Damn we love seeing these new builds poppin' up! This week, we have a special one, all shot on 35mm film from Max Middlestadt. Such a pleasure to see him on a Partymaster, we worked with Max on graphic designs in the past and ended up using one of his pieces on a shirt and on the left side of our Tour Bus. He recently decided to get a new bike together and came up with a solid build. Keep on reading for some words from the man himself, all the specs and some beautiful photos.

After riding at mostly downhill resorts, I wanted to get back onto something that was versatile that I could take out anywhere in between resort trips. I wanted a bike that can do it all from dirt jumps, to street to park. So when I decided to pull the trigger and build up a bike, I knew it would be a Partymaster. I have known Jeremy and The Rise guys for years from the Brose farm days and have seen first hand what these bikes can handle, so it was a no brainer. The bike is light and built well with attention to details like removable cable guides if you're going brakeless for a clean look. All in all I couldn't be happier with the build 🤘
