Top Ten of 2010

31 12 2010

Here we are here again, on the eve of a new year.

It’s been a big year for 24″ bikes.

Let’s take a look at the top ten things that went down.

10.  24s got vertical. Ben Snowden hit the vert ramp on a borrowed cruiser and showed 24s are at home on any terrain.

9.  The world is still flat (for some). Kevin Jones turned more than a few heads by riding a 24″ at the York Jam.

8. BMX Plus! didn’t know if they loved us or hated us.  We didn’t care, we’d rather read Fastlane BMX mag anyway.

7. Kids are traveling in style these days. Front of the bike, back of the bike or in a custom sidehack, these kids are along for the ride.

Sidehacks are fun

6. Cruisers went brakeless.

5. Front brakes made a comeback.

4. Sunday came out with a front brake fork prototype….and a shaved head tube prototype frame…and a wave tube frame prototype.  This, on top of introducing TWO 24″ bikes in their lineup at Interbike.

3. Twin-top tubes made a comeback.

2. Liquid Bikes made a splash with the progressive Feedback frame.

1. It’s still all about the ride. Old school or new school, it’s all about getting out there and riding your bike.

Happy New Year everybody!

Great end of the year article. You know, i love looking at pictures of other peoples personal bikes. There should be a spot where readers can post pics of their rides. i Love seeing what everyone else is riding. But anyways bro….keep the great articles coming cuz i’m checking this site everyday from my phone to see what article or reviews you are doing. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I agree. I always love checking out other bikes at riding spots. It is always interesting to see how other people have their bikes spec’ed and set up. If there was a way to do so on this site that would be sweeeet!!

I agree with Mike. CR needs a forum with profiles.
Time to go big time. Get advertisers. Quit you day job.
This is the only current place for good 24″ BMX news.

Why not make it the place for 24″ BMX PERIOD?
