Danny MacAskill Riding a New Signature Model Skye in Imaginate #4?

Danny MacAskills new bike

Having been sponsored by Inspired Bikes for awhile now, Danny’s bike in most of his recent videos has been an orange Inspired Skye – his signature frame. In the latest episode of the Imaginate series, Danny is seen riding this blue Inspired Skye, which looks like it could be a new model. Other than the color (which could just be a custom job for Danny), the bike has what looks to be a tapered head tube while the current Skye still has a standard 1 1/8″. If there was going to be a new model, this would be a good time to get it ready – just in time for Danny’s big Imaginate clip which will be released on June 18th.

See the bike for yourself in Imaginate #4 after the break.

tapered headtube…big deal

go to the 20second mark in the video here for a new rear dropout/axle style

@ccolagio, that doesn’t look much different from the current one: http://www.inspiredbicycles.com/inspired_skye_bike_p33.php# It just uses a chain tensioner instead of horizontal dropouts so the chainstay length never changes.

Is Danny no longer sponsored by HOPE? Those look like Magura brakes.

hubs and stem are definitely hope. brakes are shimano saints

and yes youre right – wasnt aware of that – only looks like very small shape changes to dropout
