2012 SE Bikes Lineup – 29er Cruisers, BMX, Urban Tricksters, City Commuter Bicycles & More
SE Bikes has a wide range of new and updated bicycles for everyone from kids that wanna get rad to adults that want to act like kids getting rad on the weekends and commute to work in style during the week.
Above is their Quadangle Looptail takes their classic BMX frame and gives it some shiny new paint and chrome in the 26″ version (left) and finally brings the 29er model to production (right). Complete with chromoly frame, fork and bars, they’re spec’d well and even come with retro logo’d frame/bar pads.
For leisurely rides without jumps or obstacles there’s the Big Style men’s and Rip Style (right) men’s and women’s cruisers. Both have Hi-Ten steel frames and coaster brakes, but the Big Style gets 29″ wheels.
The Soda Pop line of kids bikes includes 20″ and 24″ models. Both are singlespeed designs for youngsters based on the larger 700c city cruiser bikes. The 20″ wheels have coaster brakes, but the 24″ get real brakes. You can’t start your budding hipster too young these days, otherwise they’ll just never catch up.
SE Bikes is really a BMX company at its heart, and here’s the bread and butter. The Heavy Hitter (left) and PK Ripper XLP Team. The XLP is their high zoot racer with a lightweight alloy frame built up with light cranks, wheels, seat/post and other high end parts. The Heavy Hitter is the Pat Laughlin pro model with a double-butted CroMo frame, tapered CroMo fork and CroMo handlebar and is built for ramp and street.
Carrying the BMX design style to larger wheels are (L to R) the OM Flyer, PK Ripper Fix and Big Ripper 29er. The 26″ OM Flyer is fully chromed out and spec’d with lightweight bits and pieces. The PK Ripper Fix has 700c wheels and oversized top- and downtubes with reinforcements throughout the 6066 alloy frame. SE Bikes says it’s the strongest PK Ripper frame to date. The Big Ripper is a 29″ BMX bike with chromoly fork and handlebar on an aluminum frame. Comes with pads, too.
The Lager city bikes have chromoly frames and forks. For 2012, they get upgraded with riser bars, Freedom Thick Slick tires and Odyssey pedals.
The Draft lineup includes the Draft Coaster (top left) which is as simple as it gets with a Shimano coaster brake rear hub and that’s pretty much it. The Draft Lite bikes, shown here in the available color options, gets ano’d alloy bits and upgraded spec for 2012. All models are Hi-Ten steel frames.
Wanna build your own concrete crusher? The US vs THEM collabo (above) and Quad Fix (below) 700c frames remain in the lineup. Both have heat treated, reinforced frames with their chromoly Landing Gear aftermarket fork.
