I thought it was pretty funny seeing how much the sport changed.

I've never once commented on seat height, unless maybie i was giving someone a hard time for the hell of it. The seat should be where your comfortable with it. I like mine low becuase When I had like 4"s of post sticking up below the seat I did a good sized drop to flat and while absorbing the shock with my legs I bounced my uhhh marbles off the seat. So now I cut off my seat post to about 3/4" long

That was awesome. Started riding BMX in 1976 on one of these, a Graco full suspension


Replaced it with a Webco, redline forks, cook brothers neck, set of skyways and a set of arayas



Neither of the bikes pictured are mine. I have no pictures of any sort of the Graco and only one non digital picture of the Webco.

The videos brought back some great memories. Thanks to the OP!

That video was great. I wonder how different BMX is going to be in 20 years, if it'll even still be around.

Frontflips will be the new x-ups.
