2017 Stolen Saint XLT & Zeke XLT

15 08 2016

The ever-popular Stolen Saint XLT and its newer 26″ cousin, the Zeke XLT have been updated for 2017.

The Stolen Saint XLT retains its main selling points: full chromoly construction, 48 Spline Cranks and double-walled rims.

What’s new this year is a slightly revised geometry.

For 2017, the Saint XLT sports the following specs:

  • HT: 74.25°
  • ST: 70°
  • TT: 21.75″
  • CS: 15.0″
  • SO: 9.6″
  • BB: 13.30″

Available in Satin White with Camo accents or Chrome Plated with Black accents (both versions look pretty trick in my opinion).

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of tanwall tires and the Saint XLT has those too…on their also ever-popular Joint tires.

Zeke XLT

The 26″ Zeke XLT stays essentially the same geometry-wise to its 2016 predecessor (You can check out the full specs here).

It also retains its full chromoly construction and sealed components.

What has changed is its look.

New for 2017 is the choice of a shiny red or flat black colorway (both with black components).

Some well-spec’d bikes with killer looks…hard to go wrong here folks.

Mirraco 20Forty gets a new look

6 08 2010

Ride BMX recently posted something on the 2011 Mirraco lineup that  included their 24″ complete, the 20forty. Looks pretty good in the flat black and red (the two different coloured wheels is a cool touch too).

Here’s the rundown of the specs (so far):

  • integrated headset
  • full chromoly bars and fork
  • three-piece chromoly crankset
  • sealed mid BB
  • Black Label Graduate plastic pedals
  • Black Label Slimfast 25t alloy sprocket
  • 21.3″ top tube

Mirraco is in the process of updating their site, so I suspect full bike specs will be posted when that goes live.

I’m little leery that there’s no mention of the frame material while the bars and fork are listed as full chromoly. I’m hoping that’s just an oversight and not a case where some high-ten steel tubing is getting snuck  in. If anybody has an “in” at Mirraco to find out, let me know.
