Limited edition Redline Cup frames

14 03 2010

Well, here’s an awesome incentive to race the Redline Cup series this year:

The chance to win one of 70 one-of-a-kind limited edition frames from Redline!

According to Redline:

While it is up to each track operator’s discretion on how they will be given away, the custom black & gold Flight frames will likely be raffled off to one lucky winner during the RL Cup race – with proceeds being used to fund improvements for each BMX track.

The colors are inspired by both the 1966 Shelby Hertz Mustang Fastback and the Gold Cup series of the ’80s. They come in two sizes: Expert XL and Pro Cruiser (pictured).

In addition to the custom black and gold colors, you also get the 2010 Redline Cup logo clear-coated on each side of the top tube.

These cool frames are going to be collectors items, so good luck to everyone following the Redline Cup series. If you’re lucky/fast enough to score one you’ll definitely have one of the coolest looking rides at the track.

Another cruiser convert…

30 01 2010

Spotted a great thread on VintageBMX.com yesterday called I rode a cruiser tonight at the track…and it was fun! written by a guy that usually rides only a 20″.

Sounds like he’s seen the light:

I rode my friend’s cruiser just to get some laps in. Well I ended up riding it all night. I absolutely loved every second of it. Jumps smooth, manuals soooo easy. I was just totally in love.

I had a similar experience…after riding a 20″ for most of my BMX “career”, I visited a BMX track while staying with my girlfriend’s family and was lent a Haro 24  to take a couple laps. It felt amazing and couldn’t believe what I had been missing…it’s been cruisers for me ever since.

If you’re reading this site you’re probably already a convert but it’s still nice to see people showing some love to cruisers on other sites too.  The VintageBMX.com thread is currently up to 3 pages, so check it out and join the conversation. Spread the word…Cruisers rock!

One of the people participating in the thread, BS, also posted a picture of himself taking care of business as part of the discussion. Love it because it reminds of lazy summer afternoon trails sessions…nice!





Carbon’s footprint

8 09 2009

The guy behind this number plate has BMX in his blood. He’s just as likely to sell you a cool t-shirt, crack a joke or go spend his vacation helping a community build a BMX track. If you spend any time racing  in Southern Ontario you know who this plate belongs to. One of the good guys in BMX, Carbon’s footprint in Ontario’s race scene is huge.

Carbon’s also got a real flair for sticker placement.
