Favourite type of riding? My favourite type of riding has to be park riding although I will have a blast at the dirt jumps when I get the chance.
Best spot to ride? I love to ride different parks, meet new riders and generally progress. My favourite park has to my local skate park Rampworx in Liverpool as it has everything you need to learn and progress. I am fortunate as I sometimes get to ride with the Pro riders, Harry Main and Anton McGuirk to mention a few who help and encourage me. I also have lots of BMX and scooter rider friends at Rampworx and we just meet up, ride and have fun.
Favourite trick? My favourite trick has to be the bar spin – I love to bar spin! The next tricks on my list to master are the double whip and the flair.
You recently switched from an 18 inch bike to a 20 inch bike. Was it a hard transition? I found the switch a lot easier than I thought it would be. Some tricks I mastered straight away, some were a little more difficult but I’m starting to feel more comfortable and confident the more I ride.
What made you decide to make the switch to a 20″? A few of the riders at my local park have commented over the past 6 months that I needed to upgrade to a bigger bike but I still felt comfortable on the 18 inch. It’s only over the summer holidays that my legs felt a bit restricted so decided it was time to make the switch.

Any tips on bike sizing? Before jumping to the next frame size, incremental changes can be made by increasing stem length, going from a front load stem to top load stem and/or by increasing bar size. These changes will increase your “riding box” (the area for your body, while on your bike).

2016 Sunday Primer – 16″ and 18″ BMX Bikes

Nahum lays down a perfect tabletop air on an 18″ Sunday Radocaster build. The Radocaster shares its proven geometry with the Sunday Primers.

The 2016 16″ and 18″ Sunday Primers are once again a perfect choices for younger shredders. In the past we’ve tested the Sunday Primers at BMX Groms and the Sunday Radocaster frame – which shares the same geometry – and been impressed.

Our Sunday Radocaster “Hands On” Review

Our Sunday Primer 16 and 18 Inch “Hands On” Review

Geometry

Sunday has taken the younger age group of riders seriously and developed it’s 16 and 18 inch frame geometry to feel the same as a 20″ BMX would to a larger rider. Last year when we tested the Radocaster frame we noticed our test rider progressing in some areas, within an hour of switching to the frame. Tricks such as half-cabs, 360’s and 540’s, higher hops and popping up into manuals are easier.

Highlights

Highlights include: the frame and forks feature cromo dropouts, they come with cromo cranks featuring mid sealed bottom brackets, seat/seatpost combos and Odyssey brakes.

The 16″ comes with a 16″ specific brake lever for those smaller hands, a 40mm reach top load stem and this year the 16″ comes with Sunday Current tires.

The 18″ comes with a Sunday Freeze frontload stem and Sunday cornerstone grips.

The stock Primers will be more than strong enough for most riders in the age range for these bikes. However if you get to the point you want to upgrade the 18″, you could buy the Sunday Radocaster full cromo frame and fork set, switch it up and you wouldn’t even have to get used to a new bike – the geometry is the same.

Verdict

If you’re thinking of purchasing a new bike and you like the Primers, BMX Grom’s verdict is: “Choose the right size and send it!”

Getting the right size bike is really important and Sunday has taken things a step further with their proportional geometry.
