The Two Four Flat crew is at it again! This one is a bike check with Danny Sirkin and then even more flatland with Prasheel Gopal and Mark Kuhlmann. These guys do bar flips, cliffhangers and backpacker whips on the 24″ Model C bikes. Check out more info on our 24″ stuff after the break.
Have you ridden this thing at House Park in Austin? You have to take off early and pull out far enough to clear the bars on either side. It also narrows and goes over-vert. Our 24″ bikes aren’t just for cruising, you can actually take it to tough places like this. Model C complete bikes and Wave C frame sets available now! Jim Cielencki on the bike and Mike Gonzalez behind the lens.
Look what else just came in stock, brand new 24umph XL bars which are half inch taller 24″ BMX bars. The direction of 24″ BMX bar height is going up. The original 24umph bars dramatically changed 24″ BMX bar height back in 2008 and the new 24umph XL bars continue this phenomenon. Running a taller set up on your Model C improves your bunnyhop, allows the front end to come up easier, gives more room and just makes things easier.
Backsweep: 12 degrees
Upsweep: 4 degrees

Ride your spots today because they might be gone tomorrow. This Wave-C carve on this narrow tight tranny in Austin has been rendered unrideable right now. The building has been vacant for a long time, but not anymore. This photo is from a month ago and I remember saying that I should come back for it. Luckily, I did it that day.
Check out the Gif of this image in the Sunday banner and an interview with me at Old Guys Who Ride right HERE.
ESPN had me answer some really good questions about the upcoming 2010 Sunday Complete Bike line which is scheduled to be in shops next April. We will be offering 3 different Funday 20″ models along with a complete version of our 24″ Model C. Look for a more thorough description of the whole line on our site in the next week or so. In the interview, I talk about the Funday PRO bike which is not shown in the above pictures. You’ll see it next week! Tell your shop to check these out too!
This is Jon Faure in the air aboard his Model C. He just built it up last week and is trying to sell off his other bike as we speak. I did an interview with him about getting his Model C and the switch to it from his MTB DJ. Plus there’s a special twist to the story. Read the interview after the break.
This is awesome! Check out Dan Sirkin doing some flatland moves on his Model F….I mean Model C! Hitchhickers, wheelchairs, steamrollers and is that a forward Rope-e-roni? When he sent me the previous photos of his bike, he said he probably won’t do any flatland on it. But there’s no way to resist trying out all the tricks you know on this bike. He said “Just about anything is possible. It definitely spins a bit slow because of the big wheels but it holds straight lines and wide circles very well.” Now if we can just get someone to decade out of a wallride. Sounds like a webvideo contest to me!
The Sunday 24″ Model C was introduced at last September’s Interbike to a mix of fanfare and uncertainty. The biggest controversy was its geometry with its much higher bottom bracket and shorter rear as compared to other 24″ cruisers available. It took a lot to explain the ideas behind it as you might have seen in the Model C video edit in March and there’s even an FAQ about the Model C. The goal was to make a 24″ BMX bike that could do all the tricks a 20″ could do. Before the Model C, cruisers were race orientated and the thought of doing tricks on it didn’t really exist. Others in the industry claimed that since they were “a former top cruiser racer” that the Model C wouldn’t work. They basically said we didn’t know what we were doing. Sorry to say, but we’ve been approved by riders through out the world and from companies like We the People and Fit who’ve adapted the Model C’s geometry for their cruiser completes. It has been a great year since the last Interbike and I know it will be another great year with the introduction of our complete Sunday Model C next spring. So, not only can you get a high end frame and fork that is required by a skilled rider, but you will also be able to get started on a 24″ without spending too much money. Check below for some photos of the Model C since last Interbike.
