Just when you think BMX is safe from the Fat Tire trend going on in the bigger bikes, Todd Lyons comes rolling through with the new Fat Ripper 26″ from SE Bikes and throws down this new BMX video. Take a look at Todd ripping around on street spots, trails and really anything else he could run over on the bike. Now, the real question is… With bigger BMX tires and those massive BMX rims coming out, could this be the future of BMX?
“BMX Innovations: It’s in our blood. Mix in one part fat, three parts BMX, and a dash of radness, and you have the Fat Ripper: the world’s first-ever high-end BMX fat bike. Built with legendary alloy Floval tubing, a Looptail rear end, and Landing Gear forks, it screams PK Ripper. But add in the 26 x 3.5” tires, 65mm wide rims, and disc brakes, and it’s not like anything you’ve ever seen before.
The Fat Ripper has been in testing, under the microscope for the past nine months. Its creator and SE Brand Manager, Todd Lyons, has been plowing, jumping, bumping, dadonking, and destroying everything in its path. Obstacles and terrain that was previously thought as not ridable can now be ridden. We’re stoked to announce that the Fat Ripper is AVAILABLE NOW. We filmed this edit to show the world exactly what this beast of a bike is capable of. Introducing the 2016 Fat Ripper – Radness defined.

Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of riders that bring something very unique to their riding that really make them stand out. Whether it’s a crazy bag of tricks or style, there’s always that thing that burns a name into your memory. Over the course of the past year or so, Larry Edgar is a name that has been BLASTING his name into our memory with some of the biggest airs and a ton of style. Recently, Larry has been popping up more and more between contests and edits and was recently added to the Fly Bikes team, so we figured there was no way we could wait to get to know this guy better. Let’s see what he had to say!
Name: Larry Edgar
