I had these on my bike. The word here is had. I had to take them out because they were rusting. They were chrome-plated and the rust was starting to form. Had to send them for powder-coating. These are the best BMX forks that money can buy, and also one of the toughest. Sure, they are a little heavy but the peace of mind you will ave when you have one of these on your bike, knowing that they will take anything you give them, sort of puts your mind at ease.

Red Flight cranks anybody? I did not know RedLine were still making these but it looks like they are. Cool eh? They have been making these for quite a few years now. Dual-pinchbolts and sealed bearings.
RedLine has a rather colourful history. It seems that in the ABA Hall OF Fame, there are more RedLine riders than anyone else. Check out the history of RedLine and the bikes they made and read how RedLine came from a manufacturer of motorcycle chassis to BMX.
Check out the bike that Eddy Meng is getting now. It is the, I think, expert-sized PK Ripper with a 20" top tube. Why they dropped the Perry Kramer PK is way beyond me. You can check out his postings on the Singapore BMX Forums. SE Bikes is coming out with some cool stuff and while I am sad to see that they are nowhere like the SE Racing of old, I am at the same time glad to see that the legendary brand is still alive and well. Check out their site at http://www.sebikes.com and you will see lots of eye candy
Check out the frames from Intense. Very unique looking. This is the Podium Frame series for the little racers. Looks pretty slick but I will take the old traditional way of making BMX frames. Something to look forward too perhaps? Check out http://www.intensebmx.com

Bought these forks to put on the cruiser as the older S&M Pitchforks were kind of rusted. Gonna send them for powder-coating. In case any of you guys wanna check out what Sinz has to offer, you can check out their website at http://www.sinz-racing.com and you will see that they make all kinds of parts. Very satisfied with the purchase and these forks ARE stiff. If they can handle a buffalo like me, they can handle anything else, guaranteed!

My buddy Steven Leong built a track up there in Bandar Utama, Damansara. Wonderful concrete track it is and I must say that it is the best that I have seen, track-wise, in a very long time. Steven built it out of concrete because he did not want it to erode. There are pros and cons about making the track out of concrete but I must say that that the pros well outnumber the cons. I went up there in May and took a couple of videos. See for yourself!

Hi all. Just trying to give a new look to the site. It has been vacant for too long with nary an update. This is a test so sometimes, you may see the text and layout change here and there but it is only because I have not had a set idea as to how to set up this page. Once I reach a decision, it will be final. Thanks and welcome to Singapore BMX part...well...whatever
