Jordan Waters caught himself a bit of a break from the rain over in the U.K and managed to film this quick new edit from a chill park session for Wethepeople! Check it!
Here’s another dialed section from the “LFS” video! Check out some heavy grind action from Mike Kleisseler who puts proper use to all 4 of his pegs. That first clip of him ripping the front end of his bike off is nuts! Enjoy!

Word about Ten Pack Distribution shutting its doors surfaced the other day, but I was waiting on an official word before saying anything since I tend to get in trouble for speculating on the economy of BMX…. Below is an official press-release from the guys about the news. There is also a thread up on Bikeguide with some interesting insight on the news. Definitely not good news by any means, but I did predict the industry would see something like this in my BMX Economics posts a few months back.
“By now everyone has heard the news but we wanted to release an official statement here on the site…
“To our valued customers,
Over the last year, we have seen a drop in sales and profitability. This has led to a lot of discussion regarding where to go with Ten Pack in the future. As you know, it is hard to compete against the pricing in the US since most of the brands have their own distribution there which means that they sell to shops at a much lower price than we can and leads to a lot of cross border shopping. This has led us to decide to downsize our distribution and just focus on MacNeil Bikes, which is our own brand . We have started work on MacNeil complete bikes for 2015 and will continue to produce all of the great frames and parts that we currently offer. This will allow us to offer the MacNeil brand at a very competitive price.
For this year, we will sell through the inventory that we currently have but will not be bringing in any more so get it while you can.
Thanks for your continued support.”
It’s all been a pretty wild ride, big thanks to all of the shops, our team riders, friends, the brands and anyone else who helped make things so great. For the sake of nostalgia, sit back and watch a bunch of videos from our past summer shop tours and more over on our Vimeo page at the link below. Onward and upward.
“How times have changed… believe it or not, at one point in time, simply doing a barspin in any capacity was one of the most cutting-edge things you could do on a BMX bike. But by today’s insane level of riding, barspins are considered basic, and unless you’re throwing the “Bs” over a giant gap, a single barspin is hardly even a trick anymore, and instead has become an ingredient in more complicated technical trick recipes. We enlisted Fit’s newest member to their pro ranks, Dan Conway, to help explain to you how to make your handlebars spin 360 degrees and then catch them again before landing.“
Here’s a awesome new mix edit that Anthony Sanchez posted up featuring a ton of the Austin, Texas locals putting in some time on their local spots and House Park! Definitely a good vibe to this one, so take a peek!
Get to know what got Jason Enns hooked on BMX in this fresh round of Rare Air!
“BMX legend Jason Enns traces his roots back to Manitoba, Canada when he summoned the balls to send it over the big doubles, and subsequently became a street rider between stints with ninja magazines and wrestling magazines BMX Plus was the one that got him hooked for life.” – Crooked World
