Sixteen-year-old Aryei Levenson is literally double the size he was when we first started sponsoring him half his lifetime ago. So when it came time to give him a signature colorway, we had to think BIG! Enter the ATF XL – let @ripe_lyfe break it down for you! Film and edit by Stew Johnson.
Thirty-five years in the Bike Biz is a great excuse to gather, and that’s just what we did! Some radical dudes, the Moeller family Minnie Winnie and a bunch of BMX-to-the-bone lifers converging on our new Southwest CO trail spot to play in the dirt! Featuring Chris Moeller, Clint Reynolds, Mike Hoder, Aryei Levenson, Kole Voelker, Def Paul and a slew of otro amigos! Filmed and edited by the one and only Stew Johnson.
Aryei Levenson took his favorite aspects of every S&M frame and we combined them into the ATF XL. It’s a stretched out ATF with a taller 5″ head tube, 9″ standover and extended top tube sizes up to 22″ for the tall set. Aryei picked out the “Purple Haze” colorway, too. The perfect all-terrain BMX frame. Aryei walks us through the build of his new bike at Goods BMX in PDX. Check out the full specs on the ATF XL here.
Aryei Levenson started filming for this project when he was 12-years-old. Battling injuries, Northwest weather and the logistics of meeting up with Shad Johnston (Good’s BMX shop-owner) to film when circumstances allowed, meant the project took a little longer than originally anticipated. We anticipate — that like us –you’ll agree that putting out an edit this sick at 13, is confirmation Aryei is well ahead of the curve. Check out the Grilled we did with him a couple months back to learn even more about our dude!
Aryei Levenson, a.k.a. Ripe Lyfe, just turned 13 and built up 20″ Whammo. Here’s a stack of sick Insta clips of our boyeee on his 18″ ATF for archival purposes, ’cause you know you’re gonna wanna look back at this ‘ish and say you knew ’bout him when….
