Great choice.  It's so hard to choose an SE bike these days.  They are all so cool.

Re: 2009 SE Racing Big Ripper 29

Must be nice to have a LBS that is still into BMX. I have to drive about 40 minutes and pass 3 or 4 other bike shops to get to the one that has a few BMX products in stock. They have all the kayaks and tents you could ever want and if you are into roadbikes and MTB's you're hooked up. They do have a few complete Redlines and DB's but nothing too special. They have 1 Redline Proline XL and a DB Reactor that have been there for over a year. This is the same LBS where I got my brand new, never built, frame only, 2003 Redline Proline Team... this year, lol. If you want anything else you have to order it. Oh well, it's something I guess.
The Rippers are sweet by the way, big_smile

Re: 2009 SE Racing Big Ripper 29

Excellent pick-up, bud.

You get any more SE's, I might have a rival.tongue

Are you planning any track time on it?

my friend's shop has one still in the box. It is a huge bike and a small shop so he is hesitant to build it.

That's bad! SE Racing is the only maker that gives you new school with that old school look.

Not anymore!I snagged that sucker!
Shipping was a little pricey,but I doubt I woulda found one locally.

Sweet bikes!

And yes it has more of a BMX feel than MTB.

Re: 2009 SE Racing Big Ripper 29

I rode one last week at a party / fundraiser for our local bike kitchen. Rode great and just so smooth over bumps and stuff. Turning took a bit of getting used to but it did really feel like a BMX and not some chopper or cruiser. Light too.

I was impressed with the price and the parts list for a complete bike... often complete bikes have the odd bit of gear here and there that you want to replace immediately. Not so for the big ripper. Sweet.

Re: 2009 SE Racing Big Ripper 29

One you ride it I'm sure you all will love it , its actually very light and feels very much like a big BMX bike - pdogg hell i wish Skyway would make a 26" wheel so i can put it on my OM cuiser , and a 29er most definately out of the question - but yes it would set off these 29ers .

Re: 2009 SE Racing Big Ripper 29

maybe aerospoke makes a 700c wide wheel???


In the 80's, I was riding the streets with Eric (Hutch), Jamie (GT), Jody (JMC), & Ronnie (Diamond Back). North Hollywood, CA to The Teen Center in Van Nuys, CA. The best LBS was The Pedal Shop, where I bought my first & only JMC frame, forks, & parts for my very first build...

Really dont need wide , actually the same diameter of the Stouts wheels , but i dont know if you would be able to abuse them i thought the Aerospoke was more of an OnRoad wheel . But definatly would look KILLER .

Re: 2009 SE Racing Big Ripper 29

I can't even imagine the flex 29" Tuffs would have. It'd be like riding on a gyroscope.

That being said, the bike handles the track REALLY well. Thanks again for the oportunity to take some laps on it, Maddawg!

Yes I do believe Aerospoke is a OnRoad wheel. They have some nice dual color schemes for the Aerospokes...

What I meant by wide is the width of the rim...I believe the mtb 700c rims are a little wider and 700c road tires are a little more narrow from what I was told from LBS's. I put more abuse on my 700x23c Alex Daze deep v wheels which hold true more than the stout stock wheels. For some reason I can bunny hop and get a little rad on the road rims without them going out of wack...been riding them for over a year now and they are still true...(sucks admin deleted my Felt Curbside w/ 700c wheels for no reason...it's what i use the most and gives me more flashbacks of riding my JMC Andy Patterson than any bike I have currently)...my stout 29'er wheels go out of wack just riding it down to the local market??? Already have serviced them twice.

I've heard of Alex having a wide deep v prototype and that Velocity rims just came out with a wide deep v.

Does anybody know if you can put mtb tires on a road wheels like Aerospokes or deep v single speed rims?
