Our latest color kit is this new semi-matte Teal color. Each item is sold SEPARATELY but if you ask nicely, your local shop or favorite mail-order should be able to get each item for you. It’s shipping now so hit ’em up to get them in time for Christmas!

Also, make sure to check out Mike Aitken’s bike check. We made this teal color to specifically match his frame!

Gary Young Bike Check!

Gary Young has a bike check up over at the Sunday site. We noticed some kids happened to spy that he’s not running his own grips right now and that’s mainly because he’s in the process of updating his signature grip so he’s trying out some other ones to see what changes he wants. Also, the Gary Young bar will also be getting a fresh update soon so keep an eye out for that as well!

Check out the pics above and then play Pong when you’re done!
Oh and you might as well watch his Tunnel edit again, too.

Gum Par Ends

We have a little update with our gum Griswalds. We just got a shipment in that has matching gum par ends so expect to see these gems to trickle down to your favorite shops and mail-orders soon!

Mike Gonzalez

Mike Gonzalez sent us some pics of his splatter bike, decked out with some Fire Engine Red parts. The Senior 2 saddle is available now and the rest of the red will come early next year.

We have Mike on the team as our designated racer but he’s down to shred some parks and ditches as well. Check out the Swine Flu Tour for some clips.

You may have seen some photos of this tall bike floating around the internet these past few days and we decided to put together a little bike check featuring all of the parts we ended up using to make it happen. The hardest part to make this bike a reality was having a solid steering mechanism (we ended up having to use 4 headsets) and getting the right sprocket size combos to get the chain tension right through out the whole drive-terrain. The end result is a ridiculously tall bike with a lot of parts and a top wheel that rolls backwards when the bike is rolling forwards.

A huge thanks goes out to Rob at CM Speed for doing the welding for us!

Kyle Hart has a bike check up at RideBMX.com. The product list is a little wacky but that paint job he’s rockin’ is looking good.

Kyle’s of the 3-peg persuasion and out of curiosity, how many pegs are you guys running these days? Leave your peg count in the comments.

EXTRA INFO:
The JC/PC Pedals are half white, half black. I run the pins on the white side flush for pedal grinds. I also run a white half on that side so I always know what side is the grind side.

As for the bars, they are exactly Lumberjacks, with 4 deg. of up sweep, making them 8.6″ tall. Your hands are in the same position, your wrists thank you for the up sweep.

The Weight for all of those wondering: 22.8 lbs.

As one of the main dudes behind our R&D, you can bet that Ben’s bike is dialed (and blinging gold). A complete parts list can be found in the flipbook above and a couple things to note are the new Four:four bars and the gold rims, spokes, nipples and hubs he’s running are now available.
