"It’s just a scaled-up 20, so the geometry was pretty much right from the start. The original ones had longer back ends, but we raised the bottom bracket so it made up for the longer back ends? The back end was nowhere near as long as a race one, but it was still long compared to a 20-inch. With the Wave C we’ve shortened it about as far as it can go. And, I personally love it, because I can throw it around. All the spinning tricks — I 3-whipped it, flaired it, 720ed it. You look at mountain bike guys, they can do all that stuff too, so it’s not that big of a leap, but for some reason BMX cruisers never made that leap because they had that race geometry."
