Alex Magallan goes switch for Wallride Wednesday. If you’ve paid attention to Alex’s riding over the years, there’s a good chance that you will see him riding a spot that you’ve never seen before. Here’s some random under a bridge spot that Alex probably found while exploring Tennessee. Photo by Nathan Magallan.
If you’ve been living under a rock then you might not notice that there are so many young kids riding BMX these days. Which is why did a sneak peek of our new 18 ” frame on BMX Groms, a site dedicated to younger BMX riders. Want to be inspired by young BMX rippers then go to that site.
Let’s get back to the new frame. It is a full chromoly 18″ frame called the Radocaster. It will have the same geometry as our Primer 18 complete bike and it will come with hollow dropouts and removable brake mounts. There will also be a full chromoly 18″ fork as well. Look for the frame and fork to be available late summer/early fall.
Look for Saker Cranks to be offered in sizes for 18″ bikes by summer.
Here’s the geometry…
- TOP TUBE LENGTH: 18.5″ TT
(RECOMMENDED FOR RIDERS UNDER 5’5″)
- HEAD TUBE ANGLE: 74.5°
- SEAT TUBE ANGLE: 71°
- CHAINSTAY LENGTH: 11.75”
- BOTTOM BRACKET HEIGHT: 10.35”
- STANDOVER: 7.5”
- TOP TUBE LENGTH: 18.5″ TT
This is our first Sunday Friends frame edition. We’ve always been a brand for people who like to be creative, so it wasn’t a shock that Daniil Andreyevich painted his Wave C 24″ BMX this way. Actually, he had artist, Tori Madisyn, give it this amazing paint job. We aren’t even sure we would put this bike back together because it’s so rad looking. Here’s a full side shot of the frame.
Gary Young will be in Austin, TX this weekend to do a signing for Vans at SXSW. Luckily, it’s at the Barton Creek Mall and now in the chaos of SXSW. Go meet him, get his autograph and if you’re lucky maybe you’ll pick up some free Vans stuff. Check the flyer below.

Going through the list of the Top 12 East Coast Ams on TCU today, it seemed Mark Burnett would be in the list somewhere. So, it was a pleasant surprise to see him listed in the second spot. If you’ve seen him ride, it’s fairly obvious that he would be listed there. He has a full bag of tricks and seems to be adding to it really quickly. Expect big things from Mark in the near future. Watch Mark’s Welcome to Sunday below. Photo Walter Pieringer.31Jan 201423Jan 201413Jan 201431Dec 201320Dec 2013
Did you know that the Primer 18 Complete bike has the shortest chain stay length of all other 18″ BMX bikes on the market today? It’s chain stay measures 11.75″ which is 0.5-1.5″ shorter than all the other brands. This is a HUGE difference to a 10-13 year old.
The chain stay length is measured from the center of the crank spindle to the center of the axle of the rear wheel. This isn’t a standardize measurement and can vary greatly from brand to brand. Over the past 10 years, the lengths have been getting shorter and shorter on 20″ BMX bikes. The short chain stay length makes it easier to lift the front end when jumping and bunnyhopping. A bike that is more maneuverable is more fun and easier to learn on. Choose Wisely!25Nov 2013
