Alright 20 Zoll, you’ve successfully teased me and left me yearning to see your new “Berlin Dirt” series. Now hopefully I/we won’t have to wait too long for the first episode to drop!
Join Matias Gormas, Tatan Quiroz and Pablo Ibaceta for an early bird session at Chile’s scenic Golondra Dirt Park. This place looks like it’s scorching by noon, so morning sessions are probably a necessity!
Custom frame building extraordinaire Ted James of TJD Bikes fame has gone and had some pretty rad long sleeves done up. Most of them have been claimed already but there are still a handful of mediums and larges floating around for those of you who have to have one right now. If you can wait a bit or need a different size, there’s another batch in the works that will be ready in a couple weeks. There will also be some kids sizes available with that batch. Shoot Ted an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more info and to work out…
Disregard this if you already follow Alliance Bike Co on Insta or FB, but for those of you who for some reason don’t, here’s a peek at and the specs on the prototype Alliance V5 frame. Things are liable to change a bit with the production versions, one definitely being the location of the integrated seat clamp. That’s getting moved up to the more traditional spot at the top of the seat tube (a change I fully support). This thing is looking pretty damn dialed already! Hit the jump to check it out.
Quick one from The Trail Collective’s trip to New Zealand. Can’t go wrong with a little Gorge Road and Lizzy Woods footage to start off the week!
First off, I have to say that the Pipeline Trails are looking the best that I’ve ever seen them! Stoked to see that a spot that’s been a staple in the Collie, Australia scene for over twenty years is getting the love that it much deserves. Jaymin “Holm” King is one of the dudes responsible for bring the place back, and when you put that much love and time into a place, it only seems fitting to celebrate your birthday there with the rest of the crew who have helped.
I just wanted to give everyone a quick update on the status of the new shirts. Originally they were supposed to be done and shipping on February 1st but things got a bit behind with the printer. I guess that’s what happens with such a complex design! Anyway, I’ve been assured that they’ll be ready for pick up sometime early this week, and I went ahead and got all the shipping bags labeled and ready so that I can just drop the shirts in, seal them up and send them out. Sorry about the delay, and thanks for the patience!…
The gist of this is that whether it be his downhill bike, his dirt bike or his BMX bike, Desmond Tessemaker loves all things two wheels. Skip to 02:07 if you want to get straight to where he shreds the latter of those at La Source!
Just the other day someone was asking me if I had ever seen NotBad, and now I know why. Pretty much any and all Gorge Road footage is spectacular, but this is on another level as far as the production value goes. The riding is NotBad either! Ba dum tsh…
It’s a definite possibility according to the email that I got from them! They also have a little deal going for those of you who don’t already own a copy of their first video. Order something from Back Bone’s online store and they’ll throw a copy in with your order for free! Even if you already have one, take the free one and pass it off to someone who doesn’t. I guarantee they’ll be stoked!
