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

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.
Reed Stark is being graced with a signature pedal from BSD dubbed the Safari pedal. It seems to have a bigger platform than most pedals, with a generous amount of pins to keep your feet on the pedals. Look out for the Safari Pedal to be out in July along with a few new products the boys in Scotland have been cooking up…
David Grant has a bike check up on the BSD website. I’ve always been a fan of David’s setups and this one has to be my favorite yet. He’s riding a bunch of new BSD product including the revised Race Stem, Grey Donnasqueak Tires and his signature Raider frame in the new SpaceGhost Purple.
One of the cleanest Stems out there, just got cleaner. Here’s a sneak peek at an updated version of BSD‘s very popular Race Topload Stem which will be available pretty soon. This revised version no features a countersunk top for a flush fit with your topcap.
Head over to the BSD site for a bike check with Tony Malouf and his absolutly sick looking Werizona Beverage Frame which is now available from BSD dealers worldwide. That colour is so dope…
Every time Grant sends over a new BSD edit for me to watch I instantly know I’m going to have my mind blow. Alex D puts his new signature Donnasqueak Tires to the test on the hot squeaky streets of Cyprus in this banger of a promo video.
The Donnasqueak Tires are available worldwide right around now. Go find out all about them in the exclusive product releases we did earlier this year.
Check out the promo video for Tony Malouf’s signature ‘Wherizona’ Beverage from from BSD which is available now. Take a closer look at this rad colourway in the flipbook below.
The WheriZona Beverage, available alongside the original Beverage frame is now coming in a new one-off trans orange with custom WheriZona graphics. So we decided to take a trip out to Arizona to film Tony’s frame promo and acompanying lookbook that you can check out here…
BSD dropped this guide to their new Spring 2014 product line which will be arriving worldwide next month. Worth noting the Raider Frame in Space Ghost Purple, Alex D Donnasqueak Tires and the new 14mm Back Street Pro Hubs…
David Grant’s signature BSD Raider frame will be available in the appropriately named “Space Ghost Purple” on the next delivery which lands in March. BSD always kill it on the colourways and this one looks amazing…
