Product: DRG Machine Pumpa Knuck Stem

So, not only has The Mainiac just told me he’s back on a bike and itching to ride trails, but he also let me know he’s cranking out these sweet Pumpa Knuck stems along with his ever popular Quad Saw sprockets. He’s even offering custom engraving on them! The Pumpa Knucks have a 51.5mm reach, 25.2mm rise and they sell for a very respectable $60 for raw or $65 for black or green anodized. Add $25 if you want custom engraving on the stem cap. This shit is rad and I can see these knocking Credence/S&M stems off of bikes…

Sneak Peek: DRG Machine PumpaNuck Stem

If you think back to the interview we did with Derrick Girard a fews months ago, you may recall that he mentioned something about having some stem designs modeled up. Well here it is, our first look at the prototype of what he’s dubbed the “PumpaNuck” stem. This could be just what you’re after if you’re looking for a stem to go along with that Quad Saw sprocket! Like I said, this is just a prototype so there’s no time frame on when or even if these will be available. Let’s just all collectively hope that they will be!

Interview: Derrick Girard and the Quad Saw Sprocket

Derrick Girard…. Man, myth, legend…. Those of you who know the name will be excited to read where he’s been and what he’s been up to, and those of you that don’t have probably drooled over his custom machined/engraved sprockets that adorn the steads of some the biggest names in BMX without even knowing the name or the history of the man behind them. He exploded onto the scene and inspired many (myself included) with his skillfully loose and wild beast man style, rode for FBM with the wildest bunch of dudes, had a signature frame called the Deployer and…

Product: DRG Machine Quad Saw Sprocket

Trails LEGEND and half barspin aficionado Derrick Girard, aka “The Mainiac” is the D and G in DRG Machine. I’m sure his middle name is the R, but I don’t know what that is.

Anyway, Derrick has been busy up in Maine making these badass sprockets that he’s dubbed the “Quad Saw.” Currently they’re available in 28t, 33t and 36t sizes, and in your choice of either black or raw. Prices for the 28t and 33t sizes is $51.99 for raw and $53.99 for black anodized. The 36t is only available in…

Flashback: Jersey Riding – Baker’s Acres / Woodbridge Trails Jams

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all aren’t too hungover from all the celebrating that was going on last night.

Clint’s New Brakes

These interesting photos popped up on Clint’s Instagram last week. In a nod to Derrick Girard, he’s taken it about as old school as you can get with a set of sidepull brakes. I couldn’t have been any happier to have ditched these things back in the day when I got my first frame with 990 mounts. I’m assuming from the lawnmower that these modern ones work a bit better than the sidepulls of old. Could this be the hot new setup we’ll be seeing on Credence frames from here on out?
