Wildman Todd Lyons is always cooking up new BMX treats for fans of the SE Bikes Big Ripper and the Bike Life movement. This time around he laced a Big Ripper with 10speeds for some extra long distance cruising, wheelie-ing and shredding! He allegedly couldn’t come up with a name for this model so he just called it “Prototype” ..for now 😉
The ‘Prototype is everything you love about the Big Ripper but with the addition of 10speeds. Now with this bike you’ll not only be able to style on those roadies but you can potentially out pedal them too lol! We got love for the roadies but we had to throw that in there 😉
Recently Todd took the Prototype on an Epic ride down the California coast to see what its really capable of. Here’s what the folks at SE had to say.
“In the spirit of our legendary motto of “BMX Innovations,” we went deep into the design lab this winter to develop an AWESOME new SE bike. We took one of our big wheeled BMX bikes and redeveloped it with a SRAM 1×10 drivetrain, front and rear disc brakes, integrated headset, and internal cable routing. We put Todd “Wildman” Lyons on the bike to test it out on a 3-day adventure with his buddy Giovanni, from Los Angeles to San Diego. The cameras followed along for the 190+ mile ride along the beautiful Southern California coast. BMX legend Perry “PK Ripper” Kramer even joined in for the last leg of the ride! Todd said the bike rode like a dream and handled all the hills, curves, and miles with ease. As of now, this bike is still in the early PROTOTYPE stage, but look out for the final version of it to come out in the summer of 2018. LET’S GET IT!”
We can’t wait to see this bike in the streets at this summer’s rideouts!
