TwoFourFlat Part 4 drops this December

23 11 2012

The 4th installment of the TwoFourFlat video series is set to drop December 9th.

Featuring Danny Sirkin and Joe Cicman, these vids never disappoint.

Whether it’s throwing down serious flatland moves on a Specialized 24 or breaking out a 26″ Volume Sledgehammer just to see what it can do, these guys know how to mix things up to keep it fresh.

And it looks like the guys are back at it again. This time on a Sunday Wave-C.

In the lead up to the release date, Danny and Joe have put together a couple of trailers to whet our appetite.

The second is my favorite of the two.

Can’t wait to check this out!





Specialized grassroots rider rips on P24

Check out this Austin local on the Specialized grassroots team tearing things up on a Specialized P24!

Quality footage of 9th Street and some other good stuff.  Not 100% sure on the name but I believe it’s Thomas Williams. (Can any of you Austin locals confirm?)

Enjoy!

Vodpod videos no longer available.




A little 24″ flatland for you

17 05 2011

If you haven’t been on the Cruiser Revolution Facebook page in a couple of days, you may have missed this cool flatland video collaboration posted by Joe Cicman and Danny Sirkin.

Eagle-eyed readers may remember Danny Sirken from a previous post, Be still my heart…flatland on a 24″ bike!  (And if you’re a BMX nerd, you’ll also know that he was featured in a BIO in the last issue of GO Magazine).

Looks like he’s still going strong, this time on a Specialized P24.

Filmer Joe Cicman is no slouch himself, just check out this video featuring his flatland skills.

Pretty stoked on this video…especially the pinky squeaks (0:43), can’t get enough of those!





Specialized steps it up with the P24

27 10 2010

As you may recall from a previous post, where Specialized debuted the new P24 at Sea Otter, Specialized has reentered the BMX world.

And it looks like they’re serious about it this time.

The P24, which we featured a prototype of  earlier, has been out for a little while now and it looks like they’ve done a good job of spec’ing out this complete bike. Its got great geometry, Reynolds cro-mo construction (with a 21.6 top tube) and nice, big 7 1/2″ X 29″  bars. The components also look solid and it’s a fairly light at the 26 pound mark.

Buddy's personal P24 with Cruiser Revolution stickers

How does it ride?

As luck would have it, cruiserrevolution.com reader, Buddy,  recently picked  up a P24 for himself and shared his thoughts on it.

His first impressions?

Manuals like crazy….Went to our trails today,what a blast, like a rocket…

When asked how it compares to other bikes he’s ridden:

It feels better than any of those bikes to me. I think it’s mostly the size and geometry fits me very well, perfect, (I’m 6 feet tall).

Based on the specs (and Buddy’s feedback), I think we may have another contender to consider when shopping for a new complete.





Specialized debuts new P24 at Sea Otter

5 05 2010

Specialized is jumping back into the BMX scene with its new P-series of bikes. On display at the recent Sea Otter MTB event, the P24 model looks like it took its influence from some of the current crop of 24s that have entered the market in the last year or so.

It’s built with Reynolds tubing and has next-to-no graphics (although that might be due to it being in the prototype stages). And yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, that’s a Sunday fork that  was being used to build up the bike for testing.

Here’s a more close up look:

One of my first thoughts when I came across this was…why debut this at Sea Otter? A MTB event? It’s a BMX bike after all. Then after thinking about it for a while, it seemed to make more sense.

Whenever I’m riding somewhere that has a lot of riders with “urban/DJ” MTBs, there always seems to be a questions and interest regarding my 24. Many seem unaware of the 24″ BMX option.

Maybe MTBers are the great cross-over market for 24s…if reading the ads for  Urban DJ bikes are any indication, it just might be. Almost to the one, the ads will say something like, “BMX-inspired” or “BMX-style” in describing the bike and the components. Maybe the answer for the people reading these ads is to actually get a BMX bike.

Specialized might be on to something with this approach.
