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!

INSPECTED: 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…

INSPECTED: 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…

Limited Edition BBQ Black S&M C.C.R. Frames

Two things that are synonymous with summer, trails and BBQ. S&M took influence from both of those things and did a very small run of their VERY popular C.C.R. frame in a limited edition BBQ black finish. They only did five of each size (21, 21.25, and 21.5) in the finish, so you better get on it if you want to pick one up! Either hit up your favorite S&M dealer or get it direct from their webstore. Check out more pictures of this BBQ black beauty after the jump.
