You may have caught word on social media like I did with Kip Williamson shredding on a new frame. I reached out to Kip for more details, read on.
Introducing the Subrosa “Body Snatcher” flatland frame. I’ve been working with Subrosa for over 2 years to bring this to fruition. I’ve ridden it now for a couple of weeks and it feels amazing! It’s incredibly strong and has lots of features. This is a prototype so specs are subject to change. I’d like to thank GL, Ryan Sher, and Ronnie B. for helping make this dream into reality! More info coming soon.
Here’s the word from Dub on Flat System 009, do you use a Far East free coaster? This episode is for you!
“It’s been a minute since the last episode, but better late than never so here we go again! So this episode of FLAT SYSTEM is more of a tech tip than a podcast or wtv these things are called!. Since many riders are now using the FEC Freecoaster hub as their engine of choice, especially in Flatland, it is my duty to make small tech tip videos on taking care of that engine! This one is about how to change your pawls and springs on the hub when you start having too much slippage! Let me know what you think, if this helps, or not and if you have any questions or suggestions on the next episode! You can find IGI and FEC parts information at www.igibmx.com, or on instagram at @igiflatbmx.”
You fed up of smashing your knee on your stem? @heresybmx have the answer, this stem pad is clean! Got to see this in the flesh at @fiseworld Montpellier, and this product is now available at all good bike shops or direct from the HY website!
HUGE news today from Japan, one of the best riders in the game. Hiroya Morizaki just started his own bike brand, over to Hiroya!
“I just started a new bike brand, Crown. First, let me introduce the new sample that just arrived.
The first frame is based on Delta, which I used to design for Quamen Bikes, a California-based BMX frame company back in 2005, and improved the design suitable for the modern flatland needs.
The fork is initially designed for the Garuda frame of Aresbikes but pursing as small a clearance as possible and shortens the length of the fork for the best possible usability at doing various types of tricks, front and back tricks, rolling, and spinning.
Every detail of geometries results from numerous tries and errors over two years. I’ll keep testing until the release, although the production schedule is still up in the air due to the COVID situation. Stay tuned!
It’s been a while since any updates, I have rushed off my feet with the success of Declan Brooks in the Olympics taking a bronze medal! Let’s get back to it, with Dub’s latest Flat System video which dropped last week. Dub discusses the Olympics, getting more female riders involved, Flat Queens, and the IGI Backwoods Jam. Love that Dub is doing this regularly! Tune in, good vibes right here!
