Last year Fly Bikes' owner David Quesada closed his office and started running FlyBikes from the road. Spending time on the bike and directly with the riders was the best way to get feedback and work on new products. With the help of Alvaro's camper the Fly Bikes team spent some serious time on the road. Then when the winter arrived, the crew flew over to New-Zealand to do some filming and lots of riding. With the help of a laptop computer and internet access, you can work from anywhere, even from the NZ beach. In the picture you see David taking a break and getting his surf on. Now throw a shakka!

H.I.P. Stem Provides A Simple One Step Method Of Joining A Bicycle Handlebar To Its Fork TubeSt. Petersburg, FL â€“ April 22 2005 -- Profile Racing, Inc., the USA’s leading manufacturer of Bicycle Motocross (BMX) and Mountain Bike (MTB) components, today announced it has been awarded a patent by the United States Patent Office. All bicycles utilize this type of bicycle component to secure the handlebar to the bicycle fork. The Patent Office recognized that the Hidden Internal Piston Stem (H.I.P.) represents a new and useful bicycle component that allows a bicycle rider to attach the handlebar to the fork steering tube in one-step. "Profile Racing has been an innovative bicycle industry leader since 1979. This patent continues to validate our leadership position in the industry today," said James Alley, CEO of Profile Racing, Inc.
The A-Head system has been a great invention for the BMX bike. The goosenecks from the early days followed by the Tuf- and Pro Neck type of stems had a few flaws.
First of all, with a little force you could move the stem in the forks, especially if you ran it high. The biggest problem was the headset getting loose all the time. When you were out for a BMX session, you always saw people grab the headset and turn the big nut and bigger ring to get the forks tight. Keep in mind that we did not have the right tools to counter lock the big nut and the ring. But even with the right tools, the headsets seem to get loose from time to time.
This changed with the invention of the Aheadset. I believe it was used on mountain bikes first and then got adapted on BMX bikes. Standard Byke Co were one of the first ones to change to this
