Just caught this bikecheck on the St Martin website (link below), check out Norber Bükki’s 2008 STM ride…

You go through a lot of frames, what’s different with this one?
I’m super stoked on the new frame and bars that we have come up with! Because I do a lot of whip and decade style stuff it is really hard on frames. On this frame the main focus was strength and it has been holding on real nice. It is the strongest frame I’ve ridden so far without having any problems with it.
It has thicker tubing, built in gussets on down and toptube, tubing is double butted and the toptube is slightly higher to get the best angle to withstand stress. It is slightly heavier, weighing around 2 kg but it feels super stable.
It should be going into production soon and it will be available in 19,2, 19,5, 20 and 20,5 ” toptube sizes.
Any modifications: The white stripes on my tyres!
I cut down my forks steerer tube, because nowadays everything is topload and very high so there’s no need for soo many spacers plus it looks real clean.
Anything specific to you that you must have on your own ride: A bit ghetto’ish look.
Sponsors: Red Bull, Jungle Rider, Vans.
Advice to beginners on bike set ups? Don’t rush on taking off the brakes, they are useful on learning all the basics which will really come in handy in the future.
Thanks Bert! See you at the Worlds!

Matthias has a bikecheck over on the Data BMX website, the interview part is in French. Worth a look anyway to see what he’s running these days…
Alex just set up a dope new looking Foot Jam bike, heres the word from the main man himself….
“The story behind it is that i was really into having a army green flat color bike for a long time, I’ve been riding a chrome bike for so long so it is different for me…
The past 2 years I was trying to ride a 19.4 and 20. 5 and finally due to my small size the best frame size is 18.7 hahahahaha”
