Following up from his amazing Frame promo that just dropped, we decided to have a quick catch up with David and find out more about his signature Frame, and what went into designing it.

It look’s like Tom still needs bigger bars. Here is a sneak peek of his new 8.75″ version of his signature USA made Duagn Bars from Fit Bike Co. I’d expect these will be available pretty soon.
Spotted over on Freedom BMX where he has a bike check which you can check out in full here.
TheUnion just dropped their Products: Vol 78; a tad later than usual because of Texas Toast but with the level of riding that happened there this year, it’s more than forgivable.

Go and have a butchers.

Cult just had a huge delivery of new goods that you can expect to see popping up worldwide pretty soon. This includes the AK Frame, AK Grips, Tripod Seats, IC Fork, 2.40 Tires and the much anticipated Freecoasters. Head over to the Cult site for a closer look!
Deluxe‘s brand new American-made ‘Welcome’ bars are now available! These bad boys are made from straight-gauge (.049) US 4130 chromoly steel by Aaron at Solid. They come in either 8.5″ or 8.7″ heights in either black or raw colours and feature a 12 degree backsweep and 1 degree of upsweep. Made to team rider, Mark Potoczny’s specific preferences, these wholly stylish looking bars will have you soaring through tree canopies with the best of them.
Last week we had a peak at FBM shredder, Kenny Horton’s Orphan frame, now we have a set of frame specs to go with it!
Coming in either 20.75″, 21″ or 21.25″ top tube sizes, the Orphan comes with a slightly slacker headtube angle of 74.75 degrees which should add plenty of stability to this steed, as will the 11.5″ high bottom bracket, great news for all of you roof jumpers and hill bombers out there! The nice and snappy 13.5″ (centered) chainstays will bring that front end up nice and quickly and the 71 degree, 8 7/8″ seat tube will give it that traditional feel. This frame looks to offer something a tad different from all the super responsive street frames or mega long, stable trails frames on the market with something that fits nicely in the middle of both.
Not only have FBM released details on the Orphan frame but they also released specs on their eagerly awaited 4-piece ‘Black Flag’ bars. These lovely looking pair of steering wings come in a 8 5/8″ rise, 12 degrees of backsweep and 2 degrees of upsweep. These look solid as hell.
Both of these items are meticulously handcrafted in New York, USA at FBM’s machine shop.
