I don’t get nostalgic about bike parts and frames, but the Hoffman Bikes Big Daddy is one frame I wish I never got rid of. This one holds great memories for me and I am stoked to see the re-release of this classic frame with modern day geometry. Here’s the word from Mat Hoffman…
“It just landed in LA and is on it’s way to headquarters in OKC. It is still about a week out, but I’ve made them available to order now. Kevin Jones signature Big Daddy frame is back with OG look but with modern geometry.

Jean William Prevost interviewed 8 riders from 8 countries and asked how they feel about the importance of grassroots events vs big corporate ones in Flatland. Head over to Our BMX for an interesting read if you haven’t already.
For a couple of years I would meet up with Cory Fester at the Intrikat Jam in Long Beach California, and pieces of this amazing line for the 2014 Battle in the Rockies come into my mind. I remember hours of crashing on the last switch handed fork wheelie jump through the frame to backwards halfpacker in the LBC underground, Cory’s dedication is next level! Five years on, this line is still absolutely cutting edge. Respect Cory!
Episode 43 of the Space Brothers Podcast is a must listen! Kip Williamson and Chip Riggs catch up with the man behind inTRIKat, Chad Johnston where they dig deep into Chad’s riding roots, getting into making videos, pegless riding, riding for S&M and a whole lot more. This is absolutely amazing!
Matt Wilhelm revisits his old riding spot where he rode as a kid at Brandt Park in Oak Lawn, Illnois 25 years later. Great idea for an edit, and amazingly enough, Matt was in a Hoffman Bikes t-shirt back in the day already and still is in 2019. Well worth a watch!
Great edit from the Battle in the Rockies pre jam by Anthony Schneidewind from the Colorado Springs Convention Centre with a halloween theme running throughout. That’s got to be one of the biggest contest areas ever, quality riding from all levels in this one. Enjoy!
