They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react - do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.

I believe (but not really sure) after the deal with Pacific Cycle ended he changed it up and started doing his own distribution. During the PC time part of the deal was that he was using their distribution network. I'm not sure if the name change had anything to do with the court proceedings against them or not.

I'll message Matt and ask because now I'm curious...lol

Ah, ok. Thank you for the Info.

Not sure how one handles but if you compare the old school Big Daddy to a Streetbeat it really looks like a refined design of the Streetbeat frame, definitely seems like a frame you'd like since your into the Streetbeats hardcore. Even the new BD frame you'd probably dig, it's up for pre order on a few sites.

The only thing the Big Daddy took from the Street Beat was the head tube gusset. It was just oversized on the Big Daddy.

I looked at the 2009 Failure A Muerte frame..its a bit old for NEW SCHOOL..
I wanted something..that has a unique looking frame, like a bit of a platform or WISHBONE SEATSTAY area..something.  That's why I thought about the ep, BD..
And again, I want it to handle like a BRONX BOBBER..super quick steering.
I always will love the way my STREETBEAT handles, and remember MAT rode that before the TA and at least part of that design went into building the HOFFMAN line.

I love my Failure A Muerta. And my buddies that drink live the bottle opener behind the BB.

It's still Hoffman bikes. I use Hoffman disto for selling stuff. There is no deal with pacific.  I own Hoffman bikes 100% and always have.  I'm just doing "Hoffman" on the new bikes.

I been seein that, but it's a limited release..wish there was a chrome option lol. The 19.75" TOPTUBE, does that help make it a quick, responsive steering bike?

Cool, Ok, ya when I went surfin for BIG DADDY info, I ended up on the HOFFMAN BIKES site and that confused me as I couldn't find "DISTRABUTION" anywhere.
