Sneak Peek: SE 24″ Quadangle Freestyle

5 06 2014

SE Bikes has been busy over the last day or so dropping teaser/sneak peek photos of some of their upcoming 2015 lineup.

One bike, in particular, is creating a lot of buzz…the new 24″ Quadangle Freestyle.

Sporting classic Oakley B-1B grips, front brakes, detangler, 80s-style white tires…this bike will pull at the heart strings of any old school BMX fan.

And if you’re going to go to the trouble of putting on Standing Gear forks, you gotta go with the frame platforms too, right?

SE doesn’t disappoint.

Here’s a close-up of the frame’s standing platforms.

You might recall that Rockabilly Jay whipped up a sweet custom SE Quadangle cruiser back in 2009.  That was impressive.

But this takes the whole retro revival thing to a new level.

Granted, it looks like a top-tube platform was not included…which is a bit of a misstep…bikes of the era (that this bike is supposed to emulate) almost always had top tube platforms.

Other than that though, the attention to detail…Oakley B-1B grips, Standing Gear…you name it….Todd Lyons and the SE crew get full points for going the extra mile on this one…this is one cool bike.
