Flying econo class in style with DK

9 09 2017

If you’re low on dough, new to riding or making a comeback to the sport, you might not be able to pick up the latest high-end cruiser with all the bells and whistles.

But even with that being the case, you still want a cool looking bike that’s fun to ride…you just have to do it on a budget.

If that sounds like you, DK has got you covered.

On the freestyle side of things, the 2018 DK Cygnus 24″ clocks in at around $360 US (complete!).

Built around a “chromoly main frame”, the Cygnus sports tall bars, 170 mm cranks and the choice of teal or beige colorways.

The geo looks pretty good too:

  • Head tube angle: 73.5º
  • Seat tube angle: 73º
  • Top tube: 21.5″
  • Chain stay: 14.75″
  • BB height: 12.6″

On the race side of things, the 2018 DK Sprinter Cruiser 24″ is also an excellent value for what you spend ($419.99 US).

Built around a 6061 alloy frame, 100% chromoly forks and double-wall rims, there’s a lot to like here.

The royal blue colorway with red ano accents looks pretty dialed too…more befitting of a bike with a much higher price tag, but extra cool to see on a bike at this price level!

The geo checks out on this one too:

  • Head tube angle: 73º
  • Seat tube angle: 72º
  • Top tube: 21.75″
  • Chain stay: 15.25″
  • BB height: not specified

All in all, some pretty cool rides for not a lot of dough.

Either one would be a perfect entry point to riding and both can be upgraded as the need arises and your skills progress. Definitely some solid choices if you find yourself wanting to fly in the economy class.
