Interesting to see that things are getting back to basics, I thought it was the FGFS movement that were going to get there first. This looks like a cool basic bike that ticks al the boxes and standard height forks, no suspension correction here!

Great work DMR. Ideal for kids and guys to ride to work/school on with fun (and little sitting down), and trick as much as they want! Fairly decent sensible price too at £400-450.

How long till folks start fitting sus forks to these! :D

Personally I'd want BMX Cruiser bars on there on a 24. 26 also available

That looks pretty damn good fun...I'd consider one if I was a trail boss (which I'm very much not).

I had a mate who had an Intense cruiser which he fitted some old Marzocchi forks to. It looked funny but road pretty well and gave him a bit more room for error.

Yeah clever isn't it. I'm no trail boss, and look how mainstream BMX's and fixes have become, it's either playful transport or you take it serious. This is perfect for that market.

Geo looks like the 24 is based on the rhythm, tad longer as its lower I expect, and the 26 is actually pretty lengthy!

Obvs I'll stick with my rhythms and trailstars for now but yep, great new simple bikes there...

(long brake hose was for bar spins :wink: )

them Z2's are the toughest set of XC forks EVER... FACT!
they took 5ft drops and 15ft doubles all day, for 4 years, and are now back to plush XC duties without even a service!

Good old Marzocchi. 8)

Yep those frames will take suspension they are just not designed for it, which is fine.
