Re: The most immitated and copied parts and or features

Too bad Redline is just a shadow of what it once was.

Redline double clamp stem-I think it may have been first or maybe Matthews

LOL Pathetic is having to get a new account because you are afraid of your wife...  Your turn kitten balls ????

If you are OK with your actions why the concerted effort to hide what happened?

Don't screw over those you tell your secrets...its not talkin shit if it's TRUE.

Re: The most immitated and copied parts and or features

+1 to the MX1000/900 probably being the most copied part including the tech 3 or 4 MX levers.


1 1/8" came from MTB.   Standard.. did it first in BMX though..   I don't really consider it copied.. more like bike evolution.   Integrated.. came lately, and even that is from MTB/road initially.. First company to use it, I thought was FBM.   Premium/Haro followed, and then everyone followed.  but still, evolution, not copying.

The Redneck has been copied like crazy.. and even the Redneck is a copy, half being the GT block/mallet and the Forklifter.  The Forklifter alone had tons of cheap ripoff designs on many department store bikes.

Re: The most immitated and copied parts and or features

Years after I quite racing I noticed BMX bikes did not evolve much. I think the sport died in the later 80's. Innovation stopped until the late 90's (I'm sure there are exceptions, but I never followed later bikes). Modern bike are ungraded with modern materials and much improved, but some many parts from the earlier 80's are still copied today. My son had a cheap bike with comp III's, MX style brakes, and DX style pedals, suntour style stem and 80's geometery. They did things very well BITD, so much that the copies continue today.


Please ban me. Crazy you can't delete an account here. Seems like it would be a requirement of any forum. IDK...

Life it so too short to be a squishy leftist like most mods...

Nore were they the 1st bmx co.
So did they just copied every other bmx co. To make there

Redline introduced 990 brakes mounted to the bottom of the seat stay on their 1988 Redline RL-20II. This design feature is copied on nearly every single BMX freestyle/street/park bike today. Therefore, the Redline RL-20II is the greatest bike every designed, and everything else is just a poor imitation.

Except the 1987 Diamond Back Mike Dominguez Strike Zone used the brake boss first, they used Suntour XC roller cam brakes b/c the 990 wasn't out yet

Who pioneered the threadless fork/stem? That was S&M right?

That was a pretty major move forward.

It was Dia-Compe in 1991. They held the patent for the "Ahead Set". The MTB market got first dibs.

Re: The most immitated and copied parts and or features

In addition to my last post, it was the US division of Dia-Compe that brought the threadless headset to market.

The company is still around today, known as Cane Creek.  -> https://www.canecreek.com/our-story/
