Dependables is a new series that The Albion is doing where they ask riders about their five favorite products. The D-Man had the first crack at it and I agree with the majority of his choices. It's funny that he has his own pair of signature grips through Duo yet the Bohan grips are his favorite. I don't blame him though! Give it a read HERE
This section of the DVD has a unique mix of riders ripping trails and concrete. Featuring: Denis Mowgly, Mark Mulville, Brandan “Punjab” Pundai, Chris Doyle, Ryan Melia, Isaac Hoefling, Gary Young, Alex Magallan, Kevin Porter, and Chase Zink.
Damn this is good! So, Chris Doyle has a cousin named Roger Sullivan who was a BMX pro back in the 80s. While I wasn’t exactly familiar with Roger, I was familiar of the fact that he was Chris’ cuz. You learn all kinds of things through Instagram! Anyway, Chris took a trip down to Florida to visit his cousin and wouldn’t you know it the dude still shreds. I mean he’s a bit of a loose cannon but he definitely goes for it. I absolutely loved every minute of this! Chris just needs to get Roger out the the trails!
Mike Farnham fired off some shots during the Texas Toast dirt festivities and as promised here they are in a nice gallery form. Hit the jump button to open up the gallery and make sure you put that sucker in fullscreen! (more...)
I’ve seen, been to, and even entered a pretty good number of dirt contest in my day, but I have to say that this year’s contest at Texas Toast was by far the best! You could feel the energy in the air, and almost every rider had a huge smile on their face during their runs. With all the rain that they got beforehand it was an absolute miracle that the contest even happened. Hats off to Clint, Matty, Will, and the rest of the dudes who built the course and managed to salvage it from the deluge of rain. I’m already looking forward to next year’s Toast and I’d highly recommend that you plan on being there. Our buddy Geo Jenkins put together this edit of the highlights from the dirt finals. If it doesn’t motivate you to get down there next year then you should probably go ahead and get yourself a bar of wax and go join the rest of the ledge monkeys.
Demolition is putting their Doyle X Anthem Pivotal seats on sale through October 31st. You can pick one up through their STORE for just $14.99 and it ships for free! That's one hell of a deal if you ask me! I actually just saw one of these in person for the first time last week and they look bad ass! Act fast if you want one because not only does this deal not last long but something tells me that the seats won't either.
Kink is a company that commands a lot of respect. Over the course of almost two decades it has grown from a small company producing axles and pegs into one of the biggest companies in bmx. Over the years they have put out a slew of legendary products such as the El Guapo pegs, the Freebird frame, the Jim Cielencki signature frame, and the list goes on and on. These days they produce a full line of bikes, frames, parts, and even clothing, and every year the line gets more and more dialed. A lot of thought goes into the design of each and everything Kink makes, which is why my attention was instantly piqued when I heard that they were going to be releasing a trails frame. Pictures of the frame first started surfacing just over a year ago and they had a lot of people talking. Fast forward to now and Kink's Mudrunner frame has gone through the same rigorous team testing that all of their products do and is now available at shops and mail orders worldwide. I shot a few questions over to Kink's product designer/brand manager Matt Antes to find out a little bit more about the recent addition to their frame line. Check out what he had to say and have a closer look at Kink's newest entry into the trails frame market. (more...)
Ride just released the top five nominees for the NORA cup categories, and I have to say that I'm stoked on all of the dudes in the running for #1 Dirt Jumper. Brian Foster, Chris Doyle, Mark Mulville, Mike Clark, and TJ Ellis make up the top five this year. I really doubt it would be too hard for you to figure out who I'd like to see win! Also exciting is that the Blue Falcon is up for video part of the year for BF-it and that BF-it is very rightfully nominated for video of the year!
Demolition and QBMX are switching it up a bit and heading to the left coast for this years trails trip. Their journey will begin next week and they'll also be hitting up some shops along the way. Needless to say, I can't wait to see the footage from this one!
