I recently got a pair of Medicine Man Bars from Grime Bikes. The new bars have a touch more back sweep, which helps w/ those hard impacts. The relaxed feel of the bars makes for a more comfortable ride, and more forgiving landings. Your wrists will thank you later, when they aren’t being broken off from tricks.
I recently picked up a pair of the Cadence Raw Sienna Trousers after most of my jeans blew out. It’s hard to find pants that can withstand a lot of saddle time. The double layer of denim on the ass really helps keep these pants alive, and the 3% Lycra makes me feel like i’m not even wearing anything. (more…)
WHEEL TALK STICKERS are now available online. This is the 2nd run of white on clear stickers that we’ve released, and there aren’t much left. So start pinching those pennies and get your hands on some before they’re gone, because they won’t be around for long. Click HERE to place an order and see more details.
Here’s a couple pictures of my most current Specialized PFIX build. If you look closely you can see a fly on my bike in both shots. For those who are interested, I’m running 30×10, w/ 175mm cranks, 420ac Sadio Booster Light Fork, Sadio Hoops, Specialized Compound Tires, YNOT Straps, & Sadio 420 Bars.
I’m sure most of you have already seen pictures of the new Frame from The Grime floating around the internet. Here’s a photo that I took of Devon Lawson‘s Ghost build while he stayed at my pad in SF over the weekend. I had the chance to ride around on it for a bit, and decided it doesn’t feel much different from the G.O.A.T. Other than the fact that the seat + top tube are a lot more out of the way. I’ll have additional photos of the bike up by tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled for those. SIZE | MEDIUM
I took this photo of JeffyD sporting his Summer 2012 RIDE T-Shirt while I was in San Jose yesterday. I spent the weekend down there riding w/ Jeff, Mike, Ed, combs and whoever else wanted to session w/ us. I’ll probably be spending more weekends down there now that Ed + Jeff live together, and have mad couch space.
I took this picture of Jonah Kessel’s SADIO Booster Fork, while he was up here in the city a few weeks ago. The Booster Fork is probably one of my favorite parts from SADIO, and is available in Optimus Prime colors. (420ac, 430ac) This Spring, they’ll have an entire line up of Light products. I don’t know how they can make this fork any lighter than it already is. Especially when it is one of the lightest forks on the market.
Here’s a look at Jonah Kessel’s fresh set of SADIO Viper Rims (32mm). I took this while he was staying in San Francisco last weekend to spend some time filming with me. I love rims that are drilled offset and have eyelets for added strength. The last thing I want is spokes pulling through, and volcanoing the rim.
