Your authorative resource for BMX, Old school to New


Jeff Utterback had a side project called JU after GJS closed in 1985.  He designed approximately 250 of these mini frame and forks for riders under 70 pounds.  They were very light but a tad weak on the upsweep down tube where they would crack.  The seat post clamp area had a hole for the GJS seat post clamp.  With the limited number available and awesome design I thought I would give the bike a vintage 1979 feel for Jeff's heyday of racing.


Hope you enjoy another historical ride.
