Just got word from Steve over at OS-BMX about a huge interview he and a couple of the other fellas from the forums over there just completed with S&M’s Chris Moeller. It is an excellent read, giving Chris’ thoughts on the history of S&M, the current state of BMX, and for the vintage guys out there, a bunch of info about the different models of bikes over the past 20 years. Check it out, now. Oh, and while you’re there, sign up and spend some time digging around. Some good people on that site.

Also in S&M news, they’ve got some new chrome parts out – Slam XLT bars, Race XLT bars, and Race XLT forks, are avialable now, with Pitchforks and LTFs coming soon. Just saw Ryan Guettler’s new bike on the Mirraco site as well, looking straight outta 1986, with purple, pink and chrome – is this the 2nd (3rd?) coming of chrome?

As a kid, there was a certain magic to getting a new frame, or hell, even a new part. Especially when it was something that you KNEW was not only rad looking, but also built to last – it is a feeling I still get today. Any part I’ve purchased from S&M Bikes usually fits that bill, as they continue their tradition of hand-building frames, forks and bars in California for S&M, Fit, and Metal. Vital has a video tour of their operations led by Sean McKinney, shot in October by Bret Rohlfing. Always dig this kind of behind-the-scenes look into turning raw metal into rolling machines.
