    So would this “Retrospec” Sully Klunker he considered a Strand BMX Cruiser? [​IMG]
    OR
    What about the “We The People” Avenger? [​IMG]

    You never know, would probably be a foolish impulse at my age, but I do love a new bike OR an old bike.
    Think I saw pictures of an older version that was red which is what drew me in. I vote blue so the blue version would be fine. Quite a difference in price of the two.

    Depending on what you want and what your price point is

    I'm looking at pulling the trigger on one of these Framed Twenty6er

    I like the double top bar design of the two aforementioned bikes. I’m cheap so the Retrospec looks better dollar wise. They are listed for less than half of their previous list price.
    I have one of the Felt Burners in the colors you show. I bought it used. It belonged to a bike shop mechanic and has some upgrades. I felt it was a bargain deal.

    The Avenger is definitely a BMX Cruiser...and that seems to be what the Sully is shooting for as well.

    There was an Avenger for sale locally for almost a couple years...near mint condition...for $550 towards the end (I think he gave up). I was tempted, but, it is a mild steel frame except for the cr-mo downtube. WTP is a real quality bike company, so I don't no why they cheaped out on the Avenger. If you run across a used WTP Champ...that is a nice full 4130 3-bar 26" bike. The Avenger will have much better components than the Sully, which is really just a dept. store quality bike.

    Cap...I have a Framed Twenty9er. Well made frame...crap components.

    If an Avenger came up locally for a decent price, I'd snag one as they are a sharp looking bike. But...price would have to be 'good'.

    Good to know. :thumbsup:

    I figured as much. I have an extra set of dj wheels and some landing gear I'd probably throw on it

    The crank bearings were the first things to go on mine. I think the sealed bearings might have been stamped, 'for display purposes only' :grin:.

    The Retrospec looks to be a more roomy bike. And that would be my preference in a cruiser.

    That Framed 26er just looks like what I'd expect a BMX cruiser to look like. And the 23.5" top tube is a bonus.

    Hopefully my Kona will turn out as nice.. 20190729_204304.jpg but it'll be tough to build it for less money.
