Product update – Gnarkill frame

We are proud to introduce the Gnarkill frame for 2010. This is Nick Richardson’s new signature frame & takes over from his Bloody Oath frame. Named after Nick’s Greyhound dog, this frame is just as bad ass & fast as his dog. For starters, the down tube sticker is based on Nick’s sleeve tats & it has a skull & cross bones on the head tube as well as cross bones for the seat stay brace. Click here now for all the full details.

Available from September this year, depending on where you live in the planet.

Guettler checks in…

Ryan sent in a quick email on what he has been up to of late. Check it out below.

I’ve been super busy and about to get real crazy, I’m at X Games right now the course is amazing. I can’t wait. Yesterday was a big day, it was the HB Nike 6.0 comp were I came away with 1st place, I’m so pumped. I really liked the course, the beach vibe and every thing fell into place. Check out the video on ridebmx.com, it shows the 95.5 point run. This week I’m also doing an ASA box jump comp which I’ve already won one early this year. I’ll keep you posted on how everything goes this week. On other news I just got twitter.com and facebook.com so come add me and follow what I’m up to. Well I’m off to practice X Games. Have fun – Ryan.

Product update – Clone Hub Guard

Our Clone Hub Guards are finalised after testing & will be available in September this year. Below is the final version that will be available. It is designed so that it replaces the non-drive side cone nut on the hub, eliminating the need to spread the rear end on your frame to fit it all in. They will fit our hubs only though. Full details will be released closer to September.

Happy Birthday Guettler !!

It’s Ryan’s 26th birthday today. It’s crazy how time goes by so fast. Seems like not that long ago that he was only 7 years old. I have known Ryan since he was that age & have so many cool memories during this time. It’s so good to see him follow his dreams & make something really special out of his riding. Don’t kill me for posting these pics here… thanks for everything mate & enjoy your day !!
