DK debuts 2019 Legend Retro Cruiser 26”

1 08 2018

For 2019, DK has opted for something new, something old-school-ish.

The Legend Retro Cruiser, a new addition to their lineup of completes,  sports 26″ wheels, throwback looptail stays and a chromoly main frame with a “show chrome” finish.

For an old school fan (like myself) it hits you with all the feels.

However, a closer look reveals that there’s plenty of new school tech as well to keep things rolling smooth and true.

The Legend Retro Cruiser parts package includes: double-wall rims, sealed bearings (throughout) and cro-mo 3-piece cranks.

Spec/geo wise, you’re looking at:

  • Head Angle: 72.5 degrees
  • Seat Angle: 72 degrees
  • Top Tube: 22.4″
  • Chain Stay: 16.5″

A pretty cool package for around $449 (US). Hit up your local DK dealer for a test drive/wheelie.

24″ BMX on a budget

29 01 2009

I was in my local shop the other day and saw that they were clearing out ’08 DK General Lee 24s  for $200 and change. Not a bad deal when you think about it…for less than the price of a department store bike you can get a pretty decent entry-level trails cruiser…heck, my brother has a $200 seatpost on his mountain bike….this bike is steal when you consider what you’re getting.


If you’re thinking about making the move to a 24″, on a budget or just looking to invoke the spirit of those fun-loving Duke boys; tracking down one of these bad boys (while they’re still around) might be in your best interests.

And how can I write something about the General Lee without including this?
