Tony Hawk Huckjam Frisco (2010)

Postby BIGDCYCLES » Mon Oct 20, 2014 5:07 pm

Wondering if anyone has any experience with these? What am I going to immediately break? It has double wall 48 spoke aluminum wheels, 14g spokes, steel three piece cranks, freewheel rear hub, pro max brakes front and rear. Anyone know what the frame, fork, and bar material are? I'm asking because I picked one up at the local DAV thrift store, I just could not resist it calling me and bringing back memories of my younger self bombing around on a BMX. It is in decent shape, needs maintenance but should be ride worthy pretty quickly. The dirt jumps down the road are calling my name, as is the street park. Broken bones here I come!

The frame, fork, and bars are hi-tensile or mild steel which is not good for more advanced stuff. I would have reservations about going off any big jumps or ramps or doing any grinds. What will you break? I'd be most concerned about the fork #1, bars #2. If you want to learn grinds I'd worry about the rear dropouts depending on the thickness and the axles.

Looks like this one will just be one to cruise around, do wheelies and manuals and just get me used to BMX again until I can get something nicer or upgrage a bunch of parts.

Have you ever checked bmxmuseum. You can find deals from time to time. Profile or Redline cranks. Some good wheels with 14mm axles. Good CroMo frames, bars and forks and such. Old school and new school.

I will have to check that out, have a buddy one town over with a huge stash of old school parts from the 70s to the 90s.

Did ride it last night after shortening the chain and slamming the rear as far forward as possible in the dropouts. Pretty decent riding little bike.

I'm a member at bmxmuseum.com and I second going there if you're serious about getting a decent frame. You can get a good deal on a late 90s frame.
