A young media star in the UK who goes by the name Smokey Barz (Jamal Edwards) took the SK8/TRIQ and created the BASSBIKE. If you’ve never heard of Smokey, he’s kind of a big thing with 27 million views on his YouTube video channel and his popular website.
Sony worked with Nick Gale Custom Cycles and created a deep dark red bicycle with a built-in SK8/TRIQ, complete with gold accents on the spokes, battery, remote, red LCD lights and more. The ride is pretty freaking awesome looking, but also a complete menace in some regards. I imagine you’d cause a few meltdowns if you rode this thing around with music on full blast around your neighborhood. And it’s most certainly a far cry from my Trek 1.5 road bicycle.
Smokey also “asks quickfire questions” with rappers Flo Rida, Tinchy Stryder, Labrinth, B.O.B, and listens in on a Griminal freestyle in the featured video. It’s funny to see the bike inside a building while he does interviews. I guess if you were using one of those you would have to take it everywhere with you.
