Mike rides for Animal and S&M Bikes, and being a true legend, he has a few signature parts.

With S&M, Mike has a signature BTM (XL) frame,grips, pedals and Hoder bars and with an Animal chain. So far, the only thing I tried and tested is the Hoder Skyhigh and High bar (insanely durable!).

Currently, I am still riding the Skyhigh version (9.5″) of his handlebar and I can only tell you that this thing is indestructible. (Update #1: I switched to a BSD Raider 10″ bar. Update #2: I’m now riding Shadow Vultus SG 10″ bar.)

If you are unsure what BMX parts to go with, as you want something super reliable, then you should check Mike Hoder’s bike check.

Old Mike Hoder Bike Checks

1. BTML XL 2020 bike check

Here we have a video bike check from S&M with Mike Hoder at the release of his signature BTM XL frame in early 2020. Mike talks about what motivated the changes to make the XL frame from the standard BTM frame.

Changes include a 5” head tube from 4.6” and a 9.5” standover from 8.75”. There are some riding clips in here as well with Hoder shredding through the streets.

One cool fact about this one is that Mike did the sticker graphics himself for the BTM XL frame.

2. What I Ride 2018

In this “What I Ride” video from Ride BMX in late 2018, Mike Hoder gives us a rundown on what parts are on his bike. One cool part on his bike is a sprocket made by Derrick Girard.

It is a 30-tooth quad saw sprocket with BTM on it as well, specifically for him.

There are no riding clips in this one, just a quick rundown of all of his bike’s parts and some of the reasoning for it.

Mike is an absolute savage, so if you’re curious about what he was riding in 2018 and the parts that withstand his insane riding, check it out.

3. Mike Hoder S&M bike check 2017

This video bike check from S&M with Mike Hoder came out in mid-2017 and starts with some hill bombs before Mike explains what parts were on his bike then.

At this time the Hoder Sky High bars from S&M were new.

These come in at 31” wide, 9.5” tall, with 11 degrees of back sweep and 1 degree of upsweep.

There’s a ton of really solid riding in here to go with the bike check which makes it a compact video as well as a bit of a time capsule at the same time.
