It was great entertainment. Now everyone can give Hoffman the props he deserves. When the bike companies that many of you scorn now, died because they didn't sell road bikes to yuppies driving Audi 5000 in the late 80's. This dude carried the torch through the dark ages. I remember feeling to old to be riding my Redline with Thruster handle bars, Oakley grips, DK neck, Z rims, Sugino cranks, snake belly tires in the 90's, man that was one sweet ride. I remember when every wooded area I road BMX was being plowed over to build more developments and the no biking and skateboarding signs sprung up everywhere. I don't think there is any denying that much of what mountain biking is today is linked to BMX fused with motocross. If not for Hoffman we all may still be in spandex. So when I see a Mongoose, GT, Haro, Diamondback and maybe someday a Predator, Stormer,Thruster, Skyway or Hutch; I don't think second rate machine. I think, those bike show me it was possible to fly.
