Primo just dropped some knowledge on their new Freemix Freecoaster that should be out next month! I’m liking the idea of those snap-on nylon hub guards.
Our first freecoaster hub in a very long time the FREEMIX will be available next month and we figured this would be a good time to talk a bit about it. Our goal with this hub was to make the most basic coaster possible because as many of you may already know these hubs can be a bit confusing once disassembled. This is why our coaster come with no adjustable slack. By removing any adjustable pieces you are left with a longer lasting hub that requires less maintenance.
The second detail we felt was very important was to offer the FREEMIX as a complete wheel as well since we know how inconvenient it can be building up a whole new wheel just to see what coasting feels like. If that’s not enough for you we have a special treat to top it all off. All Primo hubs including but not limited to the FREEMIX now have snap on nylon hub guards. If you have never grinded a rail or ledge before with a nylon hub guard you are truly missing out on the smoothest grind possible. The new DSG and NDSG guards are available separately for our FREEMIX and REMIX hubs in early 2014. If you are serious about wanting to get into riding a coaster do your research, the FREEMIX has been tested by nearly the entire Primo Pro team for over a year now and has been put to work. Check our recent Primo Blazers edit to see it in action.
Spotted here on Primo’s Instagram page is a sneak peek at JJ Palmere’s new signature Pedal that will be dropping in March.

We got a sneak preview of this one at Interbike back in September, but it looks like the new “Whereizona” version of Tony Malouf’s signature Beverage Frame from BSD is out now.

Damn kids are so lucky these days. The new 2014 Wethepeople complete bike range starts off with the Seed 16, an incredibly dialed 16 Inch bike designed for young nippers. I can imagine a whole bunch of kids are going to be stoked when they unwrap one of these on Christmas morning… Continue reading →
One of the surprise products at this year’s Interbike was Mark Webb’s signature Tire from German brand KHE. Based on their super light MAC Tires, these feature a foldable bead to keep the weight down, and a smooth tread to keep them fast. These sample seen here on the Total BMX Instagram page show a Red and White pinstipe version along with an all black option. I expect Mark and a few other of the Total squad will be putting these things through their paces with an official release later in 2014.
Head over to RIDE BMX for an interview with Eclat’s product designer Rich Shaw on their new Venom Plastic Pegs which are available now. These things use the same specially developed hard wearing nylon compound as the Nathan Peg, but use a ‘classic sleeve’ system.
To find out more about these pegs or any other Eclat products, go check out the Eclat website today.
Colony are expanding their new ‘Rainbow’ colourway with the addition of the Squareback and Official Stems and the CC Sprocket. These are available now in the USA, next week in Australia and the rest of the world early January. Hit up the Colony website for more info on these products and how you can get your local store to order some in.
I actually picked up a pair of these at the Animal suite in Vegas whilst at Interbike back in September, and although I’m not a huge Cee-Lo player I thought they were pretty rad. These dice are now available from the Animal Bikes online store for those of you wanting the ultimate road trip accessory. Hit em.
For those of you who are asking that question, the answer is yes! Head over to the Profile site for a quick explanation about their hub’s compatibility with pegs and a good look at what the team are running up front.
