SKYLMT has a few new products for sale in their shop. Their tees are restocked and the long-awaited Steven Jensen bars. These 4.8″ black bars have a 12º backsweep and a 4º upsweep, coming in at 29″ wide. See more information at SKYLMT.
SKYLMT Welcomes Dew Sippawit
This is one of the most fast-paced, balls to the wall, FGFS video I’ve seen in a long time. Leave it to Matt Reyes behind the camera work and SKYLMT!
Colby Elrick: Josh Boothby
Colby from SKYLMT has been putting in some serious time with one of FGFS’ most talented riders, Josh Boothby and it’s worth the watch.
This is a PiNP exclusive!

Rec Fail: Matt Spencer Desert Skid

Last year at Interbike, Matt Lingo took this amazing photograph of Matt Spencer skidding his SKYLMT in the dry desert sand outside of Las Vegas. Loving the mountains in the background!
SKYLMT: New Soft Goods
I always love the SKYLMT shirts and this new run looks great. Swoop up at SKYLMT and be on the look out for even more from the brand in 2013.
Christian and His SKYLMT FGFS
Christian from Golden Saddle Cyclery is one of the raddest kids I know. He’s a hard worker, smart and a real ripper when it comes to FGFS. Even though Kyle and I give him constant shit, truth be told, we’re both damn impressed with his character and work ethic.
Before I left town, I went around the corner from the shop to shoot some photos of his SKYLMT, along with a few shots of this gap he hits with ease. Check them out!
Trackosaurus Rex: Christian’s SKYLMT

I don’t think Tracko will ever post FGFS, unless it’s Tom but he still took some photos of Christian’s SKYLMT frame and popped them up on his Flickr. Head over and check them out.
Matt Spencer for SKYLMT
I have been waiting for this video since Matt Spencer announced he was riding for SKYLMT. Matt’s really stepped his game up here, blasting his street tech style all over Long Beach, Chicago and beyond. Seriously dude, this is top notch.
This is a PiNP Exclusive video.
Forest Parker Rides with the Chrome District
One of my favorite riders to watch slay the fixed 29’r with grace is Forest Parker. Here’s a new video promoting Chrome’s new District backpack. Filmed by Colby Elrick of SKYLMT.
SKYLMT: SL-1 Frame Now Available
You cannot go wrong with these SKYLMT frames. I’ve got a True Temper Supertherm bike and the tubeset is legit. This frame is 100% made in the USA and thrashed by some of the top riders in FGFS. It’s available now (size small only – size medium on the way).
“When we decided to make a SKYLMT frame we knew two things must be true. It needed to be strong and it needed to be light. We have definitely achieved both of those goals with our SL-1 frame.” -Tyler Johnson
Pick one up at SKYLMT today for $550
Matt Spencer’s SKYLMT
I have to admit, I was a little sad when I heard that Matt Spencer was going to be riding 26″ wheels. Note that I said “a little” because it really doesn’t matter and smaller wheels will only enable Matt to ride harder and bigger than ever. When he announced he was leaving Volume, I knew he was going to be riding for SKYLMT. These frames are incredible. They’re light and made in the USA.
Matt’s SKYLMT weighs in at 25 lbs complete, as shown here and he’s already thrashing on it. While we were at the Island, I took it out for some lens love. It’s almost impossible to shoot a bike in SF without having a MUNI bus lurking in the background.

SKYLMT: Jensen Signature Model FGFS Frame
I didn’t get to make it out to this but Brad at Nemesis Project threw a party at NAHBS featuring bikes from Solid, SKYLMT, and Timberline. In the mix was this peculiar frame: the Steven Jensen signature model. What detail stands out the most to you? This is sick.
