I remember being excited to hear that Odyssey was gonna make a 4 piece bar but then those 4x4 came out and they are the ugliest 4 piece bars ever made in my opinion.

really? I thought they looked cool. I have a set of those laying around my apartment.

So what's up with the skapegoat bars? I can't find their website, or anything about them really.

Apparently Hoffman doesn't have an Aussie distro so I'll be ordering some low drags through empire when I have some money

Paranoid these might be up your alley. Got the small bottom piece like the Odyssey 4x4 and Hoffman Low Drags.

newer hoffman bars on the front page of empire right now...

Quote
8.75Ē rise
30Ē width
6į backsweep
3į upsweep
material: 4130 cromo
made in USA

I got some sort of mongoose from the dump a few weeks ago with big chrome powerbend bars and primo logo grips... psyched.




also, why have I not seen anybody else mention mat breaking his old height record, on a 30ft ramp, in 2015?



Quote
...I started playing around on Big Ramps again. I rode one in March at the Old School get together at Woodward West in Tehachapi, CA. I was pushing 20 feet comfortably and felt I could go higher than I had before. There were a lot of people around and I knew I needed to do this just for myself to get the focus needed. I had been in the ER many times recently, so I second-guessed myself and walked away to prove I could and to give it more consideration. It kept burning bright, so I decided itís in me and I had to let it come out.

Iíve been riding a lot but also flying wingsuits, which I think has helped me cross train by harnessing aggressive energy better, become one with it and flow, like the big ramp demands. Painting more has helped sharpen my focus too, plus Iím 43 years old (the holy grail of BMX or so we claim), so I decided I was mentally ready to take on the challenge.

Danny Way talked to me earlier in 2015 about designing a ramp to get more air. He wanted to go so high nobody would want to step to it. So he built this ramp (30 feet tall), kept it a secret and was ready to test it out this past May. At the same time, I had committed to push my limits on these big ramps again too, so the timing was perfectÖ he invited me out for the test ride.

I went out there and had a private session. I set up some unmanned cameras and filmed the whole session(s), which Iíll show later this year. I was able to break my past record. This sketchy pic was one I shot of a camera screen from one of Dannyís friends who captured it at my first session. Itís definitely not print quality but I liked how the style was so much like the original air I did on my original Big Air ramp in 1991, but higher.

Itís now been 25 years since I made a bike I could trust my life with going bigger than ever before. Let my life be an example to never give up, follow your heart and do what you want no matter how many times youíve been knocked down and people tell you youíre crazy or itís impossible. Keep getting up and keep your dreams alive. Keep your game true to your heart and push your lifeís passions and skills, no matter how ridiculous they may seem to others. Always following your dreams to wherever they leadÖ.

Love Life and make your dreams happen, no matter what! This is what 25 years of Hoffman Bikes is about to me. I was 18 when I set my first high air record. I had to build a bike I could trust my life with to achieve this. Now Iím 43 and I still make a bike that can back my dreams no matter how big they goÖ.

Go Anywhere, Do Anything! Hoffman Bikes 25 years Strong!

Peace, Love, BMX Ė Letís have fun in 2016!

my first 'real' bike was a hoffman george deluxe, george was mat's cat I think?

28.5 X 9" or so, might be a bit taller/shorter, but it's right about 9. I don't know about using them for tricks and stuff, but just wheeling them around they feel really good.
