BMX – Chase Hawk and the Tomahawk stem

After more than a year of ride testing and development the Tomahawk Stem is finally available at shops worldwide. The Tomahawk is based around a list of fron… Video Rating: 4 / 5     The TOMAHAWK is based around a list of front-load features that Chase Hawk requested and it is the first front-load stem to use convergent bolt axes for the front cap. This allows the stem to have the separate adjustability and “look” of a traditional four bolt front-loader, but with a smoother overall shape. It also eliminates the stresses associated with letting the bolt holes break through the outer face of the stem body. As a bonus, this means that the stem still looks “normal” when it is flipped to raise the handlebars. You’ll also notice that the TOMAHAWK makes use of the steerer tube clamping design that is found in the ELEMENTARY stem. With this unique configuration the locking bolt for the fork’s steerer tube remains straight during tightening (rather than bending as the wedges rotate around the steerer). The stem’s fully internal clamp design also means that the back of the body can be bolt-free, and knee-friendly. For the TOMAHAWK, we invested in full forging tools for the stem’s cap and body in order to maximize the strength of the material used. This stem was designed as a forging (rather than simply machining it) because forging improves a part’s strength by forming the ideal grain structure that is needed for a given shape. As a benefit, this process also means that we can offer the stem at a reasonable selling price. SEATURES Front-load design Chase Hawk approved Converging front bolt axes eliminate typical through-hole stresses and improve the stem’s look when flipped Easily accessible internal clamping system Forged 6061-T6 aluminum maximizes strength and minimizes...

Jamie Bestwick – BMX summer 2009

Monster Energy’s Jamie Bestwick video.       Name: Jamie BestwickBirth Date: July 8, 1971 Birth Place: Nottingham, United Kingdom Nationality: British Height: 6′ 1″Fear: HeightsNicknames: Burger and Burkey Jamie Bestwick never thought he would become a BMX legend. He never pushed himself to have a career as the most dominant BMX rider on the vert ramp… it just happened naturally. Now, for almost a decade… nobody can beat him. Although he started riding BMX with his friends at 10 years old, Jamie only competed in BMX events for fun. Riding his bike was just a way to hang out with his friends. After he finished school, his first priority was working as a mechanic for an airline company in England and he thought that was going to be his career. In 1996, Jamie competed in his first X Games and he placed 3rd in vert. He decided to quit his job as a mechanic and after making the switch to full-time rider; he ended Dave Mirra’s BMX three-year vert reign, taking home the gold.   Jamie gradually became unbeatable. He won every single competition he entered in 2005. Despite missing the first stop of the Dew Tour for the birth of his son, Samuel, Jamie came home with the Dew Cup, winning the overall standings. To miss one event and win the overall tour is almost impossible. Jamie is just awesome. He has too many trophies to name, but he is the 7 Time Champ of the X Games, 2006 Dew Tour Athlete of the Year and he has won the Dew Cup 5 times. Jamie is probably thankful he quit his job working for an airline company but he can probably buy his own airline right now with all the money he makes from riding. “It’s hard to imagine that the power of dreams and the willingness to take a chance has taken me further than I ever imagined.” – Jamie Bestwick Read more: Jamie Bestwick Bio http://www.kidzworld.com/article/25155-jamie-bestwick-bio#ixzz39UBPSRN0 Follow us: @kidzworld on Twitter | kidzworld on...
