      Sup All, I just moved to SLC and am looking for a street bike. I used to ride some flatland back in the day but sold my bike to help me buy my first real car. Anyone got a 21' frame or whole bike they want to come off of for some cash? I'm really looking for a Standard STA but no one stocks it and theres a 4 week turn around time from Standard if I order one; but something kink, or S&M would do. Also are there any bike shops in the area that deal in 20' bikes? I checked out SLC bike co and a place called contenders with no success; and i'm trying to avoid Danscomp if i can. Thanks
      Performance bike parts Heather and Ian are fair at the least . tell them Scotty from TDCmotorsports sent you.
      stop talking and start working

      There are a couple bikes in Salt Lake that have some bmx stuff. Taylor's bike shop in Taylorsville and Hyland Schwinn on Highland and 3000 south (approx.) but if you want the shiz spot for bmx, go to 5050 BMX in Layton. Just look them up in on the web. Rider owned.
      They are way into freestyle while Performance is more of a racing oriented shop. Performance has a trailer at all the Rad Canyon races.
      For race info check out utahbmx.com
      Hey Alex, still have my cd's? This is my first time on here in like a year and a half.

      I have a dumb question for you guys- why on a BMX/freestyle bike is the seat always pointed up in front?

      This alows the back of the seat to be as low as possible to make sure it is out of the way for tailwhips/other tricks. Same reason the seat sits so low in the frame/top tube and seat stays are getting closer and closer to parallel (and to reduce weight)

      So, I've really gotten hooked.
      So much so, I hardly visit the vortex any more. (Have to catch Afazz's built thread, though)
      My new '87 Redline:

      My son's '95 GT Mini Mach One:

      This thing is all original, minus the rear tire.

      I'll be selling the DB soon. I'll but up a new pic when I have it all back together.

      Yup. The ones bent at the grips to supposedly fit in your hand better. Never liked them.

      Well I dont have a VW, and truthfully this bike will probably never be ridden even when I get it together.
      I think its a mongoose (based on what the seat says), its just for my booths at shows and things like that.
      Color is NEON GLO with clear starburst, and the blue is called Azure Blue.
      still have a few pieces to finish.

      Your powder coating looks good. I need to hit you up for some parts on the VR6. In BMX related content...I'm going to ride the Layton or Clearfield park tonight. Come on out!

      FBM is coming out with a bike that has the specs I want. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] 3/8" dropouts, brakes on the chainstays, mellow headtube. I emailed John Lee at FBM, and this is what he says, "I am glad you are stoked on the steadfast flip book, we have gotten a lot of positive feed back off of it, and hope people want to get out and roast something!"
      I have had a few custom bikes in my time, but I think the FBM custom program is one of the best out there. I may have to put the mk1 project on hold for a bit and build me a new BMX bike!

      Scotty, those jumps are actually from Pennsylvania. There aren't any jumps off 39th anymore, but there are some up Millcreek Canyon.

      FBM just announced they have 3/8" dropouts in house for their custom frame program, or to put on their new trails frame. This isn't really news worthy on a car blog, but I have to say, I am pumped to see a company putting 3/8" dropouts on production frames again. I have never ridden pegs, and have always had 3/8" axles with no problem...I am so stoked to get a custom frame!
