Screen-Shot-2014-04-07-at-11.14.14-AM

Spotted over on The Union. Look’s like Sunday are bringing their high-tech frame building technology to the smaller guys out there with a 18″ wheeled frame.

Here’s something rad we came across from Sunday Bikes! They’re currently working on an aftermarket frame that’s designed for the younger guys not quite ready to run a full 20″ wheel. The 18″ Radocaster frame is full chromoly, features geometry like the bigger frames, has the Wave down tube gusset, hollow drop outs and more. This frame is currently being test but expected to be out later this year around Fall.

Spotted here is a look at Geoff Slattery’s second signature Frame from United dubbed the G-Slatt. Geoff is riding a fresh sample now, but the frame is due out in July. No idea on the spec’s just yet, but I’d expect this thing was designed to be strong go fast!

Geoff is out in Austin at the moment on an Eclat trip, so some of you ATX locals out there can expect to see him flying around on his fresh steed.

BSD Beverage ‘Wherizona’ Promo

Check out the promo video for Tony Malouf’s signature ‘Wherizona’ Beverage from from BSD which is available now. Take a closer look at this rad colourway in the flipbook below.

The WheriZona Beverage, available alongside the original Beverage frame is now coming in a new one-off trans orange with custom WheriZona graphics. So we decided to take a trip out to Arizona to film Tony’s frame promo and acompanying lookbook that you can check out here…

Fit WIFI Frame Promo

Fit‘s Jack Elkins and Dan Conway both ride the WIFI frame, so they got together to film a some clips and talk to you about why they like the frame so much. Check it out!

“We’ve been making the WIFI frame for a little while now, but its still a team favorite. The steep head tube angle, short rear end and low BB make it a super responsive street frame that’s a great fit for dudes of all sizes. Watch Conway and Elkins put theirs to the test.” – Fit Bike Co.

Mat Hoffman Bamboo Bike Check

photo-2_600x

There is no doubt that Matt Hoffman is one of the craziest human beings to ever touch a bicycle. From getting the first BMX frames made in Taiwan back in the 90′s all the way to strapping a lawn mower engine to his frame, Matt has played around with just about every way he could make his bike faster and stronger. His latest experiment was to try and make a frame entirely from Bamboo!

“I started off riding it on vert, than I took it to the park. I offered a new bike to anyone who could break it. One kid took it and kept doing huge backflips to flat over and over and it didn’t budge. That’s all I did, no tech testing, just ghetto backyard style testing.”

Kurt over on The Union caught up with Matt to find out more about his latest experiment. It’s a good rear and might surprise you…
