I might have to ship some bikes out from Indy at my parents. Old Diamond Back 4130 Viper from the 80's, that ones beat to shit. The other is a 1998 Trek Subculture SS. Yeah, I know a trek, but it was the last all round Easton american made tubing before all of the Tiawan fat, ugly ass, aero tubing bikes, like the Y-frame.
Yeah Sorry homie. I had to spend some time with the lady. Ill be at the next one. Hey Also I put all the pics and the video i made on a disk 4 you. Ill get it to you ASAP. I hope you saw it on youtube.

I read somewhere on one of rev's listings or postings that bmx bikes for rev's rides were mostly 24" and larger wheels and that 20" wheels are good too if you have the legs to keep up....so help me understand....i wanna come out and i have a mid to late 90's haro dave mira (i think). do a lot of 20" bmx's come out? how fast do you guys go on flat? my bike's not extremely fast...
yeah you'll be fine on your 20" mane!! just a couple small hills. orher than that its mostly down hill. there were lots of dudes riding 20's at the last ride. vintage ones at that... so you good chromie!! bring your peeps too!! let's roll deep!! let me know if you have any questions...
wow!!!!! we did it fellas!! too many riders to count. dudes that tried were coming back with numbers like 80+,90+!! once again, all BMX'rs mane!! Greg Hill was in attendence... let me say that one more time... Da G Ryd brought out Greg Hill!! Dude was as cool as a fan!! we also had a group of chromies from san deigo... thats right, dudes cruised up from san deigo rolling some dope bikes, the inland empire too. i saw a boss and a powerlite... cant forget the VDC among others!! we had sourrox, a subway series vet. go down hard on the 6th street down hill, but lived to tell about it. relic was reppin "the circle of trust on his gjs." it was crazy!! we friggin' owned the streets of L.A!! corkin' intersections, sidewalk surfing, gridlock wheelies!! we did it all!! and we're going to do it again next month!!
Thanks to everyone who showed up!! EVERY LAST PERSON!! riding with you folks was something i'll never forget!!
Yo lastnight was the shit! It was cool to All the Chromies there. Rev much props thank coming through on the KOS, The Mongoose 2-4!!! What? You just dont bikes of this caliber everyday. Dudes BOSS was one of the cleanest i've seen in person. Custom padsets, powdercoated,Chromed,Anodized, this was a true BMX event. To the Chromies from BARCHOPZ it was good to you fellas. We will be at the next BARCHOPZ 4sho! Thanks to Dave from Maimi, we will hit you up anytime we ride Chromey.
That was fun, personally I'd like to ride more and stop less but I guess it can't be helped with 90+ bmx riders that we'll have a few mechanicals. Great job guys, only your second run and the pack nearly doubled! Summer time will be chaos for sure.
yo rode tonight with the dudes from atomic cycles in van nuys... it was a cool time... some valley-kid flatlanders came out and repp'd hard... especially the dude on the green bike.. cool young cats... thanks rev, you'll see the mayor at more of these rides mane!!

BOOGZ AND I HAVE TWEAKED THE ROUTE ABIT AND I'M SURE IT'LL BE A BIG HIT!! TRUST ME, I SWEAR!! AGAIN TOMORROWS BEACH RIDE WILL NOT HAPPEND DUE TO THE 90% CHANCE OF RAIN!! STAY TUNED!!**
haha!! just put it like this... we wait for all bmx'rs.... fat, bloated or filthy...lol don't worry rev.. this time we'll leave sooner.. no matter whos late. i know youre a busy man with an early bedtime, and i appreciate your patience....
3. arrive early!! since the meeting spot is in hollywood, traffic can always be a problem. avoid the rush and arrive early. there's tons to do.. grab a bite or a drink, check the crazy stores, watch the freaks, meet chicks, Just please don't be late!! i caught a ton of slack at the last ride for waiting on riders.
4. bring lights for your bike, if you have them.
5. bring a bike lock, you never know if you'll want to stop in somewhere.
6. WATCH FOR CARS AND BE SAFE ON THE RIDE!! we dont want to see anyone hurt...
7. bring some money for the subway. $1.25 per ride.
8. bring all your chromies!! this ride is better the bigger it gets!! by summertime we're hoping for 150-200+ bmx'rs. so spread the word!!
9. last but not least.. HAVE FUN!! these rides are our "time to shine" so come out and enjoy!! plus, the dudes in this hobby are the coolest!!
well fellas guess what?!! tonight i went over and met da g ryd and relic at greg hill's racing clinic in whittier. what an experience!! i didnt ride due to an injury but got to see what was going down and guess what?!! i totally recomend this clinic to all interested. tonight they were working on flying out the gates. and i'll tell you this, getting racing tips from a legend is awesome. made me think of when i got to go to the michael cooper basketbal camp as a kid. you better believe you'll catch me at these clinics in the future!! i can use them... hope to catch some of you chromies there too!! here's the info!!
plus i hear gregs having an "old school day" for us more sophisicated dudes on april 3rd. stay tuned for that. but untill then, we have a subway series to ride mane!!
ohh... and mr greg hill will be at the ride saturday night... +2
A DAY AT THE TRACK WITH GREG HILL!! COME ONE, COME ALL!!
from Greg hill's post on the bmxmuseum.com;
Here is the scoop..
Whittier Narrows BMX Park , go to www.ababmx.com and look up tracks and you will be able to get the details for how to get there.
10am to 1pm Old School clinic taught by me, Greg Hill..It's 20 bucks and the proceeds will go to the track, not me..We will cover everything we can in 3 hours and have fun doing it..
Bring your old bikes, there will be plenty of room to set up the tent and show your stuff, we would like that very much if whoever comes out can display their old rides..
There is an open BBQ and the idea is bring it and grill it..We'll have lunch after the clinic, bring your own food, cook it on the BBQ and then chill, bench race, trade parts, tell lies whatever works lol ..The track will be open to ride, practice and racing in the later afternoon so we can make a day out of it..
I'm in, who else is down to ride??? Eat some food, drink a beer or 2, bench race just simply have a good day at the track..
That is the scoop, if you have questions just ask them in this thread and that way everyone can keep up with what's going on...
I would like to invite everyone who rides in the 4130 Subway Series Hollywood ride, you guy's are great to ride with, come out and check it out along with anyone else..
what an incredible day at the track with Da Hillage, Da G Ryd and all you ridazz!! i'm stuffed!! damn miguel... that bbq grill was insane!! did the trick like woody on a trickstar mane!! and to anyone who's thinking of taking some of Greg hill's clinics... dude's the phil jackson of BMX coaching!! trust me, i swear!! would you expect any less from a supa legend?!! i saw my buddies improve more in a few hours with greg than months on the track solo... you WILL catch me in whittier at these clinics in the future... relic you in next wednesday? and yo OC Dave, thanks for letting me test spin the DG around... i might need to sell the ranch to get one...
