Trail testing the prototype Liquid frame

20 12 2013

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty stoked to see Liquid Bikes back in the game with the release of the Feedback V2 frame.

To remind everyone but how well Liquid frames handle in the dirt, Liquid’s Jeremy Combs posted some old footage of  himself riding  the Koala Trails on a prototype Liquid Feedback frame.

So rad.

Liquid releases Feedback V2 frame

9 12 2013

After a bit of a hiatus, Liquid Bikes has returned to the 24″ BMX scene with an updated version of its super popular Feedback frame.

Dubbed the Feedback V2, this frame is now being made in the USA by Solid BMX. It maintains the same proven geometry, but is lighter, stiffer and perhaps even cooler than the previous incarnation, in that it now features custom laser-cut bridges between the stays.

According to Liquid, the Feedback V2,

features newly designed chain stays that improve tire/sprocket clearance and stiffen the rear end compared to the previous version – all while keeping one of the shortest chain stay lengths in the 24″ market.

That’s in addition to some of the longest top-tube size options available: take your pick of a 22″ or 22.3″ top tube. Perfect for the taller rider…which, let’s face it, makes up a lion share of the 24″ BMX demographic.

Color choices for the Feedback V2 are Root Beer (trans-brown), Raw with clear coat and Satin Black.

Bottom Bracket height: 12.7″
Chain Stay: 14.25″
Head Angle: 74 degrees
Seat Angle: 72 degrees

Other notables:
30 tooth max sprocket clearance
2.3″ rear tire clearance
Double butted top and down tubes
Externally butted seat tube
Custom laser cut seat stay and chain stay bridges
Non-removable u-brake mounts
Weight: 5 lbs

Stoked to see Liquid back on the scene with some fresh gear.





A piece of your action

20 06 2012

Just when you start thinking, “Where’s a good action shot when you need one?”

Pat Joubert comes through with two great shots of him tearing things up on his Liquid.

Check out this great shot (taken a secret location) by Mike Lawless.

Or this one by Pat’s friend Jeff.  Serious air time at the public Greenlake trails in Seattle.

So rad.

(By the way, the whole time I was typing this I had Piece of your Action by Motley Crue playing in my head.)





Turning things up with a turndown

Hot damn!

Just a little inspiration for y’all as we head into the weekend.

Liquid frames aren’t just for the trails

11 08 2010

To date most of the pictures and webclips featuring Liquid Bikes have been pretty trails-oriented.

Made me kind of curious to see how it would handle in the street and in skateparks.

I guess I can stop wondering.

CMC from Austin shows that, with a couple of pegs thrown on, the Liquid Feedback becomes a capable street/park machine. (Photos originally posted on ridemonkey.com)

Check out the guy on the 20″ craning his neck to get a look.

Yes my friend, things really are more fun on a 24.





More good stuff from Liquid Bikes

15 04 2010

Liquid Bikes has a new site up that looks great! It includes a blog and an online store to make it easy to pick up a Liquid frame or bars.

While the store appears to be set up for US shipping only right now, you can email for details and get sorted for international orders.

I like checking it out for the great trails clips that Jeremy posts from time to time.

Like this one:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Liquid’s Bubblegum Blue frame

4 03 2010

Sometimes the right color just gives a bike a little something extra…like Liquid’s Bubblegum Blue frame.

This bike just looks super cool.

But it’s not just a good-looking bike, it’s got a roomy front end with modern geometry that’s built for serious riding (if the pictures and videos featuring Liquid’s Jeremy Combs are any indication).

I think we’ll be hearing a lot more from (and about) Liquid Bikes in 2010.
