If you haven’t noticed yet the website is looking a bit different and things had slowed down a tad. On the surface it may seem like things are being let go but in fact a fresh new look and a handful of updates are just around the corner. We’ll be partnering with some great brands, bringing in some new voices and of course launching a fresh look that is long overdue! At this point things have just begun with an update and coding already underway but rest assured we’ve been out stacking content and ironing out the details! We’re about a week in and another away from things heating up so stay tuned for all sorts of good coming your way and as usual…thanks for the continued support!
With some changes on the horizon and a few things in the works I’ve been looking back at old content. Here’s one of my favorite old flicks from the early days of tricks on track bikes…more info on what’s coming in the next week or so!
It’s not often you see the BB17 Transfer rolling around in this colorway so after seeing this one I had to snag a few. My buddy Nate built this up for his girl Sierra and It’s definitely nicer than some of my past bikes. OmniZen is always a good choice and I’ll never get over this flat grey/gloss black paint…more after the click!
With cross season just around the corner I was beyond stoked when local heroes Squid Bikes offered up one of their Rattlecan rigs to give a go. Albeit a demo ride, this second version of their popular CX frame came built up with Force Hydro and a fine set of shoes by way of Portland’s Hi-Fi wheels. I’ve only had it about a week but with it’s glossy Spray.Bike finish and how well it eats dirt I’m already loving it. Much more on the way after spending some more time with it!
With the summer solstice comes the longest day of the year and the best day to be out riding late. Daniel, John and I took the camera and freestyle bikes out for a long evening of jumping on things. Came away with this quick double from Yound D at this popular bus stop ledge…seeing a bit more FGFS stuff in the near future!
Aside from hand built frames you don’t often see custom color rides that stray from the otherwise stock paint. Nate‘s green Rush Hour Pro is a prime example of the potential a touch personal flavor can add to a build. Despite getting this bad boy already in the mean green, it’d be hard to argue that 2007 never looked so good! We met up for a handful of photos yesterday that are after the click and be sure to check him on the regular for more…
Even with all the eye candy parked at Velo Trap this bronze Panasonic demands attention the moment you walk in. The bright orange is impossible to miss and as shiny as the day it first hit the track. One of the many NJS frames at the trap this is still one of my favorites if for nothing more than the color…
