A persons perspective with a Go-Pro camera… Steven Jensen shows his sick flatland FGFS skills off! also sporting I believe his prototype signature Sadio bars called the Stray!
I have no idea what’s going on with Volume right now Thrasher V1 completes are just out, and we all new it… the Thrasher V2 is now in production. This is pretty much what I expected the original Thrasher to be like (apart from the 14mm dropouts)… longer TT for less toe over lap, larger tyre clearance etc. etc.
These will be arriving at Volume in July so expect an Autumn or later release in the UK. It will give me chance to save for a 14mm axled track hub.
I’ve always loved the Cutter geo its as near as track as a trick bike can be and I’ve had two of em… such a strong reliable frame… any way check out this new version in this red flake colour way… how sick is this build?? I’m also feeling those Resist Nomad tyres with red wall… Resist said the tan walls are to follow in June/July 2011…. (hurry up!)
Also Volume are introducing this new 700c/26″ Crypt fork, I’m assuming this is aimed at anyone who needs a reliable fork to run with either 700c or 26″ wheels.
More dope shit from Volume!
This build looks real good, just what the industry is after! a mix of Volume, Resist parts and more! This model you’ll see has the updated 2011 graphics.
What Volume say:
One of the most frequent asked questions is, when are we gonna do a fixed complete. We’ll… now! We’ve been working on our Thrasher complete for awhile and it’s getting closer to coming out. Our release date is March. Our goal was to keep it high-end yet still be affordable.

A new tougher and wider upgrade to the previous Hipster Bar these have a 2.5″ rise and come in a clamp size 25.4mm, pretty sick, but how come they don’t do a 22.2mm?
With the majority of riser bars on the market being aluminum, we really wanted something that riders can abuse without sacrificing strength in the process. We’ve seen too many aluminum bars break due to how brittle the metal is. Yes aluminum is cheap and light as hell but would you jump off a building with em’? The Hipsters come from the same tubing as our 13-butted, 4130 CRMO, heat treated BMX bars.

When I first saw this frame earlier this week I was pretty sure it wasn’t designed specifically as a 26″ fixed freestyle frame, but I’m sure quite a few people did and will give it a try… but why fixed? I really like this bike and I’d prefer to ride it with a free wheel as a big bmx! rad!
Anyway what Volume say:
“Apparently our new Vandal frame has gotten a ton of feedback from all sorts of peeps in the industry, I mean blogs. Is it a FGFS or a DJ? The Vandal is basically our Sledgehammer 26″ BMX, except simplified. We’re not saying it’s one or the other. It’s a 26″ frame that was designed to easily maneuver around for whatever you ride; fixed, dirt or just cruise the curbs.”
