On my mini-bike

When I was 12 or so my friend Cary and I used to take mini-bmx bikes to church and stunt them on our Bibles during the sermon. Cherry Picker, Surfer, boomerangs were hard. This takes me way back.

Little Help...

So I've been putting the bottom bracket on the new frame and I'm having problems. The spindle is too long. The kit came with a crap ton of spacers. I put them on next to the crank arms. Am I doing this right?
Crap the what....

Getting out tonight @ 7. Meeting up in front of Gallery Lofts. Call me if you want to get the lead out.

I've let dozens of good videos slip thru the cracks these last couple weeks. There's so much coming up out there. Here's a goodie w/ Hfweido, LaMarch and Prolly to make it up to you.

I don't post too much from these guys. Mostly because of Jealousy. There's a broken record tailwhip attempt sequence that's really good and a rock walk kinda skid around deal that's also pretty legitimized.

It's how McGuyver did it, It's how the A Team did it, It's how I do it and it's worked pretty well so far.

Lastly and leastly, this will be my new post Christmas whip. I know a chrome fork and carbon seatpost make for an odd couple but you gotta play the hand you're dealt.

Rode w/ Aaron and Seth from Boston today. It was Slipperier when wet than New Jersey but fun was had none the less.

Stay what you gwar!

So I've been watching allgood for a while. He's really young and progressing incredibly fast. Haven't heard Tim Kasher's voice in a long time.

Tonight's going to suck...

So things have been slow over here. Kinda like me in an alleycat. When we pass 5k hits on the site be ready for a meggapost! Heck Mark might even put up a new header and post an update.

Roll the credits.

I'm still kinda floating after the fun that was had yesterday. There's a lot more people than Mark and I that made everything happen and there's a lot of thanks in order.

Let's start off w/ the video. Finished by the ghost of velo in record time.
Downtown Hoedown from Velo Ghosts on Vimeo.


Track Stand - Rocky
Quick Stop - Fred
Impromptu sprints - Alan
Foot Down - ?
long skids - Aaron
Trick Skids - Me/Todd (Huntsville)
Polo - Pretty much the team w/ the most Huntsville guys
Kicker Jam - Brandon (Huntsville)
Flatland Jam - Dustin (Huntsville)
U Lock Pick up - Dustin (Huntsville)
Gnarliest wipe out - Matt Gregg

Thanks to...

Peter/Faith, I was pretty shocked when Mark told me how you were behind us. The shoes were a great prize and nothing could have been more appropriate.

, The work you two did on the bag was some of the best I have ever seen. I know that you guys spent a lot of hours getting that thing to look as perfect as it did. It's in good well appreciating hands. Terry your filming editing is getting better and better. Thanks for putting the time in to documenting everything.

, Thanks for the three nickle bag hook up. Those beans will be pressed into highly regulated traffic MASHing.

Great of you guys to throw in a great prize for us. Alan Farton is going to love sticking his nose in the latest issues of Urban Velo.

Your crew really shined. Taking home the best two prizes we had! We couldn't have played an ounce of polo w/o you bringing out the sets. I'm going to wear the Track-O-Bama shirt to the polls in the morning and we'll see what happens. The lights were a plus. You guys make great judges and even better riders. Come back soon Vic and let me pedal that Makino build around. It was great meeting you guys.

Urban Standard
I think that I'm going to let my loyalty speak for itself. Tom & Eric, I'll see you Saturday for breakfast, lunch & dinner if I miss seeing you Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday morning. You guys have done a great thing and are a gleaming example of how to do "downtown" correctly. Keep it up Poland!

Aaron/Lane Woodworking
Aaron, you built a heck of a ramp. Sorry I wasn't there to build it with you. I know you had a heck of a week. Congrats on the long skid and thanks for getting my feet wet with this craziness!

Lastly I have to say how horrible I feel about the insane spill Matt took during long skids. He's got a broken arm, 2 monster raspberries and went into the thing with a near 2nd degree burn from a grease fire. Feel better soon Matt! You got some tricks up your sleeve that this town needs to see.

Pictures of the event are here and here. Thanks Alan, Elisa & Jennifer for those.

Nice riding video here.

riding in sac from meadowandrain on Vimeo.

Here's shots of the Fixed Gear London Vans project bike. I'm not certain on the details of Vans involvement here but the bike has great stuff going on. SuperTED and a guy named Andy had their hands in the project. Nice straight no rake fork, Charge saddle, Profile hubs (Terrence), Thomson stem and seat-post. On a partially related side note, I put my eyes on Faith's fixed Vans. They're different than the ones I have as there is less padding and the entire shoe is ripstop. There's a reflective band around shoe opening and they're all blacked out. From what Mark Leo's ghost told me they're classics and mine are Era's? I'll never understand the Van's nomenclature but they're dope. There's 4-5 pairs left and I was told special orders can be made. The more we support local stores that bring in fixed specific products the more there will be. Get out and buy ems!

Last night was a great time. Thanks Clay for organizing it and making the Flava of Bike medallion. Keep your eyes on Brocycle for the results cause I'm not going to spoil nuthin.

P and S, we just broke 3000 hits since we set up the counter. That's prolly not that many in comparison to other blogs but Woo Hoo regardless.

Does this guy do any tricks outside of this park? I've seen him ride up a tree. Gap a sidewalk and now this all right there...
There'd be so much to think about w/ this. Crank position, hop height, catching the bars.

One trick 10 times...

a single gear in a single day from SHAWN REMY on Vimeo.

Is Brown Santa coming to town or what?

There's so much new gear available as of today. Take a look at some of the new goodies.

More Era's. Faith now has one of the fixed Vans but I'm not certain what one... Could be the black colorway in this batch.

Cadence Era 5

Here's got to be the best of the findings. It's a one off Cadence jacket w/ windproof chest and reflective details. Already sold so tisk tisk on that one.

Gim Me too pur I neeet too pur.

Dave's Quality TEAM (meat) has started selling Vans Fixed Gear Era's. Get yours sliced deli thin. Setting foot in DQM is on my Bucket List. Just behind kicking Ashton Kutcher in the marbles and right before Skydiving w/ Jack Nicholson.

Now there's something about these I might have seen before but I can't put my finger on it...

Product test.

The prize tires given out at Connect 4 (thanks Jonathan) were the Soma Everwear. Here's a nice test that Alan mentioned from Cog Magazine. Too bad they didn't test the local's favorite Continental Gatorskin. The $40 Everware tested well w/ 160+ skids. If you're like me and can't or won't swing $30 for 4 magazines then you probably haven't seen this.

But then again, no one skids anymore anyways. And that's just sad...

Freeman's aren't free... man?

So Freeman Transport launched their site today. Go take a look at what they've got going on. There's something amazing about fitting a bicycle into a 26" x 26" x 10" suitcase. Not this amazing tho...
