Under the name of Shimano DX Series starts at this time a bmx program has no equal sought .
Bobby Encinas at this time a top racer of his guild was signed and was henceforth tester of the new parts.

Even a system with bmx gears there was at that time. This was a milestone had been but used only the simpler one-piece bmx cranks to date .
