It was only a matter of time before Skyway started to make the rare 24" cruiser that was around in the 80s. This is is all new, with threadless forks, V-brake mounts and modern geometry. Made of 4130 chromoly, this is one sexy looking cruiser. Check out the website above for more details as this cruiser is a prototype. Skyway is back!

I have always said that there is an alternative to the fail-without-warning carbon-fibre forks that are so prevalent on BMX race bikes nowadays. Another one worth looking at are these Supercross BMX SLT forks. Unlike carbon fibre, these are made of chromoly so they will not snap without warning and are lighter than an equivalent carbon-fibre fork. I do not have a race BMX anymore but when I did, I was running the Odyssey Thermal 41 race forks that were strong as anything. If I had a race bike, I would get these.

Elevn Technologies for example. I have heard that it is the same people that make the Supercross BMX chromoly forks that make these forks. Supercross forks are another one that I will gladly recommend. So get these forks for piece of mind.

Came across this web-site the other day and I must say that the person who started it has almost everything there is to be about the Perry Kramer Ripper or better known as the PK Ripper. It has a a very apt name too, PK Ripper Heaven. Check out the website if you want to know all about the bike that changed the whole BMX industry.

Someone called my attention to this video because he knew that I used to ride a DK BMX bike in the past. Looks like this DK bike broke into three pieces at a racetrack in Australia. All I can say is: holy crap! I think back to the days when Robbie Miranda jumped ten cars on a DK Legend (the very same bike I used) and the frame was intact. DK seriously needs to look at this as it seems to be some kind of manufacturing defect
