Bombing.

January 15, 2010

Bomb Hills Speed Kills just posted a great write up on ‘The death of the hill bomber’ due to the great rise in popularity of the freestyle trick rider.

I think its because hill bombing is assumed to be an activity calling for little to no skill and therefore, doesn’t have that wow factor. but regardless of that notion, hill bombing is still exhilarating no matter what kind of fixed gear the bombing takes place on. risers, and the low gear ratio of a fixed freestyle machine- not all is lost. as long as there are no brakes and there are fixed cogs, bombing has purpose.

Well worth a read and I for one agree, hell it is why I got into this sort of riding in the first place!

Oh Sh*t.

I am not personally into trick riding myself but this fakie wheelie just killed it for me.

New Brooklyn.

“The Launchpad” is our new “trick specific/700cmx/fixed freestyle” frame. The first frames are nearing completion and should be trickling out to paint in the next week. All of the first batch is spoken for but some will be available in shops that have preordered them. Our friends in LA, Orange 20 are first on the list to have some in stock. The bros at WBASE ,Chari & Co. and Tokyo Fixed Gear are all on the list to have frames soon too. If you can’t get your hands on one from this first run, we will be taking orders for the next, hopefully to be completed in the very near future.

“The Launchpad” is going to be offered in long and short top-tube versions with the option of either a Mid or Euro bottom bracket shell with a 45×45 integrated headtube. Color options are black, red, and clear. The long version has a taller standover and slightly steeper HT angle than the short. Overall, the geometry of this frame isn’t a much of a departure from the “Gangsta”. This thing is more stout than it’s older brother and has ample tire clearance. We’re pretty stoked on it and the addition of our “Clusterfork” is going to make for a kickass frameset that sells for $850MSRP and is handmade here in Brooklyn.

Slowly beginning to feel the top tube that slopes the ‘wrong’ way!

Leader Trick Steez.

July 30, 2009

As far as trick specific frames go these Leaders look pretty good, however I would love to see one with a set of wheels in.

My favourite element on these has to be the heavy ass gusseting on the head cluster… Reminds me a lot of my old downhill bike after I cracked it and had a pal weld some sh*t on!
