The T1 Cyclops Stem Is Available… No, Seriously!

I’m not going to lie, but I’m just a little bit scared that the end times are definitely near. After close to an entire whole decade, the unicorn that is the Terrible One Cyclops stem is finally available! The Union has an interview up with Joe that details the numerous ups and downs he’s gone through with bringing this project to completion. Check it out HERE and then have your money ready if you want one! They only made 50!

Attention T1 Fans!

Our friends at Terrible One are getting ready to pull the trigger on another batch of Garrett Byrnes’ signature SFA frames. They are taking pre-orders until November 22nd so you have a little less than a week to get your money together to lock one down. The good thing about pre-ordering is that not only are you guaranteeing that you get one, but also that you get one with the exact options that you want. This year’s colors choices are gloss clear, gloss black, dark roast brown and deep sea blue/green, and the top tube sizes are 20.75″, 21″, 21.25″…

Terrible One – Sweet Fuck All Frame Timeline

This timeline that Terrible One put together of Garrett Byrnes’ signature frames starts off with the legendary Garrettcode and then shows the struggle of getting his second signature frame, the Sweet Fuck All produced in America. If you ever wondered why why there was such a gap between the first Maas made batch of SFAs and the ones when S&M took the reigns in 2010, here is your explanation!

Garrett Byrnes Animal X T1 Tire Promo

Very, very, very rarely do I post things on here that don’t have any trails in them. This is one of those extra special occasions that I do and I highly doubt anyone will question it. I’ve been lucky enough to have been able to call Garrett a friend for the better part of a decade and a half. I’ve also been able to do the same with Ryan Navazio for just about as long. They came together to work on this promo for the new Terrible One and Animal collaboration tire, and the result is pure magic. Classic Garrett…

2016 Trails Frame Buyers Guide

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…

Russell Brindley – Live Slow, Ride Fast

I’m not exactly sure when it was that I first saw Russell Brindley ride. If I had to guess, I would say it was at one of those crazy contest that Red Bull did in Australia where they carved out a ravine into a course that was part trails and part park. I don’t remember the exact details of it, but what I do remember is that Russ absolutely killed the thing. Hell, he may have even won it! I’ve been a big fan of his ever since, and that said, I was beyond excited when I opened up an…

Limited Edition Posh/Catty Benefit Posters

In my humble opinion that photo above is one of the most iconic trails photos of all time. It’s been nearly 20 years since Ed Docherty captured Groundchuck laying over this perfect one-handed table at Posh. The photo went on to become the two page Standard Bykes “Come to Standard Country.” ad that hung on damn near every trail rider’s wall back in the day. I still have the one that once hung on mine, and even as tattered as it is, I’ve still considered getting it framed and hung up again. Well now it looks like I’ll be going…

Flashback: Chase Hawk – How To Motowhip

Joe has been posting a bunch of classic edits that he’s had a hand in over on the T1 site. I had all but forgotten about this motowhip how-to that he filmed with Chase Hawk back in 2009. Man, I watched this at least a dozen times when it came out! It didn’t help my whips at all but watching Chase do these sure is candy for the eyes.
