I was actually expecting the video from Lima, Inch and Matt Priest’s New Zealand trip to be a Villa Road edit, but it turns out that it’s for Verde. This epic 15 minute piece follows their whole adventure but if you’re short on time or have a short attention span, 02:12 is where you’ll find the PMP Trails part, and 11:40 will put you at the beginning of the fun where they meet up with Martyn Tambling at Gorge Road. What an absolute treat it is to watch these dudes flow through those places!
Liam “Lima” Eltham and Matt Priest’s joint signature frame from Verde has been given a bit of a makeover and is now the Oxbridge LTD. The frame retains the same geometry and tubing spec as the old Oxbridge but has been freshened up with some new graphics and paint colors. Gloss black or trans root beer are your color options and you can customize the graphics however you want because they come with four different sticker sheets designed by Adi Gilbert. The Oxbridge LTD has an MSRP of $299.99 and is available now from Verde dealers worldwide. Check out the…
Verde posted this little sneak peek of the new trans root beer color that the Oxbridge LTD frame will be coming. No word on just when these will be available, but I hope it’s soon because I can’t wait to see one built up!
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…
Lima’s Verde edit definitely deserves a bump back up to the top for another watch!
I’ve been waiting all day for Lima’s new Verde edit to drop! He teamed up with Ryan Hallett to get it done, and it came out great even though their filming was cut down to only one day due to rain. Imagine what this would have been like if they had gotten the full three days of filming in that they originally planned. I guess they’ll just have to make a second edit once they get the chance to hit up those spots that they didn’t make it to this time!
Verde and Demolition’s Takayuki Sugisaka has one fine looking trail machine, and you can check it out in detail over on the Motocross International site. I’ve loved that silver vein finish ever since back in the day when Hutch did it and called it Futuristic Black! Spotted on The Union
Another digging day means another re-up. I’m sure Mike’s new Verde edit made a lot of people’s week, it certainly made mine!
You know what I didn’t expect to end the week with? A brand new edit from Mike Szczesny! I knew Mike was living out in Salt Lake and still shredding, but hell it doesn’t look like he’s slowed down one bit since the Square One days. Via Verde
Man I was really hoping for there to be a lot more trails in Matt’s Source X Verde edit. I guess a little Matt Priest riding trails is better than no Matt Priest riding trails. Jump to 01:22 for 14 seconds of action from Blaine’s Trails, and then to for 01:45 for a couple runs through the Stay Strong Compound.
