In more 27.5 BMX news, Thruster has their Vanishing Point! The bike has been around since last year and has a slightly smaller tire size than the upcoming SE Bikes PK Ripper. So does this make the Vanishing Point the first 27.5 BMX Bike? This should make for an interesting controversy. We’ll get to that later on but let’s check out the stats on this bike.

Not a bad bike especially for that price point. This is definitely an entry level BMX cruiser. The Chromoly “Main three tubes” must mean the top tube, down tube and seat tube are chromoly and the rear end is Hi-Ten. 🙁 And some of the parts are low quality but again, this IS a entry level BMX cruiser. In the looks department this bike really shines, it actually looks nice! If your on a budget, this bike can get you on the streets faster but beware, this bike isn’t made for serious shredding. We need to test this one out to see what it can take.
