When Kink offered Jim Cielencki the chance to design a signature frame in 2001 (see inset), Cielencki opted for a light and simple approach, one that offered two bottom bracket choices (American or Euro). Kink's re-introduction of the Euro B/B helped to spark a period of bottom bracket evaluation in BMX, which ultimately lead to the introduction of the Mid B/B.
