SE Bikes is set to release the first ever 26" PK Ripper Looptail this week. But as you can clearly see, we have designed this highly anticipated bike in collaboration with The Hundreds streetwear clothing company. Check out the custom Jags motif on the entire frame, fork, & bars. For sure you've never seen a bike like this before. Since Day One, The Hundreds has been about California Culture / Los Angeles Lifestyle. California has been a breeding ground for some of the world's most prolific subcultures. From the punk scene of the '80s, to gangsta rap and skateboarding, California lifestyle is all about Doing It Yourself, questioning authority and the norm, and being different. At the core, The Hundreds is influenced by this attitude, and all the various subcultures that we grew up in during the 80s and 90s. The SE/Hundreds collaboration bike follows the same logic.

See more of his work down here:
Usually we only have a few days to get a new FATBMX advertisement finished. When deadlines near, the mags are starting to stress out and want a new ad...uh yesterday! Instead of sending an existing ad I always try to come up with a new one. When thinking of a theme it helps to keep things simple. Here are a few FATBMX ads that appeared in DIG, RIDE UK, BMX-a TOPE, Rebelyell, 2020, Freedom, Zwanzig Zoll and Cream. Since you probably don't
