Alex D Bike Check & the New Dark Red Parts


Alex Donnachie just freshened up his ride with the new dark red colourway parts so we took the chance to shoot a bike check with him. As well as the new dark red Forever Lo grips, Passenger Seat and Safari pedals which are all available now; Alex is also running a sample dark red set of his signature Donnasqueak tires. The dark red tires set the bike off nicely and you will be able to get your hands on a pair of these in either 2.25″ or 2.4″ in late November. Squeak squeak!…

Reed Stark signature ‘Safari Pedals’…

Introducing the Reed Stark signature Safari Pedal. Reed has been talking about this pedal idea for as long as he’s been on BSD. He noticed that when a bike falls to the ground, the corner pins on plastic pedals grind and break off. The Safari pedal is designed with extra pins in these high impact areas to ensure the pedal stays grippy after withstanding severe abuse. The optimal pin placement, hexagonal pin shape, and knurling all combine to make this one of the most durable, effective plastic pedals on the market.

Also check out this interview with Reed where he talks about the pedals on The Merged…


BSD Safari Pedals Features:

- Tough Nylon Fibreglass construction
- True dual concave design
- Knurled surface for extra grip
- 20 optimally placed hexagonal pins per side
- 9/16” Heat treated chromoly spindle
- Available in black, grey or dark red to match the full range of BSD parts.
