This picture of a Credence C.C.R in a color dubbed “Amber Ale” popped up on S&M sales guy Dylan’s Instagram the other day. It looks very similar to the same trans gold color that some other S&M frames are available in. It did get me to thinking that they should give that color a little more red tint and come out with a C.C.R. in a Yuengling colorway! Check out the comparison pic after the jump to see what I mean!
Clint Reynolds’ “Fascist Killing Machine” is the subject of the latest DIG Setups. Along with the bike check we also get a little interview that contains a few tantalizing bits of info. Credence grips, even bigger bars, and the possibility of a Credence tire! Head on over to DIG for the bike check and the full scoop!
Here’s a little something I noticed when I was perusing S&M’s site this morning! In a addition to flat black, dark roast and regular chrome, their Credence C.C.R. frames are also available smoked chrome. Like most things that look this sexy, it will cost you a bit more than the regular plain jane painted versions. You can expect your wallet to be $419.99 lighter if you want to take one of these home. Both the S&M Web Store and Empire BMX have all three sizes (21, 21.5 and 21.5″) in stock, but I wouldn’t count on that being the case…
I had my flashback post for this week all picked out and ready to go but then Schwartz reminded me of this gem from the Clint and the Eastside Crew. I don’t know what’s the best part of this, the riding, Tom Dugan looking like he’s never used a shovel before, or the ball breaking he receives for not being able to use said shovel properly.
YES! That’s the answer to all the questions you all have had as to whether or not the prototype 9.25″ x 30″ S&M Credence bars that Clint was testing will go into production. They’re called the Credence XL bars, and they’ll be available early next month! With that glorious news also comes news that the venerable C.C.R. frame is getting some updates in the way of an engraved head tube and the option to either route your cable through the seat tube or around it. Like the bars, the updated C.C.R. frames will be out early next month, and both…
I know I’ve said it before, but there have been so many good videos these last few weeks. This one from PA Woods is up there amongst my favorites!
Janis has made quite a return to video making with these last few PA Woods edits. This third and final one of the year is my personal favorite because it really conveys the sense of not just how much fun riding trails is, but also how much fun it is just being in the woods with friends. Poor Schwartz at the end though!
We all knew that Clint Reynolds was number one, but he’s finally getting that recognition from people outside of the trails scene; first with a NORA award, and now with an official decree from xgames.com. The later comes with the above video compilation of footage, photos, and some very good words about Mr. Reynolds. If you’re on the main page you’ll have to click into the post to get to the video. Sorry, the X Games player is a little wonky!
Clint posted up this picture of some new prototype Credence bars he’s trying out. They retain the same 3° upsweep and 11° backsweep as the current Credence bars, but have been scaled up to 9.25″ tall and 30″ wide. There are definitely a lot of aging backs out there that will appreciate that! No word on when or if these will make it into production but if I were a betting man, I’d put my money on it.
With Clint winning NORA last night, I can’t not post up a Credence flashback! I can’t believe that this promo for the C.C.R. and M.O.D. frames and the Credence bars is already almost two years old.
