Bike Build: Supreme x S&M 1995 Dirt Bike
Supreme has partnered with USA BMX brand S&M for a limited edition remake of their highly covetable and inimitable 1995 Dirt Bike which released last week, May 7th, only through Supreme’s website.
The two USA-based brands collaborated to remake one of S&M’s classic models from 1995—the Dirt Bike. The Dirt Bike was the hottest ride in the 90s and now it's back again, dressed in Supreme’s signature red colorway.
Everything about the appearance and the geometry of the Dirt Bike is modeled after the original bike’s standards. It’s essentially a replica made by the original manufacturer with primarily the same specs that were featured on the original product.
While they revamped the classic model, Supreme added a few touches of their own. “Supreme” is stitched on top of the leather seat which also features the signature S&M crest. Across the stunning Redneck stem, a favorite amongst BMX collectors, Supreme is stamped on the front plate as well as “Redneck” running across the top. The head badge is a rarity as well—alongside the crest reads “Supreme Est. 1994,” which pays homage to the year the iconic streetwear brand was founded. Supreme is etched on the bridge of the rear triangle in the brand’s classic Futura font. The frame itself has a Supreme decal running along the downtube as well as two custom-made padsets (black and red) which were made exclusively for this model. The Supreme logo is also stamped on the fork’s dropout.
Other unique features include the Gumonder tan-wall tires and the Dia-Compe Tech 77 rear brake. Sized at 22.2mm, the seat post is a nod to the vintage style of the bike and is a rarity on most modern BMX bikes. In addition to the iconic S&M Redneck stem, are the S&M Slam bars with custom decals that are reminiscent of the 90s era. On the inside of the 44t sprocket reads “S&M Bikes” and “Made in the USA.” Black grips were also provided as a replacement.
Everything about the 1995 Dirt Bike represents the quality of the early days of S&M, spruced up with some exclusive touches from Supreme.
We're gearing up to make a few needed upgrades to the bike, so stay tuned to our YouTube and Instagram.
