 When I was a kid a dual slalom bike was the absolute nuts, we all converted our XC hardtails to be like the Pro custom slalom builds...seems it’s now kinda reversed!
Ahhh man oldskool slalom was so rad

 Agreed! I used to lust after all of the slalom bikes in Dirt Magazine. I built up a 1st gen SC Chameleon with a Marz. Jr.T dual crown fork, original MRP chain guide and XT V brakes back in the day. While I never raced DS I did take it to a few BMX tracks and broke myself off something proper! Probably one of the coolest and most fun bikes I've ever owned.

 @pdxkid: I had a Kona DuDu. My dream bike as a kid and I got it! Dual slalom bike that came with a triple chainset, back when that shit was normal. Couldn't climb for shit, but great fun on a flow trail. I'm constantly tempted to build it up with pikes...

 I love watching the subtle flinches when the “microphone” gets near their faces. You’ll notice it now.
