During my stay in Japan, Hiroya Morizaki invited me to visit his riding spot in Tokyo. Luckily I brought my camera and shot some combos. Hiro pulled the hardest tricks with an incredible consistency and precision, almost unreal. Thank you Hiro for welcoming me! Thanx to Christoph Gerber who helped me with editing and made the best out of the footage.

Aresbikes released more details and pictures of their 2014 frames. Except the Ashura frame, Aresbikes didn’t name them differently, but gave them new features. All frames have an integrated seat clamp now and will be available around march 2014. Check the pics and more infos below.
Rebirth of Aresbikes’ first frame. As the 1999 Ashura, the new edition has a bent down tube with a gusset and is a 100% flatland frame. The most distinctive feature of this frame is the monotube right behind the BB which joins the chain stays (wishbone design). Colors: gloss reddish brown, mat. black. Versions: without pivot and with removable pivot.
S-Kill V2 frame
I don’t have many information yet about the The S-Kill V2 frame. It looks more “street” now and has a longer seat tube (215 mm). Colors: mat. grey, mat. navy. Versions: without pivot and with removable pivot.
Aplus V3 frame
The Aplus V3 has 470mm / 18,5″ top tube with a gusset. The frame has an integrated seat clamp, Aresbikes’ famous tapered chain stays at the dropout end. Colors: trans red, trans black. Versions: without pivot or with removable pivot.
A few month ago Aresbikes announced a new frame for 2014. The 15th anniversary (2014) frame from Aresbikes is a rebirth of the Ashura frame from back in the days. Looks like a 100% flaland frame with a bent down tube.
