A few notables popped up over the weekend…things not big enough for a full-blown post but items definitely worth taking note of…

First off…Tribute Bikes released a picture of their new prototype cruiser all built up.

Tribute prototype v2 built upLooks pretty sweet!

I’m so looking forward to seeing the final version of this bad boy.

The next item…not exactly new (it’s from January originally) but new to me at least…is an article on RedBull.com.

It popped up in my Facebook feed over the weekend and it seems like the perfect thing to peruse in advance of the spring digging season: How to build your own backyard pumptrack.

With some deece pics from legendary BMX phototog, Jared Souney, it’s well worth your attention.

Have a gander at that article, re-read the CR post, A primer on how to build a pumptrack and you’ll be tearing up the backyard garden and installing berms and rollers in no time.

Closer to Cruiser Revolution HQ…an announcement came out over the weekend that a warehouse in west Toronto is going to be converted into a “House of Vans” from March 16 to April 2.

The space will feature a skatepark, art gallery and musical performances (Dinosaur Jr. is said to be one). No word on whether or not bikes are allowed but pretty cool news in any event. I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to score some cool kicks there too.

Finally, we’re less than a week out from the Toronto Bicycle Show.

Which means the best part of the annual bike show  is also happening…the X-Jam.

It’s always a raucous affair. A crowd full of crazy Canadians with cabin fever and an international cast of riders going off.

I’m looking forward to catching up with old friends and checking out some awesome riding.

I’m also looking forward to seeing Drew B. dropping in from the ceiling again.
