2016 Commonground 24

Similar to their 20 inch brothers, BMX cruisers put the bottom bracket above the axles, and use their same steep head angle. But commonground frames keep you below the axles and behind the front wheel. The ride is more akin to that of modern 26 inch hardtails, which have nearly the same head angle. But there's more to front ends than just red lines and protractors...A bike's "trail" is the distance beween the point at which the front tire touches the ground and the  spot  where an imaginary line, cutting  through the front axle intersects the ground. More trail makes for a forgiving but sluggish feel while less trail offers quickness but sacrifices stability. The commonground offers more responsive steering than 26 inch hardtails,  but remains much more relaxed than a BMX.It's a shame there aren't more 24 inch hardtails out there. They share the relaxed geometry of 26ers, their wheels are stronger and lighter, and they offer more room for riders who want shorter rear ends and, presumably, lower standover. But the only available adequate suspension forks are designed for 26" wheels, which forces the top tube at least an inch higher than it could be. Shortening the length of the fork can help, but will affect the rest of the bike's geometry. The cornerstone of the commonground design is that it maintains a comfortable head angle, but abandons the concept of suspension altogether. The three to five inches of extra clearance makes way for steezier turndowns, tables, cans, you name it.Perhaps most importantly, commonground bikes are made in the USA by FBM. The rider-owned, upstate New York BMX manufacturer embodies the spirit shared among all riders. Our handlebars and forks are made in southern California by equally legendary BMX manufacturer, S&M.

I love these frames. With that slack head angle, it just looks RIGHT. And ready to roast!
Perfecto.


Every Easter, Fiola and Dominguez would exchange greeting cards signed 'Eggy Fiyolkah' and 'Mike Domingeggs'. Not true, but I wish it was.
