And the Matt Hoffman thing was on his orange Haro Master with a bashguard, like this one.

When he was on MTV sports he was riding for his new company, Hoffman Bikes.

PK Ripper was WAAAYYY back... I think his was white and had SWATCH stickers on it!!!!
Ah OK. BTW, I'm pretty sure he had a few PK Rippers, because he'd break them so easily.

You're probably right. I remember one with SWATCH stickers for some reason. Maybe it's because I really wanted a SWATCH, with a cool neon colored Swatch Guard.

I think the first to run on the ramp after that trick was Dino DeLuca. I could be wrong though.

BMX back then was awesome. Very gimmicky for awhile, but there weren't as many trends. There were too many different styles of bikes and parts out to be trendy. It seems like everybody had something different.

My favourite period of BMX was the early 90's. It was at it's least popular, but that was good in a way, people rode cause we loved the sport. We refused to believe the hype that BMX was dead. How could BMX be dead if we still rode our bikes? We fought back, to the greater benefit of our beloved sport. That's BMX at it's most grass-roots, ladies & gentlemen.

And oddly enouhg, the early 90's is when I got into riding. I liked that it wasn't the least bit mainstream, almost like my bro, buddies, and me were the only ones in the world doing it. It was our thing. That was the time when all the gimmicky stuff had filtered out, and it was left to the true heart and soul riders. It fit me, for some reason. And I'm still doing it today!

No, it really happened, it was just a LONG time ago.

Threads about oldschool biking started way back. then they went away. Then they came back again, and everybody thought they were new and hip, when in fact they had been around before. It's just that all the new-schoolers were too young to remember.
The same holds true with tabletops, turndowns(lookdowns), tire grabs, tuck no-handers, lawnmowers, big bars, bandanas as cable ties, and landing fakie from, well, EVERYTHING.

Scott Powell, McGoo & Ice Money :>
post #55 of 175
Ha, I still see Scott Powell all the time, at Chenga 2. (He's partner/owner)

He still rips. I think he's better today than he ever has been, even though he hasn't been riding too much lately due to building the new park.

McGoo and Ice Money. Nice.

What about Dennis McCoy doing flatland. He was insanely good for his time.

I remember him more for his letters to BMX Plus! than his riding, but good to hear he's still supportin' the sport.

I liked how he took it to the ramps, abubuca to decade etc. Funny how back in the day, a lot of pros rode flat as well as the other disciplines. DMC, Jay Miron, hell even Rick Moliterno.

I wonder what Bob Kohl does these days? Koji Kraft reminds me of him, with all the slams and near-slams, maybe he coaches him? :>
post #57 of 175
Ha!! Bob Kohl!!! He was good. I liked him.

I used to ride flatland all the time, still do on occasion. I'm working on tailtaps to decade on ramps. I'm representing McCoy/Miron. I'll post video when I do one, but it might be a few months!

It wasn't mine, but the first BMX bike I fooled around on was my cousin's All chrome GT, with a seat so high I couldn't put my feet down, pads everywhere, Lee-Chi brakes, and those folding Odyssey pegs that clamped to the fork leg. I really wish he hadn't sold that thing, I would love to have it now.

I remember back in the 80's Dyno had a stem (also called back in the day a gooseneck) with an intergrated gyro system. I can't remember it's name, does anyone know it
