There’s no denying that the freecoaster revolution has taken place and that it has become a focus product for many brands throughout the BMX industry. In the past two years we have seen a huge influx in the number of freecoaster hubs available and because of that we have seen improvements in the overall quality of the hubs.
Personally, I’ve never ran a freecoaster in my 15 years of riding and I guess up until fairly recently I shyed away from the idea because of the horror stories I’ve heard over the years from maintenance and the expense of replacing things like bearings. Once more brands started releasing their own take on the freecoaster hub and a huge flood of videos from pretty much all of the top street riders making riding with a freecoaster look pretty amazing, my interest was peaked and I finally caved and decided to see what all of the hype was about. About two months ago, I got my hands on one of The Shadow Conspiracy‘s Raptor freecoaster wheel and started seeing how things worked going backwards. After countless sessions, a lot of frustration and excitement, I decided it was time to do a little review. Let’s do this…

Lahsaan Kobza and Tammy McCarley have been spending quite a bit of time at their friend JR’s backyard ramp setup lately. It’s pretty obvious as to why, because, let’s be real I think we all want that backyard. The two have been busy stacking clips for a while and we’re stoked to premiere this new edit filled with some amazing riding along with a brand new song from Mouse Powell for you to hear! Check it!

Jeff K. has had his string of bad luck with injuries over the last year or so, so it’s awesome to finally see some fresh footage of him! Profile Racing dropped this new one featuring him, along with Madera‘s Mike Hinkens and Dan Kruk getting some time in on street spots around Milwaukee!
“Jeff Klugiewicz filmed and edited this right when he got back on his bike after a few months off after wrist surgery. Just a normal session jibbin around in Milwaukee with Mike Hinkens and Dan Kruk!”
Although it’s been tough to really sell DVD’s these days with the internet becoming the go-to outlet to reach the most people versus really appreciating the quality and hard work that goes into a video, there are still brands and riders out there that are putting in the hard work to make a DVD happen. The crew over at The Daily Grind are pretty known for their quality over quantity ideals and because of that we always know we can trust that what they’re producing is going to be proper.
We caught wind that the crew have been busy stacking clips for the brands 2nd full-length DVD and after seeing some “scraps” from a few edits that popped up, we were really curious what the story was behind it. We decided to get ahold of Jon “Gremlin” Bechtold and Ryan Howard to talk about what the story is with the new DVD and what we can expect from it! Let’s check out what they had to say along with a bunch of rad behind the scenes photos!
If you caught the “Hard Times” with The Daily Grind interview we dropped yesterday about The Daily Grind‘s new DVD project, you might have caught wind that they’re cooking up some new products! The guys are potentially going to be offering some Tripod seats here in the near future and just got in some samples. We convinced Jon to send through a few photos to give us a look at just what they were thinking of doing! It looks like they will have a black with red stitching and a brown version that you can get a better look at after the jump! What do you guys think?
Head over to the Fly Bikes website to check out a brand new bike check with Shane Weston and his fresh setup with his new signature 2015 Mustard Yellow Isla frame and a bunch of other new parts we should be seeing surfacing here soon! Talk about a dialed freecoasting machine!
