First look: S&M 29″ Pounding Beer forks

9 08 2018

As surprising as it is to see a 29″ fork from S&M Bikes, this is legit!

Apparently despite the popularity of 29″ cruisers from SE Bikes, 29″ replacement forks are hard to come by.

Sensing a market opportunity, the guys at S&M stepped in (stepped up?) to answer the call. Sporting¬† similar styling and a name that’s reminiscent (or at least rhymes) with the iconic “Landing Gear” this is now available for order from Planet BMX.

Dubbed the “Pounding Beer” fork, it’s a bit tongue in cheek…but would you expect anything less from S&M?

Available in white, black or chrome-plated.

Ready for a 29″ GT Pro Performer?

21 07 2017

Well, what is this now?

Looks like GT wasn’t satisfied with upsizing the old school Performer to a 26er.

New for 2018, GT has gone and supersized the Pro Performer!

We’re talking 29″ wheels here folks.

I’m not sure if they’re trying to cash in on some of that 29″ following that the SE Big Ripper has been enjoying…but nevertheless it’ll be hitting BMX shops soon.

Personally, I dig the old school colorway. It’s got me thinking about digging up some old Eddie Fiola videos and reliving the golden era of freestyle.

Riding-wise though, I wish they would’ve gone with a 24″ version of the Performer with some new school geo…similar to what SE did with the 24″ Quadangle.

Now that’s something like that would get me interested!

In it’s present 29″ form though?

I’ll take a pass.
