About 13 years ago Vic hit me up and asked if I would be interested in buying his Dirt Bros frame from the iconic Brad McDonald photo. You know the one. The flat 1 foot table off the curb cut in San Diego. After years of tracking down parts and talking to him and Brad Blanchard on how the bike was built It was finally finished. Vic hit me up in Late Aug 2023 and how to swing by my shop to get his brakes dialed in so we made an impromptu vid talking about the bike. Sorry about the traffic noise this vid was off the cuff.

Peter Adam takes his video production in a whole other direction with the release of LIFERS, a film focused on a select group of riders in DIG's birthplace of Belfast, Northern Ireland who all started riding around 1980 at the height of 'The Troubles' in their hometown. Riding against the backdrop of violent sectarian, state, and terrorist conflict, made BMX in Belfast let's say, 'a little more challenging', than it was for most riders growing up in the eighties elsewhere.
Some months ago, RBK started the process of developing a mold for the Flyte Tech Seat. This was of course a product that was specified on the RL 20 II Prostyler, among many other Freestyle bikes from the mid-1980s era including Kuwahara, Peregrine, etc. RBK receive regular communication requesting this product, and it's now offered in three classic colors - Black, White, and Blue. Because the Flyte Tech seat is a non-Redline product that falls outside our RBK manufacturing plan, this product is offered on the shortest lead time possible and produced in a mold that has already been developed, refined, reviewed, and readied for its first shot of resin. The first order has a quantity cap to meet the desirable delivery timeframe and as RBK have no insight into demand.

Tim moved rapidly through some of the early BMX race teams, then went on to expand his brand MRD from making handlebars, race plates, stickers and brake guards and with the help of Tran Am moved on to making UK made MRD frames with a huge team and a double decker bus to ferry 'em all around. Tim has lived it.
