The one and only James P Nutter has a bike check over on Collateral that's worth taking a look at it. There's no parts rundown or anything, rather it's just pictures of his S&M Credence M.O.D. setup. Included in those pictures though is one of him holding that new Credence stem that everyone has been drooling over.
Instagram is full of gold today! S&M just posted this new pic of the updated Mainline tires they have in the works. Check out the size on those things! 2.425! No information yet other than that they are coming soon, but as soon as I hear more I'll post it up.
This is future ebay gold right here! S&M did a very limited run of these things, and I'm not even sure if they're still available. Their online store isn't showing any so they might have already been swooped up.
S&M has a deal going right now where you can get their P-Rail Padded Seat, Long Johnson Pivotal Seat Post, and P-Guts all for $49.97 from their web store. Just add all three to your cart and your set. That's a pretty good deal if you ask me, considering seats alone are approaching the forty dollar mark. Plus with the added length of the Long Johnson post you could bring back double trucks. You could also cut it down if three fist of post isn't your thing. Head over to S&M to get in on the deal.
S&M just did a run of their Credence bars in chrome that would go exceptionally well with the chrome C.C.R. frame that they dropped a few weeks ago. I wouldn't slack if you want a pair because according to them "These beautiful bicycle handles are here today, but could be gone tomorrow. Want a pair, pick ‘em up while you can!"
There’s been a good amount of buzz around 22″ wheeled bikes lately. Some of it is curiosity as to how they ride, and some of it is taller guys looking for something more accommodating. Shawn Shimkets is one of those taller guys who you look at and wonder how in the hell they ride a BMX bike. Up until the 22s came out he was rocking a custom Standard with a 22″ top tube. Shawn shreds so it seemed to be working for him but when the opportunity came up to get on something bigger he jumped at it. He put together this really in depth video comparison between two of the more known 22″ wheeled bikes out right now. The S&M Holmes 22″ has been out for a few months now, while the Faction Amero is a newcomer to the scene. Faction isn’t new though! They have been producing 22″ wheeled bikes for a few years now and could be considered the pioneer of them. If 22s are something that have piqued your curiosity then you’ll definitely want to check out this video.
Head over to Deluxe and check out Joey Gough's freshly rebuilt bike. I totally forgot that Deluxe did a run of frames with v-brake mounts. I've never had a bike with v-brakes, but I used to really want one. Back before the S&M Bennett frame came out my friends and I had a weird theory that it was going to have upside down v-brake mounts. It made sense at the time considering he rode a Challenger. Anyway, that didn't happen and I in turn never had a bike with v-brakes.
