Thruster makes a comeback…sort of

15 02 2019

Just as the West Coast CABDA show brought some new cruisers for our perusal…the CABDA Midwest show has brought something new (or is it old?) for us to ponder and reflect on.

Case in point, the reappearance of an early BMX brand with a — some would say — iconic frame design.

If you haven’t been tipped off already, I’m talking about Thruster BMX.

But don’t get too excited.

If the early reviews on this new version of the brand are any indication, it looks like this brand’s “reinvention” leaves much to be desired.

Check out what Chris Moeller (of S&M) had to say:

Or industry veteran Scott Towne’s take on it:

A bit sad, considering what could have been…if this was made in to more of serious cruiser (vs. a dressed up beach cruiser).

Oh well, we’ll always have those old school memories…won’t we?
