The guys at BSD posted a Interbike preview of their 2016 parts line-up ahead of the event in Vegas this week, first up is BSD’s first freecoaster hub ,dubbed the Westcoaster, in which the driver utilises bushings and bearings and a different resistance system to traditional coasters. It will also be compatible with the press fit Jersey Barrier hub guards which are also included.
Then we have the NASA rim; BSD’s first pop at a wheel hoop. This is a high-tech I-beam constructed rim with thick tapered sidewalls and tapered, offset spoke holes for cross lacing, sounds tough enough!
Next up are these M-Cap bar ends, these are good if you like the convenience of push-fit plastic bar plugs but break them often. The M-Cap bar end comes with a metal (Aluminium I’m assuming) ring to protect your plastic bar ends from being pummelled deep into your bars and having to fish them out again with a screwdriver.
There’s more on BSD’s site, on which we will be touching on when there is further info; namely the Dan Paley signature Soulja frame.
Well, I’ve got some catching up… The dudes at BSD dropped this sweet little promo for Liam ‘Leezy’ Zingberg’s (what a name!) signature Zingbars that are hitting shops very soon. Liam wanted something a tad loftier than the popular 9″ Giraffic bars so BSD hooked him up with a 9.25″ rise for his signature bars;
Post-weld heat treated 4130 chromoly
Available in black, clear coat raw or chrome finish.
Head over to BSD for a closer look and get onto your local bike shop about ordering a pair up.
Dan Paley is a street god. There’s no argument to be made there. Luckily, the guys over at BSD realized that and graced him with his own set of plastic pegs, dubbed the Rude Tubes. Definitely a good, funny name, and definitely a good sliding peg. These come in at 4.2″ inches long, with a 1.46″ inch diameter, and will be available for all you in 10 and 14 mm sizes. You can peep the full specs on the BSD product page, or stalk the BSD main site for all sorts of good posts. Stay grinding out there.
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.
BSD Forever dropped these photos of the new Acid Fork in this Kriss Kyle bike check/competition as well as these crisp new blue part colourways;
“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!
BSD Forever have been coming through with a whole bunch of product recently and are further expanding Kriss Kyle’s ‘Passenger’ line of signature components with these new BSD Passenger handlebars. These bars were made to feel like a taller set of BSD Highlander bars for those of you who prefer a more upright stance… perfect for that inevitably crooked spine of yours.
