How many 40+ guys still prefer their old vs new ride?

I'm just curious to see how many of us old guys still prefer riding our old school bike compared to the new school stuff or even the retros?

Pics are welcomed!  smile

Re: How many 40+ guys still prefer their old vs new ride?

Not 40 or over,but I much prefer to ride the NS bikes over the oldschool rides.The NS stuff just feels better,the parts are better designed and much more reliable.Whenever I think about riding my OS bike,first thing to pop in my mind is the threaded coming loose.

Long as the retros are designed with NS innovations into them,I have no issues riding them.

Good points! And I agree with the NS stuff being superior. But still there's just something that feels comfortable, maybe familiar? About riding an old school bike.

Re: How many 40+ guys still prefer their old vs new ride?

Depends on riding where and how. For just cruising around, my 2009 MX-24 is a top choice; smooth and great looking. On the track, no contest. I've ridden my '80 Pro-Line on our local track and, while fun, it can't compare to my Flight Pro 24. Now I just picked up a Flight Pro 20 and look forward to thrashing it on the track too. big_smile so, for getting serious, new is in, especially when the new stuff has good, old-school DNA.

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: How many 40+ guys still prefer their old vs new ride?

Metalurgy is the issue. Old metal deteriorates. But new metal isnt as good as it used to be. Just talk to a guy in the know from a bodyshop. They ll tell ya.

Nothing about riding a OS bikes feels comfortable compared to a NS,they were designed for kids bitd and NS bikes ride 10 times better.

Re: How many 40+ guys still prefer their old vs new ride?

I like both. I dont want to push my older stuff, dont want to chance..not that it would, but better safe than sorry. So, if Im trying stuff, Ill ride new. But the old is completely RAD.

I will be 44 on Wednesday this is the last few sessions of mine riding a 40 plus pound Hoffman sd4. And a 30 pound dk signal . I love the older stuff. 2 inch diameter pegs , suntuor coaster hubs, front and back brakes . I tried a new school bike I got hooked up with this past summer. It was 20 pounds and after riding it for about three months I got rid of most it.It was good for rolling tricks in circles but was very limiting for much else .
