I remember when GT was good.
gt is still a good bmx/bike company, why do most people assume gt is crap

Because they ARE crap. Pacific Cycle bought GT, Mongoose & Satan knows who else a few years back, and the quality went downhill. I built quite a few in my short tenure at a bike shop.

Well actually that just depends on which one you get, like most bike companys. I have a steed and it is an awesome bike

I remember riding because we loved it. Not being part of any scene (because there wasn't really a scene), just riding because, well, just because. I remember LOVING hitting the dirt when it rained and coming home covered head to toe in mud. I remember loving cleaning our bikes afterward. I remember building plywood ramps in a down-grade alley and doing our "Blue Angel" stunt routines. I remember riding to Peddler Bike Shop in Lansdale, PA, and drooling over the Scramblers and later the Performers and Pro Performers that I could never afford. I remember the first time I saw a BMX magazine and thinking "Oh, it's catching on". Ah, the innocence of youth in the early '80s.

I remember when you had to buy a conversion kit in order to turn tuff wheels from a coaster brake into a freewheel
I remember when bmx tracks had no gate and a a flat start, and the mud puddle...tracks made their own mud puddles....(when yer 6 years old nothin was cooler)
I remember moto mag rims
seeing the first redline frame ( never owned one)
Webco
DG
my brothers old gt factory back with a small bottom bracket and a small down tube....( um 1979-1980)
And the snake bellys, the Haro number plates with the lightning bolts
