There seems to be more and more new product releases, and 2011 products coming into stock, which can only mean one thing: we’re getting close to the start of the riding season! That is, if you are one of many who are lucky, or unlucky enough to experience the magic of winter, and this white stuff called snow. If you weren’t forced into the depths of your basement to toil away endlessly on a trainer or forced to only ride indoor skate parks, well you’ll probably be just as happy that there is a wealth of new product finally coming into stock.
For Sidewall Distro, the start of the season means getting in the newest goods from Hoffman Bikes and Snafu, among other great BMX brands. This year is no different, and for 2011 there are some great new products like the Snafu Chroma Grouppo shown above. Inside you will find all the most commonly replaced parts on a BMX, all in a matching colorway of black, orange, purple, green, or blue. Not shown is the fact that the seat and post are one piece, and will be available in either the padded or plastic Solo seat with Poly Pedals, Mirracle grips and PC Bar ends. Even better the set will come at a relative bargain for an MSRP of $59.99 for the padded or $54.99 for the plastic.
Need a new frame or new rims? Sidewall has you covered for that as well, check out the goods after the break!
If you are riding brakeless and you are looking for a strong, wide rim with a stylish flair, Snafu has the answer. The Kashiwa rim, which is a 7000 series alloy rim with an extruded cross section. Engineered for brakeless freestyle, front race and disk brake MTB applications, the pinned and welded rims are built for maximum strength, with the tall rounded cross-section adding stiffness. The Kashiwa will be available in Black, Blue and Purple painted finishes and will include a heavy-duty plastic SNAFU rim strip. Currently the Kashiwa is for 20″ wheels only, but will be available in 26″ soon for freeride MTB. MSRP $59.99
Finally, if you are in the market for a new frame, and aren’t swayed by the lugs of the C.R.E.A.M., the Hoffman Bama is a great choice. The Bama, which has been Seth Kimbrough’s signature frame for some time now sees little change for 2011 other than new graphics and paint. Made from 4130 Chromoly, it is available in 2 top tube lengths, 20.5” and 21”, and weighs in at a light 4lbs 8oz. New colorways include Black Jade, Pearlized Crimson and Flat metal for 2011, with an MSRP of $249.99.
