Well, the long awaited Fiend premiere is finally here. All I can say is that this whole promo video is filled with what the hells, holy shits and oh my gods. So why don’t you stop reading and start watching, because this will melt your brain.
The Fiend crew got together for a team trip to Boston. While they were there, they tossed around a disposable camera for a new Disposed that’s up on Defgrip. It sounds like their website and first promo video will be dropping Friday so expect good things.
This photo of JJ Palmere’s new Fiend build has been floating around. There’s no specs or anything, but it looks dialed. I’d imagine we’ll be seeing more from Fiend sooner than later.
Well, as expected, Garrett Reynolds’ brand, Fiend, is getting closer to having their first run of products available. Blackout Distribution dropped a few sneak peek photos and specs of the frame.
The Fiend frame will be made right here in the U.S of A (but it didn’t specify by who…) with a 75 degree head tube angle, 71 degree seat tube angle, 11.625″ bottom bracket height, 8.5″ (20.5″ / 20.75″) or 9″ (21″ / 21.25″) stand over height and a chainstay length of 13.5″ (20.5″ / 20.75″) or 13.75″ (21″ / 21.25″). If you didn’t catch it, the frame will be available in top tube lengths of 20.5″, 20.75″, 21″ and 21.25″. The Fiend frame features a mid bottom bracket, custom integrated head tube with drilled holes for gyro tabs, removable mounts, low profile 5mm thick dropouts, integrated seat post clamp and a gusset at the down and head tube junction. The first run will be available in satin black with a weight of 4.9 lbs. on the 20.5″.

Premium dropped this edit as somewhat of a good bye to JJ Palmere, who is now riding for Garrett Reynolds’ brand Fiend. Here’s what TM Allan Cooke had to say…
“JJ has decided to part ways with Premium, all the luck to him in the future. I wonder who he’s going to ride for next, any guesses? Here is a little farewell edit he put together while recently spending time out in Philly, its short and sweet but there is some pretty dialed stuff in here for sure.“
Ty Morrow has parted way with Federal to ride for Fiend, which I’m assuming is Garrett Reynolds’ new brand he is starting.
“So the time has come to announce that Ty is moving on from Federal to new things. Obviously we’re pretty bummed but can understand Ty’s desire to go and be part of something his best friend is starting, as a result we only wish him the best in his future endeavors. We’d like to take the opportunity to publicly say thanks to Ty for all he’s done for Federal over the last 2 years and good luck with the next chapter.” – Federal
