, Kuwahara, etc.

Then I went and saw E.T. and the kids were riding all these cool bikes.

This was before freestyle was really mainstream, so the most "tricks" I ever did were bunny hops, endoes, and tabletops, et al. Hell, there wasn't such a thing as axle pegs yet!

Thanks for the flashback to my childhood.

Man, I need to go and dig out all my old issues of BMX Action!! LOL!
I was a couple of years behind you, but also had a Predator, after my DB viper was stolen. I started racing the predator but didn't start winning races until I got my 21lb. DB Formula One. I stopped racing in about 88' but I still have the F1 hangin' out in the garage. I used to ride it to class in college. It's in great condition, I never thrashed it. BMX Action....LOL BMX Plus survived. Memory lane!!!!

No brakes? Didn't see a coaster brake.

I also have GIANT that I ride (and pull my son around on), but it's never been in the miata.

You brake with you leg muscles. Or by letting gravity do it's thing (aka crashing).

Ride --> Work --> Live --> Ride


Riding everyday helps me get healthy, get the ladies (the spandex outfit is crucial), and save the Earth from evil doers. Also beer tastes really, really good after a couple of hours in the saddle and a long day of work.


Another project.


I miss this bike dearly.

I mostly ride the singlespeed, it sports a paul rear hub/king front and eno drivetrain.



My SS crew at Tsali


My other SS is Ti, Kona King Kahuna w/eno eccentric rear hub, sweetness.


Before the kid, my wife and I flew all over the US and rocked the 5" travel Ventana tandem. After the kid, not so much. This is the only pic I have at work. Santa Anna River Trail in Angelus Oaks, CA.


And the neglected red headed stepchild. Ventana El Saltamontes with all the goods.

Sweet! I have a Schwinn Predator that has been repainted about a billion times and is now currently flat black!!! Was originally Red with all the sweet/tacky Schwinn Decals of the 80's.

Man, i swear everyone's getting back into their bikes. I spent the weekend getting my MTB back into shape too. Had to flip the thumb shifters into finger shifters since my thumb still isn't healed but it gets the job done. Of course, then I snapped the chain. Go me!

I want another BMX. Back in the day I used to have one my folks picked up 2ndhand. big, heavy steel frame they said used to belong to a friend of theirs that raced semi-pro. Dunno if it was true or not (it was a heeeavy bike). but damned if i don't miss that bike now and want something like it again.

Fixed gear SUCKS. I don't know how you people do it. I guess it's a progression stage where eventually you realize how sucky it is then move to better things like that dope-ass Biachi and old-school Peugot, kinda like ricers,haha.

Oh, here's my bike..

Fixed gear is what all the scenesters and bike snobs ride around here.

I want to make a rat road bicycle.

I used to flatland on my BMX bike when I was younger, I actually got pretty good at it then just lost interest. I forget what bike I even had...I do remember it was nice though, brake gyro in the front, pegs, very easy to flick around.

Man, kinda makes me want to get back in a parking lot balancing on a tiny ass bike...haha

Mmmmm, leather

I just picked me up a Specialized Hardrock for $80 (tanks again Noah ) Finally an excuse to go riding again!



Mine's black, but the same frame as that one. Just needs a new seat. Nothing $30 and a trip to Sports Authority can't fix

Just started riding a road bike with my father-in-law. He's been riding for years now and sucked me into it. It's a blast and way less destructive on my body than the last 10 years of skateboarding was. My ride is a 2004 Cannondale R600 with a couple upgrades.

You sold a Cortina for an IRO? They're only like $600 new complete. I can't even imagine getting rid of a Cortina for a famous NJS approved bike unless it was a total rust bucket.

..someone mentioned flatland.. some of the parts are out of style/never were in style..



the nearest paved parkinglot's at least a 10 minute drive from where i live though, and this is a bit of a hassle.. so i don't ride as much as i'd like to

You can sort of see it hanging there - its a Fisher Kai Tai. I don't ride all that much so haven't bothered to get anything new in a very very long time. This is fine for time with the kid.
