The Sugar Cayne BMX Frame Pro XXL 20″ celebrates the 10 year anniversary of SugarCayne.com!
2018 marked the 10 year anniversary of CAC-TV.com/SugarCayne.com. It was also the 10 year anniversary of my return to BMX Racing. Back in 2008 I decided to change the focus of the website and cable access series from just covering comedy, parodies and the underground HipHop culture. I also wanted to start featuring comic book culture and BMX Racing.
The original tagline for CAC-TV.com was “HipHop-BMX-Comics-Life” which eventually evolved to “BMX HipHop And Other Dope Treats”.
CAC-TV to SugarCayne:
A while back I wanted to make it easier for people to be able search for the site so I changed the name of the website from CAC-TV to SugarCayne.com. SUgar Cayne was the name of my music production company and my nickname.
The Frame Idea:
In commemoration of the 10 year anniversary I wanted to do something special and make a limited edition BMX frame. I designed the frame to reflect my style of riding which encompasses pretty much every aspect of the sport.
The frame is made out of 6061 aluminum T-6. Top tube and down tube are triple butted. Black and yellow colorway represents the colors of the website. I also wanted to use big sized tubing on the down tube and top tube not only for strength but to also for some future Ideas I have for the frame.
I kept the rear end relatively short at 14.6 giving the bike a comfortable feel on the track, street and trails. Also since I like to jump curbs and do bunny hops, the rear end is short enough where I won’t be braking my back trying to do them
The artwork ware inspired by the color scheme of the website over the years. Back when it was CAC-TV.com, the site had a black background with yellow text and sub backgrounds. I eventually went with a white background for the later iterations of the site but kept the black and yellow in there. On the front side of the top tube I put CACTV there to represent the website’s origins. CAC-TV is short for Crazy Al Cayne TV. CAC-TV was the name of my cable access show where I featured HipHop, BMX, comic book culture and comedy.
The show aired weekly in Manhattan, Queens, Long Island, Brooklyn and parts of New Jersey. CAC-TV.com was the official website for the show. Eventually I transitioned everything to the website and Youtube Channel. You’ll see on the seat stays on the frame BMX-HIPHOP-LIFE, which is the current tag line of the website. There’s also the tag line “Just Ride” on the seat tube. “Just Ride” is the motto I live by. It doesn’t matter if your the world’s top rider or a newbie, I’m just hype on people just riding and trying out BMX and all off road cycling disciplines.
I’m only doing a super limited run of these frames in the anniversary colors. Ten in 20″ and ten in 24″ sizes for now. Ten frames to represent the 10 year anniversary. I may expand the line and make a Jr, expert, DJ and 29ner sizes.” ~“Crazy” Al Cayne Founder of CAC-TV/SugarCayne.com
