MISC:Frame manufacturers posted by: Jason on 7/26/2001 at 2:38:11 PM
Out of curiosity, who manufactures all these "underground" bike company frames? Like S&M, Standard, Mutiny etc. They say they are made in America so what companies are actually doing the welding? I'm curious about what it costs to get these people to manufacture some frames. I've always wanted to start my own small company although that of course won't be happening anytime soon.


   RE:MISC:Frame manufacturers posted by framebuilder on 7/28/2001 at 7:54:17 AM
S&M builds their own and also build Fit Bikes. Standards have always been built by Waterford Precision Cycles. Solid Bikes builds bikes for a slew of companies. Fab Weld in Florida builts for many companys also. A prototype frame would most like cost you anywhere from $500 to $800 and then production would from 100 frames and up. Some companies will roll the prototype cost into the cost for the whole bunch. An aluminum frame would run around $120 and chromo slightly cheaper providing the design was not too crazy when you have a run made. Go to Taiwan and you see chromo frames in the $50 dollar range and aluminum in the $60-70 range.

I need rear wheel(s) of the following variety: 20" BMX mag (Tuff Wheel or similar), freewheel threads of STEEL composition. The steel requirement is due to the fact that I need to weld the freewheel on. Real old Tuff Wheels with the star shaped hub were made of steel(hubs) before they went to an alloy composition. I need these for my delivery trike, please respond!






FOR SALE: posted by: rick on 7/23/2001 at 6:44:43 PM
Is Revcore still around?


   RE:FOR SALE: posted by Jason on 7/24/2001 at 6:38:02 AM
Nope. But during the late 80's - early 90's they merged with Hutch. That's when Hutch was forced to change their name to Hutchins. The good thing though was that Revcore was American made which meant all the new Hutch frames were American made again as well. Unfortuantely CW/Revcore/Hutch still tanked anyway. A shame too. Revcore was an excellent bike and so were the new Hutchins frames. You can read all about it here.

MISC:Say it ain't so posted by: Jason on 7/22/2001 at 5:42:29 AM
I know a guy who's kids race for Bike America. He told me today that Bike America, Schwinn and GT/Dyno (including all that GT swallowed - Powerlite, Robinson etc) was purchased by Huffy. He said he had heard that the plan was to mass market GT brand bikes (as well as Dyno and the others) in K-Mart, Wal-Mart etc. We have seen this done with Mongoose. That was terrible. And a long time ago the same thing happened with Hutch. Anybody else heard this? A while back a Bike America employee told me that the store was owned by GT/Schwinn. It would kinda' suck to find out that Huffy now has all that. Also my friend swears he saw cheap Dynos in a Wal-Mart he went to recently. He told me this and I didn't believe him and then today this guy tells me about Huffy. I was never a big fan of GT, Dyno or Schwinn but damn, being taken over by Huffy is just an ugly way to go.


   RE:MISC:Say it ain't so posted by George on 7/22/2001 at 9:04:17 PM
I agree Jason, the dynos and gt's are just such a higher quality bike than the crap you find at toys R us. Now the names will just fade into the distance such as the ones you mentioned. I'm so sick of any of these companies now, it has to be old school or I wont buy it. Now the only new bikes I will buy are from the more underground companies like Poverty, Volume Bike Co., S&M, and etc. The only prob is the cost. I can only buy one thing at a time as opposed to a whole bike. Now its frame, than rims, then brakes,bars,cranks,pedals, and the headache goes on.

   RE:MISC:Say it ain't so posted by mike on 7/23/2001 at 6:42:08 PM
I've always thought GT Dyno and even Haro and Redline were all crap.It would be nice to see them all sold at Kmart and then forgotten about.The ones that weren't as heavy as a tank,would bend like a wet noodle(redline).It's companies like those listed that cause alot of the good bike companies to go under Hutch,Pk ripper(SE)JMC,national pro The list goes on and on.Bikes mass produced in Taiwan deserve that fate.

MISC:My old bikes that no one seems to have heard of? posted by: Simon on 7/20/2001 at 4:58:55 AM
I used to race and ride BMX's in the early to mid 80's and wanted to know if I could get hold of the same bikes I used to ride, but I can't find anything about them anywhere? Has anybody heard of a fresetyle frame made by a company called Vincent, the frame was called 'Airzone' and was very similar to a D.P. Firebird Freestyle frame, but it had a tube linking the two cross tubes of the frame to the bottom tube? I also used to race a bike that I thought the frame and forks were called 'aerozytec' - I can't remember if that is spelt right or even whether it was one word? It'd be good to know anything?


   RE:MISC:My old bikes that no one seems to have heard of? posted by Chris on 10/18/2001 at 5:24:03 PM
Simon, I used to have a white vincent airzone that I got in 1985 when I lived in England. Moved to the States in 1989 and traded it for a Haro Sport (I think i got $50 for the whole bike, and it was like new). Well I wish i still had the Vincent. I believe the bikes were hand made as I was going to order one with a custom paint job but couldn't wait so I got the white one. Where these bikes in any way related to Vincent Motorcycles?? I think they were but am not sure. Please anyone with any information on Vincent Airzone BMX please E-mail myself and Simon. Thanks.

   RE:WANTED:NORCO posted by Steven on 8/25/2001 at 9:47:36 AM
Norco is a Canadian bicycle and bicycle parts distribution company. They still exist. I used to sell their products back in the late 70's and early 80's, they were generally knock-off models of mainline Kuwahara and other similar Japanese (first) and then Taiwanese bikes. Back then, they never had anything outstanding or innovative - only copies of other manufacturer's successful models.
