Do you know what all the un-coordinated kids have been dreaming about as they longingly gaze at their friends hooning their clapped out department store bikes? A four wheeled, American made, 40 lb monster, with 8″ of travel!

The video says it almost all. Fast forward a minute to watch the beast in action. By beast, I mean the rider, he throws a little bar tweak and triples that first set of rollers like he could do it all day on a 20″ rigid two wheeled contraption.

Sure, haters will poke fun at the concept (myself included), but it may find a niche for those interested in taking their bungling buddies off the beaten track.

No word on whether they’re considering 650B wheels as a standard option, but you can order one configured for a gamut of disciplines including BMX, Downhill, or XC. Check past the break for the geometry, weight, and options.

Contes Engineering also makes frames for those who want to adventure  in a more nondescript fashion. They have a full range of fancy disc rotors in the works and have a production run of their Theophany BMX Frames  will soon be available.

OMG I want this so bad! I swear last ‘cross season I saw this floating around at the Alpenrose Cross Crusades race and couldn’t find out anymore about it. Not sure if it was the same one or not, but either way I want it!!!

This is not a ridiculous as it seems…I met Blair Jones who uses something very similar to shred at whistler because he is bound to a wheel chair on other days….heres the link to his youtube video on his contraption.

Im not asking much, but can some make a good fork for BMX bikes that you can mount a brake on?
i dont care if its disk, rim, or through axle, just at least one good fork that works with brakes.
