The SE Bikes OM-Duro: The World's First 27.5+ BMX MTB

Todd Lyons sez:

Hey ya!
I just wanted to let you know that our all-new OM-Duro video is posted. I know that this is not a true BMX bike, but I think that a lot of your readers would get a kick out of seeing the video:



The 27.5+ OM-Duro takes design cues and aesthetics from the legendary OM Flyer BMX bike and mixes in some radical mountain bike upgrades.

I personally brought the first prototype bike home from the SE factory and put it through all types of real-world testing in various California locations. In the video you’ll see trips to Mammoth Mountain, Big Bear, Sheep Hills, Laguna Canyon, street riding, and everywhere in between. This bike is so fun!

I have attached some photos and the link to the bike is below.

Looks like it does everything a BMX bike or a mountain bike can do...  Just not as well.

Re: The SE Bikes OM-Duro: The World's First 27.5+ BMX MTB

I have a Giant Talon 3 27.5 that I absolutely love, The hydraulic discs, rigid frame, and geometry just works so well.

I am not in the market for another bike, but if you make those Low slung BMX bars in 31.8 mm diameter (I think thats what my mtb is) they will sell like hot cakes. I will take a pair now if you can send me the specs (from the looks, i think they are what I want) I am gonna stick with suspension up front for when I want it though!

I am all for oddball stuff, and having fun without any rules.

Re: The SE Bikes OM-Duro: The World's First 27.5+ BMX MTB

cool
I've been considering this bike for a while now. It looks fun--the bmx styling is rad; and the gearing makes it more versatile for all around riding. I love my 80's GT Pacific flyer (bmx cruiser frame with a rear derailleur) because it has the bmx feel and you can ride it all over the place due to the gearing.

The biggest detraction for me is the weight of this rig; (nearly 40 lbs) but I bet its a solid feeling ride.

....The more i think about it...the more my household needs one of these....

Yup... it's a tank, but I bet it rides smooooooooth

They do look like fun, and I think people will enjoy them, but I'm saving my money for a normal 26" MTB.  Even BMX-ified it will weigh at least 10lbs less than this monstrosity.

It is very heavy but you adjust quickly on it.
The tires in my opinion needed to be a bit smaller and no gum wall look, I changed mine to 27.5X4.0 anf like the look now.

Yea that is my concern as well, My Giant Talon 3 with upgraded forks is right around 30lbs... Thats with a 3 ring chainring and derailluer. I am sure if I drop a single speed race face turbine on it I can shave another lb.

Newmidmike, Planet BMX said out of stock on bothe versions of the OM Duro, but my big self needs the XL. Heck my 24 incher is a 22 inch TT,

It's a nice looking bike...But I can't help feel like all they did was slap some BMX cruiser bars on a mountain bike. One upgrade they should include are those neat MTB gyros they have out now, it would make it feel more BMXish.

Re: The SE Bikes OM-Duro: The World's First 27.5+ BMX MTB

I've been taking trips to ride DH-MTB every summer since 2009. I think it's rad that Todd Lyons is showing those trails.  It was interesting to see Mammoth and Big Bear, as I haven't been to those (they look dusty!!). (It was interesting to see the berms with all the pavers.  At Keystone, CO, there's a few sections with pavers, but nothing like that).

In case anyone needs a visual on what 27.5+ means . . . . It's a wider 650b (27.5) rim that allows a fatter (and taller) tire.  The outer inflated-tire diameter ends up being similar to 29".

The OM Duro XL looks like a bunch of fun. These don't have horizontal dropouts though do they?

1. There are shims out there.  I shimmed a 22.2 handlebar into a 25.4 stem. It seemed to work fine.

2.  Or, why not just put a 22.2 bmx stem on your mtb?  I've got one on my dirt jumper.

3. STOUT makes low-rise bmx-cruiser bars with a 25.4 clamp area.  http://www.pinkbike.com/forum/listcomme … tid6148083  I don't know if he'd do a 31.8, but probably yes.
