Title: Interbike 2016
Post by: JFax on September 22, 2016, 02:06:07 AM
It is here. Galleries are popping up on some sites, for example ride bmx. Discuss!

I saw the new United Rooftop sig. frame. Not sure if this is a joke or not.

Rooftop moves from bike company to company putting out a bashguard frame, no one buys them.

I had a Haro Sport in the early 90's and I'd love to have another bashguard frame, even if it serves me no purpose at all.
I'd like to see what Erik Elstran could do with this.

Those huge fit logos on the t1 tyres are fucking vile.

But I think the new frame colours by wethepeople are dope.

subrosa slayer completes, i feel that a branded complete bike is like the least metal way you could show love for slayer in bmx. its the kind of branding youd expect kiss to get on board with

yeah ok

bmx trends are boring these days and bmx companies are weird. no innovation, just everyone trying to sell the same shit. stupid colours are back in but mostly for tyres, and the most interesting stuff going on is companies cashing in on nostalgia.

Someone needs to produce some high end tires instead of all these new colors that keep outdoing themselves in terms of how awful they look.

Wraps can be ok when done tastefully like on that white frame or on that Profile hub but fucking stop it with the damn tires.


I'm with big ben, what the fuck happened to Fit?


That blue WTP cruiser looks like it'd be fun to rip around on at the local woods but why the fuck would they give it a 1 inch threaded head tube?

Did you just handpick the grossest stuff ben? Some disgusting bits and pieces on display.

One interesting development is that both DK and Fit are making 22" completes (along with United). I'm going to see if I can try out a KF22 somewhere, wish they were closer to 500 than 700 though.

BMX just doesn't change too much. I've still got my Sunday 2nd Wave and it's a completely relevant bike, even though its like 8 years old.

Post by: montymitch on September 26, 2016, 07:44:10 AM
 It looks like it might just be an illusion since the peg is cut flat and the bolt is partially obscuring it due to the angle of view.
Title: Re: Interbike 2016
Post by: dude... on September 27, 2016, 05:11:39 AM
nah i bet its just a shitty clone part and they didnt even think about whether the inside of the peg should be flat because theyre too busy trying to make their stupid crank design a thing

Regardless of what you think of their designs, that company is one of the few companies that actually tries something different and tweaks the standard parts. I like to see that more than pro rider colourway tyres or whatever.

So everyone agree inter bike was a waste of time for BMX this year?

Colored tires and the same prototype crank design that's been at the last four or five interbikes

Nothing new nothing interesting

That's kind of a shame, I genuinely thought that there was just hardly any parts coming out anymore as it was pretty on it, but it did sort of kill the 'bike shop' forum in here.

Hope this means a revival for here.

That's just the worst, really. They kept it because "heritage" I guess, and then they spec V-brakes?  Hopefully you never have to replace the damn gooseneck. Can you still buy new 1" quill BMX stems? There's so much more inch and an eighth shit out there. They had to go to extra hassle to make it so much worse.

Seems like the bmx innovation period is over and it's now just colour variations taking over. Probably the reason why the new old school stuff is making a comeback, led by Haro. John is doing good things there and my Facebook is on fire with Haro pictures these days.

This is 100% right, IMO. BMX bikes now days are rock solid and about as simple as you can get. Yes, some new innovative products will be produced in the future, but for the most part BMX product innovation is done. The fact that there are too many BMX companies, manufacturing parts, out of the same factory's in Taiwan, will force many companies to go away. I don't think its going to be sustainable for many companies, and i believe a lot will be gone in the coming years. Haro is defiantly doing well by knocking on the hearts of the first generation of BMX enthusiasts. But its isn't sustainable either. I don't know a damn kid who wanted to ride a Haro from the mid 90's and newer. What then? The money that Haro is making off this old school trend, needs to be put back into BMX, but I know this will never happen, Haro is owned by a conglomerate that doesn't give two shits about BMX.
IMO the companies still alive today, need to pull away from the product and put into getting kids stoked on what BMX is about. How this is accomplished? Who fucking knows.

Where have all the good men gone and where are all the Gods? Where's the street-wise Hercules to fight the rising odds? Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed? Late at night I toss and I turn and I dream of what I need. I need a hero, I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night. He's gotta be strong and he's gotta be fast and he's gotta be fresh from the fight.
