I mad a thread last week about building a new bike, but it appears the soundwave is a better deal.
Id I build a bike Im not sure I would go all that high end. However even with lower end parts the price is at the soundwave complete anyways.

Does anyone is the the soundwave complete the V3 Frame? The specs dont say.

I am doing/learning whips, jjumps, and pump the skate park. is this bike over kill for what Im doing?

Does anyone know if complete bikes loike the soundwave go on sale around the holidays? Im in no rush to buy it. Does it get much cheaper?



Thanks!

I have a 2014 Sunday Soundwave V1 and it's badass. Buy it.

It is the v3, according to the Sunday site: [link]

I treat bikes as tools; why would you get something of inferior quality if you're going to use it regularly? I wouldn't say it's overkill but a bike, like any tool, is only worth what the owner gets out of it.

Riding a well designed and put together bike is a pleasure. If you can afford it, why not?

If you can hold out a month or two, BMX has pretty good Black Friday deals. It might be worth it to wait

As far as a 2019 Soundwave complete? That's a badass bike. IMO overbuilt is just built enough when it comes to BMX.

Keep your eyes peeled for deals on Ebay & such. They regularly have 10,20, 25% off deals for one or two days only. Sometimes it's an app use only sale, etc... but I've gotten some great deals on already cheaper priced stuff & thru bike shops/retailers with good reps.

I can get it 12% off now, I know on labor day it was 15% off. 25% off would be insane!

12% is a good deal too. 25% is relatively rare & sometimes doesn't include the items you really want. It's a crap shoot. On the plus side, if you get it now, you can start riding it now. If you wait until Black Friday/Cyber Monday, you MAY get a deal, or it might not be an item that's "on sale". AND, you won't get to ride it much at that time of year unless it's at an indoor location.

If you live in Omaha, don't you guys get insane winters? If you can get 12% off now, go for it. Get a month of riding in before you hibernate.

Ill be able to ride through december. I plan to bundle up and go hit the skate parks while they are empty.

For a brake get a,

Front Brake:
-Brake- Odyssey EVO 2.5
-Cable- Odyssey Slic
-Lever- Odyssey Monolever

Rear brake/ gyro:
-Brake- Odyssey EVO 2.5
-Lower cable- a dual power cable would be ideal, but a standard Y Cable would be easiest
-Gyro- Odyssey GTX-S
-Upper Cable- Odyssey M2 cable (buy the Odyssey M2 lever and the M2 cable comes with it


Brake- https://www.albes.com/odyssey-evo-2-5-brake/

Levers- https://www.albes.com/odyssey-m2-lever-medium/

https://www.albes.com/odyssey-monolever-lever-medium/

Gyro stuff- https://www.albes.com/odyssey-bottom-gyro-cable/

https://www.albes.com/odyssey-sealed-gyro-gtx-s-aluminum/

I would personally reccomend buying from Empire BMX, but i know you'll be buying from Albes...

Yep, i went cheap as possible when I first started riding and quickly found out there is no point. Buy the highest quality parts that fit the specs you are looking for.

And yes, I believe it is the v3.

Dude thanks a bunch for those links. I just get a 15% of code from dans comp but it appears they dont sell this bike. Why do you recommend empire BMX? Will they price match?

Dans comp is a bit iffy at the moment. They dont actually stock everything they show on the site. Financially it makes sense to not have stock on the floor taking up space and not making any profit but it is very inconvenient for the customer to have to wait. I have not ordered from them in a long while so I cant say this issue hasnt been corrected but thats mostly why people are recommending other sites. Dans used to be the go-to.

Good point man. I did confirm ables has 12 in stock.

Honestly the only things the 2019 soundwave complete skimps on is the stem, sprocket and brakes...the rest is top shelf. About 100-200 bucks extra and you could have a 100 percent top of the line bike by switching those parts out. Even so, it is an amazing quality bike.

I’d buy one if the standover wasn’t so high

No problem!! I wouldn't buy from Dans. They've got WAY downhill in the past few months..

I reccomend Empire as ive ordered shit from them for like a year and a half now and they haven't gotten any of my orders wrong... plus it's like a 3 hour drive from my house so my stuff gets here in like a day or two lol

They are 2 hours away from me and used to be my favorite for any part..even if it cost a little bit more there I would buy it because of the convenience but now they fucking blow ass...albes is my shit now since they are just a state away either that or Ebay
