You’ll see red: the 2018 Colony Eclipse 24

24 10 2017

Colony BMX updated their Eclipse 24 with a sweet looking colorway for 2018: metal red.

Spec/geo-wise, it’s pretty much the same setup as previous iterations.

With a steeper-than-most head angle, high bottom bracket and short rear stays…this is a great 24 if you’re more street-oriented in your riding (or just prefer a quicker steering bike).

Did I mention I’m digging the metal rad colorway?

So nice.

A closer look at the Colony Eclipse 24

25 03 2015

We got a peek at it last month but now we have the chance to take a closer look.

As promised, the Eclipse 24 features full cro-mo frame, fork, cranks and bars. Everything is sealed and the wheels are double-walled.

Cruiser-Eclipse-Side

According to Colony, they based this cruiser off their Premise complete bike, just scaled everything up (which is reminiscent of how Sunday developed the Model-C…taking features from their popular 20s and scaling them up).

Cruiser-eclipse-Angle

Before we get into all the nitty-gritty details, here are a few notables that stood out for me: the Eclipse features a 22″ top tube (yeah!) and a relatively steep head angle (at 75.2 degrees).

Another interesting spec (if the parts list is correct…) is the use of 170mm cranks…perhaps to make bar-spin tricks easier?

Here’s the complete parts/spec breakdown:

Cruiser-Eclipse-FrontIt’s looks like a pretty solid complete to me.

Sneak Peek: Colony Eclipse 24

12 02 2015

Colony BMX let the cat out of the bag a couple of days ago on Instagram. They’re releasing a new cruiser called the Eclipse 24.

According to the brief description, the new 24 is:

Full CrMo, full sealed everything, ready to cruise on or for those that want a bigger BMX for the dirt, park and streets.

I’m looking forward to checking out the full spec list once it becomes available.

Watch for these to be available in the U.S and Australia sometime in March. (Other countries will get them soon after.)
