26″ Skyway T/A is alright for wheelies

6 11 2015

News and “sneak peek” shots of the 26″ Skyway T/A continue to show up on the various social media feeds.

Here’s a nice shot of it that I spotted earlier today (on Ed Ferri’s feed, I believe).

We’ve also got word on what the geometry is (at least for now, in the prototype stages).

At the moment, we’re looking at the following:

  • Top tube: 22.69″
  • Head angle: 71.5°
  • Seat angle: 70.5°
  • Chain stay: 17″
  • Bottom bracket: 11.72″

According to this video (that also just got posted in the last day or so), this geo gives it a “race-y” feel…and also apparently, makes it quite easy to wheelie.

They should hire me to advise them on how to do it right !! : )

Make an actual progressive 26″ BMX with a old school flair.

Not old school geo with new technology.

Steeper head angle, shorter chain stays and a higher BB. Bring something new to the game.
