Moeller posted up another tantalizing look at the prototype of Matty Aquizap’s upcoming signature Credence Black Magic Frame. It’s come back white from powder coat and apparently Matty will be adding his own special touch to the finish when he gets his hands on it. He also dropped another little piece of info about the build/geometry. The Black Magic will use a 5″ head tube as opposed to the standard 4.5″ to help eliminate the need to use headset spacers. Smart and clean!
S&M’s Australian squad consisting of Will Gunn, Tom Boorman, Bevan Cowan, Xave Koen and Jonny Mackellar hit the road for a trip around New South Wales and the A.C.T. There’s a bit of everything in here but it’s definitely pretty heavy on the trails roastage, and worth watching even the non-trails parts. You can also check out some words and photos from the trip over on DIG!
I can think of very few people more deserving of a signature frame than Matty Aquizap. The Credence M.O.D. frame is what he’s been blasting on ever since the whole S&M/Credence deal came to be a few years ago, but it looks like they’re giving him his very own signature model! The Black Magic is what it’s being called and he posted this picture of one of the final prototypes on Instagram earlier today. No details on the release date or specs just yet, but it seems to follow in the footsteps of the M.O.D. frame in that it looks…
Well new for the Hucker frames at least! Those of you who have been around for a while may recognize those colors and style of graphics from the early Holmes frames. It’s cool when brands pay homage to their history by doing stuff like this. Better start hitting up your favorite S&M Dealer now if you want to get your hands on one!
This timeline that Terrible One put together of Garrett Byrnes’ signature frames starts off with the legendary Garrettcode and then shows the struggle of getting his second signature frame, the Sweet Fuck All produced in America. If you ever wondered why why there was such a gap between the first Maas made batch of SFAs and the ones when S&M took the reigns in 2010, here is your explanation!
Relic is expanding their product line with a new set of handlebars dubbed the “Void Bars.” These S&M made bars feature an 8.8″ rise, 29″ width, 12 degrees of backsweep and 2 degrees of upsweep. Ashley Charles is running the samples in the picture above, and you can expect production versions to be available in about a month!
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…
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!
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…
S&M just updated their site with pictures of all the new Credence stuff in that tasty new “dark roast” color. Mark my words, you’ll be seeing it A LOT in the woods this year! You can check it out up close after the jump!
