I never saw either of those ‘films’... but i was kinda deep into BMX (Freestyle?) culture in those days.. i had maybe my favorite possession I’ve ever owned in my entire life- a Mongoose Californian... oh the times i had atop that thing... later, i sold it to my cousin for $50, and got me a Redline bike.. technically, it was nicer, but nothing will ever compare to the love i had for that Mongoose.

I was always on my bmx bike but don’t recall ever seeing Bmx Bandits.

Had a collection of bikes that I sold to friends some 20 years ago or so. Recently a friend restored some of them. These were two of my old bikes. Picture was taken in December.

I once got my dream bike for my birthday. I lived uptown and as soon as my parent gave it to me I hoped on, rode the half a block to my best friends house, parked it on the sidewalk and went to her door to ring the bell. Right when she got to the door I heard the kickstand and turned around to see a teenager riding off. “Hey that’s my bike” “not anymore”

so the rest of my birthday was spent at second district looking at pictures of known bike thief’s. Never saw the bike again. Never forgot that birthday.

I'm gonna go with RAD, because I haven't seen the other film. My BMX bikes always got stolen. My GT got stolen at Circuit City and some winner broke in my parent's home and stole my Free Agent. No big deal now, but those were traumatic events as a teen.

Moved on to mountain biking and can't believe how expensive they have gotten. The top of the line mountain bike costs about $12,000. Who has that kind of money on a mountain bike, and who is crazy enough to ride that in public?

Rad wins this one for me. The backflip in the final race, Aunt Becky and the bmx dance scene put it over the top.
I second this... pre-crime Aunt Becky ftw...
