There's a rumor running rampant that Skyway is going to start making frames again. I can only hope that those will also be made in the US.
Pauly, you've probably already seen this, but Planet BMX is taking pre-orders for a new T/A cruisers. They will not be made in the U.S., unfortunately, because they couldn't find the tubing they wanted in the U.S. They look really cool, though, and the quality looks outstanding based on the pictures that were posted. Master Jim -- they are "retro" -- old looks with modern updates like v-brake mounts and 1-1/8 head tubes, Euro bottom brackets, etc. Whether this is just a one-and-done run, or the beginning of a continuous manufacturing of frames, I don't know. I'd love to buy a white one. I had holes burning in my pockets a few years back when they first started talking about these, but since then I've kind of cooled off on buying BMX bikes. But a new fram with some 24-inch tuffs is awfully tempting.
