Terrible One Barcode Frame Colors

Terrible One Barcode 2008 Colors

Funny, I was just chuckling about the ad on albes.com that says “1988-2008. We’ve been around since the first time neon colors were cool”. See, there was a time in the very recent past when BMX went chrome and black, with a few colors mixed in here or there. I believe it had a lot to do with the fact that not only did painted or anodized colors go out of “fashion”, companies probably cut back on the number of colors available to cut production costs. Pre-X-Games and the recent growth of BMX, companies simplifed yet also fed the desires of the riders who remained at the core of the sport.

Now, there is a virtual cornucopia of colors to be had from most manufacturers. Painted, powdered, anodized – whatever a rider may want, he can have. Or it is common to custom paint the parts, or strip them down to their raw, welded state. Terrible One just released their new colors for the 2008 Barcode frame, and following the desires of their buyers, they’ve got a beautiful robin’s egg blue, and a hot (welded, get it? hehe) clear/raw finish. Their site says that this is just the beginning of things to come for 2008. Also, if you’re near Austin, be sure to head to the T-1 ramp this Saturday for a fakie-air contest. Should be a fine time.

Oh, and I’m right there with the bright colors – I just built a new Standard 250 that was custom-painted a bright jade green. More to come on that…
