It's reall odd!

My brother is big into DH and BMX, he has a Specialized Big Hit full susser and a Easton BMX.

Just as MTB's are becoming more functional and dare I say it a bit ugly, which is why this site is here to celebrate the fillet brazed purple anodised sleek light '90's!

The BMX world is now making the most beautifully crafted frames,
Internal BB and H set's
Tiny but strong hubs
Weight is an issue!
Subtle colors and graphics and some very trick components, bi directional freeewheel anyone!

Also my bro and his mate Dom have been ramp riding on brakeless bmx's which is a lesson in bike control if you ask me!

The Kid's are alright 8) Check 'em out!

Retro all the way - Old School bikes have evolved into heavy POS's functionality is good but style, grace, all gone.

My bro managed to pop his thumb bone out the side of his thumb after a tyre tap attempt went wrong! Maybe brakeless wan't such a bright idea! :roll:
