Our Ian Schwartz frame from 2009 was ranked the 20th most progressive frame in BMX history according to ESPN. Ian’s vision was to add a pivotal mount to a Second Wave frame thus eliminating the seat post and seat clamp. This helped usher in the low seat era in BMX. The pivotal mount was the most obvious feature on the frame, but the whole Second Wave frame was refined and smoothed out for a cleaner look compared to previous versions of Sunday frames. Go check out the rest of the list on ESPN right HERE. Check out the promo for Ian’s frame after the break.
Dig Magazine stopped by our office to take some photos of the more interesting things we have on display. Learn some of the inside stories and history of the frames shown in the photo above. Check it out at this LINK.
Lee Dennis‘ part in Primo’s Nice Try video was just posted online. Super fast and super tech! The last 30 seconds is nothing but amazing. Plus his all blue Second Wave kit looks great.

UPDATE: 2nd Waves are all gone!!!
The newest Weezer album entitled Raditude came out in stores yesterday and guess what? The whole band is riding Sunday frames on the back cover! Rivers Cuomo is in the middle on the ocean blue Funday, Brian Bell is on the green Second Wave, Scott Shriner is on the red Wave and Buffalo native Patrick Wilson is bunnyhopping on the silver Model C. None of this could’ve been possible without Mark Lewman and DJ Greyboy. I know we were all stoked when we found out the news this morning!
We are going Eric Lichtenberger over load this week! Here he is double tire ride down a long, round rail from our Up, Up and Away premiere trip to Boston in May. This is the print version, the footage was in his September web EDIT. If you were at Interbike then most likely you were able to grab this as a poster. Otherwise you’ll have to use this as a wallpaper by downloading these links: Wide Screen or Standard Monitor. Photo by Jeff Allen.
BMX Feed stopped by our booth yesterday and uploaded this video. In it, you can get a brief look at our Model C frame and a closer look at our 3rd Wave Prototype. You can watch it by clicking the photo above or you can also download it.

Stephen Savage spent a month over here in the USA. We set him up with the blue Second Wave kit that he is riding in the photo. This replaces the original Second Wave prototype that he’s been riding since June of 2008. That might have been the most traveled Sunday frame out there. Either way Stephen’s back home in South Africa and he sent me this photo along with a description of the spot. Here is what he said,
“This spot is one of my favourite spots in Cape Town. You have to roll down this hill to a blind corner and as you carve to get to the back you have to hop a pavement. Its crazy and sketchy and if you fall on this back its like a cheese grater! But that’s what makes it so fun! There are always these little neighbourhood kids hanging around. Its chaos! I had to ask some lady to move her car so I could ride it and she was like “with pleasure”. Such a cool area, i love Cape Town!”
Stephen couldn’t have described it more perfect. The setup, the situation and everything else around it can make a spot and trick seem that much more amazing. This might be favorite update in awhile. Wayne Rieche shot this photo! Great photo!
