Super Mighty getting some HED

Chris Kim (on the left) of Play in Traffic Productions and Super Mighty (among other things)…hanging at interbike 2008 with master wheel maker, Steve Hed. Nice look John Prolly. I hear Steve freaked out when he saw this Supermighty design, and had to have a t-shirt.

John Prolly also posted this great Halloween alleycat promo video from Vancouver’s own… Super Champion.
