2010 Emer Swift 24
prototype THE EMER SWIFT The fastest manual friendly BMX?
I'm fed up of seeing fixies and fed up of being overtaken by mountain bike's, racers and folding bikes.
I still ride my 20 inch alot, but for long distances I'll ride this.
I've been working on this for quite some time, the sketches started about 2 and half years ago, but thanks to Mark Noble at Deluxe BMX who hooked me up with a quality manufacturer, I received some prototypes earlier this year.
The idea behind it is to make a BMX which can beat fixies to the pub- Plus I wanted the cruiser to have identical geometry to a modern BMX so the bike remains responsive and manual friendly.
I commissioned Seb Lester, an ex flatland rider and one of the best type designers in the UK to design the graphics.
(if design is your thing there's a story about it on the Creative Review link below)
The frame is in prototype stages at the moment, and should be out by the end of the year if there's enough interest.
