I think some classic Chris Stauffer from Bicycle Union’s “Don’t Break The Oath” video is just what we need to start the weekend off right!
I was excited to watch this to get a good look at all the work that Evan Eisenhard has been putting in at his spot. All the other footage from Posh and Catty is just an added bonus!
Last Sunday I had the pleasure and honor of seeing Chris Stauffer make his return to riding Posh after a hiatus spanning several years. Seeing him start off on the warm-up line and work his way back up to riding Chillers and Sidewinder was nothing short of magical. There wasn’t one person not clapping when he busted out one of his signature kicked out 270 x-ups over the Butcher Jump! That will definitely be one of those moments that I’ll always remember! Now, usually I wouldn’t post a video where the soundtrack has been removed by Youtube, but you don’t…
I love Fridays! Partly because it means that the weekend is almost here, partly cause I get to hunt around for a good flashback video to post. I’m quite fond of this classic from Bicycle Union that I rediscovered for this week’s post!
Dig posted up a reprint of the “Stauffer’s Got Nothing to Offer” piece that ran in issue 69 back in 2009. It’s pretty crazy to think that some people may not even know who Chris Stauffer is. It’s also crazy to think just how long he’s been out of the limelight. It seems like just yesterday photos of his legendary tables and x-ups were everywhere. I was ecstatic to see that with this reprint came a quick interview about what he’s been up to lately. Give it a read HERE!
I always get a kick out of seeing old trail footage from spots that still continue to exist while progressing tremendously. Note the butcher jump at Posh! This video is from 1997 produced by Props.

I remember this commercial like it was yesterday! “This 15 year old Seek & Destroy commercial was released in the fall of ’98 and distributed to bike shops on VHS. It also ran in an issue of Props video magazine, but hasn’t seen the light of day since then. We re-released it on the internet as a way of saying thanks to all the friends and supporters of Little Devil over the years. Riders in order of appearance: Pat Juliff, Garrett Byrnes, Brian Iarocci, Derek Adams, Van Homan, Chris Stauffer, and Rich Hirsch.” –Little Devil Brand
This brings back some memories! Not just of watching this section over and over but of going to Posh almost every week back then. Gas was cheap, there were 10+ sets of trails around B-Town, and there was always an abundance of people down to make the trip. Good times! Via Props
