I had my flashback post for this week all picked out and ready to go but then Schwartz reminded me of this gem from the Clint and the Eastside Crew. I don’t know what’s the best part of this, the riding, Tom Dugan looking like he’s never used a shovel before, or the ball breaking he receives for not being able to use said shovel properly.
YES! That’s the answer to all the questions you all have had as to whether or not the prototype 9.25″ x 30″ S&M Credence bars that Clint was testing will go into production. They’re called the Credence XL bars, and they’ll be available early next month! With that glorious news also comes news that the venerable C.C.R. frame is getting some updates in the way of an engraved head tube and the option to either route your cable through the seat tube or around it. Like the bars, the updated C.C.R. frames will be out early next month, and both…
I know I’ve said it before, but there have been so many good videos these last few weeks. This one from PA Woods is up there amongst my favorites!
Janis has made quite a return to video making with these last few PA Woods edits. This third and final one of the year is my personal favorite because it really conveys the sense of not just how much fun riding trails is, but also how much fun it is just being in the woods with friends. Poor Schwartz at the end though!
We all knew that Clint Reynolds was number one, but he’s finally getting that recognition from people outside of the trails scene; first with a NORA award, and now with an official decree from xgames.com. The later comes with the above video compilation of footage, photos, and some very good words about Mr. Reynolds. If you’re on the main page you’ll have to click into the post to get to the video. Sorry, the X Games player is a little wonky!
Clint posted up this picture of some new prototype Credence bars he’s trying out. They retain the same 3° upsweep and 11° backsweep as the current Credence bars, but have been scaled up to 9.25″ tall and 30″ wide. There are definitely a lot of aging backs out there that will appreciate that! No word on when or if these will make it into production but if I were a betting man, I’d put my money on it.
With Clint winning NORA last night, I can’t not post up a Credence flashback! I can’t believe that this promo for the C.C.R. and M.O.D. frames and the Credence bars is already almost two years old.
According to my IG feed Clint Reynolds took home the NORA Cup for dirt last night! I couldn’t be more stoked for him; I’m just bummed that I skipped out on Interbike this year and didn’t get to see it with my own eyes!
I can’t even believe Clint Reynolds got burned by the berm at the Pittsburgh stop of Red Bull’s Berm Burners. Try saying that five times fast! I also got to take a second to call out Mark Potoczny out for trying to jump the gate! That easily could have been another OTB right there! Good to see him back on his bike though! Spotted on PSBMX
Two things that are synonymous with summer, trails and BBQ. S&M took influence from both of those things and did a very small run of their VERY popular C.C.R. frame in a limited edition BBQ black finish. They only did five of each size (21, 21.25, and 21.5) in the finish, so you better get on it if you want to pick one up! Either hit up your favorite S&M dealer or get it direct from their webstore. Check out more pictures of this BBQ black beauty after the jump.
