Us Versus Them Framesets

Us Versus Them has teamed up with SE Bikes to design the best fixed freestyle frameset available.  Spearheaded by UVT’s James Banuelos, the Us Versus Them frame was designed from the ground up to withstand the harshest abuse that riders are putting their bikes through. Tested by Gus Molina, Josh Boothby, and DJ Mull, the frame has been put through months of abuse to make sure that the frame is bombproof. The Cr-Mo frame has been fully heat treated with the top and down tubes being double butted. The seat tube has been cut-out to allow clearance for larger (50c) tire sizes along with ovalized & tapered seat and chain stays for extra tire and foot clearances.

The 73mm mid bottom bracket and Campy compatible integrated headset are both externally machined and a sealed Tange headset comes installed as well as a trick integrated seat clamp. Finally, the Landing Gear forks are heat treated & butted for even more strength.

Walmart bike ride

By now everybody heard of Walmart selling fixed/single speed bikes. Well… one of our fans decided to get one and try it out and invited us for a ride and to take some pics. We will be posting soon full review and before and after pictures of this bike. So far… it is not bad… If you are on a tight budget and want to get a low priced fixed gear or single speed… this is it. A little bit too heavy, probably due to the wheels with gazillion spokes on them but still not bad. So far this bike made it through a 10 mile ride around Downtown Saint Pete , half of that ride through a heavy rain. Stay tuned for a full review
