Answer BMX dropped the news recently on social media that they have a OS20 tire in the works.
A welcome development as the only tire game in town these days, OS20-wise, is Tioga. OS20 tires have been notoriously hard to find in the past little while so another brand option will definitely help a lot of people out.
However, those OS20 outages might be shortlived as Tioga also recently announced that they were ramping up production of the OS20 tires to meet the “huge demand in the past few months.”
It’s interesting to see how, when a new competitor appears, Tioga starts to suddenly address the building demand for OS20 tires.
Maybe now, Tioga will keep the OS20 at reasonable stock levels –and we don’t have to go through droughts of availability — if only because they want to maintain their market share.
Tired of the limited color choices in OS20 wheels?
TNT Bicycles may just have the solution to what ails you.
TNT has done a small run of OS20* rims in multiple colors (see below) to add a little flair to your OS20 ride.
They clock in at 435 grams (per rim) and retail for $49.95 (US) per rim.
I’m kinda partial to that gold anno myself.
Hit up TNT Bicycles for all the particulars…and maybe do it soon?
Remember the “small run” part above…
*Or 451mm for you metric types.
Spotted this one in the Jan/Feb. issue of Pull Magazine: Michael Von Sothen’s custom OS20 Alpha prototype.
This rig is tricked out.
Check out this spec list (in addition to the OS20 wheels), it features:
- Hydraulic disc brakes
- Gates belt drive (with a custom split dropout)
- 20 mm axles
- One-piece CNC’ed BB junction
- 3-D headtube.
That’s a lot of stuff going on here.
Just caught this on the socials today…Standard is busting out a rainbow of purty trans colored OS20 frames!
Trans gold, blue, red and green…Wow!
Here’s a better shot of the frames:
I would have a seriously hard time choosing a color from this lineup…they all look that good!
And if color ain’t your thing….clear over raw is pretty dialed too!
Hot damn, Standard’s OS20 game is tight!
