After a sneak peek last month, here are David Grant’s signature Raider Bars from BSD. Measuring up at 10 Inches tall and 29.5 Inches wide, these things are definitely for the taller rider like David, although you can probably expect to see a bunch of 5ft kids trying trucks on these at a skatepark near you soon. These will be available next month in Black or Chrome, along with a bunch of new stuff from the dudes in Scotland.
I’m stoked they have the matching Cat graphics to go with the Raider frame, easily some of the best frame decals on any frame ever…
Christian Rigal’s much anticipated signature series of products from United are now available.
The Rigal Frame uses pretty standard geometry, not too far away from the Mothership Frame, but uses beefier straight gauge tubing, making this Frame super tough. If you have seen Christian’s riding, you know that he likes to go big, so you know this frame was designed to take a hit or two. Featuring a top tube/seat stay junction gusset, double head tube gussets, heat treated headtube, bb & dropouts and 2.35” tyre clearance, The Rigal Frame is available in a choice of 3 colours and a wide range of tube tube lengths to keep everybody happy.
||20.6, 20.85, 21 & 21.25 in
|Chain Stay Length
||13.5 in slammed
|Head Tube Angle
|Seat Tube Angle
||8.8 in (centre bb to centre tt)
||5.1 lbs / 2.3 kg
The Rigal Bars follow the same idea as the Frame. You’ve seen what Christian gets up to on his bike, the mixture of big and tech riding means he needs product underneath him that is not only built to be responsive, but it also needs to be tough as shit.Made from seamless 4130 heat treat chromoly, the Bars feature dual radias bends to prevent bending and measure up at 8.75 Inches tall and 30 wide. Available in the same three colours as the Frame, and matching Dinero Forks are also now out so you can build up the whole kit.
The Bars and Frame should be available very soon, along with the rest of United’s new ranger of parts and bikes. You can check out all of these products and more over on United’s shiny new website which went live today!

It looks like S&M no longer have the monopoly on the 10 Inch Bars market any more. Spotted here are a prototype of David Grants upcoming signature Raider Bars from our mates in Scotland at BSD. Despite the amount of 5.5″ kids riding about with Perfect 10s these days, its fair to say that a guy as tall as David deserves a bar of this mammoth size. Measuring up at 10 Inches High and 29.5 wide, the Raider Bars will be out later this Summer for you whack on your bike weather your super tall, or just want the biggest bars in the game. Angles are 2 degrees upsweep and 10.5 of backsweep, expect more info dropping from BSD soon.
A few years ago, the very idea of a 10 Inch bar was laughable, but the market certainly does seem to be there. How long until we see the 10 inch mark broken?…
Cheers to Mariano Leonczik for the find.
For those of you who don’t know, The Source is one of the biggest and best core BMX shops in the UK. Run by brothers Mark and Rich and based out of Hastings on the south coast, the shop has been around for 10 years now and has always been a huge support to the UK BMX scene. They stock a massive amount of products, are run by a super friendly team and have a Pro Team featuring Kris Kyle, Ben Lewis and Matt Priest. Winning best UK shop for two years running, if you haven’t checked them out, I highly recommend it. They even have their own ramps in the back of the shop!
To coincide with their 10 year anniversary, The Source are releasing a range of strictly limited edition products throughout the year. First up are the Fit x Source Benny L Bars. The Benny L 4pc bars are hand made in the USA from Post weld heat treated 4130 crmo and feature a big box design and larger top bends for maximum strength. The versions feature the ltd edition 10 Year graphics and are only available in Black.
Next is the S&M x Source ATFids frame. The ATFids frame features a custom Fids inspired pirate headtube badge and decals on S&M’s flagship ATF Frame and is available in classic Fids yellow or black. Hand made in the USA from supertherm butted and tapered 4130 tubing.
There will only be small numbers of each product released, and when they’re gone they’re gone, so if you want to own one of these rare products head over to The Source’s website before it’s too late!
Now a lot of people are going to be stoked on this. If you’ve ever wished that you could make some geometric changes to Fit frames or bars, well you are now in luck! Much like what S&M have been doing for a few years now, you can pay extra and get your favourite Fit Bars and Frames made to your custom specs and colours. Head over to Fit for more info on this one.
Fresh new Bars from Sunday, the new Broadcaster Bars are 8.9″ making them their biggest yet! They are 28.5″ wide and have 12˚ backsweep and 1˚ upsweep. Straight gauge tubing is used on the bends while butted tubing is used for the crossbar. Much like the Broadcaster Frame, these Bars do not use the 41 Thermal heat treatment and are designed to be slightly more affordable than the other Sunday Bars, whilst still retaining maximum quality.
“Sunday bars feature proven geometries that are finished to compliment the Sunday aftermarket frames. The Broadcaster bar is a durable and affordable post-weld heat-treated bar. The Tall T and Triumph XL bars use a Black Magic rustproof coating throughout and use our 41-Thermal heat-treating process for strength and durability. The Tall T and Triumph XL bars are both proudly backed by our legendary lifetime warranty.”
These are available now in Black and Chrome, hit up Sunday for more info.
