Spotted this in the netflix show Arrested Development. The scene is a flashback to the 80s yet the bike has vbrakes and 1-1/8 threadless setup. Damn netflix and its bad continuity.

Perhaps the bikes are remnants from a previous transportal time jump.  Another plot twist.  Somebody in there was from the future and brought their bike back with em!

As soon as I saw bikes in this show I was wondering if they were legit OS.  Then there was a close-up shot of the front sprocket.  Nope.  Ha, ha.  I was put off but I guess I will still try to watch the show.

Re: New Netflix series "Stranger Things" features bmx bikes.

The first thing I said was:
- 1/18 stems, in 1983?
- Pegs, on a stingray?
- Slammed, pivotal seat?

My wife punched me...

Seriously They got the cars, appliances, wardrobe right...  Why not the bikes?

You can even hear the loud-ass 12t cassette hub.
Not in '83 unless you had a playing card clothes pinned in your spokes

Re: New Netflix series "Stranger Things" features bmx bikes.

I'm so glad it wasn't just me. When Lucas is at the fence of the research facility and drops his bike, there's a really clear shot of his cranks, as well as all the other exampled.

That stingray sure did look like the 1999 reissues. I let it all go when they played When It's Cold I'd Like to Die though.... Even though that song came out in 1995....

All of my non-bike friends (I call them heathens) keep telling me the bikes weren't a big deal. I can't make them understand that, with those kids being the main characters, that would be like doing a Smokey and the Bandit movie set in 1977 but using a 2008 Trans Am. They even got the shitty grid wall paper and matching bedding sets right, but not what would amount to less than 5 grand for all 12 bikes.

Even a modern Magna or Huffy would've been closer to accurate than most of what they used.


Do I owe you feedback? Please remind me via PM and I'll take care of it.

Re: New Netflix series "Stranger Things" features bmx bikes.

I really enjoyed this show. Use to fancy Winona Ryder. Hadn't seen her in anything for years. Not just as much a looker as I remembered. The bikes did suck. I would have leant them mine. Roll on series 2.

My wife laughed at me for pointing this out. But I'm ready for season 2.


I love building bikes just so I can go scratch them..
