Re: List your OLD SCHOOL BMX Bike Shop Here

The 3 main shops I grew up in / worked at / screwed off at were:

1. The Bike Barn - Walzem Road - San Antonio, Texas
2. The Spoke Shop - Walzem Road - San Antonio, Texas
3. Action Bikes - Pat Booker Road - Universal City, Texas

The first two have been gone for ages.  Action Bikes is still in business today but Jim Sanders sold it to Howard years ago and is in a new location further down the road closer to RAFB.  I still stop by once and a while to see the guys over there.  Great shop / awesome customer service!!!


Trading (not selling):
My NOS green Haro tires for NOS purple or pink Haro tires
My 1990 Bashguard Team Master f/f for a 1990 Bashguard Zolatone Master f/f

WTB:
Black Elina Flyte Tech / Redline Tecmatic BB
1989 / 1990 Haro Bashguard plates for Master and Sport
1984 VDC Freestyler / 1984 GJS Freestyler / 1984 Free Agent Freeflite / 1984 Powerlite Freestyle

Interestingly I bought a bike at the Bike Barn in Houston back in '96.  I just checked, they have 8 locations.  Wonder if it's the same owners.


After over 5 years here, I finally have some bikes listed!

Also was one in Whiting and another in Highland Indiana but I do not remember their names.

Ridge cyclery(sp) became my go to for bike stuff as its like the only one in that area.

Don’t underestimate the power of a good deal on a vintage freestyle bike
