Snafu’s U.S. distributor, Sidewall, sent us some early pics of these a while back along with some preliminary specs, and now we’ve got these “official” photos with the production-ready graphics of their forthcoming Crenshaw and Hawthorne urban/dirt jump mountain bikes.Â From Snafu:
At some point everyone has to grow up, and after 11 years in the BMX and freestyle trenches, that time is now for SNAFU BMX. SNAFU Product/Brand Manager Harold “McGoo” McGruther, with help from SNAFU MTB Pro Mike Montgomery and Bulletproof Concept’s Erik Westergaard, is on the home stretch of a pet project he started last summer. A McGoo sees it, there’s an army of aging BMXers out there who still have the chops to shred like they did in their 20-inch days; they just don’t have the spine for it.
“I created SNAFU’s Crenshaw and Hawthorne with yesterday’s aging BMXers and tomorrow open-minded and progressive street and trail riders in mind. As BMX grows increasingly more style-conscious and the bikes the best BMXers ride look more and more like Razor scooters, I wanted to develop some complete bikes around SNAFU’s already proven line of MTB-friendly parts and accessories. These bikes are built for guys who know how to ride, and for guys who appreciate performance and technology; not just style Nazi BS.”
BMX wholesaler Sidewall Distro in Oklahoma City, OK, is SNAFU’s authorized stockist in the USA, and they will be the first company to stock SNAFU UDJ MTB’s when they arrive this July. Leading SNAFU distributors in other global markets like Australia, UK, South Africa and the Netherlands will quickly follow suit.
