If you followed the Vans BMX Pro Cup or watched the Battle of Hastings contest last year, there’s a good chance you probably saw Sem Kok‘s name pop up. Last year the guy was seriously popping up everywhere and he seemed to come out of nowhere. Either way, Sem goes fast and big with a ton of style! It looks like he dialed in a brand new Flybikes setup for 2019 and it’s looking damn good. You can check out a full bike check with a bunch of photos and a full parts list over on the Flybikes website now!
Here’s a little news that a few of you have been waiting on for… a decade. Flybikes have announced that their Magneto Cassette hub will be finally dropping this summer! Now, I know a bunch of you are going to say “I’ve heard all this before…” which is a pretty understandable response. It was set to release a few times and it hasn’t happened. This time around is a little different. I spoke with Flybikes owner David, and this time around it’s not a joke… Infact, it’s currently in production! There were a lot of setbacks from having to find the perfect manufacturer (this hub won’t be made in Taiwan) and they ended up changing manufacturers a handful of times in the process. Along with that, they’ve put a TON of time into testing to ensure there weren’t going to be flaws with the design.
No specifics of what’s going on internally yet, BUT full details will be coming very soon. We do know that it will be available in left and right hand drive with 9 and 10-tooth drivers, though! We will keep you posted as soon as we know more!
Hey, if the Cyclops stem can happen, there’s no reason to give up hope on this one!
Tere Fernandez Miranda is now doing it for Flybikes!

Flybikes have released their new Volcano TT stem…
Last year the crew at Flybikes introduced their new Volcano Front and Top Load Stems that utilized some clean machining for a great look and grooves where the bars sit to help resist slipping. For 2018, they’ve decided to release a 3rd option for the stem to combine their ever popular Roey and Alta stems. The Volcano TT stem is CNC machined from 6061-T6 aluminum with a 50mm reach, 25mm rise, a 29mm stack height and external and internal machining for extra weight savings. The stem is a slimmed down and lighter version of the regular Volcano stem, but still features a 47mm width and the anti-slip grooves to keep your bars in place. Add in some beveled edges, a recessed top and solid chromoly bolts and you have a strong and a really clean looking BMX stem!
The Volcano TT stem comes in Black, Space Grey and Dark Gold with a weight of 10 oz. (286 grams) and can be picked up for $65.00 through Flybikes dealers worldwide and online, or on the Flybikes website.
