A 24″ Chase Hawk tire on the horizon?

28 01 2015

I’ve seen talk of this in a couple of places (the otxdesign instagram page and BMX Museum) but so far no official word.

Is a 24″ version of Odyssey’s Chase Hawk tire in the pipeline?

If the word on the street is to be believed, it looks like it’s going to happen. In the mean time, I guess we’ll have to sit tight until we hear about a release date.

Pretty stoked to see this added into the assortment of high-end tires available for new school 24s.

Riding in Ottawa is about to get Epic

23 01 2015

If there was ever a city in need of a good indoor bike park it would be Ottawa.  The capital of Canada, Ottawa is the  home of often brutally cold winters. Folks, it gets cold as balls in Ottawa.

Thankfully, some forward thinking folks have put a plan in place to deal with this. The Epic Indoor Bike Park is a 53,000 square foot facility that will feature pump tracks, advanced jumps, ramps and a bunch of other good stuff to keep a rider occupied.  Super-tech rider Steve Moxley is even helping out with design and hammer swinging…so you know someone is keeping an eye out for the details.

Epic Indoor Bike Park jump roomBased on all the sneak peeks popping up, this place looks like it is going to be a lot of fun.

I expect to see a very long lineup of folks trying to get in when it opens on its yet-to-announced opening day in February.

Until then, check out this promo video that was released earlier this week.

(For more background on the park, check out this recent article in Mountain Life magazine.)





First look: Sunday Model C3 frame

21 01 2015

We first spotted this frame back in September at Interbike amongst the other new stuff on display from Sunday.

At the time, this frame was being promoted as a full cro-mo version of the frame on the Model C complete, at a more affordable pricepoint  than the Wave-C frame.

Sunday Model C3This frame is exactly those things. Gone are the wave tubing and wishbone back end of the Wave-C but what remains is a frame that shares the same geo of that iconic frame but is much more accessible to the masses.

new sunday backendTrent Brocker has built one of these frames up and it looks pretty dialed!

Sunday Model C3 buildI think we’ll start seeing more of these frames built up very soon!

Big wheel session with pdog and krad

Peter “pdog” Ulbrich and Cale “krad” Schindler met up recently at the Fowler Skatepark with their big bikes (24 and 29″). Much shredding promptly ensued.

Flatland Flashback…TwoFourFlat Re:Cap

9 01 2015

They say that all good things must come to an end.

Well, it looks like TwoFourFlat 6 (which dropped in December) was the end in the impressive series of big wheel flatland edits from Joe Cicman and Danny Sarkin.

TwoFourFlat6 Joe CicmanHere’s a lookback at some of the highlights leading up to the final installment.

So much good stuff in here.

 





Back in the saddle

7 01 2015

It’s been a spell but I hope you have had a great holiday season and are ready to dive into 2015.

I just got back from a trip to Argentina…and while it wasn’t a biking-related trip (I only saw one person riding when we were in the capital) I was struck by how many great street setups/spots were in Buenos Aires.

I kept thinking, “If only I had my bike with me…”  So much shreddable terrain!

As it turns out a bunch of Nike-sponsored riders (Chad Kerley, Dennis Enarson, Garrett Reynolds, Nigel Sylvester and Kriss Kyle) hit BA earlier in 2014.

They had their bikes with them of course.

Check out this edit and get a taste of all the great street setups Buenos Aires has to offer.

Watch for a return to our regular CR programming in the next few days.
