Le Green Machine

Found this gem on the Monday night road ride from Wheel Base in Frederick. Apparently, the Green Machine now comes with a real rubber front tire for traction. We used to add duct tape "treads" to our plastic front wheel for increased speed. Today's kids don't know how good they have it.

I always wanted one of those when I was a kid. But I got the Big Wheel instead.:(abuehrmj

I had neither...
no Big Wheel
no Green Machine
not even a BMX bike
guess that explains my inability to bunny hop

The Big Wheel had more top-end speed, the Green Machine could spin out - while both could jump ramps, neither could bunny hop.
