All those who want the new Beat speak the hell up..we cant let them just abandon a project like this..
"We outta go over there and rip that muthar down!"(RAD THE MOVIE) lol


Heres my profound, life changing statement.
Lifes a bitch..PASS ME A BEER.

They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react - do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.

Re: 2016 Skyway Streetbeat Unveiled

Crazy how not too long ago you couldn't give a Street Beat away. There were nos framesets everywhere. Now you're hard pressed to find one and when you do they're commanding high dollar. A shame this project isn't a priority for the new owners. Obviously it's not as profitable long term as their wheel business but it's still profitable in the short term. Not to mention that selling retro frames will also sell more wheels roll

This is exactly what is ruining OS bmx.....greed! Others will make other excuses,but very few will state the obvious.

Definitely true, problem is we all need to be on the same page.  I’m happy to give a bro deal to someone that really wants something, but too many times this person just turns around and flips for more.  You get burned like that a few times and you start pricing things the same as everyone else sadly.

I hear that!  Happened to me a few times so now I am reluctant.

If I got burned twice for giving out bro deals,it would be the end of that from me.I also would inform the person who got the bro deal,I will never sell anything to them again,unless they are willing to pay more than what I am listing the item for to make up for my loss.
