2003 Nirve 720

One and only year for the 720.

I picked this up from the original owner. There are none on here, so I thought I would put it up here for reference. He replaced the original handlebars with a set of Odyssey Skim Milk bars. It also has on Redline front and one DK rear wheel on it. These are from his other two bikes that he swapped parts with to keep each one going. It also has a Mongoose seat that he has no idea where it came from.

Thats a sweet bike. I love Nirve bikes and the 720 is a great bike. Thanks for listing it on the museum and hopefully more people will list Nirve bikes also.

Re: 2003 Nirve 720

Thanks, I'd never heard of Nirve before I bought this one. Most people I've talked to have never heard of them either. I talked to the original owner the other day. He knows were the DK went. He is going to call him to see if he still has it. If he does more than likely it will have one at least one of the original Nirve wheels on it. big_smile The coolest thing on it are the cranks. It was probably one of the first to use raw cranks.

Re: 2003 Nirve 720

Yeah they are sweet bikes, I actualy used to sell them when they were new. I still have a 2001 Nirve Static. I am gonna list it in the museum soon for everyone to see. Nirve only made bmx bikes for a few years but they still make beach cruiser bikes to this day. The 720 was there top of the line dirt jumping bike at the time and was around $450 plus tax and was only sold at bike stores or online. I even have a catalog pic of your bike if you want me to email you it. Nirve was one of the very few companies that did raw cranks and the 720 was the only Nirve with raw cranks since the Nirve Flight had black ones, the Nirve Sensor had black ones and the Nirve Spline had chrome ones (only Nirve with the chrome version), all the other Nirves used different cranks. Your Nirve was one of the last bmx bikes they made since the 720 only came out toward the end of the Nirve bmx line. Originaly Nirve bikes were only sold over the internet and then eventualy sold in bike stores. They had a great team with alot of great riders like Gary Ellis, Stephen Murray and Mike Liard. Nirve was started when some of the GT executives started there own bike company when GT/Dyno/Robinson/Powerlite and Schwinn went bankrupt and then Pacific Cycles (Pacifica) bought them. So alot of out of work employees started Nirve since Pacific was moving overseas and Nirve founders wanted to give alot of the out of work, graphic designers, engineers and pro riders a job (Giant bikes picked up most of the GT pro riders). Unfortunatly Nirve didnt sell alot of bikes but it was a noble idea to try to keep some of the workers employed in the USA and compete with the bigger companies that they used to work for. In bike tests Nirves always did well but the brand just didnt have any name recognition. Nirves sold mostly based on there price which was half of what the bigger companies charged for a similar bike. Nirves came loaded with great parts for around $400 when other companies charged around $800 for bikes that were similarly equiped. If you want any Nirve info, let me know and I would be happy to answer them. Hopefully you will find all the stock Nirve parts for your bike and be a Nirve fan like me.

Re: 2003 Nirve 720

Sweet Static!!! That is just bad ass looking!!!! Sorry I missed your earlier post. Thanks for the history on Nirves. There is basically no information anywhere about them. Were they all American made? I'm going to shoot you a PM on information.
Thanks again,
