Frame Geometry

A: Top Tube Length: 20" & 20.5" - Learn what size is right for you here.

These are short top tubes

B: Chain Stay Length: 13.2” - 13.5" - Learn About Chain Stays Here

This is a longer chain stay, it will give you more balance when doing manuals and pulling up for higher bunny hops.

C: Head Tube Angle: 75° - Learn About Head Tube Angles Here

Steep head tube angles make the bike "snappy" meaning more responsive to fast turns.

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

D: Seat Tube Angle: 71°

E: Bottom Bracket Height: 11.5"

F: Stand over height: 8.75"

This is a medium/tall standover.

A medium stand over provides a good balance between responsiveness and control.

While a tall stand over allows you to pinch more of the seat for bars and t-bogs.

2021 Sunday Blueprint Price

So I actually think that for the quality that you are getting, the Blueprint is actually a little bit overpriced. They say "you get what you pay for" and that is true but it is still a little overpriced.

2021 Sunday Blueprint Quality

This is definitely a lower-quality bike. With hi-tensile steel, frame, forks, and bars, the blueprint will not last as you progress to mid-level riding. With that being said, it does have the geometry to feel like a higher level bike. Just not the quality.

Highlights

Really Affordable

The 2021 Blueprint is affordable for most people during non-pandemic times. It shouldn't take very long to save up $320.

Lowlights

Low Quality

With the lower prices, comes the lower quality. This can be a big problem for people who want to buy one bike and want it to last them for years!

Buy if you are learning:

  • 180
  • 360 taps
  • Manuals
  • pull up Barspin
  • no-handers
  • footjam

Don't buy if you are learning:

  • Freecoaster tricks
  • Grinding hand rails
  • Huge drops
  • 720
  • Flips
  • Whips
  • Big 360

2021 Sunday Blueprint Conclusion

This bike is designed for brand new riders. If you are a brand new rider and you don't mind paying a little extra for the Sunday 'name', it will be a good choice. If you want a bike to last until you are riding at a high-level, go for a mid-level bike instead.
