      My bmx background goes waaaaay back then I went to dirtbikes then back to bmx in my early 40s taking my kids to race for couple seasons. Still a couple of bmx bikes in the house but I dont ride  them anymore. Pretty much a gateway to mtb  riding and man am I glad they started making mountain bikes because I loved riding bmx. I still toy around on my park bike but its part of me that is consumed with mtb riding now. My kids just figure I’ll never grow up, jumping, wheelies, CRASHES all part of feeling alive and having fun

      Bought my roscoe 8 in 2018  but is a 2019 model.  They’ve made some nice changes since  I bought mine. Great bike you’ll love it.

      I had a first gen Diamondback, from a time when the company was operated by its founder. Loved the hell outta that bike and the original dirt tracks that we rode on. Classic tires, snake belly and Comp III’s were all the rage at the time. 1977 was the first year for Diamondback.  Good time in life having that new bike smell and racing BMX!

      I had the smoked DB turbo with Araya7x’s but it got stolen, lol I’ve learned to watch my bikes like a hawk from an early age after that lol

      Damn, the amazingly nice stuff in that era was awesome. Occasionally I have a look on BMX Museum’s website and reminisce. Good times during the early BMX years. Didn’t pay much attention to the rebar bikes, just those that were in the races I participated in. So much kewl innovation and imagination was at work.
