Gusset Clean

Words by Chris Rye | In Conjuction with DIG & 4DownProps 

During the course of the Props X DIG “Go Fast Pull Up” documentary production, Gav Cope (MODE BMX) messaged me about the possibility of doing a small run of new, limited-edition Metal Bikes frames as a cool tie-in project and homage to the very first Metal “Kizz” Mk1 from 1999. I hit up Jimmy about the idea and he was all for it.

After researching a bit I discovered S&M had 33 sets of “lightning bolt” dropouts remaining from when they produced the Metal Rebel Contender in 2006-7, which we acquired for the project.

Metal Bikes co-founder Joe Carnall graciously provided us with the original Kizz sticker graphics and powder codes to faithfully re-produce the Mk1 artwork and colors. There will also be a raw option.

Big Dave Harrison, who worked at Spooky Cycles in late-90s, and who made all the Mk1s of Metal, Terrible One and FBM frames, is going to be fabricating on this project with his company Pedal Driven Cycles in Athens, Georgia.

The frames will have “GO FAST PULL UP” laser cut out of the top gusset and serial numbers stamped 1-33.
