That’s a really good looking bike.  Classic Model-C all the way.  I love the chrome bars on it.

Hell yea that Fit cruiser was awesome in the trails. That was the only one I owned but every so often thought about getting another one. I still have the CR24 in "My Bikes" on here I believe. I saw when you posted it for sale and it looked dialed the way you had it set up.

Oh wait, I think I've gotten you confused with cmc4130 over there at bikeguide.  Once I saw your other bikes I recognized a bunch of them.  You're another dude that's rocked an original enduro stem on a bunch of bikes.  I love that stem.  You had some Standard and DK race bikes that I thought looked really rad too. 

I grabbed the CR24 last night and snapped a shot.  Needs to have the cobwebs dusted off and the tires aired up so I can ride it.

Haha yea there were a few that had similar usernames. I love that enduro stem and I still have it on my current bike as well. Shame they changed it on the V2. Powers Bike Shop has a polished 52mm one in stock on their site and J&R's has a few 55mm reach ones as well.

Picture of the CR24 won't show sad

Re: Let's see your New School Street 24 inch!

BG reunion!

So, I'm trying out 9" bars and dropping the stem on my Liquid.
It's kind of odd, but rides 'lighter' than with the 8.375"s I had on previously.  Still need to put in some time to see if I like it.
Here's how it is currently set up.

What do you guys think?  Too tall?  I'm still on the fence.  If it rides good, the 9"s are staying.
Next thing is some bigger tires.  Something in the  2.1-2.2 range.  Any suggestions?

Re: Let's see your New School Street 24 inch!

OK, first thing, that bike looks awesome.  The frame color really does it.

How tall are you?  I actually like the feeling of lower bars on my cruisers.  My liquid has 7.5's with a challenger V2 stem and a 1/4 inch spacer under the stem.  The headtubes were shorter on the V1's Liquids, so the spacer kind of makes up for that.  It's really all down to personal preferance, but I feel like I can bunnyhop higher with the shorter bars and manuals are less twitchy. 

The 8's I have on my custom Stout feel really tall with the short back end.  Not necessarily bad, though, just really tall.

Those Liquid V2's are so badass.  Made in the US by Solid iirc?

Oh, and I really like the S&M Trackmark 24x2.1 tires.  They're relatively light, cheap, grippy, and in stock most of the time.  There are some other good tires out there like the Tioga FS100's, but they're nearly impossible to find.  If you're more into dirt tires, the Kenda K-rads come in a whole bunch of sizes too.

Re: Let's see your New School Street 24 inch!

Thanks!

I'm 5'10", but my bar height on all my bikes has been going up as bigger bars became available.  My main ride, is a modern frame 21", with 13.25" chainstay and 9.25" bars on a top load stem.
I actually prefer a high bars, short rear, and low BB set up.  I feel it 'pops' more when you push forward to get the rear wheel up on hops.  I also have a bad back from years of skateboard abuse...  My cruiser bars have gone from 8" to 8.373", and now 9".  I actually think 8.75" would be perfect.

Yeah, I think Liquids were on the tail end of Solid's BMX frame building era.  Definitely stoked to have one!

Trackmarks are top of the list for me due to size and availability also.  They also remind me of the old Revenge tires which were awesome.

Nah, it's a garage micro I built.  Kinda hard to ride because the ceiling is really low, but also pretty fun.

I'm in Raleigh every day. I work here. I work over by the Crabtree Park and the Crabtree trails, out by the Airport.

Lots of people here where I work ride, not all BMX. We are so close the the greenway, that everybody has bikes.

I'd love to get together and ride around Raleigh. There are a couple other dudes around here too, but most are around Charlotte. We have a ride up there every so often.

Jump in this thread if you want. Most all of the NC boys hang out in there...

This thread has really tailed off with 22s taking over the last few years.
But I'm back in the game with this dirtbike
I regret selling the one I had.
