The return of Hoffman Bikes Big Daddy!

I’ve known about this news for a while, but the official word just broke online from Mat Hoffman himself:

“These are almost in production. Kevin (Jones) rode and went through the prototype and made his corrections. We are being very meticulous to make Kevin stoked and keep it up to his standard. No ETA date yet, but I will post here as soon as I know. Also you’ll notice the tubing is a thinner OD. This was a request form Kevin to make it lighter. Here’s a mock up from the first prototype of what the decals will be too… thanks -Mat”.

Exciting news, whose tempted with this? I know I am…

Bizhouse Brooklyn Mod

Are brakes coming back? There have been some interesting developments happening in BMX recently. Bizhouse’s Shawn White hit me up late last night with this Brooklyn Mod concept which was developed along with Carlos Coste. The idea is to do away with welds on your AD lugs, so you buy forks, drill the holes yourself and boom your done. Time will tell if this works and if you trust yourself with a drill. Let’s discuss this one in the comments section.

Alex Jumelin’s Signature “Humble” Coast Cycle Frame

The news broke yesterday, Alex Jumelin kept us all guessing and we got it wrong. Alex Jumelin’s signature “Humble” frame will be released from Coast Cycles out of Singapore. So far no word on the specs of the frame.

Here’s what Alex had to say on his instagram:
“Coast Cycles is more than a BMX company. Coast is a bike label with a strong knowledge in the bike industry. Quality, strong and light. We worked really hard with the team in Singapore to have this first prototype ready for the new contest season. I’ll be in Singapore next week to test it and film an edit.”
