Do you remember the moment that you decided to start collecting BMX memorabilia? Mark McCorkle: It was 2008. I still had my original race bike from 1979. I had been hauling around, place to place for nearly 30 years. One day I just sort of realized I didn't feel I'd ever really use it. I figured if I could get $1000 for it, I'd let it go. After digging around on eBay, BMXMuseum and OS-BMX (now BMXSociety) websites, I generally found it was probably a $500-600 bike. So I decided not to part with it.

The Cobalt Expert steps up to a 19.5″ toptube, a longer 50mm reach cobalt stem, a slim Radio combo seat and wider 1 3/8″ ARISUN “XLR8” tires. Fresh out of the box for 2021 with incredible new paint and graphics, you’ll be able to spot a Cobalt on the track very easily. All Cobalt bikes now feature full sealed front hubs and integrated headsets, making them simply unbeatable when comparing price to spec. The Cobalt is one seriously unstoppable machine.
