While all of the top pros were at Woodward West for Vital’s Game of BIKE, Steve Croteau shot some non-contest footage from the likes of Sean Morr, Devon Smillie, JJ Palmere, Morgan Long, Caleb Quanbeck, and more for TCU.
Still haven’t seen the Deadline video? Losing your mind anticipating getting a copy? Watch this teaser for what JJ Palmere brings to the table for his section. I’d highly, highly advise you pick this one up!
Here’s a couple clips from the session that went down at 5050 skatepark last weekend during the Deadline video premiere. Looks like everyone was psyched because plenty of awesome riding went down between JJ Palmere, Stephon Fung, Anthony Panza, Tyler Huel, Freddy and more. Take a peek.
JJ Palmere’s signature frame from Fiend is due out just in time for Christmas this year. Although that’s still 6 months away, they figured they would give you the heads up that it’s coming and release a few of the specs. The frame will come with a 75-degree head tube angle, 71-degree seat tube angle, 11.625″ bottom bracket height and a 13.25″ chainstay length (slammed). It will be available in top tube sizes of 20.5″, 20.75″, 21″ and 21.25″. That’s all the released on their website, but based on this photo it looks like they’ve got gussets on the top and down tubes, a tapered seat tube, rounded bridges on the stays for added tire clearance, an integrated seat post clamp and removable seat stay mounts.
Expect full details on color options, weight and more features of the frame closer to its release in December 2013.
Steve Croteau had a ton of clips piling up on his computer, so he decided to drop them all in the 3rd volume of GoldPro. The scuffed lens on the GoPro is still killing me, but the riding footage from Ty Morrow, JJ Palmere, Garrett Reynolds, Kevin Kiraly, Dan Lacey, Bruno Hoffmann and more is worth a watch! Somebody needs to hook these guys up with a fresh camera… Just saying…
Spotted this on The Merged. JJ Palmere dropped a few photos of his prototype signature frame that he’s working on with Fiend. No info on specs or release dates, but based on these photos, I’d be willing to guess there’s a 75-degree head tube angle, 9″ standover and probably a 13.5″ or so chain stay length. There also appears to be top and down tube gussets and removable seat stay brake mounts. Don’t quote me on that since I’m just guessing measurements based on this picture, haha. Expect more info soon.
