seems to me like most of the CL or ebay adds I see are posted by the parents of the bikes owner, or someone who got the bike with out prior knowledge of it...i.e. "Bought this for my son who wanted to try BMX. It is a red bike with reflectors and a helmet" ... more »

Same here...though I have ridden a Neyer Pro at the local park. One of the dudes there let me try it. Also, T1...have never seen one in person, but something about the frames and the idea of the company is cool...same with BSD

damn... i didn't even ride with my seat that high up in the 80's! Probably decent score if you are just testing out BMX. Looks like the frame is full chromo form the read I did on Bicycle Blue Book, but i am not at all familiar with mid school bikes...be ... more »

man, you had a lot of bikes. I started on a Huffy Thunder Road. Got the Mongoose Supergoose in 81. It got stolen 6 months later. I rode friends bikes after that till I got a used Motomag in 82. Rode that through high school, and it finally broke: i bent ... more »

yeah. That's what prevents me from riding at lunch as well: "teacher clothes" as I call it. Wish I could teach in shorts and a t shirt...

I would practice 180's and hops for days there. Doing stuff around that sign... I also wish I could ride at lunch time. My job doesn't allow for that...

definitely rode what you had for sure...no specializing! You rode what would take the beating the best. I rode my Supergoose on trails, at the races and in the culverts, as well as to school, on the street. There was really just one geometry...

I iike the grey one better...could do some cool color things with reds, greens etc with that bike. Could give it a "military" or tank-like look as well? I am more into the trans-coppers than golds...the darker colored metals... if someone gave me that ... more »

at $500 you could probably do well with any company, but I feel like the Hoffman 'Bama would be your best bet. It is more like $400 ish. If you could go $100 more, you would be into solid complete territory... I personally like these companies for completes ... more »

I have never heard of Northrock before... but like many have said, save up for a better bike as you learn on this one...though, I don't know if Iwould be doing any kind of jumps or drops with that bike...might not last. The Mongoose L100 is decent, but ... more »

I have never had a problem with black, tho it is "cliche" I guess. From what I understand in the auto industry, it is also the cheapest and dries the quickest...so maybe that is why it is so common in BMX too? I personally like matte black over gloss, ... more »
