2002 Huffy Primus

2002 Huffy Primus

The Huffy Primus was Huffy's top-of-the-line race bike.  It debuted in 1999 with a $999.95 MSRP and featured Profile cassette hubs and cranks, Shimano DX V-brakes, Mavic rims, and a DK stem and bars.

I bought this bike in Pittsburg, CA on March 8, 2012 from its original owner. I'm not a huge Huffy fan, but the brake set up intrigued me, so I decided to check out the bike and bring it home. Many of the parts on it were in decent shape, but the frame had a small crack in the bottom bracket, so I may just hold onto the headset, fork, bars, pedals, wheels, brake set, sprocket, and seat post, and get rid of the rest...
The frame is a 2002 Huffy Primus (with a 21.75" top tube) that was manufactured by Kinesis.  This particular frame has serial number AP01E00072, so it was the 72nd 2002 model year frame built.  It was made out of 7005 series aluminum and features Huffy's EXP (Elongated Cross Section Profile) chain stays.  The frame also came with build in chain tensioners (which are now missing...), replaceable steel dropout-protector plates (to protect the aluminum dropouts from the steel axle nuts), and an integrated seat post clamp.  The head tube, which uses a standard 1-1/8" headset, was designed to reduce ovalization of that tube by allowing the lower headset cup to fit snugly inside the head tube.  Aside from increasing the durability of this frame, this gives the frame a clean and unique look (Source: BMX Museum Member Guest).  The frame was designed to accept a 20" wheel and use V-brakes.
Also, if you were wondering, the rear hub on this bike is a BMX hub (w/ 110mm spacing) that was designed to use disc brakes!  Profile also makes a cassette/disc hub, but they cost quite a bit more than this Kore Hoochie rear hub...

Re: 2002 Huffy Primus

Thanks for the comments guys smile .  If I understood correctly, the original owner of the bike got it new from a sponsorship deal with a local bike shop.  After racing for several years, he tried downhill racing, so he threw on the disc brake (maybe because of the higher speeds).  When I got the bike, it hadn't been used for a few years (the tires were completely flat and there was very little pressure in the disc brake line), so I pumped up the tires and had some fun smile .  It's not my favorite bike, but the disc brake set up is pretty cool cool .

The Mavic rims came stock on the 1999 Huffy Primus bike wink .  Since my bike was not purchased complete (and it's not a 1999 Huffy Primus), it didn't come with Mavic rims.  I provided this info to help make the point out that Huffy made/sold some nice mid-school BMX bikes back in the late-1990's and early-2000's.
