Sorry if you are a fixie-hater, but I love SE bicycles and DC shoes. Fixed gear bicycles are... okay.
Here is a press release on SE and DC's collab project on this bicycle...
"DC is proud to introduce the PK Ripper Fixed Gear, the third
installment in a series of limited edition bike projects from DC and SE
Racing, all designed to embrace the heritage of the brand and the
sport. A collector's item, the PK Ripper Fixed Gear bike production
will be limited to only 2,500 bikes worldwide.
Gear collaboration mixes a touch of 1970's bike nostalgia with modern
bike performance features. Inspirations for the PK Ripper Fixed Gear
bike's design aesthetic stem directly from the original DC x SE Racing
PK Ripper collaboration. The new fixed gear bike design details are
directly inspired from the classic PK Ripper BMX bike, complete with
Floval tubing, Landing Gear fork and Looptail rear end. This blend of
old school BMX and a modern fixed gear bike not only takes its cues
from the PK Ripper BMX construction but also its colorways' "Matte Black
and Ball Burnished Silver.
DC and SE Racing first joined
together in 2007 for their exclusive limited edition project ' 30 Years
of Radness.' The project honored 30-plus years of BMX history, and DC
and SE Racing celebrated with a re-release of the PK Ripper bike in its
original aesthetic for an exclusive limited edition quantity. In 2008,
DC and SE Racing joined forces once again with the release of the DC x
SE Racing 24' Quadangle. The Quadangle, or the Quad Looptail as it was
known, was a 1980's freestyle classic, and for the second collaboration
DC and SE Racing re-released the BMX bike in for the first time ever,
in a 24' version the same classic frame.
The DC PK Ripper
Fixed Gear bike's Matte Black and Ball Burnished Silver colorways will
both be limited to only 1,250 each worldwide. The bike will be
available for $1,000 at select boutiques and specialty bike shops
What? You don't know who Chad Shackelford is? Well, do you watch BMX videos? Okay, good.
Did you like Odyssey's latest DVD "Electronical?" Did you like the latest work with Sunday Bikes' web videos?
Or maybe you know more about the SHOOK interactive BMX videos in which Chad played a big part with ninetofive films...
Now you know! Well. Chad got on vimeo recently and the BMX community is stoked because we get to see... well... enough words, see for yourself!
Josh Perry won this year's JoMoPro contest and also took best trick I believe with a 360 bar catch bar catch to whip. I know that probably does not make sense to even the riders out there but basically he is doing a 360, two bar spins, and THEN a tail whip... which should not be possible. Either way, he ran through Jersey recently and stopped by Staff BMX to do this video interview and there is even some quality riding at the end so if you don't like talk... just skip it I suppose. But watch this video nonetheless...
When anybody refers to a person as a "hybrid" of Mike Aitken and Chase Hawk... that says more than anything else in BMX. Though i myself would not throw around such extreme claims as that, Cody York seems to give Chris Childs the credit and he does deserve it. Watching Chris ride you notice two things, height and bike control. height comes from speed pretty much. going fast at the ramp and not thinking "too fast" but rather "I am going to use all of this speed on this ramp." hard to explain but let me tell you when I am going fast at a ramp usually I am thinking... "SHIT!"
Chris describes riding under the support of DK Bicycles, his band, his riding style, some of his favorite things in life, etc.
Also do not hesitate to go on the internet and look up videos of him. You will not be disappointed.
