Everyone got pretty excited when we posted a sneak peek of Odyssey‘s prototype Freecoaster hub earlier this year. Well thanks to this post by Odyssey’s Austin based design office, the hub will be Sean Sexton’s signature hub and will be called the Clutch Freecoaster. Guessing by the name, this thing will use a clutch based system like the KHE style hubs, but Odyssey claim this isn’t using the same internals and uses a new, unique system. Look out for more on this one at Interbike in September!
Flybikes will be giving everyone a preview of their new 2015 line of products they have been busy working on in the next few days. Here’s a look at their new Misty Silver colorway that will be available on their alloy parts later this year.
Sunday Bikes have added a dash of colour to their Current tire. The tire is now available in four options; black, tan wall, red with black wall and blue with black wall. This affordable tire comes in 2.10″ (all black) and 2.25″ (all colors) for the wallet friendly price of only $19.99 each.
Here’s another look at Tommy Dugan ‘s upcoming Odyssey signature tires due out later this year in 2.30″ and 2.40″. Looks like they took the super popular Hawk tire and given it some more beef.
Wow! Subrosa just dropped their 2015 range of complete bikes, and damn do they look good. Plenty of wild two-tone colour schemes and pro-inspired bikes, this years range of bike is looking better than ever! Check them out in the flipbook bellow!
“We are so stoked to launch our new 2015 Complete Bike Collection today. Everyone at Subrosa has been working long and hard on these bikes and we are damn proud of the line.
You’ll notice some new additions to the line including the Altus Balance, Altus 16″ and the Malum 26″. I’m very excited about increasing the bikes we offer to cater to everyone from young guns just learning to ride, to the veteran shredders that still want to rage around town.
We’ve also added some awesome new signature models for our pro team members Hoang Tran and Simone Barraco! These bikes are killer and modeled after the bikes they actually ride. This way you can rock a bike like them no matter what your budget is.
Take a look through the catalog, and check out the complete bike product page for all the spec and then hit up your local shop or favorite mailorder to make sure they get the one you want. Bikes will begin arriving worldwide in the beginning of September.”
Reed Stark’s signature Safari Pedal from BSD is now available. Head over to the BSD site for more info on these super grippy badboys!
“Reed has been talking about this pedal idea for as long as he’s been on BSD. He noticed that when a bike falls to the ground, the corner pins on plastic pedals grind and break off. The Safari pedal is designed with extra pins in these high impact areas to ensure the pedal stays grippy after withstanding severe abuse. The optimal pin placement, hexagonal pin shape, and knurling all combine to make this one of the most durable, effective plastic pedals in the market.”
BSD dropped the all new version of Kriss Kyle’s signature Passenger pivotal seat and it looks to be in stock at all your favourite shops and distributors this week. The Passenger seat comes in a dark red, leather brown, grey and black leather-effect vinyl cover with an embossed BSD logo on all four colour options. Hit up your local BSD dealer or have your favourite shop call one of their worldwide distros and order you one of these perches for you.
More Tommy Dugan signature products coming soon from Odyssey. Seen here is a sneak peek at his signature tire which will be available in both 2.40 and 2.30. It also look’s like Tommy has given a topload stem a go, he’s running a one-off camo sample of Sean Sexton’s Stem that he must have found at the OTX design office in Austin…
Odyssey‘s very popular Chase Hawk Tires are now available in Grey with a Black reflective stripe making them not only stand out over a Black tire, but also reflective and safer at night, perfect for those late night street rides. Expect to see these available from Odyssey dealers worldwide pretty soon in 2.20″ and 2.40″.
Wear in, not wear out, the new Merritt SL1 leather seat is a super clean and strong pivotal seat with a genuine leather cover and simple branded leather center patch. If brown leather isn’t your thing, the black kevlar version will also be super durable and has the same clean leather patch. Head over to merrittbmx.com for more info.
Next month Mutiny are bringing out Grant Castelluzzo’s signature street steed dubbed the Obscura frame. This frame is built to move, with super short 13″ slammed seat stays, lofty 11.8″ high bottom bracket and a tight 75 degree head angle, you could turn this thing on a penny.
Despite the super responsive ‘new-age’ frame design, the Mutiny Obscura keeps it’s clean, simple stylings intact with a high 8.8″ standover height and 70 degree head tube. On top of that it comes with a whole world of features like ovalised tubes, investment-cast seat clamp, double head tube gussets, heat treated tubing where it counts and no brake hardware anywhere to keep it looking slick. Check out the full specs after the jump. Continue reading
The next coaster related news of the day comes from Stranger who posted this snap of their soon-to-be-released switchable freecoaster/cassette hub. From the name we can tell this is going to adopt the newer and lighter retention ring system (used by Kink, Vocal, etc) rather than KHE licenced internals. More info and mysterious instagram snaps as they come.
Here’s a look at Tommy Dugan ‘s signature Fang Sprocket from Odyssey which is shipping now. These badboys will be available in Black and Polished in 25, 28 and 30t sizes.

No word on the specs yet, but the hub will be available in both LHD and RHD both as a hub or laced up to their 777 rim. Look out for this thing dropping later this Summer.
Primo‘s Pro seat will be available soon in Camo. Whilst there are a few Camo seats out now, I’m really into the grippy side panels which are bound to help a bunch when throwing the bars. Look out for this and a bunch of other new Primo products dropping later this year.

Interesting to see if Odyssey bring out a socket-drive version of this one after the sneak peeks we’ve seen…
