GT fires up 22″ Fueler promo

Mason Ritter and GT just dropped a promo vid for the 22″ GT Fueler and it’s a barn burner!

The accompanying writeup says,

“Whether you’re looking for a roomy bike to cruise or aiming to shred, you can stretch out the fun on a Fueler 22. Mason Ritter shows you how…”

Boy, does he ever! Mason proceeds to shred trails, street, an outdoor park and then an indoor park, The Wheel Mill.

The radness never seems to stop.

No matter what obstacle is in front of them, Mason and the 22″ GT Fueler take it in stride.

According to GT:

The Fueler 22 has the same full Cr-Mo frame, fork and handlebar build as our highest end BMX models. The 22-inch wheels allow a rider to roll faster with more stability than traditional 20-inch wheels while keeping the same playfulness you’ve come to expect from a modern BMX bike.

Fast and playful are definitely on display in this video.

We haven’t seen this level of promo vid for a 22 since the Kye Forte United or the Felix Prangenburg WTP promos. We definitely need more 22″ clips like this.

So hyped to ride after watching this.

BMX videos kicked ass this year

You can say a lot of things about the year 2020, many of them negative.

However, there’s one thing you can’t complain about and that is the state of video parts in BMX.

Just a week or two into when things started kicking off pandemic-wise in North America, S&M Bikes dropped S&M Wins.

The ultimate feel good BMX video with everything from Hoder’s car wash intro, Hucker’s insanity, Kareem’s ender and the whole team going off….there was something for everyone.

Perhaps one of the most emblematic images of the time was the sequence with a housebound resident giving new S&M rider Chris Childs the finger as he pedals bye. It sort of foretells how the balance how the rest of the year is going to go.

In September, things really went off.

That’s when Dennis Enarson & VANS dropped Right Here.

I don’t know what else to say that hasn’t been said already but I will repeat at least one thing: this video is going to be talked about for a long time. This is one for the ages.

This video sets a new bar for video parts and holds up (and probably surpasses) all the other iconic video parts you can compare it against.

Heck, go watch again. I’ll wait.

But BMX wasn’t yet done for the year when it came to adding jaw-dropping parts.

Coming in fast and loose to close out the year, Corey Walsh went full speed into his part End of the World.

If you want to get your adrenaline up and make yourself pedal as fast as humanly possible at a gap or obstacle this is the video for you.

What a way to cap of the year.

if you haven’t already, crack open a cold one and give these vids another watch.

It’s time to get psyched up for a new year.

Cheers!

New look for 22″ WTP Audio

We The People (WTP) just dropped the deets on the 2021 version of their high-end 22″ complete, the Audio.

It looks like geo and parts-wise they have stuck with what has made the Audio so popular over the last few years.

It comes standard with a 21.9″ top tube and a slightly more park and street-oriented geo vs. the more common “trails-y”-inspired geo of many 22s.  The frame is aftermarket quality (it’s also available separately as a frame and fork kit).

New for 2021, is a matte aqua red finish which is essentially a camo/tie-dye style colorway which was found on the WTP Revolver frame last year.

The  colorway is a bit of a departure from the 2020 Trans Blue (which I totally dug) but this is kinda growing on me.

For more breakdown of the new Audio, peep the walkthrough provided by WTP.

Glad to see this model still going strong in 2021. If you’re thinking about getting one these, probably a good idea to start hitting up your WTP dealer.

 

 

Hoder’s BTM gets upsized

The recent CABDA show coverage held some important news that didn’t seem to get the play it deserved in our opinion.

That news?

The S&M BTM frame is getting upgraded and upsized for the tallest member of the S&M team, Mike Hoder.

The new version of the BTM frame now has a 5″ headtube along with a 9.5″ standover (from the previous 8.75“). All the other specs remain the same.

This gives the bike a taller profile overall and also let’s Hoder (and any other tall rider buying one) to run less headset spacers, and less seat post while still maintaining a tall, comfy profile.

Two colorways are available: OG S&M Yellow and Gloss Clear.

Also new: hand drawn graffiti-style graphics from Hoder himself.

Pretty sweet.

Looking forward to checking one of these out when they come available in a month or so.

For now though, let’s take a moment and bask in all things Hoder with his section from Hot Dogs:
