    I have a 2004 30Th anniversary 26" Redline Monocog BMX. It's specked with Transition Revolution wheels/Redline sealed disc hubs, Hayes 9 disc brakes, Crupi cruiser bars, Race face 2 piece cranks, and Odyssey sealed peddles. I know a few other companies made them back in the late '70s to early '80s, such as SE, Cook Bros., GT, Mongoose, Laguna, and today's Fireman's Texas Cruiser. I use my big cruiser as a daily rider, and it's the center of attention wherever I go. Does anyone else out there rock a 26"? :thumbsup:

    I still have a 93 Diamondback Sorrento 26er. Haven't ridden it much since getting the new bike in September.

    I would love a 24 or 26" bmx for the bowl downtown. My 20" GT works great but it would still be nice to not be cramped up

    I also have a Firemans 26" Cruzer . This was just a mockup pic , I got the original fork , frame and bars custom painted . As soon as I rebuild it ill post up new pics . The green bike is a Huffy that I BMXed and giving to a good friend that's a Huffy fanatic , later today for a belated birthday present . Reason I got it was I resembled my Firemans Cruzer - decided to pass It on cause I picked up my Trek 750.

    Hi folks,
    I can't figure out where I belong, am I trials / BMX or am I single speed? Heck, maybe I'm both. I have a Haro 1.1 Steel Reserve that I bought new in 2010, this is my main ride. I just bought a 2009 Kona Shonky of the Bay. Both are 26 inch. I love the way the bikes handle, I live on the edge of a small town and ride in the country. These bikes take me anywhere I want to go.

    I think I have out grown my puppy stage, I'm now 64 years old. I have both of the bikes geared slow, the Haro is 25 / 14 and the Shonky is a similar ratio. The logic is to be easy on my old knees. I'm not to good at it, but I so enjoy track stands. If I were 40 years younger, I'd be lusting over a stock trials bike.

    Yes I really ride these bike few years ago, it is very nice experience to ride these bike. These bike has the nice features like tyres, suspension, it eliminates unwanted compression hydraulic disc brakes etc. and it likely provide the more efficient ride.
