Considering Sunday grave digger, thoughts?

Looking @ a 2011 Sunday Aaron Ross ex grave green, thoughts, opinions?  Any idea on the weight?  Will be used lightly on bike paths with my kids so I don't need something heavy duty, I would prefer a semi light bike.  And yes I need this like fre*king hole in my head wink

Re: Considering Sunday grave digger, thoughts?

i really like Sunday Bikes.
i would be more worried about that bike being to light. i rode the orange crush bike and it was almost to light.
i guess it to be 25 lbs. Beside Sunday comes with better components than average. cool
BUY IT!

Re: Considering Sunday grave digger, thoughts?

So anyone care to enlighten me to as why the "bonus" bikes are so frowned upon?  Or people just being bike snobs?....

Re: Considering Sunday grave digger, thoughts?

Here's the specs on that bike.

http://www.sundaybikes.com/catalog/comp … n-ross-ex/

Personally I don't like bonus/complete bikes because they're made with inferior components and sometimes inferior metals for the frame/fork/bars. But that's my opinion, and if you're somewhat starting out, or just going down bike paths with your kids, I'd say it's a decent deal. Especially if you're paying $400 for it. They retail for more.

Pop tubes, not caps

Would you like a Fat Tire, Big Sprocket, or Short Rear End. Pick two.

Re: Considering Sunday grave digger, thoughts?

as a complete they are better -imo
tons of odyssey parts (unbranded even). if you'll notice non-pintch cranks- a step up. the weakest part is the brakes (that most kids trash right off the bat)
i forgot to mention the wave down tube is neato also big_smile

The one I'm looking @ is used, but spotless.

Re: Considering Sunday grave digger, thoughts?

I think that you could probably find one for closer to 300 if you looked hard enough. 400 seems steep to me if there is no shipping involved. That bike won't break under a kid, it will last until they outgrow it. It's a good product, not top of the line for pro riding, but a very good product. For a kids bike, it is an excellent bike.

He said it's for bike paths with the kids.  Perfect for that.  Most people don't need full top of the line bikes.  It'll hold up to a good bit of thrashing before anything falls apart.  Sunday completes have nice wheels and tires so they will ride well.  The geometry is great and they look dope.  Get it!


ride your bike until it breaks.

Yup, when your older less weight means easier pedaling wink.  And don't worry I have a heavy DJ bike, I just don't ride it neutral
