Threads Vol. 6

IMGA0153Small_zpsfece243f

Man, I don’t know about you, but this week flew by! It’s Friday, so that seems to be the time we’ve been taking a look at Bikeguide to see what they have going on over on the board. We’ve picked up two interesting threads that will get you thinking or have you laughing your ass off to look at!

The first one we picked out is 3D Printing Titanium Parts! There’s been a lot of talk about 3D printing lately and it seems like there’s been more and more people looking into how to make it work for bikes. There’s been a few uses of titanium that are proving to be more affordable than CNC machining and it seems like the concept is getting even closer to actually being used. We even get a look at George French of G-Sport‘s personal 3D printing setup he has been using to prototype designs. Well worth looking into!

The second thread we’ve picked out is for anyone looking to laugh. The Post Internet Funnies (NSFW) thread has a ton of hilarious meme’s, Facebook screen shots, .GIFS and more. This one hits the Not Safe For Work Zone, so only check this out if your boss or mom isn’t around, haha.

Chris Silva and the Animal Axle Nuts

Coming up with this intro is a little tricky… Chris Silva is a Canandian BMX legend regardless if he wants to believe it or not. Over the years, Chris has destroyed A LOT of rails all over with and without the help of his pegs. Although grinding without pegs seems damn near impossible, he does it.
Some of you older riders out there will remember the classic Primo “Jewel” axle nuts that were essentially axle nuts that were rounded off to work more like pegs back in the day. Thanks to this little invention, it helped and inspired Chris to push the limits of his grinding abilities and helped make him into that legend we were talking about above that he is today.
A few months back when I was talking with Chris, he had mentioned that he was working on something with Animal Bikes that he was really psyched on. After bugging him a bit, he let the cat out of the bag that they were developing a newer, better, Chris Silva signature version of the Jewel axle nuts that would be coming out this summer.
There was no way we couldn’t find out more, so we got Chris to talk about these axle nuts (don’t call them a peg!) and the history of what lead to today. Let’s see what he had to say!

Insight: Fit Bike Co. – T/A Tire

Fit Bike Co. T/A BMX Tires

This past winter we got an email from Chris Moeller over at Fit Bike Co. wondering if we would be interested in checking out something they were cooking on that would be out this spring. As always, we were more than interested to take a peek into just what they were working on. Shortly after, he hit us back with some photos of their new T/A tire and asked if we would be interested in giving a sample they had in their possession a go. There was no way we could pass up the offer, so we had them on the next shipment out their door to check out in person!
After giving these guys a go for a while and the tires finally being released worldwide here in the next few days, we figured it would be good time to give you guys a look just incase you’re looking to get some fresh rubber on your bike for the warmer weather hitting the northern hemisphere. Let’s take a look!
