Words by Chris Smith…

Throughout 2015 I have been involved in the development of a new street frame by Impurity Bike Co. The initial motivation behind this project was to create a frame that is: A) Robust enough for burly modern day street and ramp riding with; B) Sensible angles and geometry for nose manuals, regular manuals, grinds, airs and; C) To be visually appealing.

Product News: The ‘VP VARIAL’ Headset (VP-USA)

One of the latest breakthroughs in the Mtb industry is the ‘VP VARIAL’ adjustable headset by VP Components – The headset allows 3 degrees of head angle adjustment – Fresh Huh!? The headset itself has been designed to allow 3 degrees of trail side adjustment! Furthermore, the stem can be adjusted within two minutes! Voila: The mountain biker now has a headset that can easily be dialled to the handling characteristics required – NICE!

Now the question… How long will it be before we see a BMX rider rocking one of these headsets??? A product like this could be very useful indeed to the modern day flatland rider – When working on front wheel tricks the headset angle could be set steeper; and vice-versa for rear wheel tricks! Obviously it could be used for street riding if could be proven to be strong enough – Again, mint when the time comes to to drop that (as Chad Degroot would say) “Front Wheel Boogie”!

Ps. Drop us a line if your a retailer interested in ordering VP Comoponents – Chris@VS

/// News: Boneyard Website & Promo ///

Just got this email from Jon Edwards (of Dig/Naive/Trail Kill fame!):

Hey Chris,

I know yourself and Valleyside have supported the Boneyard over the years. The place has gone through a lot of changes of late, all for the better and continues to improve and support all locally.

Just wondered if it would be possible to mention they have a new website up over at: http://boneyardskatepark.co.uk/ and a new promo video, shot by Andrew Lawrence: http://vimeo.com/36230655

Hope your well!

Kind Regards

Jon Edwards” …
