United KF22 22″ Complete Bike

United-BMX-KF22-Angle

Can You Dig It posted an interesting interview with Kye Forte in which he gives some insight into the reasons for his recent conversion to 22″ wheels and unveils United Bike Co’s new KF22 complete bike which is due for release next month.  It’s good to finally see a 22 inch complete for those out there who want to try larger wheels but don’t want the hassle of building another custom from scratch or periodically switching parts over to a different frame/wheelset.  United haven’t scrimped on this bike at all, with a number of aftermarket parts as standard, you won’t need to be replacing stuff for a good while, no cheapy chromo pinch-bolt cranks here; you get plenty for your money.

Wethepeople 2016 Envy Complete Bike

wtp_bmx_2016_envy_grey-titan_01-Bearbeitet

It seems like a yearly tradition that a little time after summer I’ll check to see how the next year’s Wethepeople Envy complete bike is fairing up; and it’s fair to say it never disappoints.  The Envy has always been the WMT gold standard bike since it was released in 2009, often used in recent years to sneak out a few unreleased hi-spec products a little early and generally show off just how good a complete bike can get.

wtp_bmx_2016_envy_grey-titan_09

The most notable of new parts showcased in the 2016 edition of the Envy is the 25.4mm (as opposed to the 22.2mm we’ve all been using since day zero) clamping area bar and stem which has been and continues to be tested by riders all over the world with great results.  The increased surface area of the clamp helps to keep taller bars with higher leverage firmly in one place while the taper adds extra material where bars often snap, I’ve personally been riding a set for nearly 6 months now and it’s never slipped on me.
The other new part to drool over is the new Cortex freecoaster that we touched on during the Interbike period. This traditional clutch-type coaster has it’s own way of creating resistance on the clutch without using the typical ‘two sprung bearings’ which wears away at the clutch eventually and can weaken the axle.  We’ve posted the specs bellow but if you want more photos and frame geometry, head over to Wethepeople to peep it.

Exclusive Sneak Peak: Division Brand Complete Bikes

brookside-black

Complete bikes have really changed since I started riding. You can now go out and find a bike specialized to what you want to ride, in the size you want, that comes with the parts you need. That is exactly what Division did, and they brought out 3 models built to take on a handrail straight out of a box. Besides that, they’re some of the best looking bikes I’ve seen in the last few years. I’ll let the photos and specs speak for themselves.

Subrosa 2015 Complete Bikes

subrosa-2015-complete-bmx-bikes

Wow! Subrosa just dropped their 2015 range of complete bikes, and damn do they look good. Plenty of wild two-tone colour schemes and pro-inspired bikes, this years range of bike is looking better than ever! Check them out in the flipbook bellow!

We are so stoked to launch our new 2015 Complete Bike Collection today. Everyone at Subrosa has been working long and hard on these bikes and we are damn proud of the line.

You’ll notice some new additions to the line including the Altus Balance, Altus 16″ and the Malum 26″. I’m very excited about increasing the bikes we offer to cater to everyone from young guns just learning to ride, to the veteran shredders that still want to rage around town.

We’ve also added some awesome new signature models for our pro team members Hoang Tran and Simone Barraco! These bikes are killer and modeled after the bikes they actually ride. This way you can rock a bike like them no matter what your budget is.

Take a look through the catalog, and check out the complete bike product page for all the spec and then hit up your local shop or favorite mailorder to make sure they get the one you want. Bikes will begin arriving worldwide in the beginning of September.
