Todd Lyons: keeping SE Bikes cool

19 11 2009

With Todd Lyons leading the charge,  SE Bikes has managed to bridge the distance between old school and new school…offering bikes that appeal to the rider looking to relive his youth to the young rider just getting into BMX.  They’ve also hooked up with some cool companies to put out limited-edition bikes that are definitely some of the coolest looking bikes out there.

You’d think that with so much on his plate as SE’s brand manager (and so many years in the sport), the guy would become jaded or burnt out. But that’s not the case. When you take a look at his posts and his riding shots, you can tell he feels like a kid in a candy store…because he might just have the best job in BMX.





Sweet custom SE Quadangle cruiser

2 09 2009

Every once in a while you come across something that makes you grin from ear to ear…this is one of those finds. Surfing the web one day, I came across this sweet custom SE Quadangle cruiser in one of Vintage BMX’s forums. Talk about retro-cool!

24in custom quadangle

The owner, who goes by the handle, “rockabillyjay” describes his modifications as follows:

I added 990 mounts, cable stops, turned the forks into “Standing Gear,” clearanced the bottoms for some big pegs  ( I wear a size 13) , made the top tube platform, and of course..a coaster brake tab. I didn’t do the rear frame standers since they always got in my way…and this was a looptail anyway.

To say rockabillyjay did a great job customizing his 24″ Quadangle is such an understatement. I think he may have set the bar for a lot of the new retro-cool builds popping up.

And every time I look at this I get a flashback to that old Freestylin’ cover from the ’80s with Todd Anderson jumping the car full of SE dudes.  Awesome!
