There are no new ideas.

Nice looking GT Avalanche from 1988 made the rounds of VRC-dom recently. Look closely and you'll notice some new technology making an early appearance on this 23 year old beauty...

Pinch bolt cranks! Circa mid 80's or so, from longtime component maker Sakae Ringyo (aka SR.) Old timer BMXer doods will recognize these babies, and while that's all well and grand, these did come spec'd as standard equip on the Avalanche in ''88


All we need now is outboard bearings. Oh wait...the big "S" already moved away from that right? Press in bearings are the shiznit now right? New tech? Poor Klein/Fat/et al.





and from the GT catalog. Dig the mushroom cap helmet in the lower left picture. I'd sport that.
