PRESS RELEASE: DYEDBro

May 11th, 2016 saw the passing of the Canadian riding legend, Steve Smith.

Born in Cassidy, British Columbia he has been arguably the most prolific and influential Canadian Downhill racer. A driven athlete and fierce competitor, Smith was humble and grounded off the track. He was a remarkable influence on all young and aspiring Canadian gravity racers and others around the world.

It’s because of this that we created this very special frame protector, honoring his career as one of the greatest and with the intention of raising funds for the Stevie Smith Legacy foundation.


The kit is available in Black/White/Black & Red


#LONGLIVECHAINSAW


The kit is available to order from www.dyedbro.com from Thursday 16th April and is €39.99. It comes in 3 colour variants of Black, White and Black/Red.

We are using the hashtag #longlivechainsaw in addition to #dyedbro


You can show your support by pre-ordering the new
Long Live Chainsaw frame protection kit now.

 Shipping to Canada is almost the same as the entire kit. Too bad as I would love to support Steve's foundation but not Fedex.

 Yup, shipping to NZ is more than the kit! $61.35 euro = $111.16 nzd just for shipping! Maybe once lockdowns over and I'm back earning some $$$ I'll re look at it..Awesome foundation to support.

 I don't understand. The package isn't even big. Their kits come in a 8cmx5cm cylinder from what I remember.

 I've contacted a few companies by email to tell them about similar situations (insane shipping charges for a small item). Most of them found a other way to ship it for less. Try your luck man. It would be a shame..

 Hey all - thanks for the post comments.

Let's see if I can provide some clarity...

Shipping - we appreciate the cost BUT please know we don't profit from shipping. FedEx charge us these amounts, partly down to location but also that we offer a premium service. Example - Canada is 24H service from us in Madrid, Spain. We have used cheaper carriers previously but the loss rate was staggering and we couldn't sustain it. Likewise, we tried to subsidise the shipping and again it was unsustainable.

As for the contribution to the fund, we are giving 5% of the sale price WITH a goal of giving €1,000 by May the 11th. We will keep donating after that date.

Have a great weekend all.

 Really good quality product. I bought four kits (Pray for Straya, Hawaiian, Tie Dye and Cartoon 50:1) but really wish this one was available when I had ordered. They did an awesome job with it.

Regardless, the shipping is expensive but after shipping and exchange, it still cost a little less than what is currently available in stores. My 2cents... bulk buy and save! Also nice to see they put a design on the downtube strip. The other kits only provide clear downtube protection.

 Ya I've had the Guadalupe and pray for Straya kits.
At around $70 to get to the states it's expensive.
But they have the coolest designs by far imo.
Still want the space one with little ufo and rockets. And now I have to add chainsaw to the list.

 Looks amazing, there are no details on if any of the purchase price is going to towards the Stevie Smith Legacy foundation... It would be nice if @DYED Bro was a little more transparent on this.

 The company (and the name) existed before they made this wrap, and sell a bunch of other products. It's a bit weird in this instance, for sure.

 Is it just me or does this smack of pulling the heartstrings to make an extra profit on some cheap accessories

 No, I don't think that's the spirit of it.
