This 26″ cruiser is Dyno-mite!

18 11 2016

The Dyno Compe was my first freestyle bike so I’ve also had sentimental feelings for Dynos.

To me, they were there the slightly cooler cousin to the more “mainstream” GT Pro Performer…which, as you know, has been re-imagined for the modern age as the GT Performer Pro 26″.

The kid in me wished that GT would’ve brought back a souped up (and scaled up) version of my old fav but to this point…I’ve been out of luck.

But now it appears my luck is changing.

While GT snoozed, Gary Turner (the OG G.T.) cruised….right into my heart with a 26″ Dyno-inspired 26er called the 26D Legend Cruiser!

As far as specs go, there’s some customization available but the standard issue is as follows:

  • 72 degree head tube angle
  • 22.5″ top tube
  • 17.75 – 18.90″ rear stay
  • 13.7″ seat mast height
  • 1 1/8 cup style head tube

Custom bits:

You can go OG with an American BB or modern with mid BB. You also have the choice of 990-style or V-brake mounts.

I think the only bummer in this situation is that Gary didn’t go with the classic Dyno fork with the bend in it. The 26D Legend fork is cool in an old-school Bottema fork way, but it’s not the Dyno fork I remember.

Word on the street is that a 24″ version is also on the way…I’m really looking forward to that!

I’d be all over the 24 version even though I never was a huge Dyno fan
