nice--how does it ride?
Just like I remember, but a bit lighter with the newer parts. I rode this all Summer and Love it, This was a well thought out and executed bike for all around ,But I only ride Flat on this one, I ain't pushing her in a Park.... I have plenty of other bikes strong enough for that.
 Ya diggin' those Chrome Cable housings?


Went through quickly just to look at the pics. Sweet ride man. Happen to remember the exact weight?

I don't remember who ,but someone said This couldn't be done. Well here it is, a 30t front sprocket and an 11t rear WITH Chainstay mounted brakes.Hombres with Diatech spring and Fly hardware.

I know this is an old post, but a few people told me I'd have the same problems on my Master. Using a 9t/25t setup, I can run the Eclat Unit and the Kink Desist Ubrake in the rear with enough clearance. Hope this helps someone like me in the future.

Nice bike.  What was the deal with General.  They just seamed to come out of nowhere and sponsored R.L. and Fred Blood.  Then they were gone.  was it part of another company?

No, very small and wanted to get big, so they gathered some pros ,let them have complete input and then blew up.  To my best recognition.

Back in the day, I should have been riding one of these instead of an '87 or '88 Master (before my '89)...mainly because it has the twin top tube without the ridiculous frame standers built into the chainstays in the rear. That was just the worst. It made your pegs about an inch long when the bike was upright. I was so damn happy when I got my '89 Master and it didn't have those ridiculous standers on it.


These frames rule as far as old school goes. I liked the Bravo pros too if the frame standers are sawed off.
I will buy your spotless frame from you and beat it up.
