This twenty year old commercial that ran in The Shady Bunch is just one of the many reasons that Standard was the end all be all of BMX awesomeness in the mid-nineties! This recording of it playing on a tv is the only trace of it I could find on the web. Even as ghetto… Continue reading Flashback: 1996 Standard Commercial
Man, I forgot how much shady ass shit went down in this classic video from Base Brooklyn! They did call it “The Shady Bunch” though. My favorite has to be the 7-11 locals ruthlessly and repeatedly throwing a small child down into the mud. I’d love to know the story behind that one! Aside from… Continue reading Flashback: Base Brooklyn – The Shady Bunch
“A Cult trails frame eh?” That’s what I thought to myself when the first CAD drawing of what would eventually be dubbed the Cult TRF (Trail/Race Frame) showed up on Instagram. While a trails frame is a pretty radical departure from the direction Cult has been on since its inception, it does make sense if… Continue reading Up Close: Cult TRF Frame
This video is titled “Sevs Intro” on Vimeo but I have no clue what it’s an intro to. I was thinking maybe it was from some back in the day Long Island video that I had never seen. Problem with that is that the Death Cab For Cutie song in here didn’t come out until… Continue reading Flashback: Sevs Intro
It’s been over a year since Neal Wood (Cult’s product designer) posted up a CAD drawing of what I speculated to be a potential Cult trail frame. I hadn’t heard anything else about it since then and honestly thought that the project was dead. That was until yesterday when Neal posted the whole CAD drawing… Continue reading Cult TRF Trail Frame
“The wack pack is on the attack!” Why anyone would think that would be a good slogan to sell bikes is completely beyond me. Given it was the 90s and shit was kind of kooky, but even at 15 I thought this was weird. It certainly didn’t have me saving up my lunch money to… Continue reading Scanned: Robbie Morales & Lawan Cunningham’s 1995 Univega Poster
Man, Robbie’s nosed in over clear of the first jump at the second X Games is permanently burned into my memory. I really wish I could find a picture of it cause it was something to see!
So this just popped up on Cult’s site! I seriously stared at it for a good 30 seconds taking in the awesomeness and debating if it was real or not. Yeah yeah, I know it certainly looks real, but I was having a hard time convincing myself that something this incredible is actually going to… Continue reading The Simpsons X Cult 24″ Duff Cruiser
Here’s an oldie of Cult’s bossman Robbie Morales getting it in back in the day. Not only does it have some footage of the infamous 7-11 trails but it also contains what might just be the best trails run of all time. Five toboggans in a row! Classic fucking Robo!
The other day while helping out at my parents house and I noticed the remnants of some BMX pictures that I used to have hanging on the walls. There’s actually still a poster of Brian Foster permanently fused to one of the walls due to a broken water pipe many years ago. Anyway, seeing those… Continue reading Scanned: Robbie Morales’ Ride Issue 25 Cover
