At Vapetoberfest 2013, I had the pleasure of meeting Bay City Vapor founder James Livingston. He told me about the company’s upcoming mechanical mods, which are designed and made right here in California. James’ background is in manufacturing, so he’s particular about craftsmanship and conductivity. Bay City Vapor mods aim to offer high performance and an elegantly understated style. I was particularly enamored with the XXIX, which is a gorgeous copper mech. If copper isn’t your thing, Bay City Vapor has the SurfRider series, which is available in brass and steel. These mods feature a unique pinless design, which is one of the more novel features I’ve seen in a mechanical mod this year.
Be sure to check out the video above to see prototypes of the first round of Bay City Vapor mechanical mods, as well as to learn more about the company’s pinless design and the upcoming 26650 model. Also, Bay City Vapor has no affiliation with the Bay City Rollers.
