Reed Stark Bike Check


Reed Stark is just back from a trip to the wilds of South Africa where he’s been tracking down elusive spots for an upcoming Safari frame promo. Kevin Schnider was on hand to catch a few photos of Reed and his new frame setup while out there. The Reed Stark signature Safari frame is available from all BSD retailers now…

A FEW WORDS FROM REED ABOUT HIS SETUP:
“Stoked as fuck on this one. Feels so nice to be on a frame with a long front end and short back end, more room for these long giraffe legs but still responsive and has control for spins and that. 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. Look out for the Donnastreet tire available in shops from mid April onwards…

Alex Donnachie’s BSD ALVX frame setup:

– FRAME: Tangfastic orange BSD ALVX 20.6″ frame
– BARS: Black BSD Zingbars
– GRIPS: Black BSD Paley Slims
– STEM: Black BSD Stacked stem
– HEADSET: BSD integrated headset
– FORKS: Black BSD Acid Fxxk v2
– SPROCKET: Black BSD Guard Sprocket 25t
– CRANKS: Black BSD Substance XL cranks 165mm
– PEDALS: Black BSD Safari pedals
– CHAIN: BSD 1991 halflink chain
– REAR HUB: Black BSD Westcoaster Hub with Jersey Barrier hub guards
– REAR TIRE: Black BSD Donnastreet tire 2.4″
– REAR RIM: Black BSD NASA rim
– FRONT HUB: Black BSD Front Street PRO hub with Jersey Barrier hub guards
– FRONT TIRE: Black BSD Donnastreet tire 2.4″
– FRONT RIM: Black BSD NASA rim
– PEGS: BSD Rude Tubes
– SEAT: Black BSD mid Acid seat
– SEAT POST: Black BSD Blitzed post


A FEW WORDS FROM ALEX ABOUT HIS SETUP:
“For this year I went with a brighter colour for the ALVX frame for something a bit different, I am pleased with how it came out. 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…”

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”.
