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 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?

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.

Why does every frame have seatstays that meet toptubes?

Probably helps with the spacing for these stupid wide tyres people have nowadays.

It's a grand conspiracy to make T1s even more radballs.

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.

Er, Kevin Beercan I believe. He has a lovely voice but a bit feminine tbh. Is there anything that man can not do?
