Well, no luck here either. Russ Cycle Products is still registered, but “currently not active”. Any University students feel like swinging by and knocking on the door? On second though, never mind…I’d hate to think of who might have taken the address; no need to have a college kid come to grief just to track down a defunct bike frame maker.
Bmxstatz.com is also up for grabs, so no luck there either. Oh well; some people just get burned out on the intense life of the BMX world, that’s for sure. I couldn’t even begin to tell you how many people I’d met one year and never saw the next.
Like that time I was in Clearwater (or was it Dunedin? Maybe somewhere in the middle?) and got to know this really great group of guys for like two months or so; we were all training together. Yeah, as usual I kinda mistook mutual tolerance and fun with actual friendship; I think I heard from one or two of them like once each after it was all over. No biggie though, right…
The thing that really bugs me is that I can no longer even remember where we were. None of the things that I remember are exactly landmarks. Like the strip club with the ‘pocket Hercules’ or the place where we ate sushi…the Perkins where I heard the New Radicals or the theater where we went to see Phantom Menace and didn’t (what did we see instead?). All I can really remember is the 19 and the Sam Ash where I picked up the cheap acoustic…but that was far enough from our place that it doesn’t help too much…
My younger brother had a pretty common bmx accident. But the family was already heading on a trip for the beach. Fortunately our mother was familiar with this medical travel guide, and she booked his procedure at a hospital right by our hotel. He got to heal up while hanging out on the beach watching dolphins!
