Bobby Parker big bike rampin’

24 07 2013

Bobby Parker can shred pretty much anything…dirt, street, park, whatever…on both 20 and 24″ bikes.

Of course, when pics get posted of him shredding on his 24″ Wave-C…they immediately get our attention.

Nosepick of the Canadian variety?

Radness.

Spot the Cruiser Revolution sticker

11 04 2012

I always find it interesting to see where Cruiser Revolution stickers will turn up.

I was especially amused to see one show up in this picture (found the other day on BMX Museum).

Turns out Rockabilly Jay from S&M put up his beloved custom 22″ TT 38 Special for sale on eBay and he used this promo picture to advertise it.

(Eagle-eyed readers will notice that this is the same bike we featured way back in 2010 on Cruiser Revolution.)

Before you ask, I’m not sure who the model/rider is…but I will say she has excellent taste in knee/shin protection.





All in the family: the Shipp stable of bikes

13 01 2011

After checking out Cruiser Revolution for a while, Andy Shipp made the decision a few months ago to get his first cruiser. He went with a 2011 Mirraco 20forty.  Full chromoly construction was a big selling point and it was well spec’d for the price.

His wife ended up liking his new 24 so much, she bought a DK Cygnus cruiser for herself!  (Andy and his wife have two young sons…wonder if they’re going to be able to keep up to Mom and Dad?)

However, after riding the Mirraco for a short while, Andy decided that he needed to make a change.

He realized he would be happier on a frame with new school geometry, one  that was more suited to his style of riding.

The Sunday Model C fit the bill perfectly.

He tracked down a new Model-C frame for a great price and did a frame swap. (Perhaps inspired by the DIY complete post?)

Andy says his new 21.75″ Sunday feels much more like what he remembers from his 20″ days, only smoother and more comfortable.

And his Sunday turned out really nice!  The red components really pop next to the silver frame.

Here’s what it looks like now.

Check out the Shipp’s his and hers stable bikes. Riding in style!

Both Andy and his wife’s rides are sporting Cruiser Revolution stickers, and they have turned on a few other folks to cruisers and Cruiser Revolution (thanks guys!).

Andy seems pretty stoked that he’s taken the plunge into the world of cruisers…and that enthusiasm has clearly spread to the rest of the family. I just heard that they added a new bike to the collection,  A DK Kvant for their oldest son.





Something about these number plates…

20 06 2009

There’s something about these two number plates that I really like…but I just can’t put my finger on it.

Hmm…Don’t worry, it’ll come to me.
