The wack pack is on the attack!” Why anyone would think that would be a good slogan to sell bikes is completely beyond me. Given it was the 90s and shit was kind of kooky, but even at 15 I thought this was weird. It certainly didn’t have me saving up my lunch money to go buy a Univega.

Poor Robo, he had to eat A LOT of shit when he showed up on this aluminum piece. We were tolerant of his experimentation into the aluminum world when he was aboard the half aluminum half chromoly Frankenstein-esque contraption that was an Auburn. This was just too far though! Just like you never go full retard, you also never go full aluminum. Luckily for him, his Univega days didn’t last long. Also luckily and simultaneously amazing is the fact that this frame managed to not shear in half during that infamous ditch crash. Peep the other side of the poster after the jump.
