So a few blogs have already picked these images off my Flickr account. I was waiting for clearance from Milwaukee Cycles before posting them, but since the cat's outta the bag, they gave me the go ahead... A few months back, Milwaukee Cycles approached me and asked if I'd be interested in testing out their Crusher. Initially intended to protect your chain ring from abuse while playing polo or just doign tricks, a few people have upped the ante into using the guard as a surface to grind or stall on. Much like mountain bikers, trial riders and bmx riders use their sprocket guards, this guard is meant to take a beating and it has. Well, Drew shot me an email of urgency last week and shipped me their prototype for a lighter, less expensive and a 130 BCD guard. It runs on Sugino RDs, which cost about $80 versus the $250 Sugino 75's the earlier model was made for. I spent the weekend abusing it for the sake of science and it's held up much better than the original one did to these grinds. Milwaukee will also be releasing this Crusher in the 144 BCD as well. Here she is, in all her glory. and some older footage of the OG Crusher in action Ghostride from John Prolly on Vimeo.
