2016 Trails Frame Buyers Guide

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…

8 Seconds of Kush

Shot out to Kyle Hirschkorn for pointing out that there’s 8 seconds of Hucker riding Kush in this trailer for S&M’s new DVD. I totally missed it when I was skipping through the first time looking for any trails footy. 01:21 is where you’ll find it!

S&M BMX Credence C.C.R. Frame Smoked Chrome

Product: Smoked Chrome Credence C.C.R. Frame

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…

Credence XL Bars and Updated C.C.R. Frames

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.

Up Close: S&M Trackmark Tire

A couple of weeks ago we looked at S&M’s Mainline tire. Today we’re going to get a gander what S&M says is the perfect rear tire to compliment it in the woods, the Trackmark. S&M bills the Trackmark as their race tire but don’t go thinking that this is anything like the overly knobby motocross-esque race tires of old. The Trackmark was designed for modern day racing applications, aka well groomed and packed tracks. Sounds similar to the way trails are these days doesn’t it? In order to make the Trackmark appeal to the weight weenie racers out there, S&M…

Up Close: S&M Mainline 2.425″ Tire

The 2.425″ S&M Mainline tire has been gathering quite a following in the woods lately. Though it’s touted as being front specific, I’ve seen plenty of people running them both front and rear. I wanted to get a closer look to check out just what S&M’s trail tire was all about, so I hit them up and they were kind enough to send one over for us to inspect. S&M says that the 2.425″ size Mainline “is a nod to the old 2.125 Comp III we grew up riding in the front.” After mounting the tire up and taking a…
