“2018 marked the 10 year anniversary of CAC-TV.com/SugarCayne.com. It’s also the 10 year anniversary of my return to BMX Racing. Back in 2008 I decided to change the focus of the website from just covering comedy, parodies and the underground HipHop culture. I also wanted to start featuring comic book culture and BMX Racing.
The original tagline for CAC-TV.com was “HipHop-BMX-Comics-Life”. I recently changed it to “BMX HipHop And Other Dope Treats”. A while back I wanted to make it easier for people to be able search for the site so I changed the name of the website from CAC-TV to SugarCayne.com.
In commemoration of the 10 year anniversary I wanted to do something special and make a limited edition BMX frame. I designed the frame to reflect my style of riding which encompasses pretty much every aspect of the sport….well except for grinding rails lol! The frame is made out of 6061 aluminum T-6. The top tube and down tube are triple butted. The black and yellow colorway represents the color of the website. I also wanted to use big sized tubing on the down tube and top tube not only for strength but to also for some future Ideas I have for the frame.
I kept the rear end relatively short at 14.6 so the bike will feel comfortable on the track and the trails. Also since I like to jump curbs and do bunny hops, the rear end is short enough where I won’t be braking my back trying to do them 😉
The artwork was inspired by the color scheme of the website over the years. Back when it was CAC-TV.com, the side had a black background with yellow text and sub backgrounds. I eventually went with a white background for the later iterations of the site but kept the black and yellow in there. On the front side of the top tube I put CACTV there to represent the website’s origins. CAC-TV is short for Crazy Al Cayne TV. CAC-TV was the name of my cable access show where I featured HipHop, BMX, comic book culture and comedy. The show aired weekly in Manhattan, Queens, Long Island, Brooklyn and parts of New Jersey. CAC-TV.com was the official website for the show. Eventually I transitioned everything to the website and Youtube Channel. You’ll see on the seat stays on the frame BMX-HIPHOP-LIFE, which is the current tag line of the website. There’s also the tag line “Just Ride” on the seat tube. “Just Ride” is the motto I live by. It doesn’t matter if your world’s top rider and a newbie, I’m just hype on people just riding and trying out BMX and all off road cycling disciplines.
I’m only doing a super limited run of these frames in the anniversary colors. Ten in 20″ and ten in 24″ sizes for now. Ten frames to represent the 10 year anniversary. I may expand the line and make a Jr, expert, DJ and 29ner sizes.” ~“Crazy” Al Cayne Founder of CAC-TV/SugarCayne.com
Here’s the Prototype frame in action at the trails
The bike can also handle some park action!
