Welp, it turns out that the rumor that S&M Bikes is doing an 11 inch rise bar is true! The Elevenz bar is made from 4130 chromoly right here in the U.S with a rise of 11″, width of 30″, 3-degrees of upsweep and 11-degrees of backsweep. They’re weighing in at 2.73 lbs. with color options of black and I’m willing to bet chrome as well. These will be selling for $59.99 and can be picked up by having your local shop getting ahold of The Building… My 8.5″ bars are starting to look like Haro Slim bars…
The Rasta colorway strikes again! I spotted this beautiful thing over on The Merged. S&M Bikes have stepped their Rasta game up and produced a few ATF frames in this limited colorway. If you’re looking to get your hands on one these, I’d advise you hit up The Building and get one ordered up as soon as possible! BMX is going to lose it over this.
You know when you wake up to a message and all you think is “it’s too damn early for this…”… That’s the response I had when I woke up this morning to a link Dave at The Merged sent me to check out. It looks like S&M Bikes may be expanding their space program and getting one inch closer to the moon with some 11 inch rise bars. All we have right now is this photo, so it might just be a joke, but according to Dave, they will be available next week through The Building for $59.99. Expect more info if and when these beasts drop so you can slap them on that BMX bike of yours.
I think I just found some ape hangers for my motorcycle…

Based on this post on the S&M Bikes website, Kareem Williams is now getting the hook up from them! Hopefully this means he’ll start producing footage as much as he tweets, haha! Good things coming I’m sure.
S&M Bikes dropped this new video featuring the one and only Fathead giving you a behind the scenes look into what it took to get his interview in The Albion sorted. This video has a ton of real good riding along with some hilarious moments and ass kickings he took. This is a MUST SE for sure.

Looks like S&M Bikes have a new minimal offset fork for you Flatland guys out there. Take a look at this promo video giving you all the info on the fork, along with a closer look and some real good riding clips. This doesn’t look like it’ll have any problems holding up to street and park riding either… Just sayin’!
