Next up was a trip to our friends from Rochester, New York, Kink Bike Co. to get a look at their full range of BMX frames, bikes and parts. As always, the crew at Kink have a bunch of rad new products that you’ll definitely want to take a look at including a unique piece they’re developing for freecoasters…
One of the biggest problems with freecoasters are when riders go to work on them and put them back together wrong. One way to help alleviate that problem is this little concept they’re working on with the clutch. Essentially they’ve designed it so there are threads that go both ways for left and right side drive. So, to switch between right and left, you just need to replace the driver instead of take it all apart. It sounds like this should be available in the next year and they will most likely be applying it to their East Coaster freecoaster hub. They might even license it so other brands can utilize this as well. Great idea.
Kink have a bunch of seats with their Stealth seat system. Looking good! That last one looks wild.
