Just a reminder that Richmond, Virginia is the place to be tomorrow for the third running of The Battle of Gillies Creek. See you there!
Bérenger Cordier spent a couple of days at La Poma and decided to strap his GoPro on for a few runs. Well, I assume it’s a GoPro. Whatever it is the footage is crisp! Spotted on Shape.
Our old friend Brian Barnhart has an amazing collection of photos up on DIG from last season at the Freedom 40 trails. Brian’s work is always amazing so do yourself a favor and check out the gallery HERE!
It doesn’t even seem like all that long ago that 8.25″ tall bars were considered humungous. These days though… that’s definitely on the smaller side. And for that reason Merritt is blowing out their remaining 8.25″ Brian Foster signature bars for just $20! You already know they’re 8.25 inches tall, but the other specs are 29″ wide, 12° back sweep, 2° up sweep and a weight of 27.1 ounces. They feature multi-butted heat treated chromoly tubing, dual radius bends, a 19mm crossbar and of course come with the Blue Falcon’s seal of approval. If that sounds good to you then…
Unfortunately the curtains have fallen on Riverside, California’s Palm Trails. Definitely bummed to see that yet another spot is no more, and especially one as unique as Palm. Usually I steer away from posting vloggy shit but Dylan Stark used this one to document the final session that went down early in the morning before the plows showed up. R.I.P.
I figured I’d keep it Huffy and follow up last week’s flashback post with another one of their commercials. This one for their 1984 Stu Thomsen signature model. I imagine they either sent him a full shipping container of these things so that when one broke he could just pull out a fresh one, or the ones that he actually rode were made by someone else and not from Huffy’s proprietary munster cheese tubing. If only they put as much into their bikes as they did their commercials!
Something I’ve wanted to do for a long time is to be able to help trails raise money for what they need to keep on keeping on. That’s why I jumped at the chance to help Chicago’s Garden Jumps out by carrying the awesome new “Horto in Urbs” t-shirts that they made in the CYDI Store. First and foremost, 100% of the proceeds from these goes straight back to The Garden for tools, supplies and to fund future projects. So pick one up and you’ll be directly helping to contribute to their growth! They’re available in black, heather grey and…
I just noticed that Deluxe has a pretty slick new website up. It’s loaded with all kinds of pictures, videos and of course product information, so take a few minutes and to give it an exploration. Peep it HERE!
I’ve been anxiously waiting for Back Bones’s official ACT Jam video to surface and they certainly didn’t disappoint! I mean, with James Fox handling the production and all the crazy riding that went down, how could it? Jump to (no pun intended) 06:00 if you want to get straight into the King of Dirt part. I really suggest watching the whole thing though!
