MTB companies that crossed over to bmx

My Bontrager with specialized flat spoke and widebody hubs
And since the black ano on rims fades to brown it matches the decal color of the Bon Bon

Actually, Bontrager was an amazing Mt bike company, that was bought out by trek. There are only approx 10 Bontrager's bmx frames made in santa cruz by bontrager, and I want one! Oh, and the frames were designed to use S&M pitchforks, the stock forks are horrible, and mess up the geometry ALOT.. GAry


Would like lots of bikes but the SE Hauler is one that has a lot of sentimental value to me. Anyone got one?

This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My signature is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. My signature, without me, is useless. Without my signature, I am useless.

Would love to acquire a Sunn B-Mix 26.

Where are the Gary Fisher BMXs'?

Re: MTB companies that crossed over to bmx

When I was younger and in high school and college I could tear up from my house by UCSC to Cabbrillo college faster than cars.best time to Aptos was like 22 minutes I think,but I was riding like I was a bike courier .
Had a nice mountain bike cannondale that was like a staggared wheel size,had a large rim in front and a smaller diameter one in the back(paid like 1200 in 89)

Re: MTB companies that crossed over to bmx

so where did you dig up the picture of that Ritchey? That may be the coolest i've seen for BMX related.
I love mountain bikes and Ritchey is very highly regarded in that community as well as track bikes which he started in.

I know where a Slingshot 26 is.  Couldn't get him to sell it to me.

Re: MTB companies that crossed over to bmx

That Ritchey is really cool and makes me wonder if Chris Chance ever did a BMX frame.  If so, I want it.
