Here’s one for all of you who have been asking if we’re ever going to do some more of those cable guides we had a few years back. We probably won’t, but allow us to send you in the direction of our friends at Alliance. They’ve come out with some guides all their own (don’t worry, they had our blessing!), and for just $12 shipped you can tidy up that cable routing with a guide from them. Their online store isn’t quite set up just yet so you’ll have to shoot Jamie an email ([email protected]) to get one.
Better act fast if your fancy has been tickled by Alliance’s new V5 frame! March 3rd is the cutoff date for pre-orders, so that gives you just over a week to get your money right and get it to Jamie to secure yourself one. For Canadian residents pre-orders will be a $450 CAD deposit. If you live elsewhere in the world there will be a different pricing structure. Shoot Jamie an email to [email protected] and he will give you all the details!
Disregard this if you already follow Alliance Bike Co on Insta or FB, but for those of you who for some reason don’t, here’s a peek at and the specs on the prototype Alliance V5 frame. Things are liable to change a bit with the production versions, one definitely being the location of the integrated seat clamp. That’s getting moved up to the more traditional spot at the top of the seat tube (a change I fully support). This thing is looking pretty damn dialed already! Hit the jump to check it out.
Remember back in the summer when I posted about Alliance Bike Co possibly making a comeback? Well, that comeback is definitely happening and these reissued logo shirts are the first part of it. Frames are also in the works but you’ll have to wait a couple of months for those. Whether you want to pick up a shirt or get on the pre-order list for a frame, shooting an email off to Jamie is the way to go about it. Get at him HERE!
Here’s a blast from the past! For those of you who aren’t familiar with that logo, Alliance was a Canadian company that was the brainchild of Jamie Delaney back in the early to mid-2000s. Just when they seemed to be getting a good foothold in the BMX market with their PSI frames, half-links and soft goods, they vanished out of the blue. Fast forward a decade or so and it looks like Jamie may be bringing the brand back from the dead. Shirts are already in the works and there’s even talk about the possibility of a new frame. You…
I once again have to thank Christian Ziegler for tipping me off to another trails video hiding on MPORA! This one is from the InterContinental Trails Jam held at the Motion Trails. I’m a little bit fuzzy on what made it “InterContinental”, but I don’t think it really matters.
