We have a couple show bikes lingering around our booth and one of them is completely decked out in the Fire Engine Red parts kit we posted a couple days ago. Aside from having the full kit, this bike also has our prototype seat post, which works for both pivotal and railed seats.
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.
Alex Bermudez of Give D! sent us some saucy pics of his latest rig recently. Word on the streets is he has an Odyssey edit coming up for us soon, so you can watch him stunt it up ala motion picture. In the mean time, here are some stills of him from a ditch in sunny San Diego.

MJ all day and Billy Mays forever…
Ride BMX has a bike check up for Hoang Tran. You can check out the photos after the Read More link or click the photo above for full details and a video of Hoang almost puking during a food challenge.
Dirt Ron put together a clean looking bike a while ago and recently sent us some pics (courtesy of Justin Kosman). A fan of the candy bar and spontaneous happenings, Ron’s a great dude who knows how to have fun on a bike. To go along with his bike check, there’s a brief Q&A with Mr. Pitcher after the read more link.
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.
A couple bits of Aaron related news. There’s a bike check up over at DigBMX.com and as always, you can count on it being one of the most colorful bikes in BMX. Ocean Blue and Fluorescent Pink in full effect.
His signature grip is also available in white now. If you want to treat your palms to some luxurious softness, these grips are the way to go.
