Our popular Guard sprocket, the one that started it all, is now back for good! Using the same tried and true solid, one-piece CNC'd 6061 aluminum design based on our iconic Light sprocket, the Guard sprocket is designed to take whatever seriously heavy abuse you can throw at it. It's perfect for getting sideways on crankarm grinds or for bringing back the sprocket chunk. We're currently offering it in 25T or 28T options in black only, hit up your local shop or mail order to get your hands on one! Often imitated, never duplicated.
Congrats to Dill who placed 2nd at a contest at Le Taz skatepark in Montreal, QC this past weekend.
Check out the ad we have running in the November issue of RideBMX Magazine of Dillon for his upcoming signature Diller frame. You can expect the frame to drop and be available in early spring, and it's built to the specs of Dillon and what he wants like a 13.6" back end with wide clearance to fit fat tires, removable brake mounts and more. We'll be dropping more info on it soon, but for now you can go check out the sneak peek bike check we did with him here and pick up issue #195 of RideBMX everywhere now.
CKS forks have been sold out just about everywhere for a minute, but they are back in stock now. Hit up your your favourite MacNeil dealer to get yourself a set. We made a limited amount of them in Varsity colours so you better act fast. In case you missed it, check out our product explanation where we explain the difference and reason we use a dome capping on our forks.
Chris Silva is a man of few words, and very particular about what he runs on his bike. While he was out in Vancouver we forced him to run through his bike in between filming some clips. Take a quick run through his Borato V3 with a few prototype pieces, and catch some riding and pegless rail action. Filmed and edited by Zach Rampen.
While we were in Vegas for Interbike, Fudger pointed a camera at us for RideBMX and we ran through the custom Diller build we were rolling around. Get some more details on it and want you can expect to see from us in 2014. Quick note about the backend length on the Diller frame, it will be 13.6" long and not the 13.2" that Carl mentioned.
This year we took a different approach to Interbike and didn't do the usual full booth with all the bells and whistles. Instead we built up this full MacNeil bike loaded with prototype Diller parts and rolled it through the show for people to check out. Thanks to RideBMX for the coverage. Diller frames and bars are slated for release in 2014, and some of the other pieces are still in testing phases. Check out more photos of the bike after the jump, and more coverage on RideBMX. It's Diller time. Prototype Diller bars coming in 2014. Check out the clearance for wide tires on our prototype Diller fork. Still in the testing phase. Close up of the investment cast dropout detail.

Greg Flag has a couple adult beverages, takes you on a tour of his Borato V3 build with Connect cranks, and Network wheels, then proceeds to get down on some spots in the Vancouver, BC area. For anyone who has never had the opportunity to experience Greg's weird sense of humour, this is a pretty good introduction.
If you're looking for new pedals to compliment your Connect cranks (or whatever cranks you're riding), then make sure to grab a pair of our Nylist pedals. These are made from durable nylon material impregnated with glass fibers, and feature heavy knurling and large pins for lots of traction. Each weigh in at 194 grams, and are available in black, purple, and red. Hit up your local MacNeil dealer to get a pair. They are Nylists, they believe in nothing.
Ride has another One Hot Product video out, this time for our new Connect cranks. Darcy Saccucci explains some of the finder details about their design in this video. While we are one the topic of Connect cranks, take a look through the flipbook for them if you haven't yet, and re-watch the promo video we made with Taylor Elvy below.
Just a reminder that our popular Borato V3 is out and in stock everywhere. For 2013 we raised the top tube on the frame to 9", added removable brake mounts, and a Mid BB. Built tough with top and down tube gussets (M logo stamped in to the top gusset too), small dropouts, and clearance for wide tires, this frame can handle whatever you throw at it. Get the full specs and colours here, and hit up your favourite MacNeil dealer or mailorder to get your hands on one.
