Finding that Commonground

14 04 2016

Back in December, we had a look at Commonground Bikesuncommon approach to the 24.

As you might recall, rather than taking the well-trodden path of many other companies…that is, scaling up a bigger version of 20″ geometry…Commonground took a different approach.

Commonground borrowed elements of 26″ dirtjumpers (slack headtubes, low bottom brackets) and scaled it down to a 24″ version (while still retaining many familiar “BMX-y” elements).

Have a look at that previous post if you want to see how the Commonground setup compares, side-by-side, to a typical BMX cruiser.

Of course, words and images are great but it’s always nice to see how a bike works “in the field”…or in this case, at the trails.

As luck would have it, Commonground dropped a video edit today that explains a bit more about the Commonground concept along with some good riding action.

Check it out.

Bonus section: the filmer seemed to really, really like the Commonground frame.

Shot some stuff for @commongroundbikes but I could only stay serious for so long… #traillife #actorlife #comedy
