What is Push Industries?

Check out this video for a good intro to Push Industries’ latest product, the ACS-3, a drop-in hybrid coil/air spring kit for Fox 36s and RockShox Pikes. The kit will allow riders to remove their existing air shock and replace it with PUSH’s ACS-3 system. The ACS-3 (fancy marketing name for “advanced coil system”) mates a proprietary coil spring with a pneumatic bump-stop that allows riders to fine-tune the lower third of travel. So, while it’s hyper-sensitive for small bumps, it still ramps up the way it should at the end of its travel, rather than harshly bottoming out. Interested in this? Check out more at Push Industries.

As a unique pairing to the Butterfly Wing Bishop Track, this road bike dons paint from Bryan Myers of Fresh Frame and a balleur build kit. I can’t decide which bike I like best, so I think it’s safe to say they’re both some of the nicest I’ve ever seen come from the shop of Chris Bishop. See more at the Bishop Flickr!
