Re: Dyno Heritage ~ Voelker Model

On another note gt bicyles and gary turner G2 bmx are supposed to be collaberating some cool stuff in the future. Since the turners, mostly Craig started making the retros they've been in the public eye distinctly seperate companies. Its kinda cool i think. Im tired of retro SE, bring it!


GT USA made midschool race fan! 4130 beantown / 508 chromie.

Riding resets my stress level, its lead to allot of new friendships and I'm grateful for that. Esp the local crew!

Just like the 29” pro performers they made all of those in dayglo colors and only yellow for the 20” models. If only gt had a clue they would be making a ton of cash right now

I think the 20" would appeal to old guys only. Some would ride them and some would just show bike them. The bigger wheels appeal to the old guy and the young kid. Bigger demographic equals more sales.

It sounds like it will be a 26 only that will retail around $700 and be sold by PlanetBmx and Gary Turner’s site.

Sweet!  Bars and overall design of everything is really cool.  If I ever went to a 26, this one is it.

Curious why 26 is the size they pick, when 24 does the same thing and is way more maneuverable?  26 is heavier and harder to bunny hop and probably more expensive to build.

People aren't really going to freestyle this bike.  26" sells better than 24".

+1 Dyno and GT had equivalent models on the freestyle side. Same geometry too?

I've only been here for 5 minutes, but it seems like a lot of guys that weigh far over 130lbs. between the age of 40-50 don't want to look and feel like a circus bear riding a toy bike. Myself included. I still think 20" bikes are cool AF, I just don't fit on one. Why the large freestyle bikes? For me, it's all show with some go. Just not going over the handle bars balls first lol

Go over the handle bars balls first.....Thats what I do! big_smile I have gotten good at turning into a ball and rolling once I come of the bike.

Agree.  I think the GT Performers just got way more attention in the 84-89 years and were more popular with all the bright colors early on.  Everything seemed to be compared to GT, Haro and Hutch.

Thought it was vertigo=d tour? And compe=performer?  Anyway when performer was 219 the compe was 209. So that was a tick cheaper. Same for all models by 20 bucks or so. Maybe that's where reputation came from? Same bikes made at same time with same parts. They are all still cool.


what do I get for 20 dollars?

Maybe later on as Vertigo wasn’t around until 88

Re: Dyno Heritage ~ Voelker Model

Vertigo and Compe was the lowest models of each. Performer and D-tour was a step up.

I don't think the geometry was the same between Dyno and GT. I remember the 88 PFTT being tested had a 75 degree head angle. I don't think the Pro Compe was 75. I think it might have been 74. I had an 88 PFTT and later got an 88 Pro Compe frame that I pieced together as my "ramp/street" bike. To me, the GT felt longer.

This ^

Pro Compe Team =  PFT Team
Pro Compe = PFT
Detour = Pro Performer
Compe = Vertigo

Performer was a tad above the Vertigo and Compe.  Vertigo had a different frame but some were 4130... which trumped the Performer since it was only tri-moly but it had a 73ish HT angle early on and then when it went double bend it got better.

Re: Dyno Heritage ~ Voelker Model

Another factor in GT's popularity over Dyno was GT was obviously huge in the race scene and it was super well known. More kids probably grabbed a GT Performer at the bike shop if the decision was either a GT or Dyno.  More than likely all their friends had GT's and that's what they knew was cool.  I bet Dyno's were lighter though.

Re: Dyno Heritage ~ Voelker Model

Kinda dig the bars for some reason.  Never thought about a pretzel cruiser bar.

The rest, well, nahh.

Oh, Dave is probably wearing the kind of attire most will be when riding one of these.

Yeah they are pointless but pretty cool... I guess a lot of stuff we like is that way.

I'd buy a set in chrome if they had em'

Also  not a big fan of the 26/29 thing but this one is kind of OK

Re: Dyno Heritage ~ Voelker Model

It's a 29 and Voelker says he loves it.  He's learning again on it.   He said he told them maybe a 26 but that he wasn't sure about a 29 but they sent him one anyway and now he's all about it.

749 is the number I was told and I didn't hear Gary Turner's name mentioned.

I was impressed with the Haro Freestyler though.
