2012 Skyway T/A XL 24
New Skyway TA 24
Surfing the web looking at where was bmx today after watching on TV the races of the London Olympics I saw the F/F set sold by Planet BMX. All my bmx memories came back to me and without thinking twice I ordered a set. Today I am back into it and bmx obsessed as I was 25 years ago.
It took me three months to get the different parts. I wanted it as sober, clean but still as "classy" as possible so I went for the full monty: chrome !
This is a bike I would have dreamed to have when I was a kid but couldn't afford it at the time, only drooling at some friend's bikes and photos in magazines.
The sensations are amazing even if it is slightly big for me. Will need some time / practice to get properly used to riding bmx again but I am already enjoying it as a little boy. My wife can still not believe that she married a 40 years old teenager :-).
Still few changes to come like polishing the chain ring, maybe replacing the stem by a more old school flavoured one (tyres too i.e: Comp III ?), get a pad set and post better pics .
Such a feeling to a have a childhood dream becoming true. I wish it to everybody !
