2001 Free Agent Speedway

This is a 2001 Speedway I pic'd up last year for a decent price on ebay...I'm plannin' to set it up for dirt-vert & trail ridin'...She's gonna take a side-seat to my '03 GT KarkassProject but I still hope to hav'er ready to roll by spring/summer '07 but I'm on a tight bike-buildin' budget so it's crossed fingers at this point...I should have some new progress pics to post by late jan early feb so be sure to check back...C-y'all later.

  BTW: Jus'tried to post this Chrome FreeAgent F&F I have under Name the Frame for any clues of Year & Model but I couldn't figure out how to post the pic???!!!
So I guess I'll post here....So du'z anyone here know the year/model???
I noticed it has rear brake cable stay for centerpulls & small tri-plates for gusset support...I was told by the seller that it was a Speedway but it kinda looks like an Expert?!...But I Dunno.
2nd BTW: Anyone know if these frames are 1" or 1 & 1/8" headset???

Re: 2001 Free Agent Speedway

I heard that!...Heck I'm jus' gettin' back into it full steam at 36 & man I feel like I've come home to find that somebody went & shut out all the lights & moved all the funiture around!LOL...I will admit though, I can see why alotta the design changes had to happen. When I was your age we were runnin' our necks & seatposts to high whereas today the pros are keepin' everything as compact as they can so they have more room to move around w/out gettin' tangled up in the bike....Unlike most of the guys I rode'round with in the 80's who were drawn to the 30+lbs Freestyle scoots I was definatly onto the idea of the lighter-weight bike concepts way before most locals...It's simple math. A light bike = bigger & better air. Especially if your under 175lbs or so.

  I will say one thing advise-wise john516...At 15 your still young enough to make the right decision & keep ridin'!!! I screwed up & sold my scoot & stopped ridin' for about 10yrs & it's probably one of the worst decisions I've ever made. My health went down the tubes & I was constantly bummed out for no reason & as soon as knew I was going to be shreddin' again everything felt as if it just snapped back to normal. It was as if God himself were givin' me spiritual props for rightin' a wrong that I'd so foolishly made so long ago!...Dude,at 15 with all the instructional DVDs & such,all you gotta do is work hard everyday & give it some strong willed heart & buy the time your 20 or so you'll have good chances of goin' pro if that's what ya want!...I subscribe to RideBMX Mag & every issue There's somebody new gettin' signed up & paid well to do what they love....SHRED!!!

  Good Luck & Roll On 'Lil Bro!! Peace!

Re: 2001 Free Agent Speedway

when i was fifteen that was around when bikes took a bad turn towards crap, but then some of the newer companies were coming out. i think thats what got me away from it. i missed the old school, i am so glad to see it coming back so strong. i only wish i had the knowledge then, that i posess now. at fifteen noone i knew rode bmx, everyone either skateboarded or had a license. it was only a matter of time until i found an outlet, and this place was it, and in the coming months, the opening of the local track.


when i see a mongoose at walmart, i try and picture the metal being used to make something more useful, like a frying pan, or maybe some clothes hangers...oh well...its out of my hands.

my bikes are tri-moly. that means i have 3 times more chromo than you..haha

Re: 2001 Free Agent Speedway

Didnt some other guy used to have this bike? I love free agents. The way the late 90's frames were built is perfect.


Used to be into Old school race bikes, now im only into Mid school Haros for the most part.

Re: 2001 Free Agent Speedway

Just a heads up -- that looks like a 98.  What's the serial?

Re: 2001 Free Agent Speedway

That chrome frame and fork look like my freeagent 1999 enforcer. The head tube is 1" and alum frame.
