Checking in on the 24s

28 09 2016

The 24s may not get the same love as the 20s in the BMX section of Interbike but there was still plenty to check out this year.

Stolen featured the chrome version of their Saint XLT. The geometry has been tweaked/improved this year so an already great bike has gotten even better.

We The People showcased another favorite, the 24″ Atlas. The added “Wow” factor of the candy apple red paint job for 2017 was in full effect.  Looking good.

Haro also got in the act with their entry-level Downtown 24. Those look-at-me green tires are hard to miss.

SE showcased the metallic red version of their lineup mainstay, the So Cal Flyer.

Free Agent featured two 24″ cruisers. The entry-level race cruiser, the Ambush 24.

And their more freestyle-y 24″ Ratio.

By the way, I would love to see the Ratio get a bit more of an update –beyond the cosmetic — in the future.  (Those bars are looking mighty short for one thing.)

Sadly Redline wasn’t at the show (I was hoping to check out the Asset 24 and the updated PL-26) and GT didn’t feature a 24.

But GT did have something else that was super cool to check out.

More on that later.

17 06 2016

SE Bikes just dropped some “first look” pics of the 2017 So Cal Flyer…and they’re looking good!

A perennial favorite in the SE lineup, the 24″ 2017 So Cal Flyer is available in two colorways:

Polished/Blue

and

Metallic Red

Definitely some nice looking completes for a great price (only $429 US)

Watch for these to start hitting SE dealers in the next couple months.





Sneak Peek: select 2016 SE Bikes

2 07 2015

Todd Lyons (of SE Bikes) is slowly lifting the veil on the 2016 lineup of SE cruisers.

For the last week or so, he’s been showing bits and pieces of some of the bikes. But just a couple days ago he showed what at least two of the cruisers in the lineup would look like.

First up, the 24″ So Cal Flyer. Sporting an old school look, it features a retro stem, Flyer seat, and a classic SE Racing padset. Some gold graphics round out the retro vibe on this one.

Next up, the 26” Quadangle Looptail.

If you’re old school, this will definitely be your cup of tea. It features the unique double downtube frame that the Quadangle made famous so many years ago, along with a looptail rear end.  The black, gold, and chrome colorway (and checkered pads!) make this look like it came out of a time machine from early days of BMX.

Lyons has been dropping hints of the new lineup on the regular, so stay tuned for more updates. I’ll be sharing them on the Facebook page whenever they pop up. From the hints he’s been sharing so far, I think we’re in store for a lot more cool stuff.
