I think we’ve all been there before where we need to set the bike down for a few minutes to run into the gas station or Taco Bell to get some drinks and food and didn’t have a lock, just hoping you won’t come out and have your bike missing. It doesn’t take more than a couple of seconds for somebody to grab your bike and take off before you realize that your pride and joy just got jacked. I mean, let’s be real… Bikes are expensive and it’s never a bad idea to invest in something that’s going to keep it from being damaged or stolen. Just like you put a hub guard on to keep you from wrecking your hub when you grind, tossing a lock on your bike could be the difference between being robbed or having somebody think twice before they try.
The guys at Subrosa have been working on their war on theft for a little while now, but we have never really taken that in-depth of a look at what they have to offer in the ant-theft department. We recently got our hands on their Combat and Warhead locks and figured it would be a good time to talk a little bit about just what makes these guys so important. Let’s do this!
The level of riding coming from the kids now days is absolutely insane… This edit of Zenen Saneshige is so crazy. Although he’s just a little guy, he’s charging man sized rails and knows how to get down on the streets like the old guys. The future is bright and I hope we see a hell of a lot more of this kid.

The Daily Grind crew have been going hard stacking clips for their new DVD project for a while now. They had a bunch of footage of Scott Steele that won’t be making it into his section, so they put this video together to show you how much work Scott is putting in! There’s a ton of great riding in this and a whole lotta ass kicking. Cannot wait to see how good the clips going to the DVD are!
It’s crazy that this footage has been sitting on Vimeo, locked up, for the past year. Fernando Gomarin Olaiz decided it was finally time for this footage of Federal‘s Antony Perrin, along with a few clips of Dan Lacey and Bruno Hoffmann, putting in work on the streets of Barcelona! Hit play because you already know this is golden!

This is awesome. The guys at Transition BMX Shop up in Edmonton, Canada got their hands on a one off, accidentally painted camo 20.75″ BTM frame from S&M Bikes. Instead of taking advantage of this rare occasion for their own profit, they have decided to auction it off for a good cause and donate everything to the Wounded Warriors of Canada. The auction will start September 1st on Ebay at $1 and run for 7 days. We will be dropping a link Monday as soon as it goes live, so make sure you keep an eye out for this!
