Bombing.

January 15, 2010

Bomb Hills Speed Kills just posted a great write up on ‘The death of the hill bomber’ due to the great rise in popularity of the freestyle trick rider.

I think its because hill bombing is assumed to be an activity calling for little to no skill and therefore, doesn’t have that wow factor. but regardless of that notion, hill bombing is still exhilarating no matter what kind of fixed gear the bombing takes place on. risers, and the low gear ratio of a fixed freestyle machine- not all is lost. as long as there are no brakes and there are fixed cogs, bombing has purpose.

Well worth a read and I for one agree, hell it is why I got into this sort of riding in the first place!

Seen at Leeds Fixed via BHSK.
Jmik – Loving your work BTW.

Max Air.

A friend of a work colleague passed by the store last weekend on this: A Rad as hell 1985 Skyway Streetbeat.
RAD 011
They said at the time: Forget the ordinary with Street Beat, Skyway’s new full-on freestyle machine. It’s light enough to grab max air, and strong enough to beat the street. “Max Air” ! how times have changed, you would sound a complete idiot spouting that lingo today for sure.

Peep all of the excessive tubing though compared to todays basic utilitarian ‘Freestyle’ bikes… Nowadays BMX bikes look like scooters with pedals on and this thing looks like a spaceship with wheels on… I love it.
