Another week, another exclusive BSD interview up on The Merged. Kriss Kyle’s much anticipated new signature frame ‘The Passenger‘ from BSD is now available worldwide. To coincide with the release of this incredible promo video filmed and edited by Dave Sowerby, this week we hit up main man Grant Smith to find out what went into making Kriss’ new frame a reality. Put the kettle one, and take a seat.

Back in September it was announced that BSD would also be distributed by Animal Bikes in the U.S along with their existing distributor, QBMX. Animal just received their first shipment of product, so if you’re on the east coast and are in need of some fresh BSD gear, go have your local shop give them a call.
David Grant has one of the most memorable and enjoyable riding styles around. After getting on the BSD pro team in 2011, David now has his own signature Frame and Bar which are both available now. Following up from his amazing Frame promo that just dropped, we decided to have a quick catch up with David and find out more about his signature Frame, and what went into designing it.

Over at BSD’s website, Kriss Kyle has a brand new bike check up where he showcases some exciting new prototypes including his new signature frame; ‘The Passenger‘.
In case you haven’t been paying attention as of recently, BSD have been straight up killing it. Originally born out of one rider designing his own Sprockets and machining a small run for a few friends, in a matter of years the Scottish based company has rapidly grown into one of the more productive and exciting brands in the sport.
BSD has an extensive product line which is designed and tested with the input of one of the most dialed teams in BMX. The brand’s founder and main man in charge Grant Smith, hit us up and sent over a selection of their latest products for us to have a closer look at. From rim tape to investment cast Forks, BSD have you covered for pretty much any part you could need for your bike, take a look at some of what’s new for this year.

Dan Paley has a sweet bike check over on the BSD site. Go check out his WZA V3 which is sporting prototype BSD 2.4″ “Donnasqueak” tires and the street ready 14mm female cassette hub which we spotted at Interbike.
“I’ve been testing the prototype 14mm female hub and couldn’t be happier. It’s got a pre installed ratchet washer so the pawls in the driver don’t wobble out and cause your hub to skip when pedalling. It’s also got slightly larger bearings and a more oversized appearance than the backstreet hub, without going too OTT. It has aluminium cones for lightness with chromo centres so it keeps the hub as light as possible without sacrificing functionality, along with a new engraved logo this thing is looking fresh and ready for some hammers.”
We have an exclusive feature on this new hub dropping soon. Hit us up on Facebook with any direct questions and we’ll put it to Grant to drop the knowledge.
Spotted HERE over on their Instagram, it looks like BSD are adding Tires to their ever expanding product line up. The “Donnasqueaks’ will be tech shredder Alex Donnachie’s first signature part from te scottish brand and will feature a tough, all-round tread that measures up at a huge 2.4″. No word on colour options (interesting to see if they will come in the Gum colour option that the Cult tires do..), expect to see them on the both at Interbike in a couple of week’s time.
Tony Malouf’s signature Beverage Seat from BSD is now available. Fat Pivotal design with Embossed ‘Beverage’ graphics on an elimination Leather cover, the Beverage Seat is available in either Black or Red. Check out this sweet promo video Tony put together below.
Much to the delight of a lot of people, the guys at BSD have a few new products out just in time for the Summer. BSD have been on a roll this past year, producing some absolutely stunning web edits from all over the world so it’s great to see that they haven’t slowed down on the product development side of things.
Probably the most anticipated of these new products are David Grant’s signature Raider Bars which after a short wait are now available. The Raider Bars feature a massive 10″ rise and are made from multi-butted post weld heat treated 4130 for a maximum strength to weight ratio, making them much lighter than S&M’s Perfect 10′s, which weigh a massive 2.4lbs and have been the only Ten Inch Bar out until now. Bars seem to be getting bigger and bigger so it’s awesome to see another brand step up to the mammoth 10 Inch mark. If you’re a super tall guy and in need of a much larger Bar to suit you’re ridding, then the Raiders could be for you. Although saying that, I very much doubt that’s going to stop a lot of younger riders from going out and purchasing these things…
- Backsweep: 11°
- Brand: BSD
- Colour: Black, Chrome, Clear Coat Raw
- Rise: 10″
- Upsweep: 2°
- Weight: 1.75lbs
- Width: 29.5″
The guys in Scotland decided to give their Pivotal Seats a wee bit of an overhaul. The Slinger Fat Seat and the Stamp Slim Seat are now both available with this rather tasteful synthetic leather brown cover. Brown/Leather seats have definitely had a small resurgence as of late, and BSD’s offering are easily some of the nicest we’ve seen so far.
For 2013, Tony Malouf gets his very own signature Seat to run with his Beverage line of parts. The Beverage seat features an embossed Beverage logo and a larger profile making it perfect for Barpsins or just sitting down and chilling. The seat is available now in your choice of a tough synthetic red leather material or black vinyl.
All of these parts are available now (or very soon) worldwide, be sure to hit up the BSD website for more details on these products and the rest of their extensive range. Boom.
David Grant’s signature Raider Bars from BSD will be available in the next couple of weeks. Measuring up at 10 Inches tall, and 29.5 Inches wide, these Bars really are BIG. The Raiders are also fully heat treated for strength and feature butted tubing which keeps the weight down, making them much lighter than S&M’s Perfect 10 Bars which are straight gauge (and weigh the same as a small American child). Available in Black, Chrome and Raw, the Raiders will be out later on this month along with the rest of BSD’s Summer product line. Expect to see hoards of tiny children riding these at a skatepark near you soon…
