Eurobike 2019: Prototype DMR DJ bike and single-sided SPD

by 1

DMR proves that the best way to get your bike shot is to place a “prototype do not photograph” sticker on it, plus new single-sided SPD pedals.

DMR is best known for its steel dirt jump bikes, so when we spotted this prototype alloy bike on their booth we were pretty surprised.  Although, out of character for DMR, alloy dirt jump frames are just as proven as their steel counterparts. They tend to be stiffer and lighter, but best of all they can be left raw just like this prototype frame has been.

SSSSShhhh! It’s a secret!

According to the chaps on the DMR booth, this new alloy frame will receive similar geometry to the DMR Sect but will be significantly lighter, which has to be a bonus when you attempt to flair your neighbours pug.

The stiffer alloy DJ frame has adjustable chainstays, and if you don’t want to run the bike as a single-speed you can bolt a rear mech to it too.

Also over at the DMR booth at Eurobike are theses single-sided SPD platform pedals.

The Versa pedal offers a large V12 style platform for when you want to play at the pump track or mess in the woods, but sports a Shimano SPD system for those race days.

Just like the Vault and V12 the DMR is available in a whole hose of colours to suit your style and can be easily serviced at home.

The Versa should be available at dealers soon, but we have no firm date on the DJ frame launch.

    I guess they couldn’t fit the Vault profile on the ‘flat’ side of the Versa because it dishes too heavily to allow sufficient material to mount the SPD system? Is appealing nonetheless!
