Letting the freak flag fly on the Fat Ripper

26 10 2015

The SE Fat Ripper is a bit of an anomaly in the BMX world.

It has the look of a classic PK Ripper with floval tubing, looptail rear end, and Landing Gear forks…but then mixes it with 26 x 3.5” tires, 65mm wide rims, and disc brakes.

It was a headturner (and probably a headscratcher for some) from the time the first time a sneak peek was released.

But how does it ride?

Todd Lyons seems to have anticipated that question and has been pretty tireless with dropping pictures and clips of him riding this beast.

Now, apparently to silence all critics, Todd and SE have dropped an edit of TL shredding all manner of obstacles and terrain aboard the FAT Ripper. ( And, as a sidenote…can I mention how awesome it is to see a company rep shredding one of their big-wheeled bikes? This doesn’t happen enough.)

Sure looks like this thing can handle just about anything in its path.

Travis Barker rolls on a SE Big Ripper

11 02 2013

Rollingstone.com just posted a behind-the-scenes article about how Travis Barker prepped for his Grammy’s performance last night.

Part of that prep involved going for a bike ride with his kids aboard his SE Big Ripper!

His kids are also budding BMXers…if you squint you can see a PK Ripper and Bronco in the background.

Word on the street is that Travis used to race BMX (back in the day) and has always had a soft spot for the PK Ripper.
