I was always quite fond of this piece on Robbo’s time in Austin that Stew put together for Mutiny a few years back. The Eastside part of it starts hittin’ at 01:37.
I think every set of trails has one of those years where it seems like everything is working against them getting running. For Villij, that year was 2012. Per their words, “Roughly 1 months riding and 11 months digging. This is England I guess.”
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 always watch Mutiny’s video projects whether they have trails in them or not. If there’s one company that has it all figured out as far as video aesthetics go, it’s definitely them. Sythesis III is a compilation of clips from their 2015 video projects as well as some new clips thrown in for good measure. The whole thing is a good watch but if you want to get straight to the clips of Robbo and Dylan Lewis ripping the woods, then 03:04 is where you’ll want to head.
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!
Here’s a flashback that I had totally forgotten about until I rediscovered it the other day. This is the 2D version of the Catty section from the 3D Blue-ray film “Make Every Second Count.” I’m kind of in disbelief that I never picked up a copy of the DVD. I’m not really into 3D stuff but this would be absolutely amazing to watch on the big screen even in just this 2D version!
I love Fridays! Partly because it means that the weekend is almost here, partly cause I get to hunt around for a good flashback video to post. I’m quite fond of this classic from Bicycle Union that I rediscovered for this week’s post!
Mutiny just got in those limited edition edition camo Villij frames that they teased us with last month. They’re on their way to shops and mail orders worldwide as we speak, and you should definitely get in touch with your local Mutiny dealer asap if you want to lay claim to one. For those of you not already familiar with the Villij, you can find all the specs and info you could possibly need right HERE!
I’ve heard it said that camouflage is the new oil slick; maybe it is, maybe it isn’t. All I know is that I’d rather my bike be looking tough with some camo on it than looking like a post Exxon Valdez seal pup. Mutiny has had their hat in camo products ring for a little while now but have just given Robbo’s signature Villij frame the treatment. Get on it if you want one cause these things are super limited. They’ll be hitting distros around the world very shortly in 20.75″, 21″, and 21.25″ top tube sizes for a mere…
