Carbon footprint in cruisers gets bigger

11 02 2015

The move to carbon frames has been very pronounced lately, specifically in the 20″ versions of high-end race bikes.

Cruisers have been a bit of an afterthought (if that) with the exception of the Prophecy Scud 24.

Maybe that’s beginning to change.

EpiK Carbon Products dropped the news the other day that they are going to be releasing a limited run of 24″ cruiser rims in March.

Sounds pretty interesting.

If anyone picks up a pair, I would love to hear how they perform.

 





The Prophecy Scud 24 in action

16 01 2013

In December, we shared the news that Prophecy was planning on releasing a carbon 24.

Pictures were scarce, so we did not have much to go on beyond some basic specs and a picture of their 20″ model.

Thankfully over the weekend, FastlaneBMXMag managed to not only track down some pictures of the Prophecy Scud 24 prototype but a web edit of Trevor Stamford putting it through its paces at a BMX track.

As you can see, the Scud 24 is not going to weigh you down.

The prototype built up into a full-on race machine.

And the prototype in action.

What do you think? Would you race a  24″ carbon frame?
