    Hmm, it's a bmx cruiser, so you're gonna have to stand and it only has a rear brake. My guess is not so good.

    i rode 1 around the bike shop parking lot...i thought it looked cool & it was easy to kind of "flick" it around but when it came down to it i felt the same as onlycrimson regarding the practicality of rear brake only on trails & got a stout. there was a guy who posted a while back in a couple of the stout threads that he has a big ripper if you can find him to ask about it.

    True statement. I had a front brake installed on mine and rode it on lots of trails. It's fun, but far from forgiving. Very stiff and rigid, built for BMX.

    Wow that vid is crazy yet somwhat cool at the same time. Such a big bike to do those kinds of things on. Not sure what brand it is but it looks to be similiar to a Fixie/track bike thats setup for BMX. Urban commuter Something like the Redline Urbis, SE DC PK Ripper, Volume Creedance etc etc....

    As far as the Big Ripper goes? Big mans BMX not a singletrack lol Stout is a different thing compared to the Big ripper. You may be able to single track a stout by changing its wheels Best bet for single track from SE bikes is one of their Lager, Premium Ale, Draft etc.

    Take off that rear brake and you will be the only bike on the mountain that can do mad barspins. That's the reason to buy right there.

    Pair0dimes...how did you put a front brake on your big ripper? the landing gear fork doesn't have any brake mounts. i found a pk ripper that i really like but don't even want to ride on pavement without front brake so am about to walk away from it since i can not figure out a way to install one.
    please tell me how so i can buy that bike.

    If its like the standard 20" landing gear fork, there should be a hole just below were your lower headset race sits. A bmx ( flat land freestyle) brake should bolt right up. http://www.danscomp.com/products.php...=BRAKESCALIPER
    not sure how well it would work with such a big wheel?
    Enjoy every ride!

    Yeah dude. M-dub nailed it. Hole in the fork allows a brake mount. It really wasn't an issue fitting it on there. Typical BMX U-brake.

    ah ha! you're right, there was a few times there where it looked like he was coasting, but afterwatching again, he lifts the rear off the ground. pretty sweet.

    I really like the look of it. But then again I grew up riding bmx in the early 80's. I wonder how my Access would handle with those bars and stem? Hmmmmmm.

    Its not a fixie. Look at :51 when he is hitting the log jump. Tons of coasting! He stops pedaling everytime he hops or jumps. Cant stop like that on a fixie. Ya he pedals backwards a bunch, you have to on a free wheel also. Watch it again and he is coasting everywere. Not trying to take anything away from him ripping, just saying.
    Enjoy every ride!

    look at :51 again, he pops the rear wheel off the ground, thats why it looks like hes coasting. also does it several more times during the video and it looks like he stops pedaling but really hes popping the rear wheel up, im guessing to get his timing right for upcoming stunts

    dood. it's fixed.
    zero coasting, anywhere in the vid. he does lift the rear wheel and skid to scrub speed, though. the most obvious is probably 2:04. you can't skid on a brakeless bike with a freewheel. it's easy, however, to stop a fixed wheel that's not on the ground, even with a 3.25:1 drivetrain. that's why fixed riders hop to skid, like Tom does in the vid. ever ridden one?
    google Tom Lamarche if you can't tell from the video. fixed freestyle is what he does.
    just saying.

    back on topic... I learned to "mountain bike" starting on my 20" flatland bike. would I do it again? no. it's kind of a "right tool for the right job" thing to me. it's sort of like watching guys work against themselves to do boring freestyle tricks on bikes totally ill suited to the purpose, just because it's trendy... until a guy like TL comes along and drops your jaw. I'm not knocking fixed freestyle at all, but it's mostly boring to watch compared to people outfitted with the right equipment. Next we'll see guys on 700c fixies w/25s trying to ride Whistler and making an "epic" video about it.
    Danny Macaskill throws bigger, way cooler looking freestyle tricks than Tom, probably because he's on a bike built for the purpose, not one that works against him.
    that SE is more suited to mtb than a 20" flatland bike because it's got larger wheels, but the geometry is going to force you to stand... a lot, i think... and the ride will be really harsh.

    almost bought the O.M. Flyer (old man), 26in bmx cruiser. Its was butt ugly Candy red with gold wheels and tires.

    @bighit: cool site. lovin that crooks & castles om flyer. saw that a when I was researching them a couple months ago (never heard of crooks & castles clothing, guess Im not cool enough). They have one of those quadangles at the LBS. kinda reminds me of a torker from back in the day.

    Not using the right equipment is part of the fun, though Is a road bike with skinny knobbies the right bike for mud and obstacles? No. Is cyclocross fun? Ask cyclocrossers.

    On a purely practical level, a fixie is really the wrong tool for *any* cycling job, which sorta makes it fair game to use for whatever

    hey proline69...you are the guy with the big ripper i was referring to in post #3

    what do you use it for? do you do any bike park riding or urban tricks or jumping?

    those are nice pads on your ripper & i like the brake levers on your stout, what are they?

    anyway...here's my pk ripper i been riding while recuperating from a couple of pretty nasty mtb hurts i got right on top of each other that forced me off the trails for awhile. it was a biatch getting used to skinny tires. at 1st i mostly rode it ss but finally i am catching onto fixed riding. can skid, hop & skip a little now & almost do a real trackstand. watch out tom lamarche
