Product highlight – Hell Stallion & Forks

Liam Fahy-Hampton is the kind of rider who always surprises me with something different every time I see him ride. He definately looks outside the square & comes up with some really original ideas on & off the bike.

His signature frame & fork were designed with that same principal in mind. His frame is low, super responsive & super tough. His forks are built to withstand the torture that his brand of riding produces on a daily basis.

Check them out at a shop near you now or check our products section here & here for more info.

Tempting?

Guettler took a bunch of product pics for me a few weeks ago. This is one of my favourites of them, it’s so very tempting to put a new bike together with all these new colours. All these parts & more are available at a store near you now.

Product highlight – Pivotal Seats

These days with the many Pivotal seats available on the market it’s kinda hard to come out with anything new or different. Well, we have done our bit to try to do something a little different & have come out with a coloured plastic base seat using the Pivotal patented technology. Check one out at a store near you now. Available in both Slim & Mid styles.

Product highlight – Official Stem

Ryan Guettler’s Official stem is still one of my favourite products we have put out since we started as a company a few years ago. I guess it’s just the mixture of it’s unique look, clean design, light weight & overall finish of the stem that I like so much. Many other riders out there must feel the same since our stem is one of the most popular stems on the market. Check one out at a store near you now & see what you think yourself.
