The Devil 24 inside Free Agent’s lineup

11 01 2011

Often overlooked when talk turns to freestyle 24s, is the Free Agent Devil 24.

Surprising, since it features a full chromoly frame, fork, and 3-piece cranks, along with micro-drive and double-wall rims.

Geometry-wise, it sports a 74 degree head angle, 21.5″ TT and 15.9″ chain stay length (no indication if the CS length is middle of the dropout or slammed). Bottom bracket is at more “traditional” height, compared to most freestyle 24s today, at 12″.

All in all, a pretty sweet deal for a bike that retails in the $400-500 (U.S.) price range.

The “Gun metal blue” frame and fork is pretty easy on the eyes too.


You complete me…

ESPN just posted a great interview with Jim C. from Sunday Bikes talking about their new line of complete bikes.  There’s some good stuff about the Model-C,  including details about the components and pricing:

The 24″ Model-C complete retails for about $550 and comes with a full chromoly frame, fork and bars. There’s eight different Odyssey parts including V3 cassette hub, Aitken 24-inch tires and EVO II brakes amongst others. The best part is it carries over the same proven geometry of the Model-C frame, fork and bars.

He also talks about why Sunday decided to go with a complete 24:

We decided to do the 24-inch complete because people mostly believed the geometry worked, but they weren’t willing to spend the money to find out. A shop could now let someone try it out, see that it works and be able to afford it without spending too much money.

Probably the best/funniest part of the interview is this part:

Riders have it good today. They could be getting an orange GT with curved toptube and three-spoke mags like we did back in the ’90s. No wonder why kids started skateboarding back then, the learning curve on one of those was terrible.

No word yet on what the top tube length will be on the Model-C complete, but more info is supposed to be on the way next week. I guess I’ll continue to keep my fingers crossed that it will be the 21.75″ size.
