Keeping things rolling, I made my way over to the Deluxe BMX and And Forks booth where U.S team rider, Jeremy Ball, was taking care of things. Deluxe have a few fresh items for 2013 and the And Forks range is finally available, so that was cool to finally get a look at those in person. Let’s take a closer look!
First off, they had a custom built bike based around Max Bimar’s signature “Sacre Bleu” frame that’s out now. They decked the bike out with all of the new Deluxe and And Forks parts with a few Odyssey and other bits and bobs… All in all, that is what I’d call one hell of a bike. It looked so clean and everything looked so right on that bike. Very nice.
The new F-Power stem. This topload stem is looking real clean. I’m a huge fan of that titanium grey color way.
The F-Lite pedals are based off the old Shimano DX pedals. Why screw with what already works? Simple, clean and grippy.
The Pom Pomp and F-Lite sprockets.
Over those plastic bar ends that break all the time or need a little extra length? Deluxe have two style of bar ends. The smaller is the regular bar end and the larger is the extender which add an additional 1/2″ per bar end.
The Superlight seat available in kevlar or leather.
Deluxe now offer complete front and rear wheels.
The 2nd version of the Deluxe Bars come in two sizes; XXL and XXXL.
The new And Forks forks are finally out!
The forks come in 4 different versions. 33mm offset and 23mm offset with both versions available with front brake mounts.
The 33mm version has traditional drop outs.
The 23mm version has tapered legs for extra peg clearance.
The key to front brake magic.
All of the forks come with a 20g CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum plug that’s hydraulically pressed into the steerer tube for additional strength to resist breaking.
So that wraps up the Deluxe and And Forks booth. You can find more out about both brands by visiting their websites — DeluxeBMX.com and AndForks.com. Both brands are exclusively distributed by QBP here in the U.S, so if you’re looking to get these products, have your local shop get ahold of QBP!
