I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.  We're just the guys to do it.

Re: 1987 GT Pro Freestyle Tour Team

Thanks guys!
I've had this bike for years - it's been my avatar pic for a long time too. But the parts have changed and evolved over the years, so I wanted to document it as it is today. It's a fun one.   I wish I was still on vacation though. smile

Re: 1987 GT Pro Freestyle Tour Team

I found some older pics of this bike on vacation from a few years before I posted it in the museum.
I was running one-piece cranks and DB Woody Bars on it for a while.
smile

It's definitely my Summer Ride.

Awesome man. Maybe we can sync up!
Sadly - they tore down the skatepark that was next to the boardwalk on 6th street. But I hear they built (or are building) a new one back towards the bay.

Found another pic of the bike from years ago... on the NYC ride.
Rode across the Brooklyn Bridge. smile
