1996 Dyno Nitro

1996 Dyno Nitro

1996 Dyno Nitro Chromoly Main Tubes  Sidepull brakes, Dyno logo bottom mount 1" stem for threaded fork.  Weinmann zac 4019 alloy rims with GT hubs.  Dyno seat, Dyno Kalloy post, and Dyno gr

This was about 4 up in the Dyno BMX Line-up for that year from what I can tell: Blaze, WSX, VFR, Nitro, then Sonic, not including freestyle bikes and cruisers. I have a 1997 Dyno NSX and you’d be hard pressed to tell the difference. It’s the components that change. It has a better Dyno branded stem, alloy Weinmann wheels with GT hubs, sidepull (early v-brakes) instead of old caliper brakes, GT seat post clamp.  I took the handlebar from my NSX since it had the Dyno decal on the rise instead of under the grips. I took the seat from the NSX although it’s hard as hell. The seat post is ironically from a Powerlite P-17, but is stamped with the Dyno emblem. The hubs on this particular bike I swapped with nice polished alloy Mohawk 36 holes.

Re: 1996 Dyno Nitro

NOO- this is Cantilever brakes.  they don't work as well as U-brakes, but they should be easy to get your hands on -and the fit.

Your other option would be simple caliper brakes since they put a mounting hole for them and they'll work fine,  but won't look as nice.

Re: 1996 Dyno Nitro

yeah I purchased a tektro v-brake.  Do you know what the stock brakes were on these bikes?  Thanks for you help.

Re: 1996 Dyno Nitro

These were pre-vbrakes -the predecessor of that in that they used a Y shaped cable on the back instead of the curved 'noodle' or tube with the wire inside.  http://i367.photobucket.com/albums/oo116/nowicki13/IMG_7718.jpg

Re: 1996 Dyno Nitro

Oh Man, I just gave away the wheels +a spare on Saturday.
Sorry...
Those Mohawks aren't standard.  This bike would have had plain GT hubs.

Have you tried mounting a caliper brake? Where would you route the cable? I have a 96 Nitro 24 and I'm wondering if I can use a caliper down there. I'm not a fan of cantilever/linear brakes.


Looking for a NOS or Mint Blue Kashimax MX Seat.
