Gavin Drumm is a rare talent hailing from the land down under. Born and raised in Australia, he’s been at the forefront of blading for many years.
Gav has always been known for the savage smoothness in which he executes his tricks. He possesses an ever expanding trick vocabulary and his skating is excitingly unpredictable. It’s hard to know what’s coming next, which makes Gavin one of the most compelling bladers to watch.
We’re proud to finally introduce him to the team ranks. Cheers Gavin and welcome aboard. Filmed and edited by Dom West.
After going through all of the stainless steel spacer sliders and rigid spacers one by one for quality and removing the bad ones we thought we were all set.
However, Hakeem then found a catastrophic error. Almost all of the axles are slightly too thick and although they will fit through the spacers they will not fit through the bearings. This could be from either the electroplating being too thick or a problem with the steel axle itself.
Either way, it is a huge set-back that stops us from delivering the frames at this time. We are extremely upset about it.
I can’t express in words to you how devastated we are by this. We have obviously contacted the manufacturer and this is the returned message:
Wow. I have wanted to write this message for a VERY long time. The CRS frames are at Boston Logan Airport.
We have now received word that they have cleared customs and are awaiting pick up. What happens now… We are going to need to get a truck and then head down to a warehouse near the airport (door to door shipping would have been an extra $700). Then we will have to settle up with all of the customs fees and what ever other bullshit fees they throw at us. Then load them all up.

First off we’d like to apologize for the lateness of this new update. We have been diligently coordinating with our factory to get the last few details of the latest parts we received worked out. […]
As you can see we have received the latest samples for the CRS frame chassis, urethane spacers, stainless steel spacer sliders, rigid spacers, and axles (photos). These new parts have taken longer than we had hoped to arrive so unfortunately there has been additional time added to our completion estimation. […]
One of the new delay factors is that we will have to wait until the Chinese New Years vacation is over to proceed, as our factory and all its workers will be on break for the next 3 weeks. This is the only time off they get during the entire year so we are waiting patiently till they get back to continue with the process of getting our project under wraps. We expect the factory workers to be back by the middle of February so we expect production to begin by the end of that month. This will push the completion and ship date of the frames till late Spring. […] – The CRS Development Team.
