Sneak Peek: 2014 SE Floval Flyer Elite

2 07 2013

SE dropped a couple of sneak peek photos of their 2014 Floval Flyer Elite complete bike yesterday that caught our attention.

As you can see, it’s received an eye-catching makeover in the looks department and, according to the teaser info released with the photos, the frame and parts assortment received a few upgrades as well.

The frame now has a new stiffer bi-oval downtube. In terms of components, the Floval Flyer Elite now comes complete with Alienation rims, Promax brakes and levers, and a lightweight Pivotal seat and seatpost to round out the upgrades. These changes are said to have shaved another 1/2 pound off of this already light bike…for a final weight of 22.2 lbs!

Time for a convertible?

23 08 2010

In an era where the seat post fights for relevancy (man, did I just type that?) the seat post for all seasons and all applications arrives from Odyssey. The Odyssey convertible seat post.

If you run a pivotal seat, a standard seat with rails, and just about every variation in between, this post has you covered. It’s like the swiss army knife of seat posts.

Personally, I like that it will allow me to kick my pivotal seat back a bit…to make things more comfortable when I’m just cruising around. I also like that a gold anodized version is available.

I don’t know how much appeal this would have for 20″ riders running slammed seats but for 24″ riders…and flatland riders, I suppose (not that that’s a mutually exclusive group), it looks like a good option.

Check out this video with Nuno at Odyssey (from RideBMX) explaining how versatile the convertible post is.

This cruiser is Mickey Mouse

This is kind of interesting…Nemesis Project got together with Disney Bloc 28 late last year to work on a 24″ BMX cruiser inspired by Mickey Mouse. The result is a pretty interesting mix of old school meets new school.

The bike comes complete with laser-cut Mickey “cross gloves” patterns for the seat and chain stays  and a custom  Disney inspired Pivotal seat.

As you can see, they also made sure it had the proper Mickey Mouse colors.

Myself, I’m most stoked on the classic Tuff Wheels and NOS Tioga Comp IIIs they fitted it with. Love the black mag and gumwall look.
