Default Hunter Cruiser

This is a bike I keep in Arizona to bomb around on when I'm visiting my in-laws. Originally built by Rick as what he called a flat-tracker, it's been through a couple of incarnations with cruiser handlebars. I've always called it my big kid BMX bike.

This year I got it into my head that it might be cool to try out some different bars and set it up more SS than cruiser. Super glad I did. It feels so much like an old Fat now with the long stays and slack angles. BB is a bit low for serious off-roading - those are only 170mm cranks by necessity - but man oh man does it love a gravel path.

Umm, he brought it to NAHMBS in 2007, so it was probably built in 2006. More retro than vintage.

Do double U-brakes count?
