Thursday Throwback

02 Jun

The back in the day BMX bikes. Whether it was Dyno Air, Dyno Compe, GT Vertigo, GT Performance, or even a Mongoose, everyone was whipping around on one. Everyone was asking for one of these types of bikes for birthdays and Christmas every year. I remember taking chromies off of cars and putting them on my bike, chromies were awesome. If you were really balling back then, you had 8 Balls, Skulls, or Dice on your valve stems to really pimp out your bike. Then if you were Really Really balling you had both the front and back pegs, like I did. Looking back on this, that was silly of me because I couldn’t do any tricks or grind with the pegs but instead was always stuck pegging people. It always seemed that the heavy kids always needed to be pegged around town on half days and after school. Pegging people was the absolute worst, especially the double peg, one on back pegs, and one on front pegs. What kind of bike did you have back in the day? We want to hear from you.

    I rocked out on a GT Interceptor back in the day. No gyro but more of a BMX Racing bike. Turned to this after my green and black splash Veritigo got stolen from the park.
