Kink dropped this little tutorial video explaining the benefits of the Stealth Pivotal Seat and Post. The main benefit other than the obvious aesthetic reason of getting rid of that fiddly old rubber flap is that you don’t necessarily need one to run the other if you’re on a tight budget; you can run an old pivotal seat on a stealth post and you can (if you’ve got a long enough allen key…) put a stealth seat on your old pivotal post.
Damn we have something special for you today! To say Garrett Reynolds is a good bike rider is probably the understatement of the century. After pretty much re-inventing street riding, winning every major street contest and releasing one of the best video parts of all time, the BMX world have been waiting for his signature frame from his own brand Fiend like a kid on christmas morning for about 3 years now. I mean it’s a testament to how humble Garrett is that he waits until all of the PRO team have a signature line first before giving him self a frame.
Well today the speculation on one of the most anticipated frames in BMX history can stop. We are proud to have the exclusive first look at Garrett Reynolds’ signature frame, bars, stem and seat from Fiend.

Looks like Rich is going wild with he fabric catalogs again! Spotted here is the new Stranger Tomorrow Seat which will be available in both Pivotal and Tripod (seen here) in August.
