Hey, I have just bought a 2002 DK SOB, it is pretty heavy, but seems pretty well built and strong.
I paid ¥10,000 which is like $93USD or 51 quid. Which I think is pretty damn cheap.
It's pretty much all stock as far as I can tell the rear wheel needs to be adjusted because the chain is a little lose but it's pretty much in tip top condition. (i only just bought it tonight!) But... has an odyssey gyro brake cable.... 'thing'. *ashamed*
Sorry for not being very tech, but as far as bmx, I am a newb, unless 20 years ago an old black and gold Raleigh BMX counts???!!!? My history is more MTB (5k S-works Enduro) and some Tarck bike stuff for city riding.
I want to know if i should keep the gyro or strip it out? I don't think I will be doing bar spins, I will be taking the bike out to the skate park to hit the ramps. Also as being as it is all pretty stock (i think it is on the original brake pads and tires even!) Should I be thinking of swapping anything out? The rear brake feels like a wet sponge with the power of a flannel, but i guess new pads will solve that, admittedly I am used to 8" Hayes hydraulic brakes, which have more power than sense (until you are flying down a mountain that is)
