Take a chrome Speedwagon home

19 04 2017

And now to add a bit more sizzle to the souped up S&M Speedwagon 24S&M has dropped the chrome version!

Hot damn, this looks good.

I’m kinda sweatin’ this frame now.

Check the previous post for more details on the updated Speedwagon 24…and of course, hit up your S&M dealer to score one of these bad boys.

S&M soups up the Speedwagon 24

6 04 2017

Chris Moeller wanted a little more clearance to run bigger sprockets on his race cruiser…so as any good bike company owner would do…he redesigned S&M’s flagship race cruiser, the 24″ Speedwagon!

We got the first inklings of this when Moeller teased a sneak peek pic of the prototype on his Instagram page.

He said wanted to be able to run 42-18 gearing, so he incorporated a monostay into the frame to let him do it (making it somewhat similar to the old 38 Special design).

He followed that up with a closeup pic of the monostay a day later (love me some trans red!)

Now, word on the street is…they’re already available!

You can get them in clear, black, trans blue and trans red!

A chrome option is also slated for arrival in a few weeks.

Hot damn.

Spring Fling Sneak Peeks

3 04 2017

The annual “Spring Fling” happened down in Florida this past weekend and from all indications it looked like it was off the hook (Do people still say that?).

In addition to bringing together a bunch of rowdy BMXers, it was also where quite a few 2018 sneak peeks went down.

SE bikesTodd Lyons brought a bunch of cruisers from their yet-to-be-released lineup and he wasn’t shy about showing them off.

Some bikes have changed in size for 2018, like the Mike Buff Looptail…which now rolls out with 29″ wheels…

We went big this year!🎉💪🏽🎉 #mikebuff #bigripper #29weekspregnant @mikebuff_

A post shared by Todd Lyons (@toddlyons) on

…and the Stu Thomsen STR…which is now in a available in a 26″ version.

The Cycle Squad Maniacs were on hand showcasing the new eye-popping SE Factory Squad threads. (You’re not going to miss this race kit!)

Todd Lyons and rrdblocks also showcased the wheelie proficiency of the new Big Flyers (available in two different colorways).

I think I’m most stoked on the STR-26…or maybe it’s just that picture of Stompin’ Stu roosting on it!





Reign in blood

28 03 2017

Stolen Bikes recently put together a limited-run colorway of their 24″ Gold frame and fork sets…and do they ever look cool!

Featuring a blood spatter paint job…you’ll be sure to reign in blood wherever you roll on one of these bad boys.

The catch?

Only 5 were made…and at last check, only 3 (maybe less) are still available.

Don’t sleep on this…get the horn asap to your Stolen dealer if you want to score one of these limited-run frame & fork sets.

The price is approximately $500 (US) and set features heat treated and butted cromoly thoughout.

Click here for a complete spec breakdown.

Can’t wait to see one of these frame sets built up!

First look: Kuwahara Retro Cruiser

4 03 2017

Word on the street is that Kuwahara is jumping on the retro trend and introducing a 24″ Retro BMX cruiser later this year.

So much chrome-y goodness.

Someone better alert Michael Strahan that this bike is coming on the market!





Everything’s coming up Van Halen

2 03 2017

Might as well jump to the stereo and cue up the “Panama” track because Flite Pads is introducing a new Van Halen-inspired pad set!

van-halen-pad-setHot damn these are cool.

Kinda reminds me of Tom Johnson’s custom 24″Standard cruiser from a few years back.

Let’s just hope they don’t end up like Van Homan‘s Mean Street frame.





Floval Flyer flashback video

23 02 2017

I kinda freaked out when I got my first look at the 2017 SE Floval Flyer last summer.

It was so retro-cool, chock full of throwback parts and gold ano…it got me right in the feels.

Now, SE’s back with a promo video for it that evokes the scratchy VHS vibe of old BMX videos.

It’s pulling at my heart strings all over again.

Dang you SE and your clever marketing!
