You know it.

I just finished a 1995 Hoffman Big Daddy and it came in at 35 pounds.

Of course it had the following...gyro, 2 brakes, 4 pegs, 48's with a freecoaster, 44/16.

Solid as efff.

I still roll on 48's too! A little heavy, but feels so solid. And my bike is only like 21-22 lbs. With my still ****ty frame too. God I need to update my BMX bike a bit

One of these things is not like the others. (says the guy who's posted his BMX in the MTB forum.)

Guess that's one way to keep dirt from clumping on your tire. And, I want your pedals.

Does anyone else use their BMX as a commuter/fitness bike?

Yes. And, I really need to get a photo of my old RL 440, that I use for riding around roads in the area.

Glad to see, I'm not the only dork with seat way up, and seat pack on a BMX.

After getting a flat 4 miles from my house I gave in and started carrying the seat pack with a tire repair kit in it. It was against my will though!

In the race world people generally don't slam their seats. In the freestyle world the main reason the seats are so low is for tricks, not comfort.
