SE STR-29 Quadangle BMX – 2017

<p>Welcome to old school BMX, back when it all began. The Limited Edition SE STR-29 Quadangle celebrates the career of Stu Thomsen, one of the first of the pro BMX racers from the early days of the sport, over 40 years ago. This is how they flew back in the day, with a style unlike anything you see today. And now it can be yours.</p> <p>The STR-29 Quadangle uses 100% Chromoly tubing, an STR-1 inspired double-downtube-wrap-beneath-bottom bracket, a looptail rear end, and retro dropouts. Each frame, because it’s a limited edition, is individually numbered on the inside of the rear dropout. The full chromoly fork is a Cowboy Cut Landing Gear. And together frame and fork make a beautiful retro package detailed out with finishing accessories like chrome STR quad padset, alloy valve caps, alloy rear wheel washers, a custom Stu Thomsen STR-29 sticker sheet, and an authentic trading card personally signed by Stu Thomsen.</p> <p>The STR-29 isn’t just for show of course. The build includes Redline Flight 175mm cranks with dual pinch bolts, a sealed bearing American bottom bracket, and a 33T alloy SE Racing ring. The wheelset is built up using sealed bearing 36H high-flange alloy hubs with double-wall rims; there’s an ACS Crossfire 15T freewheel. Stainless steel spokes and frame protector alloy washers finish the set. Vee Tire Co x SE Racing Speedster, 29″ x 2.10″ tires wrap the both front and rear wheels.</p> <p>Finishing the STR-29 are Tektro 837-AL rear V-Brake, a chromoly Super Big Honkin’ Cruiser Bar, 31″ x 7″, and the stem, which has a 55mm reach, is a Retro alloy top-load with engraved SE Logo and lightweight cutouts. Grips are Special Edition ODI Mushroom II “Stu Thomsen” Signature Dual-Ply Grips with SE Donuts.</p>

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT BICYCLE TO START PRACTICING BMX?

  1. The size of the painting
    It is measured with the horizontal tube , ie the upper tube that joins the steering with the saddle. The larger the tube, the more space you will have to pedal between the pedal and the handlebar.
  2. The height of the handlebar
    The height of the handlebar determines the height of the driving position . An 8-year-old will be more comfortable with a low handlebar, while a teenager or adult will prefer a higher handlebar because they have the highest bust.
  3. The length of the pedal rods
    Normally it varies between 160 and 180 mm. Short cranks allow children or small people not to juggle their bikes. The very large connecting rods are more annoying for the practice of freestyle, but allow a better acceleration in race.
  4. Different BMX teams according to the disciplines
    Some disciplines require particular BMX teams. This is the case of freestyle, especially in street, flat and skatepark. The bikes designed for these practices are equipped with a rotor (a braking system that allows a 360 ° turn of the handlebar ) and of pegs (some calapers necessary to make figures and, occasionally, to take to the friends).
  5. The practice of freestyle requires a reinforced material that supports impacts and falls: a reinforced saddle, double-walled wheels with 36 or 48 spokes, or an ultra-resistant plate.
  6. For dirt, trail and race, tires are usually used with cleats , since the bicycle has to adhere to the earth and mud. In ” street “, in ” flat ” and in skatepark, bicycles are equipped with slick tires to ensure maximum adherence to the asphalt.

How to Clean a BMX Bike

  1. Suspend your BMX bicycle using a bicycle repair bracket. If you do not have one, suspend the motorcycle by using the holding cables or bike holder to hook up your car’s mount.
  2. Fill a bucket with warm water and dishwashing detergent, pour enough dishwashing detergent so a moderate amount of foam forms into the bucket.
  3. Rinse your bicycle with a gentle stream of water from a garden hose.
  4. Dip a large sponge into the detergent and water basin and clean frame, wheels and spokes of the BMX bicycle. Cover thoroughly in foam and wipe away any dirt, mud or dirt.
  5. Remove dirt from hard-to-reach, angled areas on the bicycle using a soft-bristled brush.
  6. Rinse your bike thoroughly with a gentle stream of water from a garden hose, removing the dirt and remaining foam.
  7. Dry the bike thoroughly with a towel.
  8. Apply a very small amount of bicycle lubricant to each individual roller in the bicycle chain. Turn the pedals back to rotate the chain so you can lubricate each roller evenly.
  9. Wipe any excess lubricant off the bike chain with a soft, dry cloth.
  10. Apply a small amount of bicycle lubricant to the pivot points of gearshifts and the brakes of your BMX bike if the bike has.
  11. Tips & Warnings
    Standing on your BMX reverse bike during cleaning increases the risk of getting water into the bike’s bearings. This could cause problems on the line.
