We’ve been working on a new rim for a minute and these week it felt like Christmas with the samples coming in. These are 40mm wide which is 4mm wider then a regular rim to combat wider tyres and make them even more durable for everything you throw at them. Chris Whyte is lacing a set up as you read this so once we’ve put them through the ringer we will get them in motion for real.
Tiny flew down to Melbourne for a few days for a little getaway from the daily grind. We headed out on a couple missions and came out at the end with some great footage and Tiny was able to see quite a bit of this great city. Here are a few shots from whilst he was in town…
So back in 2010 when we Started DVSN we actually made a prototype frame which although held up with no problems never came out. I think we made 4 of them and I know a couple of them are still in use today. So a year or so ago when we decided it was time to step into making frames we already had the frame design basically done, we just updated a few things and then we had a bunch of the crew thrash the samples and we had no issues with them.
So today I am stoked to be typing the news that the frames are now available here in Australia with the rest of the world in the next couple of weeks.
You can get the entire run down on the frames here but a few standout features for me would be…
The built in chain tensioners which have been working great and the bolt isn’t super long so it doesn’t stand out like a sore thumb.
The hour glass head tube is something I am a massive fan of and with the engraving it really pops and defines the frame.
9″ stand over is so damn good!
Super short back end at 13.1″ has been feeling great for me especially for the ledge combo’s being able to whip it around comfortably.
And of course the no brake mounts really gives it a super clean look.
When DJ blew his knee out 18 months ago we had a bunch of clips stacked which were used for The Division Project but we also had more kept aside for another project that never came about so DJ hit me up about doing a split part with him. I’m not like DJ where I can bang out hammers on the daily and I spend most my time behind a camera (I can also be a pussy sometimes) so yes DJ has his clips long before I did and he had to wait until I finally got enough clips that I was stoked on for the part. Anyway I hope you guys enjoy this and the good news is DJ will be back riding in 2 months so you will get to see more of him very soon.
Thanks to everyone that helped film this.
Since we gave 3 of the sample complete bikes a going over whilst filming for the promo video we figured instead of them sitting around the warehouse we should give them away to 3 lucky people. LUX BMX, Strictly BMX and Backbone BMX all have a bike each to give away and it’s super easy to go into the draw. Basically jump onto our Instagram or the shops Instagrams, re-post the flyer of the bike you would like to win with the corresponding hashtags and follow both the shop and us and that’s it! We will pick a winner on October 6th. You can enter as many times as you like for any of the bikes.
