You complete me…

29 10 2009

ESPN just posted a great interview with Jim C. from Sunday Bikes talking about their new line of complete bikes.  There’s some good stuff about the Model-C,  including details about the components and pricing:

The 24″ Model-C complete retails for about $550 and comes with a full chromoly frame, fork and bars. There’s eight different Odyssey parts including V3 cassette hub, Aitken 24-inch tires and EVO II brakes amongst others. The best part is it carries over the same proven geometry of the Model-C frame, fork and bars.

He also talks about why Sunday decided to go with a complete 24:

We decided to do the 24-inch complete because people mostly believed the geometry worked, but they weren’t willing to spend the money to find out. A shop could now let someone try it out, see that it works and be able to afford it without spending too much money.

Probably the best/funniest part of the interview is this part:

Riders have it good today. They could be getting an orange GT with curved toptube and three-spoke mags like we did back in the ’90s. No wonder why kids started skateboarding back then, the learning curve on one of those was terrible.

No word yet on what the top tube length will be on the Model-C complete, but more info is supposed to be on the way next week. I guess I’ll continue to keep my fingers crossed that it will be the 21.75″ size.

Kinda bummed that the TT length is 21.25″…I believe it’s the more popular size but for us long-legged types a little more room up front would’ve been appreciated.

Why on earth would they not allow a choice of either size?

Don’t know…but hope they reconsider…or maybe put out a limited run of them…

I couldn’t wait on the Sunday complete so I went ahead and bought the Fit CR24 which is great. After looking at $1,700 to build a Sunday I figured I could buy the Fit and still buy the Sunday in April and have money left to add new parts.

I really like the Fit so far. I took it to the track today and I am going to the park on Tuesday but the geo is great. It really does ride like a 20″.
I got the all black one. Took all the stickers off and added a Cruiser Revolution sticker to the head tube. It has a 21.5″ top tube and feels plenty roomy to me at 6’2″.

How did it handle on the track?

Interested to hear how the higher BB affects things on the track vs. park, street, etc.

I thought it handled great on the track but I am not much of a racer and have mostly ridden street/park/flatland so I am probably not the best judge. Compared to my Standard cruiser it felt more stable in the air but they may be due to me being more familiar with a freestyle type geometry.
I couldn’t get a good feel on the track due to the small gearing (25/11) but it was great to use to chase my kids around.

I loved it at the park. I have been doing stuff I haven’t done in 15 years.

I plan to keep racing the Standard. I am thinking of turning the Fit into a flatland bike and getting the Model C when the completes come out for the Park & Trails.

I stuck a peg on the front and hang nothings at high speed are a breeze.
