The Hundreds X Shadow Collab 26″ Cruiser

6 05 2019

The Hundreds X The Shadow Conspiracy 26″ BMX double top tube cruiser definitely has got that 80s vibe going on.

However, despite that new wave veneer there’s some modern-day niceties to deliver a smooth ride you’d expect from a contemporary 26″ BMX cruiser.

The signature Shadow interlock chain is just one of the modern touches to this old-school-ish cruiser.

Yet, at the same time it also sports a chrome frame, padset and a sprinkling of gold anno so you know there is more than a passing nod to the 80s era.

(And, before you ask, it does feature a full cro-mo frame, fork and handlebar too. Double-wall rims are also part of the package.)

Geo-wise, you’re looking at the following:

  • Headtube: 72 degrees
  • Seat Tube: 73 degrees
  • Top Tube: 22.0”
  • Chain Stay: 16.0”
  • Stand Over: 14.75”

For the rest of the specs: visit The Hundreds site.

 

There’s also a throwback jersey, hoodie, cap and tour shirt from the same collab if you’re interested. (But don’t sleep on it, a couple of the items have already sold out).

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go listen to A Flock of Seagulls.

Your pad or mine?

11 01 2018

I don’t want to say I told you so…but I kinda told you so.

Well, maybe I didn’t so much as tell…but maybe I asked the question:

“Padsets: poised for a comeback?”

And if not the entire padset…maybe just the crossbar pad.

In that prescient post, I noted my own journey that culminated in me digging up a cross-bar pad to run on my bike.

But it’s not just me who’s holding a torch for the crossbar pad.

Shawn Mac is rocking one proudly these days on his 2018 MAC Signature Complete bike.

And now The Shadow Conspiracy is jumping into the crossbar pad game!

They just introduced a limited edition crossbar pad. (Only 50 sets exist).

According to Shadow, it’s a”callback to classic race pads. [It] features a velcro closure and a custom camo crow print.”

Friends, it’s starting to look like we might be at the cusp of a crossbar pad renaissance.

Remember, you heard it here first!
