I’d kind of forgotten how good BF’s Stay Fit part was until I randomly rewatched it the other day. In my opinion, that bomb drop 360 is the craziest thing that’s ever been done at Posh! Well, that and Mulligan cartwheeling down the damn thing.
Looks like Ride hasn’t quite forgotten about us lowly trail riders after all, as they just put up a bike check on Brian Foster’s chromed out stead. That thing looks damn good but we may need to get a petition going to get a bigger sprocket up on there! You can peep Brian’s current ride and get the full parts rundown right HERE.
I still get excited thinking back on how awesome it was when Mikey won Dew Tour in his own hometown!
We as trail riders have a slight tendency to ride frames and parts a lot longer than we really should. It’s nothing for someone to show up in the woods still rocking a frame with an American bottom bracket and press fit headset, (Shawn Shoener, I’m looking in your direction). The thing about it is that both frames and parts really should be replaced every a few years. No one wants to find themselves in a twisted ball of metal and flesh because something catastrophically failed due to fatigue. Take a second to think about the forces and stress that…
Brian Foster’s signature frame has been noticeably absent from Fit’s lineup for the past couple of years. I was actually beginning to wonder which frame BF would pick if he decided to build up a new bike. Well it looks like maybe it is time for him to build up a new ride because Moeller just announced via his Instagram that Fit is about to start on a small batch of BF frames. I’m not sure exactly just how many a “small batch” is, but you may want to hit up your favorite Fit dealer now if you want to…
Fit gave Justin Spriet one of their brand new 2016 Prospect completes and told him to have at it down at the Bundy Trails. While it may be aimed at younger guys, this video shows that its perfectly capable of holding up to even pro level shredding. I do have to say that it’s pretty cool that Fit spec’d the Prospect with knobbier tires and a longer top tube so that it would appeal to kids who may have an interest in getting into riding trails!
Here’s a good one from Holy Fit; the split section featuring Justin Inman, Mike Aitken and Christian Porras. These dudes ride everything in here so if you only want to see them riding trails 00:29, 01:51 and 03:19 are the digits you’ll want to know. That first 360 that Inman does looks so wild!
Of course I’m going to re-up Brian Foster’s Posh filled section from the Holy Fit DVD!
A few days ago Fit started putting the sections from their Holy Fit DVD online. I was excited because that meant that I would finally get to see Brian Foster’s part. I know I should have probably picked up a copy of the DVD back when it came out but I slacked on it. Since I never actually saw Holy Fit I had no idea where BF’s section was in the video to know how long I was going to have to wait for it to be online. I’m delighted that I didn’t have to wait long! As expected there’s…
