Gary Turner unveils 29″ cruiser

30 06 2016

Gary Turner has caught our attention yet again with another new project.

This time it’s a limited-edition 29″ cruiser.

Hand built out of 4130 chromoly and chrome plated by Bush polishing (the way Gary has done it since the 70s) this is a nice looking frame & fork.

It got me to wondering, now that 26″ cruisers have a experienced a recent surge in popularity…is a renaissance in 29″ cruisers next?

There are number of signs this might already be happening.

FBM has wheeled out a custom 29″ cruiser (A 29″ FBM cruiser…who would’ve thunk it?)

Todd Lyons has shown you can get rad in the dirt on a 29er.

Peter “Pdog” Ulbrich has taken his 29er to the street, the track, the skatepark and just about everywhere else in an edit from a couple years back.

Heck, Pdog has even released an edit that is almost exclusively bowlriding on a 29″ SE Big Ripper.

Maybe 29″ cruisers are about to have their moment too.

It’s funny to think that this “retro” cruiser might just be on the front end of a new trend in the cruiser scene.

I’m going to keep my eye out to see if more 29″ cruisers start popping up from other companies…

Clip du jour: Cale Avery Schindler

27 03 2014

Clip du jour.  Clip of the day.

Cale Avery Schindler comes through with a great edit that sees him shredding everything in site.

Whether it’s street, the skatepark, a race track, dirt jumps…you name it…no terrain is safe is from Cale’s unique brand of radness.

Filmed and edited by Pdog (who’s no slouch in the riding/edit department either) this video should get you stoked to ride, for sure.

Nice job Cale.

(I thought for sure he was going to slip off this pipe at 1:05 in the edit)

More rippin’ on the Big Ripper

30 12 2013

Peter “Pdog” Ulbrich last caught our attention when he dropped a web edit featuring him bowl riding on a Big Ripper.

Well, he’s back again and taking his Big Ripper to the street, the track, the skatepark and just about everywhere else.

If you think a 29er is just for jumping curbs and cruising, this edit will change your mind.





Bowl riding on a Big Ripper

10 12 2013

Now I’ve seen everything.

The last time we caught up with Peter Ulbrich he was shredding a race track in a decidedly non racer-like manner (see This is where things go off the chain).

Now he’s back for a little skatepark/bowl riding on a 29″ wheel SE Big Ripper.

Yes, you read that right.

An SE Big Ripper.

With 29″ wheels.

Oh Man….
