Garrett Soundwave Bike on Ride BMX

You know Garrett Reeves is tough on bikes, so we wanted him to test the upcoming Soundwave frame. As you can see by his bike check on Ride BMX, the frame has been put to the test.  Black Magic and Garrett’s signature Ice Green versions of the frame will be available in late August and the Soundwave Special complete bike available in early August.  Choose Wisely!

Garrett Reeves’ Soundwave

View Gallery

As you can see Garrett Reeves has been putting our upcoming Soundwave frame to the test.  Crankslides are not the friendliest to down tubes and top tubes which is why the new frame comes with Wave Tubing to protect from denting and cracking.  Throw in hollow dropouts with built in chain tensioners and 41 Thermal heat treating with a Lifetime Warranty and you have one of the strongest frame out there.  Look for the Soundwave to come in Garrett’s signature Ice Green color later this summer.

Why did you pick the Funday frame to ride?
For the past few months I’ve been weighing the benefits of having a shorter chainstay and having more of my body weight over the rear axle. I justified it in my mind and it feels a lot better cruising around on it so far. Time will tell but I think the change is for the better.

How do you like the integrated chain tensioners?
It took me a little while to warm up to the idea, I haven’t used them in the past because my wheel doesn’t usually slip in the dropouts but it makes centering the wheel in the frame a whole lot easier and that a huge plus.

Your front wheel has all spokes laced inbound. What’s the reasoning behind that?
I personally don’t like the way hub guards look on a front wheel, I also don’t like the way my wheel looks with spokes broken out of it. I’ve been seeing more and more people lacing their wheels this way and have laced some up for my friends with good results and to be honest I have always like the way it looks and sometimes that’s reason enough.

Why did you pick your tire size?
For almost the entire time I’ve ridden I’ve had a slightly larger tire in front than back, I like the way it feels. I tried the big tires front and back and it just isn’t for me.

With the current trend of very wide bars, why did you choose to cut your bars down to 26″ wide?
I can’t think of any advantage I would have from running excessively wide bars, I never really had a problem controlling my bike when I had 22″ inch bars so I guess 26″ is just me settling into the trend.

How come you grinded the pins off of brand new plastic pedals?
I never really slip off of my pedals unless I’m doing something that involves taking my feet off anyways. I really hate cutting my shins and short pins make me feel invincible. I’ll trade a deep cut on the shin for slipping a foot once every few weeks any day.

Do you fear getting blinded by the high polished parts in the Texas Sun?
I’ve been planning on wearing sunglasses while I ride more often, that looks really cool. I think this is the motivation that I need.

You recently changed your gearing back to 25-9 from 28-9, why is that?
I rode 28-9 because I liked where it put my wheel, I can spin a 25-9 as fast as I need to and since I am changing up the geometry anyways I figured I’d switch back to an easier gear.

Anything else?
I am more psyched on this bike that I have been on any other new bike I have built, I can’t wait to ride it. Thanks!

Chris Burden over iced

Here’s a good photo of Atlanta flow guy Chris Burden making good use of giant block of sandstone.  It took a million years to make this rock and only a few moments for Chris to over ice the rock on his Third Wave.  Nice work Chris!
