We’ve been working on this for a while but now it’s finally time to make an official announcement. The CYDI Store is now the CYDI Speed Shop! On top of it being the place to find the stuff we make, it’s also stocked with a curated selection parts to keep your bike dialed in, from brands that support and make products geared towards trail riders. We’ve got it loaded up with a bunch of stuff from S&M, Deluxe, Fit, Kink, Relic, Duo, ODI, Mission and Merritt, and over the next several weeks we’ll be adding more parts and eventually frames….
Kink threw together a collection of what they consider Chris Doyle’s “finest moments on dirt” since he’s been on the team. Good stuff in here for sure, but that 720 he did in Anthem II over the big jump at Potoczny’s needs to be in here!
Kink went with Matte Hunter Orange and Static Gray for their annual late summer update of the Mudrunner frame’s colors, both of which are pretty fresh IMO. Don’t worry though if you’re not feeling them, Black ED, Matte Trans Copper and Trans Black and Tan are still available. The frame’s specs and geometry remain the same as last year (which you can check out below). Whatever color you choose, you can pick up a Mudrunner from any of Kink’s retailers or straight from their web store.
It’s that time where we see manufacturers giving their products a little facelift for the upcoming model year. For the Kink Mudrunner frame that facelift comes in the way of two new colors, Trans Black and Tan, and Chad Osburn’s signature Matte Trans Copper. The Mudrunner’s geometry remains the same and you can also still get it in Black, Raw, Trans Black, or Trans Red. I’d be going for that Trans Black and Tan though!
We as trail riders have a slight tendency to ride frames and parts a lot longer than we really should. It’s nothing for someone to show up in the woods still rocking a frame with an American bottom bracket and press fit headset, (Shawn Shoener, I’m looking in your direction). The thing about it is that both frames and parts really should be replaced every a few years. No one wants to find themselves in a twisted ball of metal and flesh because something catastrophically failed due to fatigue. Take a second to think about the forces and stress that…
I saw Chris Doyle’s section from Kink’s Intervention video floating around other sites today and totally blanked on it having trails in it. Sorry D-Man! Hit play and you’re instantly treated to a run that only Chris could put together through Monroeville’s Chicane line.
There’s been a ton of hype and leading up to Kink’s latest full length release, Intervention. Perhaps you caught the livestream premiere over the weekend. I was assuming that Doyle’s part would be the only speck of trails in it so I didn’t make it a priority to catch it on that first go around; plus I knew that Kink would be releasing the video on Youtube today. My assumption was correct and Doyle’s part is indeed where you need to go to find some trails. It comes in the form of Monroeville and it gets rolling at the 16:09…
Chris Doyle let the world know that his signature trans black Kink Mudrunner colorway is available now with this pic he posted on Instagram this morning. I think we’re all pretty familiar with the Mudrunner by now, but by all means make your way over to Kink’s site for all the details and specs if you’re not. Click HERE if you need help finding a place where you can pick one up.
That trans red colorway of Kink’s Mudrunner frame that they showed off a couple of months back is now available at your favorite retailer of Kink goods. Need help finding one close to you? Hit up their dealer locator HERE.
We already know that Kink has a Chris Doyle signature Mudrunner colorway in the works but here’s another new color that just popped up their Instagram. No word on exactly when this sweet looking trans red or Doyle’s colorway will be dropping but I’d suspect it won’t be all too long until you’ll be able to get your hands on them.
