Floval Flyer flashback video

23 02 2017

I kinda freaked out when I got my first look at the 2017 SE Floval Flyer last summer.

It was so retro-cool, chock full of throwback parts and gold ano…it got me right in the feels.

Now, SE’s back with a promo video for it that evokes the scratchy VHS vibe of old BMX videos.

It’s pulling at my heart strings all over again.

Dang you SE and your clever marketing!

Freaking out over the Floval Flyer Looptail

25 08 2016

While I’ve always been partial to the Elite Series Floval Flyer, and really dug the new 26″ PK Ripper Looptail, I’m kinda freaking out about the retro coolness of SE’s 2017 Floval Flyer Looptail.

It features many of the cool throwback parts of its bigger 26″ brother and than adds even more!

We’re talking about a cruiser with this laundry list of goodness:

  • Cowboy Cut forks
  • Skyway Tuffwheels with gold anodized hubs
  • Vee Tire Co x SE Racing Cub tanwall tires
  • Redline Flight cranks & sprocket
  • Bear Trap pedals
  • Kashimax seat
  • ODI Mushroom II grips.

(I would be remiss If I didn’t also note the nice, roomy 22″ top tube of the Floval Flyer Looptail…if only the Elite Series Floval Flyer came in a version this long…maybe next year Todd Lyons?)

And to top it all off? A liberalĀ  sprinkling of gold ano on the seatpost, stem…and yes…even the alloy valve caps.

Gotta love the attention to detail!
