Re: Skyway TA is back

Taking me a bit to post from my phone, but why would Skyway change from the last few years of production.  China has it down.

Re: Skyway TA is back

I spent 2k on my my chrome 24 and over that on my white one.

I’ve thought about getting one, but unless it’s listed for sale in the states, I’m gonna pass.

The decals got messed up, started peeling at the edges so I just took them off. I thought about ordering a set of black ones from planet, but I kinda like it this way.

Really nice! Love how it does not look like all the other retro TA's built up.Something different from the rest.When I ordered my retro,I also purchased a extra set of decals cause I planned on getting the frame,fork,bar and other parts powdered pearl white to match.

Exactly!!!

Don't know why they are bashing the previous TA's either,maybe perhaps to hype up this one,but who knows.Pretty lame how they make it seem this new one is created purely out of passion and for non profit,versus the previous models are the complete opposite and done for the sake of greed.

I'd much rather have the 2 I already own with the modern technology and for the price of those batches of "repops parts" I expected it to have Graphites.

Not bashing but a serious question. What did it cost you to build those 2 rides in US Dollars?

Well, mine doesn't compare to those as I used top of the line modern parts, Paul's components brakes and levers, Profile bottom brackets, Knight Bikes "Ruf-Neck" stems to maintain the vintage look, Graphites A'me Unitrons ect.
