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.

“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.
Total BMX just posted up a sneak peek of Daniel Sandoval’s signature “Sandstorm” Frame which will be available in the Fall/Autumn later this year. I’m really into the Sandtorm Blue (pictured) but the frame will also be available in Dirty Red and Black.
Here’s a sneak peek at Australian park ripper Kyle Baldock’s signature frame from Total BMX in a wild bright Yellow colourway. With a frame called the Killabee, you would have to expect them to bring it out in Yellow at some point.

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…
