looks sick. nice to see some painted ones finally hitting the scene. this past year has been a blast on one of the protos. you will love yours so much after you fully adjust to it...

what size are those bars? i have some 7 3/4"x28" on mine and love the hell out of it...

bars are 8 x 28. i rode em at the skatepark last week and it was awesome, my bars slipped on the 3rd run which kinda threw em outta whack, but i put em where it looked ok and kept riding. since then ive pushed em forward like 3/4" and i can only imagine itll be better, doesnt feel too chicago'd.

i lined up this bike with my p.1 tonight bar to bar. bb is a good bit over an inch further back on the liquid, and the front axle is 2-3 inches behind as well. exactly what i wanted and exactly what it felt like. no longer am i riding something that feels like a raked out harley. these next few months will be torture with all this snow

Yeah, Alienation has some cool colors coming out.

I've always ran Rhynolite XLs. I think it's still the lightest option available and I've never had any issues with them.

I apologize in advance for being "that guy," but I've gotta know. Chip, how much does that thing weigh? It must be stupid light.

CMC, you're body looks stoked, I wouldn't even need to read a review, I can tell the bike is a blast just from his face!

how are thoise rhyno xl's holding?
I just bent one today! But in fairness, it probably would have ruined any rim. I ditched mid flight on a pretty massive jump. Luckily my feet made it to the top of the landing and I did the power slide to the bottom. But my bike took it hard... the front rim looks like a potato chip. :D

I've been using the rhyno lites for over a year now and have never had any issues other than today.

Thought I would throw mine in. Have it posted on the Liquid website forum.



A bit similar to cmc's with the black and gold/copper. The rims were from my Giant Method 24 and I painted the other parts to match.

here's my brand new Liquid. I never loved a bike as much as this one, and I only rode it for a couple of hours so far. It's such a relief to finally have a big bmx, instead of a downscaled 24" mtb with an odd geomtry.
I'm not sure if it's entirely up to the bike, or maybe even purely psychological because it's all new, but every single trick I try feels so much better and costs less effort on this one.



Homebrew U -> V-brake mount converter; I made it with threading for the upper HS33's mount point as well, instead of just the lower one and an extra brake booster in a normal setup, brake is even stiffer now and it feels good.
