Nice a couple of my buddies had GT Performers and Pro Performers. I had a Hutch Trick Star, some other friends had Haro Masters, Schwinn Predators or Redlines.
Redline was what I wanted. I had a handmedown CW racing. I got that because I was poor and a rich friend upgraded to a Z cut CW bike.
modern day beach cruiser...
I could do some cool ass shut with this bike

This 29er reproduction rocks. I found a dealer that actually has some in stock. View attachment 1945494
That's a great idea.
When I ride the kids 20" bmx bikes they feel so small compared to what I ride now, 29+ for the most part. Grew up racing on CW Z frames then moved to freestyle on a Performer...Think my brother still has his Trick Star.

24”, 26”, and 29” BMX are popular - however, SS mountain bikes are somewhat more popular
But both big BMX and SS MTB are fairly price sensitive
indicating to me that most buyers get them extra occasional play bikes; not as primary bike

I wonder how many other out there used to just love watching Josh White be a badass on his bike.

24's are my preference for a DJ play bike personally. MTB and BMX alike...

Those are rad. 24 just makes so much sense for dirt jumps and the such. I personally think 26 dj won out due to the early MTB heritage.

I fabbed up a 24 frame for a friend that'll run the manitou junit fork. The steerer tube is a little thin which spooks me but I could always get a thicker one pressed in.
Early mockup and the finished thing waiting for cleanup and paint.

I’m refinishing my GT Bump from ‘99. Sadly the rear wheel has a decent flat spot and I’m not real keen on spending money to replace it.

20” is small, compared to my 29er MTB, but I don’t want a 29er BMX. My neighbor got a S&M COVID Cruiser 26” that is sweet.
