Demolition has a really good interview up with Hucker and Kris Fox where they talk about the influence Sheep Hills has had on them. I usually tend to think negatively when I think about Sheep. It's kind of hard not to when you've grown up on the East Coast with the best trails in the world. This gives a cool perspective on what it was like being a kid when Sheep was in its heyday. Putting the chrome pitting moon dust, homeless tweakers, RC car photo shoots, and god knows what other ridiculousness that has occurred out there aside, it must have been pretty awesome to have gone there as a kid. Head on over to Demolition to check out the interview and photo gallery.
Demolition has an interview with the D-Man on his take on the East vs the West (Please note that I put East before West like it should be). I pretty much agree with all of Chris' observations on the subject. Especially the one about every single person who can pedal a BMX bike in California being on some companies flow team. Jump over to Demolition and give it a read.
Demolition has been sneaking in pics on their Instagram of Chris Doyle's new signature "Maiden" forks for the past month or so. Up until now they've just been pics, but today they dropped some details on the specs. Here's what we know so far.
-They'll feature the same 32mm offset that Doyle's previous "Concorde" fork had.
-They have a completely new dropout design.
-Fits 2.4 Tires.
-Full 100% 4130 Heat-Treated CR-MO.
-Butted 1-pc 163mm long Steerer Tube.
It seems to me that the Maiden forks are a natural evolution from the Concorde forks that came before them. They kept all the stuff that worked, refined the dropouts, and reshaped the leg/crown junction to accommodate big monster truck tires. Makes sense to me!
Sorry for the lack of updates in the past few days. Internet has been spotty where I'm at and that's made looking at things pretty tough. We'll be back up to full speed tomorrow, but until then make your way over to the Demolition site for some interviews and a photo gallery from their NW trails trip!
Looks like Demolition has some new signature forks in the works for Mr. Doyle. These just showed up on their Instagram, and according to them they'll be available sometime in March. No info other than that but I would expect we'll be hearing a lot more about these leading up to their release.
Demolition switched things up this year and headed to the Northwest for their trails trip. I was actually expecting this to be mostly skatepark footage with how much rain they encountered on the road. I’m happy to say that that’s not the case, and other than a few clips from a concrete park this is all Northwest trails goodness!
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.
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!
