Paul’s Site is up it looks Awesome!!!!
I’m not into the fixed gears, so don’t think i’m trying to hop on this or anything. This place just looks amazing and somewhere that would be a great place to start, just in case I was interested in getting into it. It takes me back to Christmas ’87 when my parents bought me the turquoise GT Performer. I wish I still had that thing. I would love to work on some BMX bikes these days, if they would only make the frames bigger for dudes who just wanna cruise by the beach flossing some Skyway mags.

Vans is really killing it right now. Another great video for the new collection.
If you’ve been following us on Twitter, you’ve probably noticed that i’ve been tweeting a lot of BMX pics over the Summer. I picked up a nice 85 Mongoose off a guy in Jersey this past June, and have since been researching the stuff a little more. I was never that into BMX racing or freestyling, but have always enjoyed the aesthetic and just plain riding a bike. I remember back in the early 80′s, every cool kid having feathered hair, a bad moustache and a sweet BMX. I would get on mine and follow my cousin up to the arcade on Springfield Avenue to play Donkey Kong, while watching out for the kids hanging out there (at my Grandma’s request).
Since getting this new bike this Summer, I’ve been doing some research and trying to put some of my own bikes together. The only thing that sucks is that these things are 20″ and hard for an adult to ride. The best part is all the options for customization. I wish these companies would get on the ball and retro some of these bikes in 24 or 26. Check after the break for some of the dopest i’ve seen in my research. Most pics from BMX Museum.
