Re: RAD RIDES - The Best BMX Bikes of All Time....

Got my copy today. I like it but being a goose lover I was very disappointed to see one of the most popular bike companies not in the book but only twice. sad a motomag and a DMC. I think the 2 authors are goose haters seeing there were a lot of redlines hutches and jmc's. Only one gt as well. Still worth the purchase!!!


RAD IS STILL NOT AVAILABLE ON AN OFFICIAL DVD!!!! Don't be fooled..

Hoffman Evel KNIEVEL BMX 1998 brand new, never ridden on my local CL for $500 if anyone was looking for one, i know its in the book...


If you don't like it, don't buy it...

Old School to New School, ridden it all, but I guess my forte is that Mid School stuff...

I am looking for an orignal Ultra Box build, PM and let me know...

I was comparing Rad Rides to this: http://www.disposablethebook.com/

Comparing the two, Rad Rides falls quite short of Disposable, but as I said, it is what it is and it is still cool to have a BMX book kicking around the house to flip through.
