Tony Hawk HuckJam signature series bikes!?

Anyone have one of these bikes!? I came across them somehow on the internet and thought they looked
pretty cool. I want a rider as I don't have one and thought about getting one.

This is one I like...

Re: Tony Hawk HuckJam signature series bikes!?

I think they're ok but some here might disagree.  There was a big thread on these and a lot of members think Tony Hawk is in it just for the money and he should stick to skateboarding.  In my personal opinion they look good and have half decent components for the money and life is short, take what you can get and have fun.  So what if Tony's endorsing his own line of bikes, I think it's cool!  You should buy one and let us know what they're like.  How much for this one?

Re: Tony Hawk HuckJam signature series bikes!?

Thanks for those links genesbmx

I see a lot of people had bad thing's to say. Oh well, I just thought I would get one because I wanted a semi-nice
rider. It seems to be built pretty nice and I like this color scheme.

It sure beats a Wal-Goose, and may I add they don't ride that bad but I know they are made cheap so.

"Gene`s BMX News Review -- 09/21/2007
When you think of Tony Hawk, you think of skateboarding.
But here is a small twist with that. - Dynacraft BSC, Inc.,
a U.S. bicycle distributor, has entered into an exclusive
licensing partnership with the skateboarding legend and
action sports pioneer, Tony Hawk. So, What about this?
A New! Tony Hawk Signature Series BMX Bikes Line.

Dynacraft, in conjunction with Mr.Hawk and his team,
is developing two different bike lines under the "Tony
Hawk Huck Jam" brand.

Tony Hawk HuckJam Series and Tony Hawk HuckJam Signature
Series bikes will be available in retail stores beginning Spring 2008.

Tony Hawk HuckJam Series bikes are being created for
Dynacraft's mass merchandise customers. Offering an
outstanding value to the consumer, they will be designed
primarily for kids and entry-level recreational riders.

Tony Hawk Signature Series bikes are being created
for serious bike enthusiasts and will be distributed through
sporting goods chains and other specialty retail customers.

Developed by Dynacraft's new Specialty Retail Group, this
line will include super premium carbon fiber bikes and highest
end 20" rotor bikes, some to be distributed online and through
select customers. All Tony Hawk HuckJam bikes will feature
higher end components, innovative paint finishes, new types of
frames, and cutting edge decal and graphics packages.

Dynacraft BSC, Inc. is a U.S. bicycle distributor.
With eleven different brands and over 150 models, the company
distributes bikes each year to customers that include Academy
Sports, Amazon.com, Costco.com, KB Toys, Target Stores,
Toys R Us and Wal-Mart, that is just to name a few."

if this is a reveiw sorry for what I am going to say, but this looks more like a marketing strategy than ANYTHING to do with actually building and selling nice bikes to real end users, the wording is very poorly chosen to elicit trust in them building quality bikes more like them trying to mass market t.h. and his name and directing un suspecting buyers to the mass market arenas where I am sure they make a higher profit.

Re: Tony Hawk HuckJam signature series bikes!?

It is strange to see the skateboarding
name Tony Hawk on a BMX bike .....

If you like it - then buy it!
If you do not like it - then don`t buy it!

Call it a gold mine BMX bike or call it a
junk BMX bike. In the end, It is the rider
of the BMX bike that matters. If the rider
is any good he/she can ride on gold or junk
and still win at the end.

The review may suck to some people. but,
the marketing strategy for ALL BMX has been
way messed up for years now. And it still
is today as BMX can not get its crap together.

You say marketing strategy?
I mean look, you have a skateboarder pushing
BMX bikes. That looks sad and looks like a big
joke in any BMX sales depts. But the big question
would be, does it work for the sales? They are
pushing them Tony Hawk bikes out the doors.
Quality or not; So, They must be doing some
thing right, you think?

In all,
It is a BMX bike and I respect that part....

Re: Tony Hawk HuckJam signature series bikes!?

All I have to say is if anyone here were offered $1million to put their name on a bike they would in a second even the members here.  It's easy to criticize a product or service until you are actually involved yourself.  Then when we get involved and we are walking in those shoes things mysteriously change and so do we.  Kind of funny that way.  Marketing Strategy, heck yeah, it's called seeing a way make money and a living.  We are all trying to do it.  Some succeed and some don't.  The ones who haven't made it there yet get critical and bitter and finally drop off the face of the earth.  But the ones that do will always be in the spotlight and under the gun.  It's the price you pay for success.  Comes with the territory.  smile


I like how you worded this Gene...

I've read a lot of hate posts regarding this whole thing and never agreed with any of them.  I'm happy that Tony Hawk has been this successful in life.  He's worked very hard to get to where he is today.  I remember him back in the day being just another punk kid with a skateboard who followed his dream and now look where's he at today.

For $349 you can call 2-hip and they will hook you up with a quality bike.

I bought my daughter a GT fly earlier this year with the same level of parts as the "signature series" Tony Hawk for $250.00 (buy it now) off the bay. So if I was looking for that level of bike for a rider I would shop around a bit IMOP. BUT. in the end if you like that bike better then anything else out there then that's the bike for you.

Re: Tony Hawk HuckJam signature series bikes!?

Well I haven't been looking around for the "new school" stuff that is out there today. I just came across this bike and
thought it was cool that Tony Hawk had a bmx line. I used to skate when I was younger and wish I could skate like most
of those guys but I ended up getting into bmx bikes instead. ( I never picked up skating that well LoL )

That particular bike seemed to be built with some pretty nice parts for the price but like I said I haven't really shopped
around yet for any "new school" stuff. I know there is a lot of new brands out there now days and assumed most bmx
bikes are manufactured now days oversea's anyway so figured what the heck. tongue

Re: Tony Hawk HuckJam signature series bikes!?

I own the Wired. 

Good bike, strong f/f.  Horrible 6.6" bars.  got rid of them for some white 8" Odysseys.

Good brakes, rims and tires.

Good crank arms. 170mm chromo.

BAD Saddle, pedals and BB bearings
had to replace the pedals and BB with in 2 weeks of riding.
Replaced saddle with a baby blue and white Primo Hemorrhoid

Weight with out pegs is 28.5lbs.  you could probably shave 3.5 more off with folding tires, lighter wheels and loosing all the brakes. A lighter saddle with a smaller post, and WAY lighter forks. These forks are THICK Chromo with very large dropouts.

Or you could just go to the gym, get stronger, and lose 5 lbs.  then your bike will FEEL 3 lbs lighter.

But I digress.
