UNIV has more heat this summer, this time on the BMX side of things. The Encinitas shop organized an epic custom BMX bike collabo with Verde, Odyssey, Duo, Defgrip, Ludwig Van, G-Sport and The Laboratory called the Rust Heap. The Rust Heap, named for its unique coat that makes it appear as if it had been salvaged from a long sunk freighter on the bottom of the ocean will not be sold but will be on display for shredding at UNIV all summer. Check out some detail shots as well as action shots featuring Mike Ardelean, Jim Bauer and Gary Young and a complete component list after the jump.

Something else interesting from UNIV, they’ve just dropped the Generic Skateboard, a throwback to “unbranded generic beer and generic mass market food items from the 1970s and 1980s.” The all black 7-ply USA hardrock maple is 8″ and available only at the shop in Encinitas. We like it.
