We Were Rad Book
Brand: We Were Rad
The definitive book on the history of BMX in the UK in the 80's, told by the kids that lived it. This isn't just another BMX book, it is the bible of old school BMX. I have all the benchmark books about BMX from the 80's from Don Smith, Geoff Barralough, etc and this goes beyond all those. Just the sheer size of it alone blows everything else away!
Over nearly four years in the making, the authors Antony Franscina, Clint Pilkington and Andrew Rigby have put their heart and soul into this, amassing an archive of over 10,000+ images. They interviewed hundereds of members of the public for their recollections of street riding, racing and freestyle. Along side this they interviewed the great and the good from 80s BMX both here in the U.K. and some of the great American riders too. The ethos being to show how diverse BMX was in the 80s with great riders from all socio-economic, age, gender, race and sexual orientation included wherever possible.
