9th Street Chase Hawk and Cam McCaul

Totally missed this one when it came out back in June, but here it is now! Outside Magazine had Cam McCaul catch up with Chase Hawk for a session at Austin’s legendary 9th Street Trails. It made me laugh a bit that Cam was caught off guard by just how many BMX pros live in Austin.

Tom Dugan Mic’d Up At The Palm Trails

I really wasn’t expecting to actually watch all 18 minutes of this, but between Tom’s unique brand of commentary and the raw footage of him, Chase Hawk, Mike Saavedra, Dennis Enarson, Chad Kerley and Heath Pinter shredding Palm just before it was torn down, I found myself all the way at the end before I even realized. Spotted on Ride BMX

Review: Odyssey Grandstand Alloy Pedals

“Holy shit, these things don’t have bearings!” Those were my exact words when I took apart one of my Odyssey Grandstand pedals to try and figure out why it was loose.

Product: Odyssey Tom Dugan Signature Grandstand Alloy Pedals

Odyssey’s long awaited Tom Dugan signature Grandstand pedals are finally available! More specifically the alloy versions of them (the plastic ones have been out for a little while now). I saw the first prototype of these a little over three years ago at Interbike and immediately knew that I’d be replacing my venerable Trailmix pedals with them as soon as they became available. I didn’t think it would be three plus years from then, but Odyssey likes to do their due diligence as far as product testing and perfecting goes. The Grandstand pedals feature a wide 105mm dual concave design…

Flashback: Hitler

I had my flashback post for this week all picked out and ready to go but then Schwartz reminded me of this gem from the Clint and the Eastside Crew. I don’t know what’s the best part of this, the riding, Tom Dugan looking like he’s never used a shovel before, or the ball breaking he receives for not being able to use said shovel properly.
