2011 2010 bmw cruise bike   2011   2010 BMW Cruise Bike

BMW is a well known luxury car company, and now will launch their new series for 2010 – 2011 bikes.

Available now is the 2011 BMW Cruise Bike, while resembling a hardtail MTB, but is made for your everyday commuting, or getting in some local exercising. The design of the Cruise Bike is like much of the BMW cars available, clean and futuristic. More importantly, they feature a suspension fork, cantilever brakes, and 24 speed Shimano Alivio derailleur. Comfort is achieved by a adjustable stem, allowing you to set it just right for your height.

Weird part is, BMW states on the website “BMW bikes cannot be sent outside Europe or to Norway, Spain and Switzerland.” So it seems like availability is really limited. Retail is € 869,00, with your choice of orange/white, blue/black and silver/white.

santa cruz jackal 2010 300x167   Santa Cruz Jackal 2010Santa Cruz modified the 2008 Jackal, making it lighter by 1.7lbs but made sure that the frame retains its tough quality to make sure you can move at better heights and spins.

The new and better design was with the valuable input from Syndicate riders Jamie Goldman and Kirt Voreis. This resulted to a frame that gives you a better standover and with adjustable dropouts which you can set for singlespeed or derailleur.

The Jackal has a 1-1/8” head tube and a 30.9mm seat tube which has slack of 68.7 degrees for head and 71.7 degrees for the seat angles. The bottom bracket shell has a width of 73mm and height of 12.8”. Weighing at 4.8lbs, the Santa Cruz Jackal comes in colors of Black, Lime, Liquid Blue, Red, White, or Yellow.
