If there was an award for the best looking Partymasters owned by the same person, Jeremy Menduni would be top contender. JJ played with many custom colors for his previous builds, it’s been a minute since we’ve seen him put together a black Partymaster and he did not dissapoint.

Team rider Walter Mayerhofer just put together a new Partymaster built with the finest Pride Street and Cult parts. Despite looking similar to his previous builds, Walter made a few interesting changes to his setup like opting for the BMX spaced Partymaster and switching to the Cult tires.

It is no secret that we’ve been fans of Tom Kilcoyne’s riding for quite some time now, so when he told us he wanted to get himself a Partymaster frame, we were stoked! Out of the UK, Tom has been shredding the streets for years and seems to never stop.

Bikecheck: Louis Lhomel's Partymaster

When he's not hiding behind the camera to make the magic happen, Louis Lhomel can be found screaming his ass off and riding bikes. He recently built up a new The Rise Partymaster and his whip is fresh as fuck! Partymaster frame all decked out with NS parts and a one of a kind Fox fork, be assured that it rides just as good as it looks! Louis was involved in the whole conception process behind the Partymaster so it's dope to finally see how he built his own. Check out what Louis has to say about his new bike, and peep a full specs list with some dope pictures below!

This is the nicest built I've ever rode. We've put so much effort in the conception of this frame and I can honestly say that it rides like a dream. This bike is giving me confidence in myself and in my riding. The Rock n' Roll look and the clean lines make it the ultimate machine to rip everything in my way. I ditched the rigid fork for this build since I had the opportunity to have Matt's special build fox fork. The 44mm headtube is perfect since I can switch from rigid fork to tapered in no time. The bike feels so strong now and it just makes me want to go big! All in all, it's the sweetest, gnarliest, most versatile bike I've ever encountered! So stoked! -Louis Lhomel

The Rise Partymaster MTB Frame

Bikecheck: Jeremy Menduni's Partymaster

Jeremy Menduni recently built up a new The Rise Partymaster frame, and its looking way too good! Raw frame with BMX spacing, prototype rigid fork, slick tires with some camo in the mix; this thing is as street as it gets. Here's a few words from Jeremy about his current setup followed by a part list and more pictures:

"I'm so pumped on my bike right now! From looks to how it rides, I really couldn't ask for better. I'm also really excited about my Altruiste Bikes rigid prototype fork. When Gabbo heard about My Accident Last Year, he told me right away he wanted to make me a super strong fork. This thing is super beefy and has a metal insert running down the steer tube to help strengthen the fork.

My tan wall Resist Nomads really make this build for me! I always had problems with my tires because of all the grinds I do, I would get flats all the time. But rough cement ledges are no match for the Nomads sidewalls!"

Michel Plonka - The Rise Partymaster

Bikecheck: Michel Plonka's Partymaster

Over the last few years, Michel Plonka pretty much kept the exact same setup on all his bikes. Aside from changing frame sponsors a few times, it seemed that he would keep his parts for as long as possible. One time, his stem bolts happened to strip as he was putting his bike together on a trip in Austria. Luckily, a friend had some old BMX stem laying around and 10 euros later, his bike was good to go. Nobody could tell what brand it was, it didn`t look particularly good, but he still bought it and rode it for the next 5 years. He's just that type of person that finds a working formula, and sticks to it.

About a year ago, he made the switch to suspension forks after riding a rigid for almost 10 years. Here are some words about his recent changes and his current setup.

"I got to a point where riding was getting boring, you know? I pretty much rode the same bike for so long and I felt like I needed some change in order to make it fun again. I figured I would either put on some brakes and start messing with the brake tricks, or put on a suspension fork and see how that goes. I also noticed I was starting to enjoy riding fast and I was riding more jumps, so I figured the suspension fork could be a good choice as it gives you a better headtube angle for that kind of riding. There's also something way too fun about going fast without brakes, so I decided to try the suspension fork and it's been great so far.

Right now, I'm riding a The Rise Partymaster frame that I've been testing for a while, and I`m stoked! I mean, we designed this frame with the boys to make it exactly as we wanted, and I couldn't be happier with how it came out. I ride a LHD hub to do grinds and stalls, but it's getting old and It's pretty much impossible to find nowadays so hopefully mine will still last for a while. Ive also had people telling me I was retarded for riding dirt jumps with those slick tires, but honestly they've been doing great! "
