This is interesting. It sounds like Sunday were forced to change the name of their Spark complete bikes. They’re now called the Primer and Primer Jr. Here’s what they said on the site.
“We’re excited to announce the release of the Sunday Primer and Primer Jr. What is the Primer? Due to circumstances beyond our control, we’ve had to rename the Spark and Lil Spark. The Primer and Primer Jr. are the same affordable and reliable bikes, just with a new name. To celebrate this name change, we are releasing 3 new colors in two sizes. First, we have a new 21″ TT size that is offered in Matte Silver and Blue Wave colors. Next, we have a Seafoam Green in a 20.5″ TT size. Look for the new colors of the Primer and Primer Jr available starting late next week.” – Sunday
Amity Bike Co. put together this rad promo commercial featuring their Zenta complete bike. They gave their team riders, Cam Hardy, MJ and Santoo on of the bikes to test out to see what it can hold up to and ended up with some real good clips. They’ve even bumped the price of the bike down to £295 for the holidays too which is pretty crazy. Check it!

Fit caught up with Dan Conway to talk a little bit about the dialed Wifi complete bike and throw down a few clips. Check out a sick bike and some sweet riding clips!
“To benefit the Athlete Recovery Fund (ARF) and offer our best complete bike to date, we started with our popular aftermarket WIFI frame and assembled a bike with the best selection of FIT aftermarket components: Blade II Forks, FIT 19mm Indent Cranks, and Inman handlebars. Available in three size options: 20.5”, 20.75” and 21” and three limited edition color releases.
