See where a 24″ will take you

7 12 2012

You’ll sometimes hear people say that 24s aren’t built or designed for serious riding.

A load of bollocks in my view but an opinion that is pretty common in some circles.

If you want some evidence of how out of step that type of thinking is, especially with modern-day 24s, check out this picture posted today on the Sunday Bikes site.

Jim C House Park

Riding at House Park in Austin, TX, Jim Cielencki hits this tricky feature where you have to take off early and pull out far enough to clear the bars. And just to keep things interesting, it narrows at the top and goes over-vert!

Clearly, 24s like the Sunday Wave-C that Jim is riding are capable of much more than liquor store runs (like some people will lead you to believe).

Modern-day 24s can go anywhere!

Be still my heart…flatland on a 24″ bike!

21 10 2009

Sunday bikes posted some great pictures today of flatlander Dan Sirkin busting out a bunch of flatland moves  on his Model-C.  Hitchhikers, steamrollers and more…According to Dan:

“Just about anything is possible.  It definitely spins a bit slow because of the big wheels but it holds straight lines and wide circles very well.”

Just another example of the versatility of modern-day cruisers. For more 24″ flatland,  check out this video.
