Blazing the trails, boosting a park, or shredding the streets, Sean Sexton’s bike is an all-around BMX machine. We nabbed some photos of it while shooting Sean’s interview for the June 2009 issue, which will be dropping mid next month. Until then, check out the bike, and then track down the new issue next month to see it in action.

I cut the steer tube on the forks so they’re flush with the top of my stem, other than that it’s stock.
It looks like it’s almost time for new grips…Hell no. Until they’re completely smoked I’m going to run them.
Other than your grips, what parts do you go through the fastest?
Rims and pedals.
On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being most dialed, how dialed is your bike?
It’s about an 8 right now, because I’ve been running this set up for a couple months now, and the paint is so so. Other than that it’s in good shape.
Tell us about your frame coming out.
It’s called The issue and it’s my signature frame from Kink Bikes. It comes out this spring (soon) and it has a slightly smaller standover height than the traditional Kink frames. It has a custom “rising sun” seat stay bridge, 75 degree head tube angle, removeable brake mounts, and it’ll weigh 4lbs. 14oz.
