26″ Cult x VANS tires at the beach

26 01 2017

Cult Bikes and Vans just dropped a video of street phenomenon, Dakota Roche, trying out the 26″ Cult x Vans collab tire.

The tires we checked out last year at Interbike and come stock on the 26″ Cult Devotion.

You would think that Dak would just grab the 26″ Devotion to test out the tires…but Dak had other plans.

Dak went in a bit of a different direction…mounting them on something a bit more “beach-inspired”.

I won’t say that hilarity ensued…but it is kinda amusing.

Check it.

Duff in the buff?

18 02 2016

We first laid on eyes on The Simpson/CULT Duffman cruiser back in 2013.

It was head-turner for a number of reasons:

  • It was a CULT cruiserCULT is usually all about the 20″
  • It was bright orange…with Duffman graphics
  • It was 6061 Aluminum (unusual for a CULT bike)
  • It was a freakin’ Duffman cruiser!

A rad collab bike to be sure.

But as we all know…a nice complete…while cool in its own right, will never be cooler than a custom bike built to a rider’s specifications.

And while many riders will use color for that custom lookBMX Museum member, audiosquare, went the opposite route.

He just didn’t dig the stock orange color.

So he stripped it right down.

Now, it sports a clean aluminum look.

And it totally changed the personality of the bike.

Nice job audiosquare.

The swan song for 24″ Chase Hawk tires?

18 12 2015

After so much teasing, buildup and finally, the introduction of a 24″ Chase Hawk tire…it seems like its days might be numbered.

In a dramatic sponsorship change, almost on par with Primo dropping the Blue Falcon years ago, Odyssey has dropped Chase Hawk from their team.

Understandably, the internets have been going crazy over the last 48 hours with the news.

With Chase off the team, it probably means his signature products are probably on their way out too.

So, if you’ve been on the fence about picking up a pair, you might want to jump on it sooner rather than later.

Sad news all around…although I think Chase is probably going to have no problem finding himself a new co-sponsor (He’s still reppin’ Cult, naturally.)

Maybe Odyssey will consider a 24″ Duggan tire to replace the Hawk tire?

It’s the least they could do in this situation.
