Think about a time when mountain biking was at a peak, action sports were blowing up, hip-hop was original, punk rock was great, Saved by the Bell was fresh and the entire globe wasn’t broke. Yes, the 1990’s were a great time with, good music a lot of growth and phenomenal trends with loud colors.

As a tribute to the early 90’s and the good-times they represent, hieroglyphFX set up Brad Oien with a splatter-paint graphic kit for his Intense 951 so he could tear up his third endless summer in a row. Keeping the color scheme red, white and blue with the orange Intense and nine-five-one logos allowed for a patriotic/punk look which we feel fits Brad’s style well. "Bradical" will be training and racing in Australia again this winter and we wanted him to show off his hieroglyphFX graphics down under. We will be using this splatter motif as one of our stock designs after we make a few tweaks and color changes.

hieroglyphFX's plan is to have eight stock designs (one being a splatter-paint design) for customers to choose from. The 2010 hieroglyphFX frame graphics line will cover Intense 951 and M6, Giant Glory, Turner DHR, Santa Cruz V10 (08 and newer), Iron Horse Sunday, Trek Session 88 and the Rotec RL9. Retail price on frame graphic kits will range from $110-$130 and a custom I.D. (rider’s name) for stock kits will be an additional $10. Custom graphic designs will cost an additional $50 per design. We’re aiming to have our website live and doors open for business in Janurary 2010.

    for me it's hard to take any wheeled sport seriously on a professional/sponsorship level when there's splatter paint. not hatin' just statin'.
