So Bob Haro's facebook page has once again revealed more computer renderings of his new Ikonix BMX bike. Judging from the split top tube, it will probably be very similar the original 1985 Haro Master (below). But it looks like there is no Gyro/Oryg, so I don't know how this wiill be a freestyle bike if you can't do any tailwhips. But considering that only 540 will be made, chances are none of us will get one. Let's hope Bob takes that money from all 540 bikes and makes some nice retro BMX bikes for the .
So if you were cool growing up you had an awesome BMX freestyle bike. My sweet ride of choice was a 1987 GT Pro Perfomer, hot pink, white Skyway mag wheels, and Skyway pegs for the ladies. Ray can still be seen cruising Long Beach on his vintage Dyno Detour. Either way, I've been waiting for a BMX revival of retro style frames of yesteryear for us old skool riders. Well Bob Haro has given us a peek of what may be in store with his new Ikonix SX1 Prototype. Rumors have been spreading for a year about the bike he will produce, but it appears his concept bike above will have to suffice for now. Carbon frame, fork, and wheels are nice but too stiff and unaffordable for most of us. I hope the plan is to sell some concept bikes to a few millionaires to get some money, then start producing some old school style bikes.
