Re: Talk Dyno to me!

Not absolutely sure how to read this serial number, but I think this is a 1999 Dyno Zone. Just wondering when Dyno’s (GT’s) started being manufactured with the thicker, heavier (down) tubes? The down tube on this frame is “thick”!

I just want to know an approximate year so I don’t make this mistake again!

Even without checking the serial I can tell you that yours is 100% a ‘99 Zone: until ‘98 they had the coaster brake mounts still which they did away with in ‘99. From Y2K the rear dropouts were changed into a huge ugly round shape ie. yours without a coaster brake mount AND still sporting the 90’s style (not round) dropouts at the same time can be a constellation only possible in 1999.

Dyno has been tweaking with things all along but it was in ‘91 when they changed their trademark front forks to straight ones and started increasing the wheelbases, the first major deviation from what you might call the “classic” 80’s Dyno look. Still models from the early 90’s were more or less similar to the ones from the 80’s.
The year was ‘94 when they finally came out with the fat down tubes. The end of an era, from there on everything was strictly mid school, fat tubes and different geometry.

I’m feeling for you, TBH I made exactly the same mistake: been looking for an 80’s Compe and ended up buying a ‘99 Zone without even noticing the differences. The frame was pretty nice and fresh powdered red (which you might recall from my previous answers) but I just could not put up with it not being the one I had my mind set on. So I ended up selling my ‘99 Zone (and bought a ‘87 Haro Team Sport instead). However, it is still a dream of mine to get a “Lord Voelker” from around ‘87-‘88, the ultimate Dyno Compe IMO. No offense to mid school fans, but my personal preference is strictly ‘80s old school freestyle. It’s just different.


Even as an old fart, BMX for me is still the same thing I grew up seeing in E.T., Rad and BMX Bandits... guess I’m just another hopeless bug trapped in amber.

Re: Talk Dyno to me!

Forgive the late reply. I believe that the seat post and clamp are 22.2mm. The drops are 3/8ths. It would be great if another member can confirm, but these numbers fit mine.

Sorry to have nothing to post proudly in this amazing thread - yet...
But I started a project with a ‘99 Zone frame from quite a distance (I’m in Japan and the bike back home in Hungary) and since I can’t measure it myself I hope some of you could help me out with the
- size of the seatpost (22.2 perhaps?)
- size of the seatpost clamp
- and the size of the dropouts (3/8 or 14mm?)
on a 1999 Dyno Zone.
Anything is appreciated, thanks in advance!

So cool. I was just looking at your bikes the other day and was checking the red one out lol. That black 87 d-tour is super cool looking too!

Yes, I updated the blue 86 compe II earlier this year. Stil llooking for a few more parts for it.. namely, an original maui blue 86 clamp, a longer blue chain and a maui blue tioga CD chainring:

Re: Talk Dyno to me!

Hey Dyno-files! I started a thread for a question I had about the frame design of the '90 Slammer, but it's not getting much action. Thought I'd try in here instead.

Cut and paste from my other thread.

"I don't know how I didn't notice this before. I saw a picture of someone's recently-completed 1990 Slammer on Instagram yesterday and commented 'is that a '90 Pro Compe modified to be a Slammer?' I asked this because I a) would have been mortified if someone had taken the unicorn '90 Pro Compe and welded a bashguard onto it, and b) because I saw the Slammer frame in question had the elevated down tube that I thought was unique to the Pro Compe of that year.

See, I had a friend back in the day who had a '90 Slammer, and it didn't have the elevated down tube. But then, I checked the Museum '90 Slammer entries, and low & behold, about half of them have the elevated down tube.

What's up?

Looked at the reference section, found this:

Also, the 1990 Slammer was available in three different frame designs-
The standard issue has non curved seatstays that join the chainstays at the dropouts.
The team model (sold as a complete or frame & fork) same as the standard except the seatstays curve downward at the dropout, and do not meet the chainstays (similar to early 90's Robinsons).
The Slammer ll - similar to the Detour but w/ a welded on bashguard.

Based on a review of every single 1990 Dyno Slammer submitted to the Museum, I can't see a single frame with the 'Robinson' style seatstays, as mentioned and seen in the reference section (1990 Dyno Catalog, and Slammer frame listing.) However, as we all know, Dyno was often using prototypes for the catalog pictures, with features that didn't make it to the production bikes (like the Voelker-spec Pro Compe graphics in 88.)

In the 1990 catalog, we can see that the red 'Team' Slammer has the Robinson-style seatstays, but the blue inset 'standard' Slammer has the 1990 Pro-Compe style dropouts. Later in the catalog, the Pro Compe listed as frame only (under 'Hardware') is clearly a repainted 1988-89 Pro Compe without the elevated down tube. In fact, it's difficult to tell if the main image of the chrome 1990 Pro Compe has the elevated down tube, either.

Has anyone ever seen a Robinson-style seatstay 90 Slammer? My guess is it was a proto only. I would guess that both 'team' and 'standard' model 90 Slammers used Pro Compes as their basis, with added bashguard, and the 'Slammer II' used Detours as their basis, with added bashguard.

Question is -- was the geometry and tubing lengths the same for Detour and Pro Compe? Why the different frame designs?


43! Ahahahahahaha... 43.

Re: Talk Dyno to me!

I can tell you that I rode a 1990 Slammer that was purchased as a frame and fork and was what you had described as the standard issue.

Re: Talk Dyno to me!

I just grabbed a midschool compe frame on the cheap and I'm gathering parts to do a detour tribute. Snagged some repop pretzels. Everything else is basically in my stash already. I'll update as the build progresses.
