Model C gets coverage in Complex mag

16 08 2011

An interview that Sunday Bikes’ Jim Cielencki did recently with Complex magazine has just come out.  And while the intent of the article was to talk about  the 2011 Model-C Pro, Jim also took the opportunity to talk about the history of the Model-C, the geometry and the different models available in the Sunday lineup (including the Wave-C).

Explaining how he convinces people to give the Model-C a try, Jim says:

I feel like a drug dealer, because when someone goes ‘oh, there’s the 24,’ I put it in their hands and they ride it, and most people have judged it and they’ve discounted it or have a negative opinion of it, but they ride it and they understand. Because there’s never been anything like this. They don’t have anything to go off of. They get on and they go ‘Oh, OK, I get it’.

Great to see some mainstream coverage of what’s going on in the world of 24″ BMX. Check it out here.

(Bonus info: The interview was done by Russ Bengtson, the guy behind the hugely entertaining, but now defunct, SPRFLS blog.)

14 09 2010

Sunday Bikes continues to step things up in the 24″ world with two (yes, two!) versions of the Model-C set for release in their 2011 lineup.

The Model-C EX

Designed as a low-cost option for the first-time 24″ bike buyer it still packs plenty of punch with some great aftermarket parts. It has the proven Model C Plus 4 geometry and is great option for those riders that don’t have the cash to build up a frameset from scratch.

It features:

  • New Sunday Word Bubble grips
  • Twisted PC pedals,
  • 24″ Aitken and Path tires
  • OdysseyV3 cassette rear hub.

It has a cro-mo downtube, headtube and dropouts.  There are two color options: matte gray and red. Different graphics and sticker kits for each color option. (Priced at about $519 US)

Model -C PRO

This is Sunday’s top-of-line 24″ complete and it looks the part!

One of the best spec’d completes on the market. It features:

  • Odyssey CFL stem
  • Twombolt cranks
  • Evo II brakes
  • Monolever
  • V3 cassette hub
  • Vandero 2 front hub
  • New 24″ Odyssey Quadrant rims.

Full cro-mo frame, forks and bars. This will handle just about anything you can throw at it. (Priced at about $799.99 US).

Top tube sizes for both the EX and the PRO are 21.25″.
