Hoffman introduces 2012 Bama line


By all accounts, I'm guesstimating that Seth Kimbrough has been riding for the Hoffman Bikes crew since 1999. Starting out as a teenager on a Dirty-130 with Profile Blackjack sprocket and Primo Powerbite cranks that were half worn away from crank slides, Seth progressed alongside Hoffman Bikes to become a legendary name in the realm of progressive street riding. In fact, Seth pioneered much of what is popular today, including opposite grinds and stalls, clean freecoaster riding and opposite 180s and 360s. And if that's not enough, he has his own Wikipedia page and two fourth place finishes in the X Games.

Recently, Seth spent some time in Oklahoma City, Okla. to film the above promo for this 2012 Hoffman Bikes Bama line, which consists of Seth's signature frame, fork and bars, and it's classic Seth, taken up a notch as usual. Aspiring pros take note -- Seth is the definition of a professional taking his own route through this thing we call BMX. Now I'm getting off this computer to go enjoy the New Year. Be safe out there.
