Thruster vp.


I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile

+1 on CW Phaze 1. It is surprisingly light. Also had an '83 Powerlite that was like a feather.

A ZX pro would probably be lighter by a few grams I'd think, which is minimal. No extra 2-3" piece of tube welded in there. Wasn't a Phase-1 just a ZX Pro with the altered downtube?

I'm also pretty sure my 82 Hutch Pro Racer was lighter than my 84 CW Phase 1 built up with the same parts. Not by much but still a bit lighter.

Re: What are the lightest pre 84 frames

My '82 chromoly quadangle is really light. I am breaking it down soon. I will weigh it when I do. Also, I remember my Laserlite being very light.


I have a bunch of good old school stuff for sale in the beta section, check it out!

Re: What are the lightest pre 84 frames

Not sure on the weight but I know Vitus frames are seriously light. Bonded aluminium frame has to be up there.
