Is BMX going back to it's heritage and having coasters, four pegs, four piece bars, wacky colored schemes. colored tires and maybe more originality?

Can anyone else see the relation? There are others, but I will let you guys find em. haha
Are trends good or bad in your opinion? What kind of bike look isn't a trend? Does the economy effect how bikes look?

Do you like the latest trends?

honestly people are just following trends but if they like it, good for them
its funny when i get called a swagfag until they find out ive been riding 4pc and a coaster for more than 2 years
colored tires look cool when new, and bad when dirty
im a fan of marbled ones, but only if its mostly black
i hate laffy taffy tires

colored tires only work on certain schemes. white tires just suck if ya ask me. get dirty too fast. and trends are like a revolving a door if that answers your question. bars for example- 80's-9-10 rise, 90's-7-8 rise, 2000's-8-9 rise, 2010's 9-10 rise. unless its something innovative that catches on, the trends will be like a revolving door looking back

BMX ALWAYS goes in cycles. Small bars were popular about 10 years ago, and I would bet they make a comeback at some point. Same with front brakes, and brakes in general. Tuck no handers were more commonly done by vert riders until maybe 5-6 years ago, then everyone started doing them. Suicide no handers disappeared for several years too, when seats were more commonly slammed.

Don't forget about everybody riding Chicago bars. (bars are super far forward 80's style) Photo

18 inch top tubes is why so many people ran their bars so far forward. ^

I still think it is funny that people get longer TT frames to not be too cramped, and then put their bars forward too, which leans them out. It feels odd to me. Even with the fork within reason for this guy.




But yea, older styles come back, and fade out. Give it time and everyone will have front and rear brakes again for a while.
