Seth’s Bike Hacks shreds on a 24″ Redline

26 02 2020

I spotted this a while back as a suggested video on YouTube.

Seth Alvo, of Seth’s Bike Hacks fame, shredding on a  Redline Asset 24 on his Workbench Skatepark in his new (at the time) garage.

You might recall from previous posts that the geo of the Asset 24 is very close (essentially the same) as the ever-popular S&M ATF 24.

I’ve always wanted to see one of these completes in action and Seth did a great job of showing what the Asset 24 was capable of.

At the tail end of the video (starting at 7:02) Seth has a session on the new workbench skatepark and he proceeds to bust out a good amount of moves and jibs on the Redline. Heck, there’s even a disaster…shoutout to the mid school! (Or is that old school?)

He even makes repeated attempts on a 360 before landing one smooth. The Redline looked like it was none the worse for wear after the repeated attempts and bails.

The bike  also looked pretty much stock (save for the pedals which looked like blue composite pedals)…so that’s even more of a plus. I would have liked to see a full-blown test/review but this is a reasonably good substitute.

Check out the video for yourself of Seth putting the bike to the test (and just try to avoid going down the rabbit hole of checking out Seth’s videos….I always end up 3 or 4 deep when I click on one).





Austin, Texas is about to get RAD

11 02 2020

Austin, Texas is going to get a whole lot RAD-der over the next little while.

Bill Allen, who most BMXers know as Cru Jones, of RAD movie fame will be in town for an appearance at the Cult Classic Convention this weekend (Feb. 14-16)!

I suspect in addition to offering handshakes (or high fives) and obligatory selfies, he’ll probably also be selling and signing copies of his behind-the-scenes book on RAD.

Then….

And I can hardly believe this is true/happening:

In March, a remastered version of the movie RAD is going to get the big screen treatment as feature presentation at the SXSW festival!

So crazy.

So rad!

 





Shredding on the 29″ Dyno

3 02 2020

One of the coolest stories of 2019 was GT bringing out a 29″ Dyno tribute bike for freestyle legend Dave Voelker.

As a big Dave Voelker fan and also being big into Dyno’s back in the day, it was great to see Dave getting the recognition he deserved…as well as seeing one of my favorite old school bikes reborn as a cruiser.

Of course, the Dave Voelker promo video was awesome too!

Thankfully, a couple more videos have been released of the 29″ Dyno in action.

Like this one below of flatland legend Gabe Weed putting the big wheeled tribute bike (with some custom touches) through an absolute flatland shred session.

And more recently, none other than “The Lord” himself, Dave Voelker, busting out a big fakie wall ride like it’s a Meet in the Street contest in 1987 or something.

So much radness.
