Sorry it’s been a few weeks since the last flashback post. For some reason Fridays have been especially crazy for me lately. I’m back on it though with Bicycle Union’s PA Woods edit from 2013!
Looks like I have another frame to add to the ol’ 2016 Trails Frame Buyers Guide! United and Bicycle Union have a history of collaborating together on some rad stuff, the latest being the new “Prime Mover” frame. Slim tubing, classic geometry, Skeletor on the graphics, and includes a Bicycle Union top tube pad; sounds like a winner to me! Give the promo video above a watch and then hit the jump for the pics and specs!
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!
I wanted to dig up a real gem for this week’s flashback, and I think this five minute Villij section from Robbo’s 2011 “Who Knows” video more than qualifies!
Jimmy Rushmore has hit the big time! United has given him his very own signature socks to keep his feet comfy. These suckers will fit most people’s tootsies and are made from a thick and stretchy blend of cotton and lycra. They’ll be hitting UK dealers in February. No word just yet as to if they’ll be available in other parts of the world, but I’m sure if the demand is there Jimmy’s socks will be finding their way onto the feet of riders around the globe.
I love waking up and finding stuff like this in my inbox. Epsom is very high on the list of places that I want to visit one day. It looks like an absolute blast to ride and the crew of guys out there keeping the place rolling are legendary. 2014 may have started off a bit rough for them but they powered through and got the trails dialed back in and running as smooth as ever.
Jimmy Rushmore is testing out a sample of the new trails frame that United is working on. I couldn’t think of a person on their team capable of giving it a more proper thrashing. I’m not at liberty to divulge too much info on the new frame just yet, but I can tell you that it’s going to be made in the USA.
Laid back session from somewhere in Kent. Well, as laid back as it can be with Jimmy Rushmore and Scott Malyon participating.
Fuck and yeah! This new edit from Bicycle Union is just what I needed today. Nothing like Robbo, Jimmy Rushmore, Freddie Houseman, Ross Head, and Jon Robinson shredding some PA and Jersey Woods to brighten the mood!
