Another cruiser convert…

30 01 2010

Spotted a great thread on yesterday called I rode a cruiser tonight at the track…and it was fun! written by a guy that usually rides only a 20″.

Sounds like he’s seen the light:

I rode my friend’s cruiser just to get some laps in. Well I ended up riding it all night. I absolutely loved every second of it. Jumps smooth, manuals soooo easy. I was just totally in love.

I had a similar experience…after riding a 20″ for most of my BMX “career”, I visited a BMX track while staying with my girlfriend’s family and was lent a Haro 24  to take a couple laps. It felt amazing and couldn’t believe what I had been missing…it’s been cruisers for me ever since.

If you’re reading this site you’re probably already a convert but it’s still nice to see people showing some love to cruisers on other sites too.  The thread is currently up to 3 pages, so check it out and join the conversation. Spread the word…Cruisers rock!

One of the people participating in the thread, BS, also posted a picture of himself taking care of business as part of the discussion. Love it because it reminds of lazy summer afternoon trails sessions…nice!

Conversion was great! I went from 26 to 24, tho. I think if mtb guys gave it a try they’d all switch. Unless your going for comfort, a cruiser just make sense!

getting back into bmx after 10 yrs. rode my old 20″ and felt real cramped so got on a 24″ and it felt more natural, more so than the little bike. jumping, racing, and cruising on a 24″ is much more comfortable and stable. i can do everything i used to do on my 24″. 24’s for life…..

just picked up a cruiser this summer to compliment my 20in. a WeThePeople Avenue to be exact. rides like a dream. i’ve literally brought both bikes to the park or trails and have been able to switch back and forth with no problem. New cruisers rock!!!!
