Jacob Dyke joined me last week for a much needed trip to Posh to knock the cobwebs off from a season of not being able to ride much. He brought along a borrowed Sony RX100 IV and holy shit was the footage that little thing shot amazing. Here’s a little sampling of it that he spun together into a quick edit.
I’ve got a few things I’ve been meaning to bump back up to the top, so expect to see them resurfacing over the course of the weekend. I’m going to start things off with this edit that our man Jake Dyke put together from the footage he shot with his iPhone at The Battle of Gillies Creek while testing out a Moondog Labs Anamorphic Lens Adaptor.
Our man Jake Dyke whipped up this little iPhone edit from the footage he shot at The Battle of Gillies Creek while testing out the new Moondog Labs Anamorphic Lens Adaptor. Richie Sakai was kind enough sing a few bars for the intro, and of course we had to throw in a star wipe for good measure because, “why eat hamburger when you can have steak?“
I’m sure by now you all are aware of the affinity I have for my katana machete. It’s my go to tool for cutting things back, clearing the way for new lines, or anything else that requires having the shit chopped out of it. If it were up to me everybody at the trails would be armed with one. That way when the time arose for some serious clearing we’d all be able to work together on it. Ol’ Jakey Jake had other ideas though. Rather than purchasing a tool we already had, he decided to try out something different. We’d been having good luck with tools from Fiskars so he decided to give their Brush Axe a try. We’re lucky we’re all still alive! Read on to find out why!
Ben Hittle really isn’t known for his trails prowess, and maybe it’s because the woods haven’t been too kind to him. All four times I’ve ridden trails with him have resulted in hilarity. Twice because he nose cased something and went otb, once because Jake Dyke rear ended him mid air, and another time because a wild Jamaican dude nearly killed him with ghost ride gone wrong. Nonetheless he’s riding a prototype of Kink‘s new Mudrunner frame and Collateral has a bike check that gives us closer look. Diggin’ the head tube badge on that thing! Check out the rest of it HERE.
The boys at Back Bone went above and beyond putting this belter of jam together to honor Dane. The level of riding that went down was fucking incredible! There’s even a 360 heelclicker that evoked a good bit profanity from both myself and Jake who was watching with me. Head over to Back Bone for a write up of the jam along with some good pics to go with it.
Earlier this summer Mark Mulville stopped through and joined in on a session at my trails. What’s funny is that this is my first time seeing most of the maneuvers he did. That was right at the peak of everything being grown up and you could hardly see the first jump from the start, let alone anything towards the end of the lines. Luckily Chris Bird was on hand to document some of what was going down.
Our very own Jake Dyke went down at the trails yesterday resulting in a broken leg. The hospital upgraded him with some custom Bluesix titanium hardware to hold things together and get him back on his feet. Ok so maybe it wasn’t made by Bluesix, but he did get a titanium rod and screws put in there. Get well buddy! Looks like we’ll finally be putting our porch to use.
