The other week Brian Kachinsky had a little bachelor party down in Puerto Rico with Dave Friemuth, Chad DeGroot, Brian Hunt, Mike Escamilla, Andrew Brady, Kevin Porter and Aaron Bostrom, where the crew spent a week riding spots and exploring the island. This video that Dave put together shows what these guys got into on and off their bikes. As you can imagine with a crew like this, there was plenty of dialed riding and good times to be had. We’re pretty sure there has to be plenty of footage that didn’t make it into the edit that was probably hilarious, but… yeah… It’s safe to say these guys had a super good time during their visit. Anyone else reaaaaaally want to go to Puerto Rico right about now?
Brian Kachinsky has been off his bike for a little while healing up from foot surgery, but he’s been finally able to get back into the swing of things now that he’s healed up. Here’s a fresh video from some time he spent at Woodward East where he put the different parks that the place has to offer to good use! Plenty of grinds to take in, in this one! Enjoy!

It has been rad seeing GT Bicycles back on its game! This past summer some of their team made a trip on over to Europe to bounce around to a handful of countries from France to Germany and back. Here’s the video giving you a look at what the crew got into during their trip while out cruising the street spots and skateparks they came across! Plenty of damn good riding to take in, in this!
“Select members of the GT BMX squad (Brian Kachinsky, Dan Conway, Jason Phelan, and the French brothers Max and Tim Bringer) take a 2-week trip through the European continent. From ledges and baguettes, to bowls, beers, shop stops and espresso…These dudes lived it up on a trip through Paris, Stuttgart, Zurich, & Lyon.” – Ride BMX

During the GT Bicycles 2017 Complete Bike Launch, Crazy Al Cayne was running around with his camera getting the whole scoop for SugarCayne.com. Here’s a video bike check he did with Brian Kachinsky and his signature BK Team Signature complete that looks pretty much identical other than frame color to his personal bike! Check out the video bike check we did with Brian and his personal bike below!
Last weekend, GT Bicycles invited us out to New York City for their 2017 BMX Product launch and jam at 5050 Skatepark in Staten Island. As you know, we’re big nerds when it comes to product and we’ve been real stoked on what GT has been doing since it brought Ben Ward on board to re-ignite their BMX program as a whole, so there was no way we could miss out on the trip out to see what they have been working on. GT brought Brian Kachinsky, Albert Mercado, Dan Conway, Jason Phelan and Jeff With Glasses on out for the session and to get their first look at all of the bikes as well. For 2017, GT have their Team Signature Series (Brian Kachinsky, Jason Phelan and Rob Wise), Team Comp series, Team Series, Performer Series and Slammer bikes that cover a lot of ground from entry level on up to higher end bikes.
The Brian Kachinsky Signature Bikes are available in 3 different styles.
BK Team Signature Series
– Transparent Yellow
– BK signature GT Elevated stem
– Sealed 9-tooth freecoaster (KHE Internals)
BK Team Comp
– Transparent Copper
– Chromoly Front Triangle and Seat Stays
– GT 4-Piece Bars
– Transparent Black
– Chromoly Front Triangle
– GT 4-Piece Bars
– GT Pool Tires
Brian Kachinsky Team Signature Series Complete
Each of the bikes feature this GT logo which is based off the sewer hole covers you can find all over the world from Brian’s hometown, Neenah, Wisconsin. You can find the sewer covers in Chicago where Brian calls home now, too.
Each of the bikes feature the GT 4-Piece bars.
Here’s a look at Brian’s signature Elevated topload stem that will be available aftermarket as well. CNC machined with beveled edges, smooth curves, a rounded back, additional machining for weight saving and engraved logos.
The new GT Team grips use the classic mushroom style with a soft rubber compound. You can find these on all the bikes in the range.
The graphics on the bike are based off the transit maps of Chicago. The seat tube features a crosswalk style design as well.
The seat also features the same style design which is a nice personal touch since Brian takes a lot of pride in Chicago where he calls home.
GT have some 2-piece cranks that can be found on the higher end bikes, which look real clean.
Brian’s Signature Series bike comes with a 9-tooth sealed freecoaster hub. The hub is based off the tried and true KHE system.
You can find GT’s classic, but modernized Pool tires on the bikes as well.
Brian’s bikes in order front to back, BK Team, BK Team Comp and BK Team Signature Series.
Believe it or not, but Brian didn’t see the final bikes in person until the event, so you could see how blown away he was when he saw months of bouncing ideas and concept designs back and forth with designer and team manager, Ben Ward, in person finally.
Overall, we were really impressed with the bikes for Brian’s line. There are a lot of details that definitely make it a signature complete beyond just a colorway or something simple we find on other signature bikes out there.
During a trip to New York City for the GT Bicycles 2017 BMX product launch, we caught up with GT Bicycle’s pro team rider Brian Kachinsky to take a closer look at his signature Globetrotter setup that he’s running loaded up with parts from Primo and Odyssey! This originally appeared as a Facebook Live video, so that’s why the quality is a little rough around the edges.
The GT Bicycles crew spent the other week bouncing around Europe. Here’s some highlights from a street jam they threw in Stuttgart, Germany with Kunstform. It looks like they had a great turn out, some rad spots and dialed riding that went down. Take a peek!
“On june 28th the GT Bikes BMX Freestyle Pro Team with Brian Kachinsky, Jason Phelan, Dan Conway, Max Bringer and Tim Bringer visited our BMX Shop in Stuttgart and we run with a lot of locals and the kunstform BMX Shop team a huge BMX Street tour through Stuttgart and stop an some very unusual spots. At was an awesome time! Thanks again to GT Bikes and Frenchys Distribution for that awesome possibility!
