Lloyd was hanging around in Austin for a bit and we caught up with him to get some dialed shots of his bike and even shot a stunt of two. Click around to get the scoop!

This is pretty cool. Usually JC completely builds up a bike using aftermarket parts but this time around, he ended up just running a complete bike that’s already built up with nothing but aftermarket parts. As a bonus, there’s even some fresh JC footage in here!

Darryl is hands down one of the best dudes you’ll ever encounter. He recently put together this bike check with Props and to go along with it is not only some awesome riding but also roughly two pages worth of thanks to everyone who helped chip in. This is Darryl’s first new bike in 13 years and we’re proud to have had a hand in putting it all together.

Our Convertible seatpost and corresponding guts are now available as separate parts, should you only need one or the other. The post serves as a basic pivotal post (but with our unique offset design), and the separate guts will allow you to run railed seats on any frame with a built-in pivotal mount or any Pivotal post in general. We got you covered. Black only.
If you feel you may switch your setup often, we still offer the original Convertible kit.

Jim C has a pretty sweet bike check and photo gallery up over at ESPN. In it, he talks about his 24″ Model C and what it’s like riding it and switch back and forth between the 20″.
I know you ride your Sunday cruiser more than a regular 20″ bike nowadays. Is there a specific reason for this? To be honest, I go back and forth between the 20″ and 24″ throughout the year. I run a BMX bike company, so I should have experience in both bikes. Before I started riding this bike in October, I rode my 20″ for a whole year straight. For me, it’s difficult to switch between the two just because the 24″ makes the 20″ feel small. The main reason why I ride the 24″ is that I like the idea of taking something you already know how to do and making it different. It’s like riding bigger stair sets or steeper rails, you want the challenge of taking something you already know and making it different or more difficult.
