Wethepeople drew inspiration from their Patrol line to create the 2017 Volta complete bike. With its 21.15″ top tube, slack geometry and parts spec that includes Merritt’s Brian Foster signature FT1 tires, the Volta is ready to hit the trails right out of the box. They threw Paul Thoelen on one for this promo to prove that fact. After you get done watching you can get the full geometry and parts rundown of the Volta over on WTP’s site.
Looks like Ride hasn’t quite forgotten about us lowly trail riders after all, as they just put up a bike check on Brian Foster’s chromed out stead. That thing looks damn good but we may need to get a petition going to get a bigger sprocket up on there! You can peep Brian’s current ride and get the full parts rundown right HERE.
Looking to get some Brian Foster signature bars or FT1 tires on the cheap? Well you’re in luck because everything is 15% off in the Merritt webstore this weekend in celebration of Memorial Day. Just load up your cart and put in the promo code SAVE15!
Let Vital get you into the festive Irish spirit with their take on the Boozer Jam. While I may not have a clue as to the musical choice, I do know that this edit has one of the best over shoots I have seen in my four years of doing CYDI.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Doug Foulke’s edits. There’s just something about them that truly captures the pure essence of riding trails. I was having a hard time deciding what I wanted to post for a flashback edit this week, that was until I randomly stumbled back across this Sekt Mix from half a decade ago!
Mike Brennan unboxes a shipment of Merritt’s brand new SL1M seat and it quickly gains the much coveted Brian Foster seal of approval!
This is days old news to those of you who follow us on Instagram, but for those of you anti-social media people who don’t, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Merritt to give away one of their Non-Stop cassette hubs and a set of BF signature FT1 tires.

Listen up if you are or are going to be anywhere near Richmond, VA this afternoon! There’s a “visioning session” with the city from 5-6pm at Gillies Trails that is an opportunity for the public to discuss the future of the trails and what they would like to see out of them. With the trails recently becoming recognized and legal with the city of Richmond, the local chapter of MORE (The Mid-Atlantic Off-Road Enthusiasts) has become involved with them. There have been some rumblings that MORE’s vision for Gillies is different than the vision of the crew currently building and…
The people spoke and Merritt listened! Their extremely popular Brian Foster signature FT1 Tires are now available in a larger 2.35″ size in addition to the original 2.25″ size. Purple has also joined black and blue in the color lineup. They just landed at Merritt’s warehouse so you’ll be able to pick them up at shops and mail orders within the next week or so!
Brian Foster’s signature frame has been noticeably absent from Fit’s lineup for the past couple of years. I was actually beginning to wonder which frame BF would pick if he decided to build up a new bike. Well it looks like maybe it is time for him to build up a new ride because Moeller just announced via his Instagram that Fit is about to start on a small batch of BF frames.
