The Hoffman Bikes Big Daddy is back!

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.

Throwback Thursdays – Cory Fester / Battle in the Rockies Video Contest

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!
