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.
Get a grip! Clint Reynolds talks us through his tried and true Reynolds Grip in this new edit by our guy Stew Johnson. The Reynolds Grip is a little smaller in diameter and a little shorter in length than most modern “street” grips, made of super soft/grippy rubber and fine-tuned to Clint’s preferences. Made in the USA for S&M by ODI. Available now. Grip it and rip it.

5 days, 617 miles, 8 trains, 2 riders, 1 missing tent pole, 143 beers, and 1 hell of a time!
The concept for this trip was pretty simple; catch a train from London to Cornwall, ride some bowls, camp along the way and have a good time. We started off from London Waterloo Station and headed down to Penzance (Cornwall) on the Friday. We had a rough idea of where we wanted to go so worked our way around a few towns and parks for the next few days using nothing but trains and pedal power whilst camping and sleeping where we could until we ended up on the edge of Cornwall in Saltash and caught the train back on the Tuesday.
