Chaz Mailey Bike Check


Here’s a fresh bikecheck shot down in Hastings with Chaz Mailey and what he’s running on his stainless Passenger setup…

A FEW WORDS FROM CHAZ ABOUT HIS SETUP:

” If my bike doesn’t feel solid then neither do I, all the parts on this thing work so harmoniously that it bounces like a basketball. I need my bike to look good or I’m not going to want to ride it. For me it doesn’t get much better than the stainless Passenger V3 with all black parts. Every time I see it makes me want to pick it up and go ride. I go for less is more with my setup, no pegs and no brakes makes you look at spots and set ups differently and I like that. Some big bars and a few inches of seat post showing and we are good to go!”

While down there Kriss headed out onto the pier to shoot this new bike check with his freshly built up flat gold Passenger. Kriss is running the new Donnastreet tires in 2.4″ as well as our OS Gorilla grip system with his signature Passenger bars and the Stacked stem. Read on for what Kriss has to say about his setup and more details on the parts he’s running…

“I decided to set up my new flat gold colourway and couldn’t be happier with how it looks! With a mixture of black and brown in there I think it might be the best looking bike I have ever had! I’m always saying that but it’s always true. Haha! As usual it rides like an absolute dream! I’ve been riding the Source Park and the new Donnastreet tire is working out great for carving the bowls. This one also has the new OS bars and stem with 1” clamp which haven’t slipped once and I feel they look great on the bike being a little beefier when looking down. All in all I’m gonna say this is the best looking/feeling bike I have had! “

Shot a photo of the Sahara desert when I was on a camel safari last year in Africa and now that sand is one of my frame colors. Can’t ask for much more than that…”

Look out for a Safari frame promo video dropping later in the spring and in the meantime have a look back at Reed’s ridiculous section from our recent Transmission DVD…

Alex D Bike Check


Alex Donnachie headed out to Malaga a few weeks back to catch some sun and start filming for an X Games RealBMX video part that will be out this summer. We grabbed a bike check while there and this is the first look at Alex’s new signature tire, the Donnastreet. We’ve designed this tyre with street riding in mind with a smooth sidewall to help when grinding and a simple stylish tread pattern for fast rolling and lots of grip.

Also on this bike I am running the new Donnastreet tyres with a tread that is smoother for more grip while riding and also slides better on the sidewall while grinding to make those slow grinds faster…”

“Absolutely loving the new beast. Back on the Soulja frame again, never rode chain tensioners before but the ones on the new Soulja frame work so well. I’m not really into chrome parts, but the stainless look all BSD bars come in is way too sick! Went for the choice of a few of the new green parts including the tyres because of being new and fancied a bit of colour having chosen a black frame, well into it! BSDFOREVER!”

Dan Paley Bike Check

bsd-bikecheck-danpaley006dec2016-001t


Paley was up in Glasgow a few weeks ago and set up this fresh new Soulja v2 in matt burgundy with the new Substance XL cranks and some prototype lightweight Rude Tube pegs that he’s been testing, check it all below…

bsd-bikecheck-danpaley006dec2016-002t


DAN PALEY’S SOULJA FRAME SETUP:

– FRAME: Matt burgundy 20.9″ BSD Soulja frame

– FRONT RIM: Black BSD NASA rim
– PEGS: Prototype BSD RudeTube LT pegs
– SEAT: Black/dark red BSD Acid seat
– SEAT POST: Black BSD Blitzed post


A FEW WORDS FROM DAN ABOUT HIS SETUP:

“As always it’s a pleasure to build a new bike and this one is no exception! I’m buzzin’ on the new colours for 2017 and I’ve gone for the matt burgundy version this time. Stoked that the 2017 BSD frames come with integrated chain tensioners so there’s no need to worry about your wheel moving. Another new product I’m stoked on are the Substance XL cranks, they’ve been designed with less material around the axle bosses making them more ankle friendly and boast a hefty 24mm axle that actually works out lighter with the BB than 22mm! I’m also running some prototype Rude Tube LT pegs that have an aluminium core for lightness with a steel insert where the drop out touches the peg so the softer aluminium doesn’t deform and adhere to your axle. As for everything else I’ve stuck to what I know like the 2.25″ Donnasqueak tires, Stacked stem and straight link Forever chain”.

In the end I went with the stainless with dust blue parts for now. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out, it’s one of the nicest bikes I have built up. I’m also trying out the new XL Substance cranks which feel solid and nice and light too which is never a bad thing. All in all the bikes feels unbelievable and I’m looking forward to riding it all over the word with the BSD bros!…”

Dan Paley Bike Check

bsd-bikecheck-danpaley005jun2016-001t


Dan Paley’s been off his bike recovering from an injury for a while now but last week up in Glasgow visiting BSD mission control he had his first couple of sessions back on the bike since getting hurt. As it was scorching outside we took the chance to shoot a bike check with Dan and his fresh surplus green signature Soulja frame setup he’s running…

bsd-bikecheck-danpaley005jun2016-002t


DAN PALEY’S SOULJA FRAME SETUP:

– FRAME: Surplus green 20.9″ BSD Soulja frame
– BARS: Black BSD Giraffic bars
– GRIPS: Choco brown BSD Dan Paley Slims
– Bar Ends: Choco brown BSD Dan Paley MCaps
– STEM: Black BSD Stacked stem
– HEADSET: BSD Integrated
– FORKS: Black BSD V2 Acid forks
– SPROCKET: Black BSD Superlite 25t
– CRANKS: Black BSD Substance cranks 165mm

– FRONT RIM: Black BSD NASA rim

– SEAT: Brown BSD Passenger seat
– SEAT POST: Black BSD Blitzed post


A FEW WORDS FROM DAN ABOUT HIS SETUP:

“It was literally like Christmas when BSD sent me a full new bike ready for when I’m able to ride again. I only got chance to ride my prototype frame for a month or so before I broke my knee (typical) so as you can imagine I’m pretty pumped to get rolling on this one! Really happy with running 2.25 tyres, it feels more responsive and grinds feel a treat! Especially crooked’s. Everything’s straight outta the box except I cut the bars to just under 29″ and I file my bottom bracket tube spacer down so my cranks don’t spin when I take my feet off, which in this day and age is pretty strange I guess considering every man and his dog do kickflips.. Unfortunately there is no emoji in existence to express my hatred for kickflips so I’ll leave it to the imagination…”.
