    Maybe a Rungu Juggernaut in your future?

    Don't think of FT bikes as just snow bikes, they do the shore, sand and rock climbing too.

    I'm not sure where I saw Fred Blood in the roster... maybe it was in the credits.

    found this though. I had that in black. It was a decent bike for not too much money but some of the stock parts were heavy so swapped out. Particularly the Rims. I DOUBT he has the stock rims here...

    I just stumbled on this. I found it on Prime last night. I may have to purchase. I'm stoked that they didn't just digitize the DVD but actually restored it... if this ad is true that is.

    I'm not sure which version I got but it def looked a bit sharper than the old grainy VHS tape I remember renting over and over and over again from the local video store where I grew up.

    I'd like to think they're restoring it to 4k for submission to the National Film Archives. This is pure Americana

    When my daughter was watching with me and the dance scene came on, she looked at me and said, oh sure, like a freestyle exhibition is going to break out in the middle of a dance.' :rolleyes:
    I looked her straight in the eye and in my most serious tone said 'yes. yes they did'.

    my cousin's band covered Send Me an Angel in honor of the movie.

    Unfortunately this is the only evidence i can find of it.

    Same here, all of it. Couldn't be more pleased with the customer service, selection, pricing, etc. Not always the best deal, but it has to be worth the trouble to shop around. And I can't even estimate the amount of time, driving, gas, and frustration it's saved me from shopping around town. During the pandemic, don't know where I'd be w/out Amazon (and some other online retailers).

    Studio version they did on their last recording before they split. I recorded their first Demo record for them. I wanted to stay with them but I had to commit to career and family obligations. Vox could be a bit better on this but I wasn't there to fix :whistling:

    Wow. 2 older bothers. One watched RAD over and over and the other watch THRASHIN' over and over.
    Bikes and Skate boards. It's what we did as kids in the 80's in California. Damn. that takes me back.

    We have Sweetwater and it’s always a better deal than Long & McQuade. I bought my Greenback from L&M because it was a better price than Amazon and Sweetwater doesn’t carry them but I’ll save over $100 buying an Ibanez from Sweetwater than Amazon or Long & McQuade.

    I love my Prime. I saved about $200 buying a pair of igniters for my GE range instead of buying from Reliable Parts. They were $37 each with free next day shipping or $125 (plus shipping), prepaid special order, we’ll get them to you in a week or two at RP. The range is upper range and would cost $1,500 to replace. I’ll bet it would cost about $400 - $450 to have it repaired by a repair service. I was in and out within $100 and I replaced all of the mounting screws at the same time.

    I just bought all of our landscaping lights from Amazon. Not cheap but not overly expensive and they deliver really fast.

    Oh... I used to ride BMX before BMX was a thing. My stunt bike was a Sears job that I painted black, removed the banana seat and replaced with a leather Brooks saddle. It kicked ass and I was fast on the track we made. I had some others. Today I ride a Norco All Mountain bike. It’s pretty cool; hydraulic disc brakes, hydro form alloy frame, full suspension. It’s pretty light and puts up with my abuse which isn’t a lot of abuse.

    One of my former employees was Kevin "Sheepdog " Hull. He told me he was in the movie, but I have never watched it. He was still riding bmx 15 years ago
