Head over to the BSD site to check out their new super beefy Acid Fork. They took their proven Ghetto fork design and beefed everything up, with a new tougher steerer tube, wider clearance for fat tires, a shorter 30mm offset and newly designed investment cast dropouts that fit pegs better. Check it out here.
BSD are hot on the colourway game with this ‘clear water’ addition to Tony Malouf’s popular signature BSD Beverage frame. While a clearcoat is nothing new, the graphics on this frame are spot on and compliment it nicely, be sure to click on the images for a better look. The Clear Water Beverage is being shipped now so get your local bike shop on to one of BSD’s distributors.
“Kriss chose to set up the new Midnight blue Passenger frame and bars with the new BSD Acid Forks. He’s also running the new dust blue colour parts which includes new Dan Paley Slims grips, Safari Pedals, Donnasqueak Tires and Kriss’ own signature series Passenger Seat. All new products will be available from early December”
The Acid Fork is a spin-off from the Ghetto Fork and comes with 30mm offset investment cast dropouts, plenty of clearance for 2.4″ tyres and an integrated headset race. And what’s more is that if you like the look of this steed Kriss is standing with, you can win it here.
Your favourite riders, favourite rider is getting a signature grip from BSD and damn does it look good. The Thins grips use a classic mushroom pattern with a super sticky compound and long 160mm length making them simply irresistible. Go grab a pair when they are out next month and keep the food on Paley’s table.
Like your bikes to be able to move? Well so does Alex Donnachie apparently… BSD unveiled the ALVX frame from their 2015 line recently and just dropped some info on it’s geometry and to say this thing is tight would be an understatement. The super steep 75.5 degree head angle and ridiculously short 12.5 chainstays are measurements that would make most flatlanders blush. Here’s the vital stats from BSD’s website;
– Super short rear end slammable to 12.5”
– Extra wide rear end for up to 2.4” tires
– Curved ends on stays for peg clearance
– External gussets
– No brake mounts
– Toptube sizes : 20.3″, 20.6″, 20.8″ and 21″
– Headtube angle : 75.5°
– Chain stay length : 12.5 to 13″
– Weight : 5 lbs
– Colours : Trans blue, clear coat raw and flat black
Notice how close the chainstay bridge is to the BB. This frame should be available to the general public by late November so keep an eye and an ear out.
*Edit* I previously made a guess to the BB height but an eagle-eyed viewer commented below and put me right with this;
BB Height: 11.8(!)
Standover Height: 8.7
BSD just dropped a look at some of the new product they are dropping at Interbike next week including Dan Paley’s signature grips, new coloured Donnasqueak tires and an Alex Donnachie signature frame with a 12.5″ chainstay. Click HERE to check it out!

Now this is more like it… far from everybody’s little brother’s garish rasta/oil-slick paint jobs, BSD Forever have just released this awesomely understated grey colourway for the Donnasqueak tyres, Reed Stark’s Safari pedals, the Forever grips and Kriss Kyle’s Passenger seat. Hit up your local BSD dealer and get them to order a set of these in for you.
BSD make pretty much every part under the sun, but until now they were lacking a pedal in their extensive range of simplistic and well designed parts. Unless you have been sleeping under a rock this year, you will have noticed that Reed Stark is an absolute animal on a bike (check the above promo for proof of this), but many of you dont know how much into product design he actually is… BSD always work closely with their riders on their signature products so when Reed had an idea for a pedal, he sat down with brand owner Grant Smith and they came out with a simple but unique design which was the perfect answer for what good pedal should be.
The Safari Pedal just hit the shelves so we decided it would be greta to not only premier the promo video, but to hit up Reed and find out more about the pedal and what went into designing it. Check it out… Continue reading
