Sunday, Sunday, Sunday

(Headline best said with a monster truck announcer voice.)

Lots of Sunday news in the past couple weeks, it’s hard to know where to begin.

So let’s just dive right in with the top 3 things going on at Sunday (if you’re a 24″ rider)…

1) Sunday recently debuted the 2012 version of their popular Model-C complete. Off the top, I’m pretty stoked on the refinements to the frame geometry. They’ve increased the top tube length to 22″ (yes!) and tightened the rear end to 14.625″. Lots of people have been asking for a longer top tube on the complete, so it’s great to see it finally becoming available.

Parts- wise, you can’t complain either. Odyssey parts including Quadrant rims, Mike Aitken tires, Monolever, and Twisted PC pedals are all standard on this bike. Throw in Sunday parts like the Sabretooth sprocket and Freeze stem and you’ve got one good-looking complete.

Check out Jim C. shredding this Austin ditch on the new complete for proof that this bike is no slouch.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

2) Sunday also recently posted a bike check of Jim’s recently built up Vapor Blue Wave-C.

This is one sweet looking ride!

It’s loaded with Sunday and Odyssey components and gives you a good idea of what a high-end, custom-built 24″ Sunday might  look like (and also how deep the Odyssey and Sunday product lines are). Check it out here. The guard dog named Monty is a nice touch too….gotta get me one of those.

3) If you’re an eagle-eyed reader, you may have noticed that both the Model-C complete and Jim C’s personal ride are sporting the new Sunday Freeze stem.

It’s no coincidence. Jim Cielencki  and Alex Magallan have been using the Freeze stem since February.

Feature-wise, the stem’s top cap is a 6061-T6 aluminum forging (for additional reinforcement in the bar clamping area)  with a  cast aluminum body. It has a 34mm rise (to maximize bar height) and a length of 52mm.   This is a good-looking stem.

That’s all well and good but I have you seen what the price is on this stem? $29.95! For a stem that can hold up to all the abuse Jim C. and other Sunday team riders can throw at it.

That got my attention immediately.

If you’re in the market for a top-load stem, this should probably be on your short-list of choices.
