Now and Then: BMX Frames

Macneil Ruben BMX frame

The other day while I was moving some things around in the garage, I got caught up looking at the first aftermarket frame I ever owned. I’m sure a lot of you saw the photo above and knew instantly that the frame is Ruben Alcantara’s signature Macneil Ruben. Looking at it, I really started to focus in on the different features of the frame and just how much has changed over the years to improve frames making them lighter, stronger, simplified and easier to ride. Although this frame is from the early 2000’s and there is A LOT of history that came before it, this was one of the more progressive frames at the time. I thought it would be cool to compare the Ruben frame to some of the frames that are available today and talk about some of the changes and innovations that have come since… Let’s take a closer look!

Review: Above / Below

above-below-bmx-monster-dig

After a long wait that felt like an eternity thanks to the anticipation, the “Above Below” video was finally released on iTunes today! This video, produced by Monster and DIG is a different approach to the traditional BMX full-length video featuring the likes of Dakota Roche, Dan Lacey, Nathan Williams, Ben Lewis, Ed Zunda and Fernando Laczko. With so much hype leading up to this one, it was hard not to hit that download video and see just what these guys have been working on with film maker, Rich Forne! After checking out the video, we decided to do a quick review for those of you still on the fence about checking this one out!
