Posted 25 Nov 2012nice thread.
yeah, that F-1 thing was a Shimano creation that Haro, DB and (i think) General got on board with. they were all nearly identical bikes.
i remember this push for a market. my reaction to these ads like most others was that it might be cool to have a zippy little street bike, but in no way could rival the bmx bike you wanted or already had.
i'm from the east coast, so when i saw the features in the mags on downhill/gravity racing bitd, it seemed pretty rad.
of course fairing = aero = speed, but when fairings were in their infancy is when i thought this sport was most interesting.
the plus! feature was the story i remember most. they showed several variations including running motomags/other heavy mags and barbells through the bb shell for momentum.
Also, flipping the frame over to create a very lax steering angle along w mounting a screen door dampner for steering control at speed.
Posted 16 Aug 2012Thruster pedals, Holla!
26" alliant forks
they were supposed to make these, but the word is alliant was in the process of folding before they were turned out.
somehow i think there is a couple somewhere... i know i wouldnt be surprised although i-ve never seen one anywhere.
