Blue Monday: Fairdale reveals ’19 Taj color

16 07 2018

If you were on the Cruiser Revolution Facebook page over the weekend you might have already seen this.

Fairdale has revealed the 2019 colorway for the Taj Cruiser and it is looking nice! (This color is right up my alley.)

No word if anything has changed much from the previous year’s edition (geo and specs) but from a quick look above it seems like Fairdale is sticking with the tried and true.

Which is great because that means you can still pull off daring stunts like the one below without too much trouble.

Radical!

Fairdale Taj Cruiser in classic chrome

30 03 2015

Way back in September, while poking around the displays at Interbike, it became clear that 26-inch cruisers were having a moment.

More and more companies were adding 26-inch cruisers to their lineups and it was pretty cool to see more big wheel BMX bikes getting some time in the sun.

One of the cooler 26″ cruisers on display was the Fairdale Taj Cruiser.

Built tough but maintaining a retro vibe in its appearance, it has always been a real eye-turner.

If you remember that post (or check it out here), you’ll remember we got the “inside scoop” that Fairdale had plans to offer it chrome.

Well, it looks like Fairdale is doing just that.

Upping the ante again, in the classic, old school looks department.

Yes, my friends…it looks like a classic chrome version of the Taj Cruiser is in the offing!

Fairdale Taj ChromeSo nice!

Word on the street is that these will be arriving in the next couple weeks.

Don’t sleep on these though, I have a feeling these are gonna go quick.





Someone’s nosy

Parents, lock up your daughters because @matt_nordstrom ‘s crazy hip action is going to drive them into a frenzy.

I didn’t expect to see this kinda crazy nose manual on a TAJ cruiser but here we are…pretty rad.

26 inch cruisers are having a moment

16 09 2014

Walking around the displays at Interbike, it’s hard not to think that 26″ freestyle cruisers are  having their moment in the sun right now.

With Subrosa deciding to add the 26″ Malum to their lineup this year.

To the Fairdale Taj with it’s retro design cues.

Fairdale Taj 2015 InterbikeInside scoop: Fairdale has plans in the works to offer a chrome version of the frame & fork later this year…and maybe a chrome version of the complete after that. (Hot damn!)

To Volume, who has been down with the 26″ for some time now…in this case, the Hessian.

Volume 2015But the 26″ that really caught my attention was the Stolen Zeke XLT.

Following the same nomenclature as their 24″ models, the Zeke XLT is a full cro-mo version of the tri-moly 26″ Zeke that turned heads at last year’s Interbike show.

Zeke XLT ttSporting a cool matte black with blue colorway, the display model was shown with disc brakes. While 990-style brakes come standard on the Zeke XLT, the display model was outfitted with the disc brakes to show that the bike was “disc ready” and could be switched over if so desired.

Certainly some great options in the 26″ side of things.

I  wonder if the increasing popularity of 26″ bikes will prompt We The People to bring back the 26″ Champ cruiser…not that I would want their 24″ offering, the Atlas, to disappear.

More Interbike coverage to follow.





Sneak Peek: 2015 Fairdale Taj Cruiser

17 07 2014

Fairdale Bikes recently put out a preview of their 2015 lineup and part of that preview included the 2015 Taj Cruiser.

The Taj is now in an eye-catching red and features Odyssey grips, seat, pedals, brakes and levers. It will be available as a complete and as a frame and fork kit.

“Wheelie Poppin’, Curb Hoppin’ Track Certified Geometry.”

That’s good enough for me.
