Seatposts Were RAD!

Nothing is more classic BMX than the 1986 film “RAD” starring Bill Allen and Lori Loughlin. At this point it’s a cult-classic.

But would “RAD” have been possible without the seatpost, or with more modern “stubby style” seatpost? I doubt it. See the photo of Bill Allen above. He looks so comfortable. The bicycle boogie scene, the paper route…. it’s all about a seatpost of reasonable height. You just can’t sit down and pedal these days.

Respect “RAD.” Respect Bill Allen. Respect the Seatpost that made it all possible. Go ass-sliding.
