My Sunday Model-C is Finally Complete

27 March 2011 No Comment

Yes, after almost a year of hemming and hawing, waiting to see if Sunday was actually going to release Morning 24 forks with 990 mounts, I finally just put the damn thing together.

I’m trying out some Salt Plus U-brakes on the rear (not pictured), and so far I like them better than any other brakes I’ve had (way better springs than standard 990s). A.J. at The Peddler built these wheels with Sun Rim Rhyno Lite rims, an Odyssey Vandero front hub, and a KHE Reverse freecoaster on the back. Odyssey I-Path tires round out the wheelset.

The Sunday Model-C frame, Morning 24.1 forks, and 24 Umph bars are the foundation of this build.  Sunday revolutionized the 24″ BMX cruiser by designing this frame with 20″ freestyle geometry. It’s quick and responsive, and rides like a 20″ bike.

Why doesn’t everyone run an Odyssey Elementary V-3 stem? It’s the most technologically advance stem on the market, and it makes all the others seem clunky. Odyssey fire-engine red pedals give this bike extra shine.

Shadow seat, Odyssey seatpost, Sputnic seatpost clamp, Shadow cranks, and a Shadow Interlock 2 chain –along with the unpictured, aforementioned Salt Plus brakes — bring up the rear.

I’ve been riding it for a week now, and I must say this thing is addictive. Jim was dead-on when he said that it would put your 20″ in danger. It’s that fun.

Mad thanks go out to Taj Mihelich, Jim Cielencki and Bobby Parker at Sunday, Ronnie Bonner at Shadow, A.J. at The Peddler, Mike and Bryce at Clown Dog, and Jason Childers for helping me get this thing together.
