PegLeg have a sale on some of their shirts for those of you ordering from the U.S. Hit that link and take a look at what they have for you.
It’s not that S&M is inventing the “custom bars” thing, Solid has been doing it for years. However, now S&M gives you the option to take any of their bars like the classic Slam Bars, Hoders, Perfect 10’s, Beringer’s, etc. and customize the backsweep, up sweep, cross bar size and color to your preference. This is nice since a lot of bars are very similar since that’s what a good number of people ride (supply and demand), but not always what you are looking for. Head over to the new Custom Bar section of the S&M site and figure out what works for you. I’m curious to see if FBM starts doing something like this, as well.
If I remember right, Primo had these on display at Interbike this past year. All the specs are in the photo, but I’d like to mention how the drop outs are designed to have a clean fit with pegs, and the cut out where the steerer meets the legs are all nice touches. You can’t really tell by the photo, but the legs “flatten” out from the top of the stickers as they go down to the drop out. Also, the 13mm offset is pretty crazy to think about considering the Odyssey Race Forks have 32mm offset. You will be able to nose manual like a champ with these. Lifetime warranties are good too.

A few months back it was announced that Colony would be doing a limited edition run of frames through FBM. 50 frames to be exact. Well, a few months went by and there wasn’t any word on if they came out until today. Here’s the word on the frames from Clint.
“A while ago we released the news that we were doing some very limited edition frames made by FBM in the USA. Well, all good things come to those who wait & finally after many delays, the frames are getting close. Below is a photo of them tacked up & ready for welding. They should be available in about another 2-3 months tops but better late than never I say.
There will only be 50 frames produced & only available in Australia with some possibly available in France through Unleaded in very small numbers. Get in quick with your local dealer if you want to secure yourself one.“
