HB crew tries out the 24″ Quad Freestyle

2 09 2016

Huntington Beach (HB), California has been an iconic flatland spot since the glory days of Martin Aparijo and Woody Itson busting out cherrypickers for the magazines.

Today, that spirit still lives on.

Every Tuesday, a crew of old school flatlanders meet up to bust out some flatland moves.

Apparently an SE 24″ Quadangle Freestyle ended up there for one of these sessions and the crew ended up busting out some quality flatland on it.

Check it.

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!
