Flashback: Huffy Stu Thomsen Signature Bike Commercial

I figured I’d keep it Huffy and follow up last week’s flashback post with another one of their commercials. This one for their 1984 Stu Thomsen signature model. I imagine they either sent him a full shipping container of these things so that when one broke he could just pull out a fresh one, or the ones that he actually rode were made by someone else and not from Huffy’s proprietary munster cheese tubing. If only they put as much into their bikes as they did their commercials!

I mean, with James Fox handling the production and all the crazy riding that went down, how could it? Jump to (no pun intended) 06:00 if you want to get straight into the King of Dirt part. I really suggest watching the whole thing though!

Product: DUO TRL2 Pedals

I’m not sure when this happened but I noticed the other day that DUO had given their TRL pedals a bit of an update. Whereas the original TRL pedals had 12 molded in traction pins per side, the TRL2s have 10 replaceable thread-in pins and two molded in pins right in the center. The concave shape of the alloy body remains the same as the OGs and they still spin on chromoly spindles and unsealed bearings. Weight-wise they come in at 19.6 ounces and black, blue, silver and white are your color options. You can pick up a set wherever…

Flashback: Huffy Sonic 6 Commercial

They definitely killed it with marketing this pile because this ad for sure had 10 year old me reconsidering everything that he had previously been told about Huffys being junk. Thank god I stuck to the Mongoose Mini Californian!
