Shawn White over at Bizhouse HQ just published this comprehensive how-to build a Profile Z Coaster wheel. I say comprehensive as it’s just over an hour long. So if you ever need some tips, you can refer to this!
Shawn White over at Bizhouse is always thinking of new products to keep us all rolling. Peep the new tall stackers, if you run a lot of stackers under your stem this going to be way neater option for you.
No word on release date, but I would imagine available pretty soon.
Yesterday I caught a photo (see above) of Lee Musselwhite’s signature Deco prototype. I hit Lee up for some info, here is what he had to say about the frame:
“I’ve been testing my signature Deco frame for just over a year now and it rides awesome, so stoked Chad put this together for me it’s got really tight geometry 18.8TT & 13″CS so is very responsive and rigid. Perfect for back and front wheel tricks. No plans for production at mo, unless chad get a flood of emails asking for one hahah”.

Our latest products.
Classic Flatland zero offset forks : DESCEND ZERO
Flatland 4 piece bars : DISMEMBER 8,25″ and DISMEMBER 8,75″
Flatland and Street hybrid forks : DESCEND 0/15
Riding street and park again for a couple years now, I’ve been dreaming about these flatland and street parts, hoping to make a bike as functional as possible for both kinds of riding, including when both meet. We designed the DESCEND 0/15 with our longer sizes of AscenD frames (20″ & 20,5″) in mind. I’ve always felt that forks were an issue if you wanted to ride more than flatland. The 15mm offset has proved to be a good offset if you need to bring in some of your front wheel flat moves to street and it’s also OK for transitions but I do prefer zero offset for flatland, it’s more reactive, especially riding a longer frame — the dilemma is over and these forks are freedom. Male or female hub, it is really easy to switch from the zero offset to the 15mm offset if you want to go ride street or park.
Have a fun session!
