Sneak peek: Sunday Wave-C prototype

5 11 2010

Sunday sent over some pics the other day of the new Wave-C frames they’re testing out.

While not a huge departure from the existing Model-C, it does have the wave top tube (that we’ve seen in earlier photos) and hollow dropouts with chain tensioners.

What’s changed/improved

  • a new shaped  chainstay allows you to run the backend shorter than the existing Model-C
  • a 22″ top tube (!)

Have to say, a longer top tube and the ability to run the back end shorter is a pretty big selling point for this frame. Not to mention the extra strength afforded by the wave tubing.

Production colors are probably going to be black and a light blue.

If the  color in these pictures looks familiar to you, you might be a flatlander.  It’s  actually the same one used on the Odyssey Flatware frame (and just being used for the prototype/test frames).





Custom parts make a one-of-a-kind ride

28 10 2010

If you’re on Sunday Bike’s Facebook feed, you may have caught this video of Wayne Keller riding his local skatepark.

What you may not know, besides tearing up the skateparks, Wayne also has a thing for repurposing, remachining and generally customizing his parts for his ride.

Check out his stem.  He carved the top off and engraved “Dork” on it. The cool paint job on both the stem and the sprocket are trick too.

His hubs are also attention-getting…painted in a “can’t miss this” orange.

To keep things fresh, Wayne’s redoing his bike at the moment and ditching the lime green and orange. He’s changing a bunch of his parts to different shades of grey.

Check out Wayne’s blog, carrot-bag.blogspot.com/ for more updates on the constantly evolving look of his Model-C.

Great to see  people  customizing their rides and making them their own.





More to Latvia than fast BMX racers

28 09 2010

When I hear Latvia and BMX, the first thing that comes to mind is super fast BMX racer, Maris Stromberg.

That was up and till I received this pic of Sergei Babikovs from Latvia.

I have no idea how fast he’s going to hit this double-peg up the ledge but it sure is sweet.

Fun fact: Sergei is riding the the only Sunday Model-C in Latvia.





The spanish can fly

1 09 2010

noinchrules is a blog out of Spain that has a mix of different things on it but more recently has featured some pictures and video of the guy behind it, Ivan, riding his Sunday Model-C.

Check it out.

Some pretty good air time here, can’t even get the jump in the frame…





Spy photo of Model-C front brake forks

10 08 2010

Bobby Parker from Sunday/Full Factory hinted about these in the comments recently when I posted about missing my front brakes.

Well, now we have a spy photo of the prototype Sunday Model-C forks with 990 mounts that he’s currently testing!

Bobby says they’ve been running great and Eben Krackau also has pair that he’s testing. No word yet on release dates but keep it tuned here for updates.





Kevin Jones rode a 24″ at the York Jam

2 07 2010

Flatland legend Kevin Jones showed up at the York Jam last weekend riding a Sunday Model C! Easily the most influential flatland rider of his era, the list of flatland tricks he invented is too long to recap here…needless to say, seeing him on a 24″ bike is pretty exciting.

Jim C has also got to be pretty pleased that Kevin is on a Model-C. Check out the Sunday Bikes site for a bigger version of the Eric Mitchell photo above.

For more 24″ flatland action, check out this post on Dan Sirkin flatlanding on his Model-C.





Like father, like son

13 05 2010

…or may be it’s the other way around?

Jon Faure’s been working on a video featuring him riding with his son and how getting a 24 (his Sunday Model-C) helped make it all possible.

Should be a great video. After all, you don’t see too many father-son trains flowing through Woodward West…unless the Faures are in the house that is.

Clearly Jon is raising his son right, just check out his table manners.

Like son, like father?

Jon shows the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
