If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll have noticed that the whole Ruff team mysteriously switched over to some new black frames that nobody has said anything about. Well me being the fixie journalist that I am, I am here to BREAK THE SILENCE AND BE THE WHISTLEBLOWER THAT YOU DESERVE! BIG FIXIE DOESN’T WANT YOU TO HEAR ABOUT THIS.
Jk, they’re just some new prototypes that we’ve all been testing out. What’s different? Tighter geometry and less weight mostly. Maybe some other technical jargon that I’m not sure about. I can confidently say this geometry is the best I’ve felt though and I’m excited for productions to run on them some day (who knows with the way production is these days). Anyways, here’s some pics of my bike I snagged while out in Atlanta, when it still looked new (ish).
If you’re in the market for bars on the taller side, 2 Wheel Gang aka Blocboi Fame just dropped his first run of bars! These bad boys clock in at 7.5″ tall and 30″ wide, they come in 4 sick colors too. Check em’ out here!
Destroy just released their new “Destroy Unicorn Killer Comp” frame and it looks killer. A more compact version of their famous Unicorn Killer series. Thing looks ready to shred out the gate. Heres what Destroy has to say about it:
“The evolution of a classic DESTROY FGFS Frame. Built for all around carnage on the street at the park heck why not dirt. A compact version of the frame that set modern day FGFS. Now with a geometry oriented to fit a greater range of riders while offering a centered and reliable under body feel.
With the idea always being that the UNICORN KILLER COMP would be put though constant torture we complimented this frame with one of our strongest rear ends and dropouts that fit 14mm axels.”
The homie Guillermo aka Memo just revealed his signature frame with Skream Bikes! Skream boasts the versatility of the frame with features like 700c barspin clearance and wide tire clearance (42c). Seems like a great all around frame. Now available here for HK$5,900.00 (About $760 USD).
Fixated out of the Netherlands just announced that they have a sprocket releasing in about a week! This thing looks sick. Guard sprocket compatible, 48 spline, comes in 19mm, 22mm, and 24mm. Hefty price point ay 90€, but good splined sprockets are definitely something the scene has been running dry on, so this is great to see. Hit them up at email@example.com for orders and questions!
