1991 Rumblefish Barracuda Cruiser
My name is Richard Kerr founder/ owner of Rumblefish Bmx products
My main race bike, production frame & fork from first run #10 of that run. I won a lot of races on this bike and made more national mains on this then I didn't. I rode this bike everywhere. Dirt/street/race.
This bike was featured in Bicycle Guide magazine In the "Hot Tubes" section of the magazine. Hot tubes is were they showcase high end bikes and boutique builders. The first and I believe only Bmx bike to ever appear in the magazine. I raced locals, doubles, triples and nationals. I put a lot of miles on this bike. In fact a year ago October I broke my right arm on this very bike at Yucaipa BMX track riding with my grandson.
When I designed the Rumblefish cruiser I used the geometry from an RRS cruiser with one change. I moved the bottom bracket shell back. This shorten the rear end with shorter chain stays. Also you have more room from the pedals forward and the seat tube is 73 degrees making the seat tube more upright and moving your body more over the center of the bike when sitting down. The seat tube on the RRS is something like 68 degrees. Maybe not that far buts it's pretty laxed.
This bike rides like a 20" but with the 24" wheels it more stable.
After nearly 30 years of ridding, still going strong.
