A few months ago, I got the privilege to go visit the Animal Bikes warehouse on a dealer’s night and see what the guys were cooking up for the upcoming year. Between a huge jam that was going out on in the parking lot, sitting down to talk about upcoming parts and apparel, and all the free pizza and beer you could possibly drink, the hours flew by.
Luckily, I was able to get some pictures of parts that’ll dropping soon, along with some more info on what went into making them a reality. With that being said, let’s get started on this. Click through for more…
Head over to the BSD site to check out their new super beefy Acid Fork. They took their proven Ghetto fork design and beefed everything up, with a new tougher steerer tube, wider clearance for fat tires, a shorter 30mm offset and newly designed investment cast dropouts that fit pegs better. Check it out here.
The boys at Profile Racing have been at it again with the water transfers. Here is Mark Mulvile’s new signature Natural Camo range which is available on his signature Push Stem (pictured) as well as hubs, sprockets and more parts. Head over the the Profile site to check all of these products out in better detail, and act fast as this is a limited edition run and once it’s gone, it’s gone!
BSD are hot on the colourway game with this ‘clear water’ addition to Tony Malouf’s popular signature BSD Beverage frame. While a clearcoat is nothing new, the graphics on this frame are spot on and compliment it nicely, be sure to click on the images for a better look. The Clear Water Beverage is being shipped now so get your local bike shop on to one of BSD’s distributors.

If like me you’re strapped for cash, pedal your ass off everywhere and only buy top quality product, the Madera Signet sprocket might be right up your street. This USA made 6061 aluminium sprocket has a classic six spoke shape and three sprocket bolt holes to increase longevity (switching between the holes when your sprocket bolt starts to cut into the side is important folks) You get the choice between black or polished, 25 or 28 tooth sizes and the centre is bored out 24mm and comes with 22mm and 19mm adapters. All this for a measly $29.99 (US) You cant go wrong. Get one direct from Madera/Profile Racing here.

Here’s a gum color way of the new Option tire that Merritt will be dropping soon! These tires look extra clean in this gum color which looks kinda cool with the way the gum is only on the tread. This tire also uses a harder compound sidewall to help you slide on grinds.
Here are some new color ways of the Cult Vans tires. They go from casual gum and brown to a wild fluorescent green to a very popular grey. Be sure to pick some up when they drop.
