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:

Big Boyz for the Hod

When you’re 6’5″, like S&M’s Mike Hoder, big bars are a necessity…

…especially when you’re rolling on a 20″.

So even though Hoder already has signature bars in 8.6 and 9″ rises…he’s bumped things up on the latest iteration of his bars to a height more fitting of his stature: 9.5″.

Seems like the right move.

Speaking of right move…

Don’tcha think Hoder might be next in line for a signature 22″?

Heck, BF clocks in at 6’1″…it makes sense that Hoder’s BTM frame should come in a 22″ version.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
