New thread Lay-back pivotal seat post 1/28/2019 1:24 PM

I'm looking for a lay-back pivotal seat post that has more height to it than that dinky little Subrosa one. Or even a lay-back seatpost for railed seats with the integrated clamp. Any ideas if something like that exists? All I can find is the Subrosa ... more »

So, I'm looking for riders of the older set (I'm in my 40s) riding bigger bikes (22/24/26/29) in the Northern Orange County area. I'm in La Habra, which is as far north in OC as you can get (I live about 100 yards from the OC/LAC border). Really, big

New thread An old guy's ride! 5/20/2013 11:41 AM

I'm 44 years old; I was a racer in the 80s and got back into BMX about a year-and-a-half ago. I wanted to get back on the track and bought a race 24" bike, but found that my work and life schedule was not compatible with my local track times. So I sold

New thread Premium Serial Number 5/7/2013 1:23 PM

Hey... I picked up a Premium Products frame off craigslist the other day and I'd like to find out what year it was made (and hopefully the model). Does anyone know how to decipher Premium serial numbers?

New thread Oh... wow! 4/10/2013 9:23 PM

In the 80s, I was a BMX racer. About 2 years ago I decided to get back into BMX and started rebuilding my 80s race bike. It was way too small for me, so I bought a 24" bike which I've been riding on and off since. I never looked into a "new" 20", thinking

New thread What do you use your "cruiser" for? 3/25/2012 9:21 PM

I'm an older guy, an ex-racer who got back into BMX last year. I don't ride 20" any more, though... even the long TT models feel sketchy to me. I have a GHP Twenty4 which I ride on the track from time to time, but pretty much I ride street/park on my ... more »

New thread New BMX Cruiser Site 2/23/2012 12:36 PM

While I love all BMX stuff from vintage to new-school, these days I pretty much ride nothing but new-school 24" bikes. There are a lot of people like me out there who used to race or freestyle back in the day then got into the whole "vintage BMX" thing ... more »

New thread Teaching an old dog new tricks! 2/21/2012 8:24 AM

I'm one of those guys who raced BMX back in the 80s and recently got back into the sport. I did the whole "restore my vintage bike" thing and bought a new bike to get back into racing, but scheduling track time is a pain. So I bought this bike to ride

New thread I need a hat. 2/20/2012 7:23 PM

I need a new hat and I'd love to get a BMX-related hat but I look effing retarded in flat-brimmed hats. Anyone know where I can get a BMX hat that's got a curved brim?
