I’m not going to lie, but I’m just a little bit scared that the end times are definitely near. After close to an entire whole decade, the unicorn that is the Terrible One Cyclops stem is finally available! The Union has an interview up with Joe that details the numerous ups and downs he’s gone through with bringing this project to completion. Check it out HERE and then have your money ready if you want one! They only made 50!
Following the decision by the county to raze the Monsieur Trails, the locals decided to throw one more jam to send the place out in proper fashion. It always bums me out when municipalities don’t see the value in spots like this and the community they create. Hopefully these guys get something else going soon.
These limited edition Groundchuck shirts were created to raise money for a very good cause. In early June the Melbourne scene lost one of it’s pioneers when Michael Bowes succumbed to brain cancer. His friend Andrei Sablinskis had reached out to a rider both he and Michael idolized growing up, Isaac “Groundchuck” McCrea, in hopes of getting him to post a video message to Michael to help brighten his spirits. Unfortunately word didn’t reach Isaac in time for him to send that message before Michael passed. Though he wasn’t able to get a message to Michael in time, he’s continued…
If you think back to the interview we did with Derrick Girard a fews months ago, you may recall that he mentioned something about having some stem designs modeled up. Well here it is, our first look at the prototype of what he’s dubbed the “PumpaNuck” stem. This could be just what you’re after if you’re looking for a stem to go along with that Quad Saw sprocket! Like I said, this is just a prototype so there’s no time frame on when or even if these will be available. Let’s just all collectively hope that they will be!
We’ll just go ahead and knock out all out Hucker related news now! He also has some new signature tires from Demolition that just dropped. The Hammerhead tires have a micro-knurled wraparound rectangular tread pattern and are available in street and trails versions (same tread pattern, just raised up a bit on the trails version). Both can be pumped up to 110 psi, feature a long lasting rubber compound and are available in 2.25″ and 2.4″ sizes. How long is long lasting you may ask. Well, according to Demolition, Hucker rode the same pair of sample tires for almost and…
Well new for the Hucker frames at least! Those of you who have been around for a while may recognize those colors and style of graphics from the early Holmes frames. It’s cool when brands pay homage to their history by doing stuff like this. Better start hitting up your favorite S&M Dealer now if you want to get your hands on one!
Thanks to the awesome dudes at Back Bone and this jam that they put on every year, Dane’s legacy and influence continues to live on!
We were truly honored when Paul Cvikevich said that he’d be down to collaborate with us on new shirt design! Once we settled on the fisher being the official spirit animal of CYDI, Pauly set to work bringing it to life in his signature style. The resulting design is reminiscent to something you may have had in your wardrobe back in your school days; and we decided to print them on heather shirts to make damn sure that they have that vintage high school feel. We’ll be sending in the order to the printer this coming Monday and we’ll have…
Sorry I’ve been slaking on the flashback post lately. Hopefully this gem from the NW will get me back in your good graces!
Tom O’Boyle having a go at a few runs through the Bluebell Trails. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think I saw that they are no more. Bummed if that is the case because the place looked like it was a blast.
