Black Market Bikes are a big favorite with myself and lots of friends.  They are used for both racing and just plain fun in parks and dirt jumps.   They are just great bikes built by a great guy, Carter Holland.  Check out their hardtail line and their new “Killswitch” full suspension bike at:    Black Market Bikes













Black Market Bikes is proud to announce the the arrival of our prototype short travel frame….the “Killswitch”.

We worked closely with Pablo Tafoya in developing our “Hammer-Link” design creating a our compact low profile suspension frame. The Hammer-Link provides 4 inches of rear wheel travel while maintaining a stiff, flickable feel with hort 16” chainstays and the lowest seat height of any suspension frame….period. 

The Killswitch has the ability to be run single speed or geared for true versatility. Handmade from 6061 T6 aluminum with function and durability in mind, the Killswitch was meant for the bike park… this is not one of the usual suspects in fresh paint. Like anything we produce, there was a need for something more… and the time has come to… “throw the switch!!!”

Canberra, Australia (September 6, 2009) – Kathy Pruitt (Santa Cruz, Calif./Jamis) gave the United States its fourth and final medal at the 2009 Mountain Bike World Championships on Sunday. The U.S. women earned silver and bronze medals in 4X, a bronze in elite cross country and finally a bronze in the elite women’s downhill to bring the American medal count to four. Melissa Buhl (Chandler, Ariz./KHS) also landed inside the top 10 with a ninth-place finish in women’s downhill. Twelve men contested the junior and elite men’s downhill with the top finish coming from Cody Warren (El Cajon, Calif./Decline) who placed 13th in the elite men’s category.
