Kurt did a nice little "Insight" piece on Brian Foster's signature bars from Merritt. Head over to The Union for a full rundown of the specs and just what makes these bars awesome aside from the fact that they are the Blue Falcon's.
It feels a little strange making a post about myself! Anyway, I have an interview over on The Union that you should check out if you ever wondered who the man behind the curtain of this site is. Check it out HERE
Holy shit! I’m impressed that he was able unclip and get out of this so well. Spotted on The Union
One of the really cool things about BMX is that it's a relatively small community and if you stick around it long enough you end up meeting the people who you looked up to when you were younger. When I was growing up Stew's videos were in constant rotation at my house and had a huge influence on both myself and my friends. Somewhere along the line I ended up meeting Stew, and even though I've been friends with him for quite a number of years now I still kind of do a double take when I get a text from him. Stew is the subject of the latest "Firsts" interview over on The Union and it's a read that's certainly worth checking out. Peep it HERE
When I was growing up the first thing you did when you got a new issue of BMX Plus was to flip right to the Radical Rick comic. Actually I probably looked forward to those more than anything else in the magazine. Jeremy Pavia tracked down Radical Rick's creator Damian Fulton for this weeks "Through the Lens". The resulting interview and pictures that go along with it are hands down some of the the coolest things I've laid eyes on in a while. This is an interview worth checking out even if you have no idea who or what Radical Rick is!
Ted Van Orman has an amazing photo gallery of New Zealand's Gorge Road Jump Park over on The Union right now. I seriously never get tired of seeing that place, and after looking at Ted's photos I have drool running down my face. Check out the gallery HERE!
The other day I was looking at the stats of the ads over there and noticed that the Freed ad had gotten quite a lot of clicks. I'm guessing people are pretty curious about this new brand. Honestly, I had never even heard of them until Kurt mentioned that they wanted to advertise. Of course I did a little research to make sure that they weren't wack and was surprised to find a brand with a strong belief in American Manufacturing. Kurt's been working on an On The Horizon on Freed for a little while now and it finally dropped today. Head over to The Union to learn all about Freed Bikes and the ideals behind the brand.
The Union has an awesome interview with Hal Brindley and Leigh Ramsdell about their new project Oldscool BMX. They reached their Kickstarter goal in less than 48 hours, meaning that very soon we'll be able to get our hands on some of the classic designs from 2B, Play, and Useless. If you have no idea what those are then you definitely need to read the interview. If you do happen to know what those are then you definitely know that you'll want to read it! Check it out HERE!
