    Roadie here.....

    Anyone here old enough to remember Stu Thompson? Has my idol back when I was a young. Me, my Vans, OP shorts and my Redline BMX racer. Whipper snappers!

    Yeah, and Bob Haro was still a kid racing, not a brand. By the way, you had to have the Lightning Bolt shirt to go with the OP shorts. Feel free to search the BMX threads, and bump open the old school ones if you've got anything to add.

    I remember Stu Hamm, Bass player. hehe I'm new roadie. Just went from my Cannondale MTN bike with raod tires to a Cannondale road bike. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. The rides faster. And I find that I feel compelled to NOT pace myself like I was. I've been riding my MTN bike for 10 years, so it's quite a difference in geometry and feel. Plus, going form a sweet energy robbing suspention fork to 120lb tires is a different feel too. But with fall here and winter coming, I'll likely not have my nice road bike out as much, and will be on the MTN bike in bad weather. But at least I try to pedal something everyday.

    I remember when Stu Hamm wasn't Stu Hamm...he was just 'Joe Satriani's bass player'.

    Wow, thats a nice collection of axes. I have on old Gibson SG from my college days.

    Anyways. I am trying rehab my old cro moly redline. I even have most of the old California Lite pads from the bike. Missing the stem pad though, and I need a chain. Bmxers don't seem to use pads anymore do they?

    You need pads for racing, other than that, no.

    The only thing that bike is worth fixing up for nowadays is nostalgic value. Typically for what it costs to bring old BMX bikes back to life you're almost looking at new bike prices. And an old bike is not going to be near as strong or as cheap to fix as a new one, so if you plan on abusing it, that's something to keep in mind.

    Pad are for your safety. I'm not sure it matter what you're doing. But I'd think a neck pad wouldn't be an option for any sane guy.


    Stu Hamm is amazing. I've seen Satch a few times, and everyone goes nuts for Stu's solo's.

    Well, I guess that that makes most every rider out there totally insane.

    Insane may be a bit harsh, but unwise would do. I just remember stories of guys that hit the neck when I was young. It wasn't pretty. They may be childless today.....

    A bit of padding isn't going to protect them much on impact. Especially the padding on today's bikes. I've got 4 kids, so the doctor has already "Fixed" that problem for me.

    Yeah, but now I don't have to be so careful about where I point it. At least, before I was married anyway.

    Yep. But I need to make the jump bigger. And a bit steeper. I was reading about jump building and they said to make the take off almost straight up. It sounds crazy to me, but I think that's what I need to do.

    The first jump at our track is nose-bleed steep. Go have a look, it's in the "Aussie BMX photos" thread.

    Yeah, the first jump is actually a bit taller, and at least as steep. I thought I'd flip over backwards going up the first time. Nothing like what we had 20+ years ago.

    '1st layered' is great

    We're not talking about the one in the foreground - it's the one in the 2nd straight on the track, that launches you over the triples. It's very steep when you consider that guys hit 30km on that straight. And it feels a lot steeper on a cruiser. By the way, I do more trail riding than racing.
