Vinyl “First Hits Dyke Out”

For some reason I’ve gotten into the habit of doing most of my new jump testing solo. It makes things a bit nerve-racking, but as stressful as it is, I’m sure it’s nothing compared to testing new stuff out at H-Wood. Rock-paper-scissors is definitely the way to go as far as determining who gets to be the guinea pig. Protoz got the honors of testing out the new Dykye Out jump first, but Tom and Popple weren’t far behind. Via Vinyl 

The Top 10 Trails Web Edits Of 2013

Well another year is drawing to a close and it just so happens to be the first full year that CYDI has been in existence. The other day I got to thinking that it would be cool to put together a list of "my" top 10 trails web edits of 2013. I had a few immediately in mind and figured I'd just take a look back through the archives to find the rest. Big mistake, because I ended up jotting down like 30 different videos. It took a bit but I finally settled on what I think is the cream of the trails web edit crop of 2013. Like I said, these are my picks and I'm sure not everyone will agree with them. Feel free to discuss or chime in with your own! Hit the jump button to check out mine! This is STICKIED until next year, so check below for new post! (more...)

Vinyl’s Colorado Road Trip

Colorado, what can I say about it. I’ve been to a lot of places in my 33 years but nowhere that has had the same feel of freedom that Colorado has. Tom and the Vinyl dudes headed out there earlier this year and what a trip it must have been. Incredible parks and ripping trails all set amongst an almost unbelievable backdrop. This edit does an incredible job of capturing all of the awesomeness that is Colorado!

Exclusive Video: Vinyl “LP” DVD | Tom Arkus

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.
