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.
Practice has already been popping off from the first day of Dew Tour practice and a couple videos are starting to circulate. Check out these two quick edits from RideBMX and The Come Up.

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.
Same Lowe has a bike check over on RideBMX right now with his Borato V3. The photos were shot earlier in the spring on our Mexico trip, but Sam knows what he likes to ride and you won't see too much change on his bike over time. Make sure you read the answers to his questions and you'll get the scoop on a product are working on with him, and an embarrassing Darcy story too. You can find the bike check here.
The September issue of RideBMX is on stands today, and that means another fine MacNeil ad.

Hit up your local MacNeil dealer or favourite mailorder to check out any of our seats and posts.
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.

Sam Lowe is featured in our newest ad in the July issue RideBMX to promote our new Network hubs. The magazine is on newsstands now, and also features an article on our MacNeil in Mexico trip, so go out and get a copy now. The Network hubs are also out and availble, and if you need a refresher on them, check out the flip book we made here. They feature a female axle with 17mm bolts broached for a 6mm allen key (or a traditional straight axle system for the rear), 36 hole shell, high-quality Japenese body bearings with aluminum hardware, and for the rear hubs a one piece 9T driver with 3 Japenese bearings, and the popular Switch Drive System (SDS) for easy switching between LHD and RHD with a 3-pawl engagement system. Go out and get that at your favourite MacNeil dealer or mailorder today.
Ryan Fudger keeps digging in to the archives and keeps coming up with photos of our dudes. He's got a second gallery of photos that seem to have gone nowhere that are finally getting their chance to shine, and of course our man Greg Flag has a shot. Check out the Digital Wasteland 2 gallery on RideBMX for this shot of classic Greg style with a fakie hand toucher on a big wall at the Chandler park in Arizona from the Phoenix/Vegas trip we took two years ago.
While Greg was down in Mexico earlier this spring, Ryan Fudger shot a bike check with him detailing his Borato V3 build, with C.K.S. forks, Tabarnak bars, Top Shelf stem, Network wheels, and a lot more. If you thought a bike check could never warm the heart and up lift the soul, then you never read one with Greg. He answers some questions about his particular bike, compares it to a well worn pair of jeans, and shares a heroic story of how he once saved two women from drowning to death. Stop what you're doing and take a few minutes to read his bike check here.
