Spotted: GT Four-Piece Bars

Originally posted over at The Union, here we can see a cheeky glimpse at GT‘s prototype-remakes of their classic 4-piece bars of which Animal’s discontinued Bob Scerbo bars were based upon.  There’s no information on release dates, sizes or specs as of yet (other than they’ll come in black and chrome…) but here’s to hoping they stay true to the originals.

Spotted: The Make 4-Piece Bars

At first glance, these look like some Bob bars from the guys at Animal. Then you realize that it’s The Make whose behind it, and suddenly you’re a bit confused. We actually have no info on this set of bars, so you’ll need to stay tuned to see what they’re up to, and you can do that on their site.

New Alex Kennedy Parts from Cult

In my opinion, Alex Kennedy is one of the best freecoaster riders out there today, so whenever I see something new with his name on it, I get stoked. Now it’s a new bronze colorway of his frame, as you can see above, and a new set of bars with some bigger dimensions. I think it’s very well deserved. If you want to see a photo of the bars along with some dimensions, just click through!

Exclusive: Interview on Custom Frames with Mike Laird and Laird Frames

1

When i first started looking into this series, the first brands that came to mind were FBM, Solid, and Standard. These were the companies I grew up idolizing for their work and attention to detail, and I couldn’t wait to get an inside look at what they do, and pick their brain about some of the products they put out. Over the last few years though, there has been an increase in companies putting out custom work, like Pedal Driven, Limit Frabications, and Laird Frames, and so we figured that it’d be awesome to get their input on the market, along with letting them speak about their work, for this exclusive series. With that being said, this week’s interview is with Mike Laird of Laird Frames. Click through for the full interviews and some more photos…
