Ok not really, it’s just available on walmart.com through one of their retail partners. Still funny nonetheless! Click HERE if you want to cop one, and let’s just hope that Darin’s old Diamondback contract included royalties in perpetuity.
It’s been about a year and some change since the US Diamondback program went tits up leaving Darin Read without a bike sponsor. Though we haven’t seen anything from him in a while, something tells me he’s still out there shredding the woods and concrete of the Northwest as hard as ever.
It’s been a long time since we’ve put up a flashback post, so here’s a good one from Diamondback featuring some fine Pacific Northwest soil. Remember when Diamondback had a BMX team…
This Diamondback edit seriously makes my day! Lukas and Nathan Halahan KILLING JP’s trails on their little bikes. Think about the scale of things for a second. Them hitting those jumps would be like us hitting stuff that was 10 or twelve feet tall! Nuts!
Kagen Doyle’s Diamondback edit is definitely a little more street heavy than things that normally get posted here. Here’s the thing though. There are clips of Lynnwood peppered throughout all that street madness. Unfortunately it’s more than likely the last unseen footage that we’ll ever see from there.
The Halahan brothers rip, as is pretty evident in this new edit for Diamondback. There’s no trails in here but we do get to see some of the first video footage to come out of The Wheel Mill‘s jump room. It crazy to think how big those boxes must be to these dudes! It doesn’t seem to faze them at all because they absolutely kill them in here.
The man aboard the Profile X-File above is Mike Hammond and he’s the subject of Ride’s Friday Interview this week. Mike heads up the BMX program at Diamondback and is the one making sure they continue to stay heavily involved with the NW trails scene. I don’t know about you, but I don’t know of any other “big” companies kicking down beer and shovels at the trails. This interview with the man at DB’s helm gives some insight into their motivations and future plans.
