Video: World's first 30-in front wheel custom

Published: 17 February 2010

Just when you thought you'd seen it all, American customisers have come up with this - the world's first bike with a massive 30in diameter front wheel.

Dubbed the Paradigm and built by Ballistic Cycles of Wisconsin, the bike is the most extreme example of the trend to fit even bigger front wheels and lower rear ends to American 'bagger' customs.  

What's a bagger? That's US slang for a bike with luggage capacity, be it saddle bags or hard panniers. In recent years these bikes have become very popular on the custom scene.
