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…
Today Rob Alton’s Sport Zone contest is going down over in Hungary, and OG Marton just dropped a timely promo for his new M 18 handlebar for his company, OG Bike Co. Who better to do the promo than young buck in the Hungarian flatland scene, Fülöp Vidákovich! This guy kills the front, back wheel and even throws some radiative too! If you interested in the OG bars you can contact OG Marton at: firstname.lastname@example.org or contact http://www.fourpegsbmx.com
Riders like James McGraw and Pete Brandt swear by the Odyssey Clutch free coaster, the teamover at Odyssey HQ just fired out this promo for the new and improved v2 hub. Although there is no flatland, theres still a lot of tech moves that cross over, take a peak. Info on the hub and improvement towards the end.
Far East Cycles hub inventor Ashao gets together with Jean William Prévost to take the hub apart and put it back together as they give some tips on how to use it and assemble/disassemble it correctly. Enjoy!
Yuki Itoh just dropped some exciting product news, he just got a well deserved “N Code” signature bar with Far East Cycles. Nice to see something a little different than the usual 2 piece bar design. Specs can be seen below.
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.
Besides the amazing edits recently from Akira Okamura and today from Sebastian Grubinger. It is really good to see riders reviewing products, really enjoyed this in-depth review of the IGI BMX Peg by Kevin Meyer and Joris Bretagnolles, good work with english subtitles.

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.”
The popular Chad Johnston designed S&M Intrikat frame is back in store at Flatland Fuel, if you are looking for a new frame for 2018. This might well be the one for you, for all the sizes and specs hit the link below !
