Since its introduction in 2005, the VERMONT sprocket has become a staple in the drive train category. For 2010, the five year anniversary, the VERMONT deserves an update. Following similar lines, The BURLINGTON sprocket is an improved, stiffer, stronger version of its predecessor, that also benefits from the new Incisor teeth profile.

Available now in Black, Gold, Blue and Red for 25t, 27t and 28t sizes. 23t is available in Black, with other colors coming soon.

To celebrate the Vermont sprocket’s 5 year anniversary, we gave it a bit of an upgrade and it is now dubbed Burlington. With similar lines as the original, the Burlington is stiffer, stronger and benefits from the new Incisor teeth profile (same profile as the Chainwheel). Click around the flipbook above to check it out.

Available now in Black, Gold, Blue and Red for 25t, 27t and 28t sizes. 23t is available in Black, with other colors coming 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.

Greyboy and Truly have a bike check up on the Ride site, along with an interview about Impakt Sidehacks and an online version of their Sidehack Love article from earlier this year. Constantly carrying 315lbs plus the force of landings and grinds, these 3 wheeled cousins can take and handle a lot of abuse. Check out the bike check to see what type of parts they’re running on it!

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!
