Tom LaMarche is Over 700cmx


Tom LaMarche is Over 700cmx

Yep. You heard it. The Delco cover child of 700cmx and I talked for a long time yesterday about fixed freestyle and wheel size. At the end of the conversation, he said he was “over it”.

Check out his explanation below.

He pretty much summed it up as “Why would I want to ride a 700c bike when I can just ride BMX?” and I can’t say that I disagree. I mean, look at how high he is there. Riding 700c wheels just limits your bunnyhop height. So what’s the answer? 26″ fixed? Nah.

The answer is TUCK IT UP SON! When I said “over it” I meant literally “over it”. Tom was hitting new heights on his 700c-equipped Scissor yesterday. Those aren’t small tires either. Big-ass 2″ 29’r tires. He must have done this a dozen or so times yesterday. Dude’s a beast. This is hands down the highest hop on a fixed gear, regardless of wheel size.

Since the other photos were slightly obscured by the handrail in the background, here’s another angle. Real talk. Next time maybe I’ll let him hop my Eddy Merckx.
