  1. That R&R info is very interesting. The first real-deal BMX frame I had was an R&R, but it was the one that had the teardrop shaped down tube. I always thought R&Rs looked very sleek and racey. Just saw another thread about the R&R... the one I had was called the Smoker. I have some photos somewhere...
  2. Cripes... I don't have any glamor shots. Just me on my Tuff bikes from the old days. Maybe I'll post them on IG.
  3. Nice. I don't know Bo Diddley about freestyle bikes, but in the first pic with the closeup of the cranks, it looks like it is textured on the upper surface with the pedal forward and shiney smooth on the lower. Is this to give extra traction for tricks and such?
  4. holy cow... Mangalloy. There's a word I haven'y heard in decades. And those Schwinn tires... I really liked the front when I still ran 2.125 front, 1.75 rear. That is one, sweet bike.
  5. Cripes... very nice. I like the black chain ring best, meself. I am going to start the slow process of getting my '81 Quad built back up. Quadangle= Alltime Favorite Bike!
  6. That. Is. Sweet! And PReston Petty grips! I loved those things. Those and Malcolm Smith were my favorite grips. Always had to buy two pairs for use on the BMXs though...
  7. Cripes... my bro lived there until a couple of years ago. He lives in Gold Hill now with a big piece of land and horses... his dream. Good to hear you are doing well.
  8. Wow. I remember her from when I first started racing here in Bakersfield. She was really good. One of the fast locals for sure. Sad news to hear... wayyy too young.
  9. As mentioned above, FitBike makes a 22 that looks very Mongoose-ish in appearance. Chrome, rainbow prism decals in the Mongoose style with very similar looking font. I came really close to getting one, but opted to build up a 20" instead.
  10. I totally remember this. I was 6'1" and I thought something a bit larger than twenty would be perfect. 26 seemed to big to me and I wasn't quite sold on 24. When this article came out, I was kind of hoping for a revolution, since I thought it was the perfect solution. It seems I remember Stu making remarks about the size, but can't remember if it was pro or con. A few years back when I saw the 22" Fit, I commented to my son that it wasn't a new idea and that it was tossed around a bit in the '80s.
  11. Sounds right. Those look exactly like mine that I got in '82.
  12. I have one of the blueprints (a copy) of the Stick drawn over the looptail that I got from Scot... can't remember the dates though.
  13. Holy cow, Steve. That's the best thing I've seen in a long time. Caught a quick glimpse of an R&R at about the 4:10 mark. Was also digging the upturned roady drops on one of the kids bikes. That sure brings back memories...good times. Those kinds of tracks were so much fun to ride, and so different from the tracks of today. Thanks for posting it.
