BMX Groms caught up with Ryan Slusher, an 11 year old shredder from California who is lucky to be riding the new Sunday BMX prototype Radocaster 18 inch frame. Every detail on his ride is totally dialled in and we thought it would be super useful for all the groms out there to check out this setup. (Just be careful you don’t drool on your keyboard too much.)

Givin the opportunity to ride the Sunday 18″ Radocaster test frame, my focus was to build a strong, light weight bike. I’m real happy with how the bike feels. Being a full Chromo frame and fork makes a big difference to a smaller rider like me. The bike complete weighs in at 21.3 lbs.
Anything else you would like to say?
I would like to thank Jim Cielencki, Jim Bauer, Chris Cotsonas and everybody at Sunday bikes for the opportunity to ride such an awesome bike.
