Ishmael, I worked at a shop that sold Burley just as the company was going under (or becoming the sad thing that it is now).   A real shame, that was a cool company, their rain gear will be missed.
I make things out of leather.

Small world. My father owns a hardware store that dabbles in all sorts of things, including bikes. He sold their trailers for a number of years. I ordered the bike through his store for a solid discount! It is indeed a sad story.....Google "The Rise and Fall of Burley Design Cooperative". A really interesting article on what was an awesome cooperative enterprise.

#3 I built myself...it's an odd one, it's sort of a tribute to fallen framebuilder Matt Chester, and it's the funnest thing on two wheels.  Rides like a fighter jet on fire roads, but it's only pretty to me.  And other Matt Chester fans.

I really like the looks of #3, it reminds me of those original hill bombing bikes from the genesis of mountain biking, and if you say it's fast and fun that's all that matters.

this is the latest incarnation of my commuter.

the frame is from a bike I found on craigslist for 60 bucks. I cleaned up the frame and put everything from the previous frame onto the new. added new brakes, thumb shifters, bottom bracket, tires, and fenders. I really like it a lot.

this is an update on my other bike. I've had these white tires on there for a while now. I'm thinking of switching back to the regular black and tan gum walls I had on my other bike.

and I'm still trying to save up to get one of these babies.



its a Swift Industries Ozette bag. SI is a great company, If you've never heard of them - check out their page - http://www.builtbyswift.com

hand made custom bags. you pick the colors. pretty cool.

I am searching in vain for a BMX for my 4 year old boy. Speaking as someone who rode BMX is the early days, like all fathers i am wanting to live my unfulfilled dreams through my son. The criteria is....
If not vintage, It has to look like BMX did in the late 70,s to early 80,s. (see example of 2005 ripper)
It has to be a proper BMX but downscaled 16" wheel (no plastic)
I am in the UK which is a problem.
I dont mind a restoration project but for my sanity it has to be complete.
I have searched brands that i can remember just inserting the word "mini" Skyway, Kuwahara, Moto one, Haro ect.
Any suggestions?
This mini PK Ripper would be perfect.

None unfortunately, you'll just have to scan ebay and gumtree like me (my boy is six).  Some of the BMX mags available have good local finds in their classifieds.  I had a Kuwahara (circa '83) and sometimes search for original bikes.  Want an original condition Pro-burner for some reason?  That mini Ripper is nice.
