Supreme/Brooklyn Machine Works collab

23 03 2018

Brace yourself for some sticker shock….

Supreme and Brooklyn Machine Works teamed up to create a collab cruiser…with a $47,000* price tag! Yowza!

I’m not sure who this was created for specifically…but you can probably build quite a quiver of bikes (or stock a decent-sized bike shop) with that kind of outlay.

*rough conversion of 5,000,000 yen.

Brooklyn Machine Works brings back a 24

14 09 2015

It’s been a minute since Brooklyn Machine Works has had a 24″ cruiser in its lineup (they offered a cruiser in 1997 and later, their Pooky cruiser in 2004) but it looks like the wait has been worth it!

The company, backed by Pharrell Williams and Nigel Sylvester, has a history of interesting bikes and projects.

This cruiser, built in the USA, is no different. Constructed out of 4130 Cro-Mo, it features all the modern touches, such as an integrated headset, 14MM dropouts and a mid bottom bracket.

BMW CRUISER MattRaw buildIt has a nice, versatile geometry which means that you can probably ride this bike just about anywhere — street, trails, even the track.

Here’s a breakdown of the specs:

  • Top Tube: 21.8″
  • Head Angle: 73° (Integrated)
  • Seat Angle: 73°
  • Chain Stay: 14.75″-15.25″
  • BB: 12.2″ (Mid)
  • Dropouts: 14mm
  • Brake Mounts: V-Brake

You can score one of these bad boys in Matte Raw, Yellow, Green and Night Sky Blue.

Pharrell Williams & Nigel Sylvester talk BMX

14 03 2014

Pharrell Williams seems to be everywhere these days.

From award shows to curating design exhibitions and everywhere in between, Pharrell Williams is in the media spotlight in a big way.

But did I expect to see him show up in an edit with Nigel Sylvester talking BMX?

No way.

But here we are.

This follows on the heels of last year’s announcement that the pair were collaborating to create Brooklyn Machine Works complete BMX bikes.

Looks like a pretty cool project for the both of them.

I think we’re in for some cool stuff from these two.
