Jim C. on the Model-C: video edit

29 03 2009

This video edit on the Sunday bikes site does a great job of showing  the Model-C and the plus 4 cruiser parts, going over all the unique design features of the bike and the thinking behind them.  More importantly it shows what this cruiser can do at the skatepark and in the streets. This is as much an ad for modern-day 24″ riding as it is for the Model-C. 
Check it out.

Big & tall Sunday 24umph bars

25 03 2009

It’s probably due to growing up near Buffalo, NY that I somehow have  a Buffalo TV station’s  commercial from the ’80s in my head whenever I read something about Sunday’s plus 4 parts. The  commercial featured a variety of Buffalo residents saying with fake glee, “We’re 4 Buffalo!”

Fortunately, the only connection that this cheesy TV commercial and Sunday bikes have in common is the city of Buffalo. Case in point, the new Sunday 24umph bars. Channel 4 in Buffalo has little to recommend it, but these handlebars are definitely worth checking out.

If you’ve been looking for a tall, wide cruiser handlebar (like I have), these could be just the ticket. You’re not going to find many cruiser bars with even a 6.5″ rise, much less  the 7.25″ rise that  these have. Believe me, I’ve been looking! They’re 28″ wide too. Created with the 41-thermal process  made famous by Odyssey they should be as tough as nails. I’d been looking at other handlebars but these are starting to look very appealing now that I know their dimensions…I have to admit I’ve already started to envision the silver ones on my bike…
