I'm 44 years old; I was a racer in the 80s and got back into BMX about a year-and-a-half ago. I wanted to get back on the track and bought a race 24" bike, but found that my work and life schedule was not compatible with my local track times. So I sold it and bought a street 24" bike. I rode that a lot, but ultimately decided I wanted a 20" bike. So I sold it and bought the start of what appears below. After a month or so of wheeling and dealing for parts, I finally feel comfortable enough posting my ride here. This is a budget build but I'm a huge Sunday fan, so there's lots of Sunday stuff. Lemme know what you think!











Frame: 2008 Premium Duo. 21" TT
Forks: 2012 Sunday Morning, from an orange soda Aaron Ross Pro complete
Bars: 2012 Sunday Triumph XL, from an orange soda Aaron Ross Pro complete
Stem: Sunday Freeze top load
Headset: FSA Impact
Grips: Haro
Barends: Haro
Lever: None yet
Cranks: Poverty Carmi
Bottom Bracket: generic sealed
Pedals: Black Label plastic
Sprocket: Generic 25t
Chain: KMC
Brakes: None yet
Pads: None
Seat: Premium railed
Seatpost: Odyssey Convertible from a Sunday orange soda Aaron Ross Pro complete
Seatclamp: Premium
Rear Wheel: Alienation rim, generic sealed hub, 14mm axle
Front Wheel: Alienation rim, generic sealed hub, 3/8" axle
Tires: Premium CK 2.0 front and rear
Extras: None

I used to ride a Mirraco 20Forty, but now I ride a Sunday-ed out Premium and I dig it!

I'm 6'3, so I dig it. I'll like it more when I get rid of that chunky Premium railed seat and replace it with a lower-profile pivotal.

Yeah, as my skills started coming back I was getting frustrated with how... cumbersome the 24" was.
