Cardiel called me up this morning to check out his site that just went up. Break Free Customs is his brand he’s been working on for a bit…hes got a so much nice stuff up on there its definitely worth checking out! Tons of brand new NJS frames, boards, complete bikes, shirts and stickers. Some of what hes got is below but you really gotta check it for everything.
Soulcraft and Una Pizza Napoletana are getting together for this awesome hand made bike and pizza event. If you think about it there really is a slew of frame builders in the northern California area that deserve an event like this…to get together to hang out and be recognized for the work they do! You can bet ill be getting to this next month…if anyone in the area wants to head out im sure ill be driving a few peeps in my car…
For everyone whos been waiting to get a Scrambler…theyre just about here. Preorders opened for the new V3s today so get on it! This version of the Scrambler has the same geometry as its predecessor but with a few additions. The dropout are now laser cut and a different shape which allows a 40c tire to pop into th rear easily. Raw is now a color option along with the black and white available before. Two new features entirely are the top tube gusset and mini cable guides for running a rear brake. These will probably sell out like the last two batches of V2s so dont sleep on it.
Noah added some new stuff to the Eighthinch site to keep it fresh. Some new product categories for freestyle and polo as well as a team rider section. Check the freestyle space for a hint at some new goodies on the way (oh yes…) plus some authentic product shots of the crank and bar bits. Still a few more updates he’ll be making but its coming along nicely!
Subcrew Fai posted a god amount of shots from this years Taipei Cycle Show going on now. Some wild, expensive, random and interesting bits on display. Check those Tange pieces…some crazy stuff in there. Found some info on Bear Bikes but couldnt find anything on Acradia, looks to be a competitively priced freestyle frame and a gorillaish frame. Lots of pricey carbon out there as per most bike shows…and Innes Brun! Anywho…theres a grip of shots on their flickr so peep it!
Saw these over at Prolls earlier today…and was a bit intrigued (posting from a phone can get a bit annoying at times so some things must wait. ha.) The destroyer is looking pretty solid with the only thing worrying me being the drilled dropouts. A lot of people are running pegs these days on freestyle frames and it may pose a problem. Curved top tube on the Dolphin reminds me a bit of a cruiser but i could see it allowing you to slam your seat a bit lower if youre into that. Both of these are nice looking pieces overall…more on these at their home LSD Bikes.
