Sunday – UK 2014 Shop Stops

Just when you thought you saw it all in the Sunday Bikes UK 2014 Video, the guys at Sunday Bikes drop 6 more minutes of pure GOLD from the shop stops and park sessions they got in during the trip! This is one video you will want to hit play on!

You may have seen our UK tour video a few weeks ago. Well, when Gary Young, Chris Childs, and Mark Burnett weren’t out riding street in the rain they were visiting four rad UK shops – Foundation BMX, Broadribb Cycles, Waller BMX, and The BMX Box – and riding with all the awesome locals we met out there. There was too much good footage from the shop stops not to make another video, so here you go!” – Walter Pieringer

Cult – Timmy Theus “Small Talk”

Ride BMX just dropped Timmy Theus’ amazing section from the Cult “Small Talk” DVD! Timmy has a one of a kind style that makes freecoaster riding look soooo good. Plus, he isn’t scared to absolutely SEND IT. This section is proof of that. Must see for sure!

“The classification between amateur and professional in BMX has been discussed and debated, but never clearly defined. While the lines are still a little blurry, if we can agree that a professional includes a paycheck and a certain level of experience and skill, then we’re halfway there. So what is an am? Does BMX even need ams? Cult thinks so, and they helped set the precedent for an established am class in BMX with the release of Small Talk, their am-based video that gave Steven Mack, Josh Alderete, Iz Pulido, and Andrew Castaneda the center stage usually reserved for the pro riders.

Timmy Theus
Timmy’s interaction with the video was a little different then the rest of the squad. He had filmed most of his part with Andrew Brady and kind of had a headstart on the rest of the dudes. In the past few months of filming I got to know him better and learned that he’s his own dude with a carefree attitude. In any situation he’s laughing and keeping it positive, while also filming some of the biggest clips of the video.
” – Cult

Review: “Holy Fit”

IMG_1228_600x

In this day and age, thanks to the advancement of technology we are constantly flooded with new videos from around the world all day, every day. The concept of a web video has a lot of different meanings and obviously a lot of quality differences between total shit and “why isn’t this on DVD?”… Every year, we see fewer and fewer DVD’s released due to many factors, most of which come down to money and the reach a video has as a hard copy versus being released online. Despite the cost effectiveness and the simplicity of releasing a video online, there is still a clear reason why DVD’s are being produced, and that’s because the quality is far beyond something that deserves being watched for a few days before it is quickly buried and forgotten in fast moving river of online content.
We have been hearing about Fit Bike Co.‘s 4th DVD release, “Holy Fit”, for quite a while now and we were excited for a lot of reasons about the video being released. Once we saw the final product, it was clear that this video wasn’t just another video project that costs had to be cut to make happen. Let’s talk about this for a little bit…

Photogallery: 2014 TRA Double Cross

Starting gate-0364_600x
All photos by Eric Silver

This past weekend, the Trail Riders of America hosted the Double Cross contest out in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania where they invited out 26 riders to take part in the day filled with racing, tricks and good times. The concept was simple, put two riders head to head on a hybrid track that’s not only built for speed, but for tricks as well and see who can make it to the finish line first. We had our friend Eric Silver out at the event to shoot some photos and he came through with a ton of great shots featuring the likes of Chris Doyle, Van Homan, Brandon Dosch, Scotty Cranmer, Aaron Ross and many more that you can check out in our new photogallery! Check it!

Insight: Etnies – Chase Hawk Signature Marana Shoes

IMG_9995_600x

There’s no denying the success that Chase Hawk has found in BMX over all of his years of style that he has graced us with. This year in particular seems to be one that has been more than amazing than previous years with some unexpected changes to his sponsor line up, taking home a gold medal at the X-Games, having a day named after him in Austin, Texas, having a new version of his signature frame from Cult released and even more recently, his own signature colorway on the Marana shoe from Etnies. There have been a lot of good things happening for him and it’s safe to say it’s every bit well deserved.
A few weeks back, we got our hands on a pair of those signature shoes we just mentioned and figured it would be more than a good time to take a more in-depth look at just what makes the shoe special and give some insight into what we have thought about them so far! So, here we have… Our latest Insight! Let’s do this!
