The other day we were watching the video reminding us why we’ll always run bar ends and it got us thinking about the different options out there. The Lightest Bar Ends from Kink are a perfect example for the people who don’t like the plastic plugs, but they also don’t want some big bulky and heavy metal bar ends. The Lightest Bar Ends are simple and made from CNC machined from 7075-T6 aluminum with internal grub screws to keep them in place. Simply slide them in, tighten the screw with an allen key and you’re good to go. These should also last you a lifetime unless you’re doing some weird bar end grinds or dropping your bike on its side a lot a lot.
Thinking about mixing things up with some new colors? Kink BMX have released their new Matte Pale Mint Colorway on a select batch of their parts! The color is featured on their Hemlock Pedals, Eastman Guard Sprocket, Lightest Bar Ends, Highrise Stem, Stealth and Pivotal Seat Posts and Integrated II headset!
All of these items are available through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Kink worldwide now, or direct from the Kink Webstore now.

Is it time for some new Bar Ends? We all know the importance on bar ends from how they can protect your bars to preventing you from cutting somebody wide open when you collide. The crew over at Volume Bikes have re-released a limited edition run of their aluminum bar ends with the CNC machined Volume logo and two small grub screws to keep them locked in place. They are available in White only with a price tag of $10.99 through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Volume or on the Volume website. We would imagine these will go quick, so get on ’em while they’re hot.
You can find a Volume logo wrapped around with the grub screw hole as the “o” in Volume. Clean and simple. Can’t go wrong with that combo!
Want to learn a little about using CAD? How about 3D printing? Jonny Lee is back with a video to show you how it’s done.
It has been a little while since Jonny Lee put out a video showing you his 3D printed BMX parts, but he’s back with a real rad one for you today. This time around he has decided to 3D Print some bar ends, but instead of just printing it and showing you the end result, he decided to also teach you how to use Free CAD software to design the bar ends, then take that to the 3D printer and then get a look at the end product. This might be a little over some of your heads, but if you just watch it, you will pick up a few things along the way. Real cool.
“In today’s video I walk you through how to design a pair of BMX bar ends using the free 3D modeling software, FreeCAD.

Looking to freshen your bike up with some new parts? BSD have just released their new gum and white colored parts to help you out.
There’s something about getting a fresh pair of BMX grips or BMX pedals on your bike. It always seems to make the bike feel better. Now if you’re a fan of the gum or white colors, you have a few new options courtesy of BSD. Here’s a look at the new Passenger and Slim grips in both colors, the matching M-Cap barends and the Forever barends without the metal, and the Reed Stark signature Safari plastic pedals.
Can’t go wrong with the look gum has on a bike. Matching the grips and pedals is never a bad idea, either.
Although white does get a little dirty, it looks awesome when it’s clean. You can even pair these white parts with the new BSD White Donnasqueak and Donnastreet tires!
