Re: GT obsession!

Was thinking of changing to a blue seat post and blue dyno pretzels on the 89 Aggressor.  what do you guys think?  Or should I leave it with chrome layback and 87 pro performer bars?

Re: GT obsession!

Tons of dope bikes in this thread! Yet another reason I like this site. Question though. What year did down tubes started to become thicker or bigger? Was it the late 90’s or early 2000’s?

It came with these road/mtb Rotors:-

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/47558/rotor-3df60e22b0376.jpg

...which are quite good, so I kept them on there BUT the wider spindle throws out the chainline, so I've been on the lookout for something BMX-specific and recently picked up these DXRs for a decent price:-

https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/47558/dxr-cranks-160cc7dec43.jpg

Am just waiting on a new BB, then will switch them over. cool

Re: GT obsession!

Ran accross this beautiful survivor fork and couldn't pass it up.  I want to build a basass 87 PFT around it.  Need some help finding a survivor frame to compliment it!

It really is.  There are a couple impressions from fork standers in their original positions, but I would day a 9.5/10 on the survivor scale.  Need help matching it up!
