Beautiful Bicycle: My Brooklyn-Built Rosko BMX Nov 18, 2011


Even though I posted a shot of my Rosko 20″ BMX earlier this week, I wanted to ride it a bit before I put up a proper bike check. I’ve pedaled around on Eric and AJ’s BMXs here in Austin, so I had an idea of what exactly I needed to fit on a bike with 20″ wheels. After talking to Seth Rosko a few times, I decided to support his endeavors in Brooklyn and put down a deposit.

Once the True Temper Supertherm tubing was in, Seth got cracking on this bad boy. The tubing, bb shell, and drop outs are all made in the USA, as are most of the parts on this bike. People in Brooklyn have been ripping on these bikes for a little over a year now. With a 75 hta, it’s responsive and easy to throw around and with the bb sitting at 11.7″ with my tires, it sucks itself up with your feet. I’ve been out on this everyday and my other bikes are getting jealous.
