Sixteen Candles

22 03 2017

I got to celebrate another spin around the sun this past weekend.

Yes, it was my birthday.

And while there were more than sixteen candles on the cake, I still managed to have some fun in my now rapidly advancing years.

It was an action-packed weekend filled with indie wrestling, the Trainspotting sequel, a session at Joyride 150 and a Raptors/Pacers basketball game.

The icing on the proverbial cake, however, was seeing a Facebook picture of Trent Brocker sporting a Cruiser Revolution t-shirt atop the MegaRamp at Woodward West.

(Trent was attending the Old School BMX Reunion and getting a few laps in.)

Trent even got a little dirt on it to break it in.

Nice!

As you can see, the space-age fabric (100% cotton) the shirt can take some abuse and is (like Trent) no worse for wear.

Finally, I was hoping to wrap up this meandering post with riding shots but alas I was remiss in pulling out my phone while riding at Joyride.

Thankfully, Bunky Dunn also recently celebrated a birthday and commemorated the day by flinging himself down a couple rails.

Please enjoy in lieu of my absent riding photos.

Cheers…and go see Trainspotting 2 if you haven’t seen it…good flick!

Tabletop/Toboggan Tuesday

14 03 2017

Roma Abramov continues to put out great content.

So whether you subscribe to the #tabletoptuesday or #twofourtuesday hashtag he’s got you covered.

Tabletops?

He’s got ’em.

I’m particularly partial to this one.

Classic.

Heck, given the snow walloping the US and Canadian Northeast today…maybe we should throw in another hashtag…how ’bout #toboggantuesday?

Yeah, Roma’s got that covered too.

 





Just another Wedge Ramp Wednesday

15 02 2017

Looks like Steev Inge is flirting with Dizzaster here.

Granted, it’s hard not to conjure up the spirit of Dizz Hicks when busting out a wedge ramp move.

It’s almost like a spiritual thing.

“Where one or more of thee are gathered by yon holy wedge ramp, Dizz will be among you also”

 

Bonus info: Steev posted this 43 weeks ago…43!





Let it fly Friday

Stasyan.b lets it fly, airing out of a pool.

Radness.

Forecast calls for radness

Roma Abramov (@romaonbmx) found a good way to cope with the rain.

A sweet indoor ramp set up…perfect for lip tricks, pocket airs and other goodness.

I’m digging it.

Check out romanonbmx rips for more on this guy.

I was checking out the #cruiserrevolution hashtag on Instagram earlier this week and was stoked to find some awesome clips from a Russian rider (living in Spain) named Roma Abramov (@romaonbmx).

He’s rocking one of those rare Vapor Blue Sunday Wave-Cs…and he knows his way around a skatepark.

Actually, he rips!

…and whips! (Sorry, couldn’t help myself)

Hope to see more from this guy in the future….





2017 WTP Atlas gets some Wow factor

5 09 2016

The 2017 We The People (WTP) Atlas is getting a little added “Wow factor” this model year with a new candy apple red paint job.

Topped off with chrome and polished parts from WTP and SaltPlus, this 24″ is a real looker.

2017 wethepeople atlas-red

It’s a bit reminiscent, in colorway terms, of the 2011 Avenger.

Of course The Avenger,  as you might recall from last year’s Interbike coverage, has now morphed into a 26″ retro-style cruiser in the WTP lineup.

But I digress…

The Atlas, besides its eye-catching new candy apple colorway, hasn’t changed much in the geo/specs department since the previous model year.

But in the case of the Atlas, there isn’t much need to.

It sports a full cromo frame, fork and handlebar.

The specs are also on point:

  • Head tube: 74 degrees
  • Seat tube angle: 72 degrees
  • Top tube length: 22″
  • Chain stay: 14.6″
  • BB height: 12.7″
  • Stand over height: 9.7″

The roomy 22″ top tube, high-but-not-too-high bb, and short-ish chain-stays suggest this might be just the ticket if you’re looking for a more trails-oriented 24 (the Kenda “Small Block 8” tires are also another hint in this direction).

It’s hard to go wrong with this bike…and with its eye-catching new colorway, it’s kinda hard to resist.
