Gary Turner has caught our attention yet again with another new project.
This time it’s a limited-edition 29″ cruiser.
Hand built out of 4130 chromoly and chrome plated by Bush polishing (the way Gary has done it since the 70s) this is a nice looking frame & fork.
The limited edition series are numbered 29-01 up to 29-100 as Gary did with their retro 26″ cruiser (which is now sold out).
Gary mentioned in a Facebook post that several people had asked him about a 29″ cruiser which ultimately prompted him to do the limited run.
It got me to wondering, now that 26″ cruisers have a experienced a recent surge in popularity…is a renaissance in 29″ cruisers next?
There are number of signs this might already be happening.
FBM has wheeled out a custom 29″ cruiser (A 29″ FBM cruiser…who would’ve thunk it?)
Maybe 29″ cruisers are about to have their moment too.
It’s funny to think that this “retro” cruiser might just be on the front end of a new trend in the cruiser scene.
I’m going to keep my eye out to see if more 29″ cruisers start popping up from other companies…
