The Darrell young frame was considered way ahead of it`s time and is still considered one of the all-time greatest BMX frame and fork sets. He was an original member of BMXA`s "Terrible Ten" list. He was also a top contender for ABA`s #1 Amateur and Cruiser titles for many years. Turned Pro in 1984, was also the holder of ABA`s National #1 Pro cruiser title in 1992.
