I mean it's obviously a lifestyle product. I don't see much difference between this and a lot of what SE puts out.


I might not deliver when I say I will, but when I do it's always right on time.

Anyone think a threesome will ensue?

Yup definitely a "Lifestyle" product. While I agree SE certainly has its lifestyle bikes, they have also helped cultivate a whole new bike subculture with all the trick wheelie riders etc. which has in turn led to them creating more bike models tailored to that culture. They've created a great feedback loop where the customers are helping shape their styles and design etc. These guys on the other hand are trying to push some kind of manufactured "Aesthetic". Check out some pics from their Facebook. Weird/creepy geometric masks, Check, hypebeast uniforms, Check, grainy faded photo filter, Check...soooo  artsy soooo edgy lol lol

Funny, it's like a mashup of fixie hype and wheelie hype. I bet they sell some bikes.

I live for SE, Race Inc, Nomura, and Navajo!!

Hey guys, go ahead and keep selling everything SE, GJS, and Nomura to Thailand. Once it's gone it's NEVER coming back to the US. There really IS more to BMX collecting than money!!

If I hear the words "RARE", "GRAIL", or "SCORE" one more time, I'm gonna f'n puke. ALSO, NOS is NOT a condition description. Being NOS has NOTHING to do with the actual condition of the part.

BMX Museum, where every single "score" thread is followed by a FOR SALE thread 15 minutes later.

What a pos. Typical 'designers' thinking they know shit about shit. Throwing money at a Brooks knock-off because it will attract dummies like flies, rather than putting it where it matters. GTFO.

Also, their copy and all their photos indicate it's meant for the urban consumer, while their ad has them riding around in the mountains. EYEROLL.

lol I am surprised they did not build one with fix gear hub.

He's a friggin tooth harvester. A psychotic brit expat, he rips the teeth outta unsuspecting hip french youth and surgically implants them in his own mouth. Steals their bikes, too.

The teeth never take, rot, and fall out, so he always hunts. Oh, and the bikes are POSs, so he always needs new rides as well.

Bogarde must be French for janky turd. A grand for a Dicta freewheel equipped bike, they could have splurged for a Shimano.

A French remake of Logan's run perhaps?

When I find a part i need for something I am putting together and I have no trust as to weather the part is 30 years old or 30 days old and I'm being charged a price on par with the real genuine and true item. I not only have to question the logic of people with your mind set but the state of the whole hobby in general. That is more to the point why so many people that knew better just walked away. Because they stopped being "OLD" kids bikes and are just kids bikes. Where in all that does the bullshit really lay?
