Spy photos of more 2016 SE Cruisers

21 07 2015

As mentioned in the previous post, Sneak Peek: select 2016 SE Cruisers, the new lineup of 2016 SE cruisers is being revealed in bits and pieces to generate excitement for the new line.

It seems to be working.

The BMX Museum thread on the topic has reached 12 pages already and I see no signs of that stopping any time soon.

I’ve been peeking at it now and again and that’s where I saw the following teaser shots of even more 2016 cruisers.

Let’s have a look.

First off, the Floval Flyer.

If you remember the CR test on the Floval Flyer (from a few years back) you know how much of a fan I am of this bike. Again, SE upped the ante with even more polished aluminum/chrome to make this bike as shiny as it is fast.

Next up, the 24″ Quadangle Freestyle.

Jumping off from last year’s version, SE has adopted a new white and blue colorway which is actually more evocative of the freestyle-y SEs of the 80s.

Think back to that iconic Freestylin’ cover of Todd Anderson jumping over a car of SE dudes or even Rockabilly Jay’s sweet custom Quadangle cruiser…this colorway is on point.

 

Finally, the Big Ripper.

This year, it bumps up the old school factor with a checkered padset and a generous helping of chrome and gold anno accents. If you were around during “the golden days of BMX”, you know this big boy hits all the right notes.

I’m definitely digging the updates and new colorways of the SE lineup.

Tip of the hat to Todd Lyons and the SE folks for the great work, especially for the retro line!





Sneak Peek: select 2016 SE Bikes

2 07 2015

Todd Lyons (of SE Bikes) is slowly lifting the veil on the 2016 lineup of SE cruisers.

For the last week or so, he’s been showing bits and pieces of some of the bikes. But just a couple days ago he showed what at least two of the cruisers in the lineup would look like.

First up, the 24″ So Cal Flyer. Sporting an old school look, it features a retro stem, Flyer seat, and a classic SE Racing padset. Some gold graphics round out the retro vibe on this one.

Next up, the 26” Quadangle Looptail.

If you’re old school, this will definitely be your cup of tea. It features the unique double downtube frame that the Quadangle made famous so many years ago, along with a looptail rear end.  The black, gold, and chrome colorway (and checkered pads!) make this look like it came out of a time machine from early days of BMX.

Lyons has been dropping hints of the new lineup on the regular, so stay tuned for more updates. I’ll be sharing them on the Facebook page whenever they pop up. From the hints he’s been sharing so far, I think we’re in store for a lot more cool stuff.
