MISC:   Death Of A Legend!!! posted by: Romero on 2/18/2001 at 7:30:56 PM
I know this has nothing to do with Old Skool Bmx, it was important enough to announce anyway. NASCAR Legend Dale Earnhardt was killed in todays Daytna 500. NASCAR's new rules & aero package surely was the culprit in the death of perhaps the greatest man to ever strap into a Winston Cup car. Even if I were not a NASCAR fan, this would still hit hard. He was the equilvalent of Michael Jordan, or Matt Hoffman, he was NASCAR's best. Dale Earnhardt, 1951-2000.

I'm from South Carolina & I've followed NASCAR closely for the last 12 years. Anyone who watches NASCAR racing knows that the Carolinas, North & South, are the Capitol of NASCAR racing & a region of the U.S. where Dale Earnhardt was ruler. Every shopping center or major Mall down here has some sort of NASCAR outlet that sells Earnhardt merchandise. Immediately upon hearing of his passing, just like Michael said, everyone in my neighborhood, in my area as a whole was crushed. There were tears & will be more to come. It just won't be the same next week when he's not there. This man was our hero. How do we cope? We all have to move on because thats what Dale would want.

My family has close ties to NASCAR. (The now departed Allison boys, David and Clifford, were named after my uncles). I'm 29 and have followed NASCAR forever. Although I have despised D.E. many times (75 wins & 7 championships)for beating up on one of my Ford teams, I always recognized and respected his God given abilities and desire to be the best. D.E. had truly filled Petty's position as the reigning King of Winston Cup racing. I watched the race yesterday; the pre-show featured D.E. hanging around Daytona with Terry Bradshaw(Bradshaw almost seemed star struck by D.E.; A guy with multiple Superbowl rings was like a giddy little girl in D.E.'s presence!) I was thinking at the time, D.E. is the mack! A true BAD ASS! He seemed to be on top of the world. The news last night was sickening and sad. It didn't seem real. D.E. was truly a living legend and hero in his own time. A national treasure.FEARLESS!! NASCAR won't be the same without #3 scraping paint off some fenders and bumpers. God Bless Dale and be with his family.

You guys aren't gonna believe this, but some LOSER who i'll leave nameless ACTUALLY EMAILED ME BASHING DALE EARNHARDT. He said Dale was not even close to the greatness of other atheletes like Jordan & Gretzky. He seems to think Dale finaly got what was coming to him. That individual is obviuosly not a true race fan. If he were to say that in a Mall or 7 Eleven anywhere in North or South Carolina, they'd have to pry him outta da Icee machine. Does anyone know who Ron Wilkerson worked for before he worked for Bob Haro? Here are your choices:
A) Skyway
B) Redline
D) Diamond Back

Don't get me wrong, I feel bad for Dale and his family and friends. I hated DE for years but I didn't want to see him die. But he died using one of the low life, underhanded tactics that won him most of his races. He made a sharp move inside to cut off Sterlin Marlin, overcorrected and lost control. In his career, he put many guys into the wall for his own gain, at the same time putting their lives in danger. Sure I feel bad that he died, but the man deserves no respect.

I Got Two Words To Describe You Jack:

   RE:MISC:   Death Of A Legend!!! posted by jack on 2/22/2001 at 8:52:15 AM
O.K., maybe i was a bit hard on Earnhardt. This past Sunday, he was the least selfish that I had evar seen him. His goal toward the end of the race was to clear the way so somebody else could win the race. The Earnhardt from a few years ago would not have hesitated to put his son and team mate into the wall to clear the way for himself. I guess that he had gotten some integrity in the past few years
(and his win record has reflected that). Funny how when he started showing some sportsmanship, he stopped being the dominant driver. That says alot for his ability. Anyway, you cannot dispute the facts. The man never hesitated to bump the lead car to clear the way for himself, while at the same time endangering other drivers lives without a second thought. Sunday, it all caught up with him and he lost it. Had he seen Marlin a split second earlier and made his "cut off" move inside quicker, he would still be alive today. I don't know why all these Dale fans cannot accept the truth.

   RE:RE:MISC:   Death Of A Legend!!! posted by Jack Hater on 2/23/2001 at 12:18:27 AM
You're right, Earnhardt has bumped people in the past, nobody has ever said otherwise. He knew the dangers of Winston Cup racing & the possibility of die-ing in the race car & he accepted that. Marlin should've back off heading into three on the final lap. Earnhardt was in a very precarious position, there wasn't anything he could do about it. Marlin was going to make one last stand regardless of whether he would be in a position to win the race or not, thats what he gets paid to do, everyone knew he had the fastest car out there. It was just a very unfortunate racing accident. Earnhardt went out the way he was to sooo many of his race fans, a hero. Now his son's Dale Jr., who like his dad also uses an open face helmet & sits low in the car, & Kerry will assume their fathers legacy.

MISC:   Hutch Trickstar posted by: Keith on 2/18/2001 at 3:27:15 PM
Did any USA made Trick Stars have built-in pegs/standers?
I'm thinking about trading my 85' Redline Proline 800P F/F set for one,but I prefer a USA made one. How do you tell if its is USA or Overseas made?

   RE:MISC:   Hutch Trickstar posted by Jaymes on 2/18/2001 at 4:24:17 PM
If it has a baseball looking thing stamped in the frame after the serial number it is a japanese frame.

   RE:MISC:   Hutch Trickstar posted by Libertarian on 4/28/2001 at 7:28:39 PM
I was always under the impression that Hutch never built any Trickstar frame overseas. I have a Trickstar frame (it's American) and it had built in pegs on the fork. (I got rid of the fork though I didn't like it. replaced it with SE landing gear) It also has some really small welded on standers on the chainstays (they don't get in the way at all). I know they were having money problems in the late 80's and moved production to Taiwan to remain competitive (the late 80s Haro master frame was made in Taiwan and was a serious competitor). I was under the impression that once Hutch went to Taiwan they discontinued the Trickstar but kept building the Trickstar 2 (the twin top tube design). I kept trying to find a new Trickstar frame in 89/90 and everyone kept telling me Hutch didn't make those anymore.
The Trickstar 2 was also known as the Trickstyler if you got one with 24K Gold stickers. I still have a Trickstyler frame and fork.
However the Taiwan frames didn't go over so well and some ended up being sold in Western Auto stores (remember the XR-1, Jet, Excel and Windstyler bikes?). They did end up selling the company to Revcore (makers of killer racing frames!). Revcore did begin making new Hutch frames in America again, the most known being the Hutch Judge 2 (awesome frame). However they were forced to change the name to Hutchins. I still don't know why. I contacted Hutch/Revcore or whoever they were in 91 (I think it was Revcore) and asked if they were ever going to build a new Trickstar frame again. They said yes there was going to be a new one ready sometime in 91. I even saw ads for mail order companies listing it as NEW 91 HUTCH original Trickstar F/F but they never got them. I was later told by a mail order company that Hutch had changed their minds and were only going to build racing frames. I don't think Revcore ever built freestyle frames anyway (unless you count the CW stuff). Well that's the story about this company as I know it. There could be some mistakes in there. I don't know it all. I really wish Revcore would have made some Trickstar frames. Revcore was known for insane quality. Their frames were tough as hell. And Hutch's Trickstar frame was strong too, just saying the Revcore stuff was super strong. I think Revcore could have built it even better than Hutch did.

We know the IP address, path, header and all of the other tracking info for every message posted on our site. When a message is posted, that info is all written to a database, along with the message. We've been doing this for 5 years.

We try to keep an eye out for jerks, and appreciate it when you all send us email when you see something inappropriate. It just takes us a little time to get to cleaning up the messages. Babysitting isn't something I like to spend money on.

To date we have not done much about the jerks that occasionally show up. (Or rather the people that seem to fall into jerk mode) You'd find it funny if you saw who some of the idiot posters were.

We'll never implement passwords and logins. I see no need to do that. I have faith in people in general, though some of you do slip a bit now and then, eh?

GOT INTEGRITY? Another BMX deal gone bad Posted 2-16-2001 15:47

I don't know if you guys have been having any problems with making a deal with people on some of the BMX pages and then having them back out because someone had offered them more than the price that was agreed upon. I have and it has happened more than once. Does anyone out there have any integrity anymore? I am sure most of you saw the ad on Ultra BMX for the looptail Quad, PK Ripper and DG and spare parts for $450. It was for sale by Bill at annanne@yahoo.com. He has posted a few other ads also. I was the first to contact him and told him I would take them no questions asked. We made a deal. I gave him my address for a shipping quote and after several emails to him finally get the story that his family is mad a him for selling and he has had offers of $675 and $750. He said he was sorry. I had already purchased new stickers and pads for the PK and Quad. I was patient for over a month because I new it was a smoking deal and didn't want to push him too much and have him back out. I was really excited to get these bikes and now I am just really mad.You guys out there that offer someone more than they are asking just because the seller says the item is sold aren't any better than him. How is it that so many people have gotten so greedy that they don't care who they screw as long as they get what they want? The real world isn't near as easy as the one I lived in when I was a kid. All I had to worry about was going to school and getting home and going out to the practice track we had built. If I wanted some bike or parts from my buddies we traded for it. If they screwed you over you always new where they lived and you could TP their house! Sorry this has been so long winded. I have just been really frustrated and needed to blow off some steam.

I started to think the dude above was a reseller after 3 other old schoolers told me s.e. looptails are in high demand and made me higher offers,I DID NOT SELL because above dude was very interested and i did say it was a deal,I WAS THINKING DO I WANT TO BE RIPPED OFF IF IN FACT THEY ARE WORTH MUCH MORE.ok old schoolers lets go back to the garage,street corner,alley where ever you made your trades most were fair trades and tell me should I SELL TO ABOVE DUDE FOR 450.00.

The man agreed to your price, then you try to squeeze more money cause others who are too late contact you and tell you that they will pay more. If that is the case why do you still have the stuff? I guess that the guys that said it was worth more weren't willing to pay more? The value of something is determined by what someone will pay. I could tell you your car is worth..$100,000 does that mean it is....will someone else pay it cause I said that is what you should be able to sell it for? I hope you can sell it and make a fortune, but the bottom line is you would have probably been ecstatic to get 450.00 for the stuff before some JEALOUS JERK shot off their mouth. There is a place for people like you and it is E Bay!!!!!!!!!!!!
