I've just bought a cruiser BMX which according to a friend is a mid life crisis. Novel (rather than buying a porsche say), but a mid life crisis none the less.

I blame my son for getting me sucked in to it, though I can probably say goodbye to my collarbones. I don't bounce like I used to.

Anyone else got one? I certainly wont be racing though. Not this year anyway.

Everyone has a friend like that :lol:

I couldn't buy a bike with history like that Perry, people might expect me to live up to it's heritage.

I've gone new school - a Formula Soultion

I would have got a Flight but having the same bike as my son would be just wrong :lol:

I'm in denial that I'm anywhere near mid life yet, getting closer though!

Anyway rather than buy a lighter new frame for my bombproof modern I bought a glorified big bmx come MTB, well its more of an MTB but shorter and heavier frame than current, should be fun. 8) report when it gets here, should be here but paypal/ebay have messed things up :evil:

oh and I also bought a kids 80's BMX out of the classifieds here! :roll: :lol:

Add the retro bikes and daft old wrecks of retro cars and yes not very healthy! :oops:

I had mine last year - I entered Mountain Mayhem - was worth it even though I only did one lap.
