Here’s the word from Martti Kuoppa:
Been riding one for awhile now and it is incredibly reactive and makes things much easier for my body as aging body can sometimes have problems due to riding on a heavier bike.
If you are interested in getting one, please let me know and we can talk about the details then. The production will be based on the demand only and I won´t have frames in stock. Many pro riders are switching on to titanium frames these days. Don´t miss out the benefits of the lightweight frames, and get yours now! If you are interested in buying one of these you can contact me via email.
Lighten your ride, Bizhouse just shared this FM exclusive with us!!
Whilst the Flatmattersonline exclusives have dried up currently, I was stoked to hear from Shawn White over at Bizhouse HQ this morning.
The great news is Bizhouse is still out there, and Shawn continues to make Niche flatland parts no matter how small in order to make your bike ride better.
Cause in point right here: I never really paid attention to excess weight as such:
But why not lighten up your ride with little things like your Pivotal bolt, it all adds up!
Shout out to Bizhouse!!
Hit up Shawn for one of these limited edition Ti Bizhouse Pivotal Bolts:
Some of you may be old enough to remember Andrew Faris rocking the lightweight Aluminum Schwinn Azrael frame back in the day, today there’s an exciting announcement that Viking BMX have just made a Ti frame for the man himself. As well as the frame news, it’s exciting to hear Andrew is still riding. More news to come I’m sure…

Yesterday we featured the IGI RiRi Stem on our instagram page, and Dub kindly hit us up with details on this new IGI creation….
– 6061 ALUMINIUM
– 29MM REACH
– 200 GRAMS
– STACK HEIGHT 43MM
– 5 MM ALLEN BOLTS
STRONG POINTS of the stem are the rounded back part with very minimal edges to bang your knee on. No bolts at the back, so the 4 outer bolts reach the back piece through slots in the middle piece.🔹️💠🔹️ On assembly or disassembly the 2 middle bolts are used to keep the right bar angle and tightened onto the stem, so you don’t lose your bar angle. Small jewel of a stem. 💎
Interesting new video with Jason Forde, reviewing some Chinese products he brought online including
Carbon Rim Wheel, Ti spokes, etc. This is Part one of three, looking forward to seeing how the carbon rim holds up.
Over the last lockdown in particular I have been enjoying Jason Forde’s honest product reviews, the latest which I am a bit late posting is the unboxing of the new We the People Hybrid Freecoaster. Check it out if you haven’t seen this one already!
