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!

Product Spotlight: Relic Eon Stem

Clean, simple and durable parts are what Relic is known for, and not surprisingly their Eon stem ticks all of those boxes. The Eon is Chad Osburn’s signature stem and if you’ve seen Chad ride, then you know that he demands a lot from the parts he runs. On the outside the Eon’s 6061 T6 aluminum cap and body are smooth and free of any crazy cutouts, just a small logo machined into the bottom of the body and Relic machined into the cap.

Call me jaded, but having lived through the mid to late 2000s era of every schmo who had ever swung a leg over a twenty inch starting a BMX company, I generally don’t get too excited when I hear about a new brand being launched. There have been a few exceptions though, and hearing that UK legend Ashley Charles was starting his own brand was one of them. It’s been a little over a year and a half since Ash launched Relic BMX, and in that time their line has slowly and thoughtfully grown to include two stems, a sprocket,…

Clint Reynolds – Welcome to Relic

Here’s one that I didn’t see coming, but thinking about it, it makes perfect sense. Clint is now flying the flag for Relic! Seeing as things have been quiet with Clint’s previous parts sponsor (Tree) for some time now, I was thinking that it would be just a matter of time before someone swooped him up. Relic is a perfect fit if you ask me, and apparently Ashley Charles feels the same. You can check out what he had to say after the jump, and after you get done watching this quick welcome video!
