LEARN MORE ABOUT WHAT MAKES DAYLIGHT

FRAMES SO SPECIAL. THERE’S FAR MORE TO THIS

FRAME THAN A BEAUTIFUL CUSTOM FINISH.

Designed to be the perfect balance between speed and flow on the pump track as well as at the dirt jumps, when you’re on our 26″ Timeline you will truly make time fly. A morning session at your local trails will go by in an instant. A lap around that new pump track whizzes by in a flash. Are you that much faster, or that much smoother, or is this thing just that much more fun? Judging by the smile on your face, we’re going to bet the latter!

FEATURES

THE SAME TUBE SET OUR WORLD PRO TEAM HAS LAUNCHED AT HIGH-SPEED, OVER HUGE JUMPS, TO A BUNCH OF BMX WORLD CUP PODIUMS IS THE SAME FRAMEWORK AT THE HEART OF THIS DIRT JUMP, PUMP TRACK, AND DUAL SLALOM EATING BEAST. THE TIMELINE IS OUR ARC RACE FRAME ON STEROIDS, AMPED UP WITH THE SAME MACHINED FRAME PARTS INCLUDING A TIMELINE SPECIFIC REAR YOKE AND OVERSIZED BENT SEAT TUBE THAT POSITION THE REAR WHEEL NICE AND TIGHT FOR EASY FLIGHT! LIKE ITS BMX COUSIN, IT’S GOT THE SAME MODULAR REAR DROP-OUTS BUT ITS 12mm X 142MM BACK END AND INTEGRATED DERAILLEUR MOUNT WILL SHIFT OPINIONS ABOUT WHAT A DJ BIKE CAN  BE.

 

 

PROPRIETARY HYDROFORMED TUBING

Our Timeline hydroformed 6061-T6 tube set is not easy to build with. Compared to the simple round tube frames and the chromoly DJ frames that comprise the bulk of the dirt jump market, the Timeline’s unique tube shapes require purpose-built fixtures to hold them during the coping/cutting and fitting process. It’s an exacting process that takes 5 times longer compared to any round tube bike. Why all the tech talk? Because for a dirt jumper to be this light and strong, ours is the best material and best way to build it. Yes, it does cost more than the standard dirt jump choices out there, but as the only U.S. built hydroformed DJ/pump/4-cross frame making time fly, it’s as strong and rides as good as it looks.

DIME STACKED AMERICAN WELDING

This is truly a dying art form in the bike world, but at Daylight we conttinue to demand hand built perfection. No ground smooth welds or thick paint to hide our process as our thin ceramic coatings reveal one precision dime stacked weld after another. Even more critical is what’s beneath those welds — less than 1mm of gap between tube junctions for unmatched strength that also builds unwavering confidence.

DERAILLEUR READY SLIDING DROP-OUTS

The simplest design solution is often the best. Such was the case with our modular sliding BMX drop-outs that we modified for the Timeline — from an open vertical drop-out to a closed 12mm thru axle design that incorporates a drive-side derailleur hanger.  This way the bike can still function as a true single-speed with integrated 4mm titianium tensioner screws to take up chain slack just like our BMX frames. Or, with an added rear cassette, dearailleur and shifter, the Timline transforms from a convential dirt jumper to a 4X/dual slalom multi-speed trail racer! And there is still room to slide the axle position fore and aft so you can dial in your desired wheelbase. A few minutes and a few turns of the wrench and the Timline is a whole other bike!

CERAMIC PAINTED FRAME PARTS

You’ve seen it certainly and if you’re made it to this point we’re assuming it caught your eye. We call it the Daylight Look — our clean two-color ceramic paint design where the color of the frame parts are painted to match the frame graphics or integrated into a more complex frame/bike design concept. In addition to our machined sliding vertical drop outs, both our machined quick release seat clamp and premium tapered sealed beairng headset also come ceramic painted with every frame.

TRUE MTB HUB SPACING

It might look like an oversized BMX bike and ride like one as well — quick and agile —but the Timeline was designed from the ground up to be as much a versaltile MTB style bike with its 12mm rear thru axle and 142mm rear hub spacing. Throw on a single-speed conversion kit for riding the dirt jumps or pump track, or swap that out for a rear cassette and rear derailleur bolted onto our modified drive-side sliding drop-out and you’ve got up to 1o speeds at your fingertips for a fully raceable 4X/dual slalom beast. It’s a BMX bike. It’s a Mountain Bike. It’s a jump bike. It’s the Timeline — whatever fun bike you want it to be!

PREMIUM HEAD BADGE

There’s nothing that embodies the quality, craftsmanship, and championship pedigree of our frames and bikes more than our Daylight Head Badge — the crowning touch to any Daylight! We could have followed the trend towards modern and minimal — that would have been easy — but instead we embraced the heritage of the bicycle with an artisan head badge our customers rushed to embrace. And for many — that embossed, antique silver badge of distinction is the most important part of their Daylight. As it should be.

CURVED SEAT TUBE

It’s not the curved tube that makes this special, it’s the way it allows the tire to tuck in tight. The ultra-short rear end is a key ingredient in the Timeline’s quick, nimble handling.

EVERY DAYLIGHT FRAME IS CUSTOM FINISHED. EVERY SINGLE ONE.

We offer the full Daylight Spectrum of color choices as well as some spectacular surface finishes and design concepts that takes custom bike building to unimaginable heights. These specialty finishes sampled below can be mixed and matched with any of our standard or metallic ceramic paint colors to create a frame or bike as unique as you.

SIZING – FIND THE PERFECT FIT

There are a lot of variables aside from height that go into choosing the perfect size frame such as riding style, weight, aggressiveness, etc. Because of this, there is a height range for each size on our charts. The key metric to actually fitting a frame is the reach. This is the horizontal distance from the center of the bottom bracket to the center top of the head tube. Top tube length, seat angle, and other dimensions have little to do with fit since you won’t be sitting down. All of the geomentry dimensions besides reach have to do with performance and ride quality, not rider size. As you compare frames for you or your child, keep the reach measurement foremost in your mind. Below is a full chart of the Daylight size offering.
