Owning a Skyway is not like just owning a bike. You are investing in BMX History that will be part of this sport for eternity, and the Skyway TA Replica 20" Bike (2022) has had absolutely no corners cut throughout the project.
Since the introduction of the Skyway TA Frame Kits in the early 80’s, nothing has surpassed the genuine look of the iconic tear drop tubing that is TA (Totally Aerodynamic). Now in 2022, Skyway are proud to release the second generation of the original TA, as a frame set and a complete bike in 20 inch. The teardrop tubing has been sourced to make sure these bikes are as original as can be. Each bike uses the most appropriate parts to create that superior TA feel. Still with Genuine USA made Skyway Tuff Wheels and Genuine Redline Flight Cranks.
Exposing the Myth
Skyway’s new 2022 TA complete bike line up has created a lot on interest, and for good reason.Skyway was there in the BMX Heyday of the 1980’s and the TA was the most iconic bike of that era. This is the real deal. TheSkyway TA Replica 20" Bike (2022)is not a slapped together bike from an old BMX company created to make money.This project was 3 years in the making and has been driven by Skyway USA in collaboration with Skyway Australia.Some of the original Skyway staff that were there in the 80’s are still at the helm of Skyway in the USA. These are 2022made frames built using the same teardrop TA tubing as in the1980’s, however there are slight changes.
Skyway have redesigned these frames from the 2012 rerelease, back closer to the way they were in the 80’s.The 20” version now features a 21.5”TT,(24” has a 22” TT) full Chromoly teardrop TA Tubing, 1” Threaded fork steerer, USA BB set, side pull calliper brake mounts and a 25.4mm seatpost tube.The TA fork and Handlebar are also full Chromoly. Each bike and Frameset will be a numbered product to give this new complete, a mystique of its own. It will never be a genuine original 80’s model, but will be an affordable collector bike, or a fun retro all day get around bike.
The Skyway TA Replica 20" Bike (2022) project is driven by passion, not money and Skyway hope to make someone happy to know they can own a genuine Skyway bike themselves.
