We got a peek at it last month but now we have the chance to take a closer look.
According to Colony, they based this cruiser off their Premise complete bike, just scaled everything up (which is reminiscent of how Sunday developed the Model-C…taking features from their popular 20s and scaling them up).
Before we get into all the nitty-gritty details, here are a few notables that stood out for me: the Eclipse features a 22″ top tube (yeah!) and a relatively steep head angle (at 75.2 degrees).
Another interesting spec (if the parts list is correct…) is the use of 170mm cranks…perhaps to make bar-spin tricks easier?
Here’s the complete parts/spec breakdown:
• Frame: Colony Eclipse Full CroMo, 22.0″ Top Tube, 14.5″ rear, 75.2 Head tube angle, 71 Seat tube angle.
