I was really hoping Tom would write his own description for his Vinyl “LP” part. Personally I thought it would be hilarious if he did it in the third person, but since he didn’t like that idea the job falls on me. Tom is tall, but unlike Barspinner Ryan he doesn’t look completely goofy riding a little kid’s bike. As a matter of fact he actually looks pretty good riding one, that is if you can look past the fact that his bars are in a position that young children in Chicago dream of. Seriously though, Tom’s part is one of my favorites in the video. The French trails he rides in it are absolutely amazing, and his local spot back here in the states isn’t too bad either.

We have some big things planned for the store that will be starting to take shape in just a few weeks. In preparation we're clearing out some odds and ends including the random sizes of shirts we have left. If they happen to be your size then today is your lucky day! For the most part there are only one or two of each size and design, so if you want it this could be your last chance! The Back Bone shirt and that colorway for Vinyl's "Dig Crest" design won't be printed again! We may switch things up on the CYDI "Brush" shirts as well! Head over to the CYDI Store
and check out what's left.
Jeremy is the man behind the new Compression “Septembre” DVD, so it seems quite fitting to post a video of him for this week’s flashback post. Tom put this together over three years ago, and it does a pretty good job of showing you that Jems can do a bit more than just edit awesome trails videos. If you haven’t gotten a copy of “Septembre” yet, what are you waiting for?
We just got in the new colorway of Vinyl's
Dig Crest T-shirt. They're available in the store
now and even come with a FREE copy of the Vinyl "LP" DVD! Get at it!
Tucked away in a small mountain town there is a incredible place for you to ride your bike. The Frisco Bike Park
is a free dirt park made for BMX, MTB’s, and any type of bicycle you can imagine. I should mention that the tax payers of Frisco are kind enough to pick up the tab for employees and running costs of the park. We happened to be traveling through Colorado on a Vinyl
Trip and made a stop to visit our friend Cody Landers who maintains the jumps along with a few other co-workers. The gallery features Mark Potoczny, Cody Landers, Chase Zink, Tom Arkus, and Ryan Popple ripping the jumps for Brian Yeagle’s
lens. Don’t be scared to put that gallery into fullscreen mode!
Well, it's truly a sad day here at Can You Dig It. Tom has decided to hang up the BMX and move on to a bike that fits him better. It's been awesome working with him, and I wish him the best of luck with his new endeavor. The Vinyl
domain name should be coming up for sale pretty soon if anyone is interested.
The Union just posted a new "First" interview that Mark Noble did with Vinyl's Tom Arkus. Tom has been kicking ass in the filming game for a minute now and that was more than apparent in Vinyl's "LP" DVD
. Find out his first moments and what videos he wore out watching growing up HERE
Hopefully you have a copy of Vinyl's "LP" DVD by now. If not what are you waiting for? If it's more convincing that you need then you should check out Kurt's thorough review over on The Union
. We also still have some copies available in the Can You Dig It Store
with FREE SHIPPING!
Old enuf to party
Hook Ups: Vinyl
1. What were the first trails you ever went to?
We always had "jumps" once my brother and I started racing, but they where mostly a couple jumps in a row then pedal to a show time "trick" set. The first real set of trails I went to where "401" in Raleigh NC. (more...)
Snow is something I certainly wasn't expecting to wake up to this morning. I guess I was under the false assumption that we were done with winter. When I threw my Jäunt beanie on this morning it reminded me that we still have a few left in the store. Get at it if you want one because we are offering the same FREE SHIPPING
deal on them that we are offering on the Vinyl "LP" DVD (which we just got a fresh shipment of). Head over to the Can You Dig It Store
to take advantage of it.
