What were you doing in 1996? Since I have a feeling a good number of people checking this out may not have existed yet, or were super young at the time, it wouldn’t be a complete surprise that they weren’t watching the Schwinn “American Muscle” video that coincidentally featured a few of BMX’s legends that you might be familiar with. The crew at Snakebite BMX uploaded 13 minutes of raw behind the scenes footage filmed during a mini ramp session. Back with full face helmets, front and back brakes were the norm. Plenty of gold packed into this one, so hit play and take it all in!
“While filming for the infamous Schwinn video Osato & Miron decided to drive south of the border and ride my friend Andrews ramps. Andrew had his camera that day and filmed the session. Featuring Dave Osato, Jay Miron, Andrew Ryser, Ben Marin, Rich Hirsch, Jason Enns, & Nathan Penonzek.
At the end there are a few clips at Jarek’s ramp it that was not in the same town.” – Snakebite BMX
