Mike Aitken just built up a new bike and damn does it look good. Fit just put together a slide show of his new ride giving you a sneak peek at a few prototype parts…
“Mike’s bike is solid gold – so have a look at his signature MOTOMIKE frame, S4 stem and SKYSCRAPER bars. Aitken is also running our new American-made proto FK 1.3 fork which should be out soon!“
For this week’s Products section over at The Union, Kurt has a look at The Shadow Conspiracy‘s Corvous rim, Profile Racing‘s Spline Drive sprocket, Sunday‘s EX Aaron Ross complete bike, Scott Ditchburn’s new signature Thunderbeast frame from Subrosa and lastly the 4140 shirt from The Daily Grind. Head over to The Union’s site for more info on all the selected products. I’m particularly feeling the Ditchburn frame’s investment cast wishbone…
United just dropped part two of their feature giving us a look at the Spring Release product they’re about to drop. This time around we get a look at the changes they’ve made to their affordable Supreme line of parts.
Spotted over on their Instagram page is a sneak peek at Tree’s new pedals. Pretty sure they are Alloy and look like they have a shit load of grip which will keep all the trails boys happy. Interesting to see more on these…
These new Camo Credence frames look rad as hell. Hit up your local S&M dealer if you want one though as these things are going to fly out quick!
“Because it’s powdercoated, the paint won’t scratch off like the D.I.Y. version – it will set you back a few more bucks than a couple cans of Krylon though. Shops already snapped ‘em all up, so if you want one, see if your local is on it!”
Connor Lodes, Kris Fox and Aaron Smith come together in this edit to introduce each of their new signature stems from Demolition which will be available next month. Each guy has a totally unique style with a unique setup preference, so they each sat down and designed a stem that fits their style and rig setup just perfectly.
For more info on all 3 stems go to:
Connor Lodes’ Stylus Stem
Kris Fox’s Stylus Stem
Aaron Smith’s Brace Stem
Damn, I knew Alienation had been playing around with a street ready tubeless tire and rim but it looks like the job is finished and they should be available soon. Spotted over on their Instagram is a sneak peek at the 2.3″ TSC 138 Tire that uses their priority TCS tubeless system , which according to them saves over a pound in weight for each wheel.
Click through to see a diagram of how it all works and head over the their website to get more info on the 138 Tire and the rest of their tubeless TCS products.
United just dropped a look at their current 2014 complete bike range including some new models like the Cinema collab bike that they just released. Check them out here and hit up your local United dealer if you are looking to pick one up.
The guys at Eclat have released their own do-it-all tooll called the E-Tool, which features pretty much everything you could need to fix your bike, all in one small package.
The E-Tool is the Swiss-Army knife for your BMX. All the functions of the tool are hidden inside the anodised tube. Throw it in your bag and make sure you don’t lend it to anyone, as you’ll never get it back!
Oh boy Bikeguide is going to love this… Just when you thought the days of running plastic parts were behind us, this crops up. Seen here is the Glivore Sprocket from new UK brand Arcane. Arcane is an in-house brand for the large UK based bicycle distributor Madison Sports and it looks like they are now expanding into the aftermarket BMX component market. Yay….
BSD dropped this guide to their new Spring 2014 product line which will be arriving worldwide next month. Worth noting the Raider Frame in Space Ghost Purple, Alex D Donnasqueak Tires and the new 14mm Back Street Pro Hubs…
Sunday Bikes just released their brand new 2014 Softgoods. Check out the flipbook above featuring Aaron Ross and Jake Seeley wearing the new gear, then hit up Dan’s Comp, the Sunday Bikes Webstore or have your local shop get a hold of Full Factory Distribution to get you some fresh threads ordered in.
Aaron Ross and Jake Seeley hit up the Burro Cheese food trailer in Austin to show the new softgoods that are available now. Three new shirts include blue/gray Strength Raglan, a heather black Strength t-shirt and the ‘Broken Glass’ Cornerstone t-shirt. A black Cornerstone Snapback and the blue Manufacturing Camper make up our 2 new hats for this collection.
Another sighting of Eclat‘s much anticipated Shane Weston signature Blind Freecoaster, and it looks like it’s ready! According to Shane’s Instagram he’s on the production version and it should be available pretty soon so you better get saving eh?..
Also what’s up with the colour of that Rim hmmm……
Getting close to the centenary edition now…. Kurt over at The Union shows us through the following components for the 96th ‘Products‘ section; the BTR cassette hub from The Shadow Conspiracy, the Stratos top load stem from Stolen Bikes, the Knox guard sprocket from Sunday, the Badge pivotal seat from Madera and finally Chase DeHart’s signature Butter frame from Cult. Go on, go and have a good ol’ drool.
Verde‘s new site is as you’d expect anything from them to be; clean as a whistle. It even loaded relatively quick on my ropey 10 year old laptop (Windows XP fo lyf!) Cruising through the bikes section looking for something noteable, I came across this;
I’d have loved one of these as a kid! The ‘Scout‘ 12 inch bike shown above and below has an integrated headset, inflatable tyres and even tapered forks for a great looking, solid construction far surpassing the quality of pretty much every balance-bike out there. Extra points for the frame pad too(…I’m a sucker for a good frame pad) It’s great to see a company who pay attention to every detail and don’t just palm off the younger generation of riders with cheap tat. Go check out Verde‘s site for more on their rad bikes and parts line.
I spotted this gem at weekend on the one and only Mad Jon‘s new ride. He was riding a sample of Federal‘s entry into the Tripod Seat market. Using the new updated Tripod seat base that a lot of brands are starting to use now, this seat will be available wordlwide this Summer. Just as I was about to post this, Stu from Seventies hit me up with some more info on what the production version will look like.
“At the moment it looks as if it’s going to be available in Camo (with Black embroidery) and Black with White embroidery. So in short; not the sample Royal version seen here. Both of these seats will be available late July/early August.”
Be sure to follow us on Instagram for more exclusive product sneak peeks like this…
Kriss Kyle just built up a fresh new ride which you can check out over on the BSD site. Worth noting the flat red colourway of his signature Passanger frame, the upcoming Grey Donnasqueak tires as well as a prototype countersunk Race stem. Check out Kriss’ bike HERE.
Fit just brought out a small run of their Stems in this amazing Copper finish that we got a sneak peek of last month.
Our HIGH-TOP and BF stems just got their copper on, but the first run was limited, so if you want one – best ask your local shop to cop one for you!
Our crank sliding friend Eric Lichtenberger just received a sample of his signature guard sprocket from Stranger. This thing will be available later this year in Black and Silver, both 25t and 28t options, and will enable you to gap to switch crankarm any rail in sight. Yeeeewwww!
Aaron Brenner has a fresh bike check up on Nowadays BMX featuring his Stranger/Primo build. Aaron is running a bunch of prototype parts on his bike including the new Stranger team frame, Primo Solid Sprocket, JJ Palmere Pedals and the improved V3 Tony Neyer Stem. Go check out the full bike HERE.
