BMX Race cruisers at Interbike

24 09 2015

While not as big a showing as previous years, Interbike did have its share of BMX race cruisers on display this year.

Probably the most eye-catching was the Free Agent Limo. Featuring a bright colorway (compared to more recent years) and a new fork (I think) this is FA’s flagship race cruiser and it looks every bit the part.

Over at Redline, the workhouse of the race lineup, the Redline Proline 24 was on display. Solid, bang-for-your-buck race machinery right there.

At Hyper, it looks like the oil-slick colorway lives on (I kinda think it might be past its due date tho) with a 24″ kitted out with Snafu components.

At GT, the entry-level 24″ Mach One was on display. I was kinda hoping to see the Speed Series Pro 24 in the booth…but alas, they only had the 20″ version. I do dig that copper on white colorway on the Speed Series Pro 24.

The scoop on the GT Interceptor 24

8 08 2013

Crazy Al Cayne caught up with GT Bicycles product manager, Jason Halverson recently at Trumbull BMX to get the inside line on the new Interceptor 24 from GT.

I was stoked to see Al’s bike check post because my interest has been piqued ever since the ads started appearing in PULL magazine touting the “100% Chromoly” Interceptor Race Line.

Turns out that GT has taken some elements of its freestyle frames, like the dropouts and the larger downtube, and worked them into the Interceptor.  This is In addition to design tweaks to reduce flex and keep it race-ready. All in an effort to make a bike that’s equally at home at the track and the trails.

With S&M and Standard pretty much cornering the chromoly race frame market, it’s cool to see a mainline race brand re-embrace its roots and put out a quality chromoly race bike.

What do you think?
