The weekend is here and it’s time to party! Whether you party as hard as the POWs used to, that’s up to you.
I had never even heard of Quebec’s CMB Trails until I spotted this cinematic edit from their Octobiker Fest Jam over on PSBMX this morning. Octobiker Fest sounds like the working title of a biker gang themed gang bang porno staring Octomom. I’m just saying!
The new 2016 FBM Steadfast are here, and they are beautiful! The Steadfast has been a perfect trails machine ever since it’s inception, but FBM has somehow found a way to refine it even more with some minor tweaks to the geometry and tubing spec. The head tube angle has been steepened a quarter of a degree to 74.25°, the rear end has been tightened up an eighth of an inch to 13.75″ (slammed), and the standover height has grown a quarter inch to 9.25″. As far as the tubing goes, the top tube is now a svelte 1.25″ O.D.,…
The sun always shines at the La Poma Bike Park! Well, except the one day Joe Simkins picked to film this edit.
A few weeks back we did an Instagram contest with Merritt that had our BMX mounted audience pretty stoked. Not wanting to leave out our friends rocking the bigger wheels, we’ve teamed up with Gravity Components for another Instagram contest. What’s up for grabs is a pair of their GL Thin lock-on grips, a Gradient Stem and a set of their Riser bars. The rules are the same as last time! Simply follow us (@canyoudigitbmx.com) and Gravity (@ridegravity) on Instagram, and then just repost the above the photo with the hashtag #gravitycanyoudigit. We’ll pick a winner next Tuesday!
Sometimes people send me weird shit that they think pertains to digging. Most of the time it’s kooky garbage, but every now and then a gem like this comes through. First off, I never noticed that a sumo dohyo was actually made of clay. Probably due to the fact that the only sumo wrestling I’ve ever paid attention to is the kind that goes on at a carnival when some friends go at it in those inflatable sumo suits. Second, since I never noticed an actual sumo dohyo was made of clay, I definitely never noticed that it was a…
You’ll have to know Portuguese to understand the interview portion of this, but as far as Murilo’s riding goes, that transcends all languages. Sure there are some flips and spins, but there’s also some glimpses of steez. I also can’t not mention the pretty amazing backdrop around the Pá Soca Trails.
I always hate posting stuff like this, but unfortunately after being in existence for over twenty years and being one of Brazil’s oldest sets of trails, the D’Rossi Trails have been leveled to make way for an industrial complex. Let’s take a second to pour one out for all the trail homies down there who have called the place home over the last two decades. You can check out a couple of older D’Rossi edits after the jump.
We get minute or so of Colony’s Anthony Napolitan, Nathan Sykes and Victor Salazar riding Sanctuary’s interesting trails setup before they move on to the park stuff of their trip. It’s right after the intro and digging b-roll, so just click play to get into it.
That last video I posted of Danimal testing out his new lines reminded me of this old gem from the Gully Trails. I damn sure hope everybody’s new line testing goes a lot better than it did this day for Binny and Andrew!
