Love dice caps. Standard equipment bitd.
When I was born, the world was a far simpler place.
It was all just cops and robbers.
And BMX.

This has to be a troll right? how 80s are valve dice? Thats like saying you dont like BMX Mags?

If you saw my BMX, which after years of building is just yesterday finished, im sure youd quickly realise why clear blue valve dice with white dots are the absolute 80's dogs bollox! I like the regular sized dots not the spaced out ones  8)  I didnt want any black on my bike, apart from where my pure white bling pimped pedals join the crank, i like the suspended in the air floating look of that.

So crappy black plastic valves sticking out my perfect white sexy Skyways  :smitten:  just pissed me off. I hadnt just hand polished every single nut, washer, rivet, screwthread, bearing cup, bolt head and spring on the entire bike.. and even cleaned the end of the brake cable drum (wouldnt polish  :whistle: ) to have a finely tuned and balanced colour scheme fuked up by a cheap bit of black rubber.


But yeah cant get self inflating tires, so they have to be covered in something. So killing two unwanted birds with one stone i lined the red part of the Panaracer tire logo up with the black valves, and then totally took the attention off both with a cool as fook clear blue ice cube, with... wait for it, sit down or youll fall over with excitement... cool white dots on it!!  :slayer: I know its genius right? And i thought this through as an 11yr old in 84 when i first designed this bike and now 35 ys later im still right  :nuts:


Next youll be saying you dont like white chains or navy blue chrome custom decals?  :LolLolLolLol:


Now if you wanna bitch about something, lets bitch about white tires, why couldnt they make white tires? or white brake cables? I used to spray my grey dia compe cables white as a kid, they looked the absolute nuts!  :smitten:

I get that valve dice and coloured chains arnt for every BMX, like painted calipers on cars can look great or wtf is that messing up the look of the wheel. Depends on the car/BMX though, what look your going for. Mine rocks the fook outa a white chain  :slayer:  The whole bikes Chrome/White with some shiny Blue bits, needs the sun and outdoors for pics, ill get some when the weather warms up   :daumenhoch:

If i was going for the Piss drinking Gimp look id want black rubber vales 4sure! Hang a plastic tube of milk off the top for the authentic used look :LolLolLolLol:

all white chains straight to bin - white links all good, just ask Fiola.
