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…
Back Bone’s 2011 Trailmix is one of my favorite trails edits of all time and just what I needed to rewatch to help boost the ol’ spirits during this cold snap we currently have going on here in the North East!
I’d kind of forgotten how good BF’s Stay Fit part was until I randomly rewatched it the other day. In my opinion, that bomb drop 360 is the craziest thing that’s ever been done at Posh! Well, that and Mulligan cartwheeling down the damn thing.
A fitting flashback seeing as I’m about to hit the road for a quick day trip to Posh!
Jacob Dyke joined me last week for a much needed trip to Posh to knock the cobwebs off from a season of not being able to ride much. He brought along a borrowed Sony RX100 IV and holy shit was the footage that little thing shot amazing. Here’s a little sampling of it that he spun together into a quick edit.
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!
