Re: Worst BMX ideas of all time

I always thought any thing from pacific freestyle products were USELESS. The standing platform on the early DK freestyle stems look like they would hurt your knees bad if u hit them. Tioga air step bars also had those useless platforms too. bORROWED THE BARS PHOTO ....

First of all... this thread is not supposed to be about what you hate. It is supposed to be about the worst ideas in bmx. I will give you an example that your closed mind may understand. Instead of the worst ideas in bmx, lets think about the worst ideas in cars. A few examples would be the Geo Metro, making muscle cars lower their compression ratios for EPA reasons, the Edsel etc. It is not about what we hate. It is about what ideas they had, that failed. You know what failing is right? Because if you read the thread, you should know this isn't about hate. It is about failures in bmx.... and you are the only one expressing hate. Just saying. Ride safe brother.

Super Suckers.  The name says it all.

From personal experience I have to agree. At about age 8 I wanted yellow snake bellies and got yellow super suckers. I still remember the cussing as my dad tried to get them on my rims. I'll never forget having rocks stuck in those tires you didnt notice it riding in the dirt until you hit the pavement to go home. Luckily I was able to trade bikes with a kid that had a flat tire and didnt know how to fix it!

Yea what's so wrong with midschool anyway? I love my 97 Haro Zippo and it's not that heavy. It feels pretty light for a 1020 steel frame, mabye 27-29 lbs built. That's not insanely heavy

Re: Worst BMX ideas of all time

THEKOOLKIDS...
I again urge you to read the op. Also, I own old school, mid school and new school. Of course with technology, new school is the most advanced. However... open a danscomp catalog. Without stickers and colors, every bike looks the same. That is the one thing about new school that I don't like. Even being a new school rider, you have to admit, bitd frames were like little pieces of art. Most were different from the next. Again.... this thread is not intended to be a thread of hate agianst any generation of bikes. It is supposed to be about failures of products in bmx.

I really don't hate you.  But you have failed to understand what this thread is about.  So I am adding you to the list-you have faied in the bmxmuseum as far as this thread goes.  I don't think anybody is argueing that todays bmx athletes are spectacular.  I have been to a few Dew Cup comps and I leave with my jaw hanging open because they are so amazing.
But to try to insight an arguement is stupid.  Forums should be fun and conversational and not arguementative.  If you hate old school so much then don't post on a website called a museum.

Re: Worst BMX ideas of all time

I will say that back in the day you could take a GT Performer, Haro Sport, Redline RL-20II, Hutch Trickstar and a General Hustler and take all of the stickers off of them and I could tell them apart because they all had their different designs and color schemes.  Now adays I really cant tell the difference because the frames are so similar in design.  True?  Not sure.  But back in the day they were WAY different and much easier to tell apart.   Nobody fails here.  Just maybe a difference or a preference.

Re: Worst BMX ideas of all time

I just recently got my first old Haro, and I have to agree about the rear standers. Worse than useless. I wrecked my ankle on day one seeing if I could find a way to use those. They're even worse than the ankle saws on my trick star.
Pretty much all the welded on fork and chain stay standers were just moronic in design.

I want to say Skyway axle pegs too, but it's a fine line there for me.
Like the Rotor, those pegs had design flaws, but these were good ideas that advanced the sport when someone thought of a way to do it better.

Actule no, Roy is one of the few that ride his bmx bike like it was meant to be.  His hate for pivotal seats is ok by me why because he actual has a reason.. Not just oo they all look the same. Oo this oo that. New skool blows cause you can't tell what's what...
He hates hem cause for him, they don't hold up. They break there cheap ect no problems from me. I give him a hard time here and there but it's out of fun lol
People just need to grow up.. Lol yea ok make fun of the tight clothes..... I guess you forgot history repeats it self.. Tight pants have been around for a long time why don't some you look back at your 80s clothes lol.

This made me think about my 16x class when I had Spins....JUNK. They ride well as long as you don't leave the ground with a lil bit of a cross wind. I think eating crap because of those fueled my dislike for other mags.



I not a huge fan of pivotal seats myself. So much that I don't own one...Yet anyways. I see a pivotal seat sort of like a step backwards...You run a pivotal and you lose adjustment(On most seats). I thought technology was supposed to give is more useful options...not take them away.
