Bobby Parker’s Burly Park session

5 08 2014

Bobby Park just dropped this video of a Burly Park session in Burlington, Iowa.

Entitled Dramatical Model C the video offers surprisingly little drama…instead, just clips of straight-up shredding.

I have no problem with that.

Enjoy.

 





#TwoFourTuesday: Iowa edition

27 05 2014

Bobby Parker has been busy lately: adding a future BMXer to the family, moving from Texas to Iowa and now, reppin’ the Tree Bicycle Company.

Lots of changes.

What hasn’t changed is his ability to shred.

Here’s Bobby showing the Iowa City skatepark who’s the #TwoFourTuesday Boss.

Radness.

Another convert to #TwoFourTuesday

25 02 2014

Bobby Parker’s promotion of the hashtag #TwoFourTuesday is starting to gain some momentum, at least among his colleagues over at Full Factory distribution.

Old Tall Mike puts out a nifty BMX blog called regressionprocess, when he’s not out riding or punching the clock over at Full Factory distribution. Recently, Mike wrote a post  about #TwoFourTuesday, his own personal ride and his “conversion” to the 24″ way of life.

Old Tall Mike wavecAccording to Old Tall Mike:

Two-four. Twenty-four. Deuce-quattro. I’m sold. It didn’t take much, really. A few laps around, a little flow and jib sesh as the kids (no-one) say. I have my Flat bike…I have my Street Bike…And I have my Bike.

This is really the one for me. Hands down, the bike that feels like I belong on it.

Amen to that.

He goes on to say:

…the feel is that of younger days…On a bike that fit like it was built for me, I can ride it all day every day and not feel beaten by it. I feel like learning tricks is fresh again.

His experience echoes what I have heard from a lot of people that have started to ride new school 24s…that you feel like a kid again, it’s feels fresh and you get stoked on riding all over again. For more on Old Tall Mike and his thoughts on rolling 24, check out his post on #TwoFourTuesday





Hashtag #twofourtuesday

28 01 2014

I’m not sure if Bobby Parker started the hashtag #twofourtuesday but he has certainly been the most avid user of it.

Reppin’ the 24 like nobody’s business, Bobby has been spreading the word with #twofourtuesday and his own brand of big wheel ramping for some time now.

Today is no exception. Check out this shot of BP shredding the project loop ramp at Fun Fest 7. Radabonzical!

You do us proud Bobby. Respect.

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!

9 10 2013

(Note: headline best read aloud with a monster truck rally announcer voice.)

The guys over at Sunday Bikes have been sharing a bunch of pictures over the past few days of their flagship 24″ bike, the Model-C, popping up in cool places and situations.

First off was a pic of Bunky Dunn’s Model-C chilling at the ACL festival in Austin, Texas.  Bunky helps set up music festivals but he always keeps his Model-C close at hand so he can get some shredding in. (Photo: Paulo Joaquim)

Another picture that surfaced was pucksnotdead  shredding some trails on his Model C (Photo: triblaze /mikeyaskew13)

Then an early morning ramp session at House Park in Austin yielded these shots.

Model -Cs all-around.

24 07 2013

Bobby Parker can shred pretty much anything…dirt, street, park, whatever…on both 20 and 24″ bikes.

Of course, when pics get posted of him shredding on his 24″ Wave-C…they immediately get our attention.

Nosepick of the Canadian variety?

Radness.

Endless summer?

31 08 2012

The end of summer is always bittersweet..when you’re young it means going back to school.  When you’re older, it means everybody’s back from their summer holidays and things are going to start getting busy at work.

It’ll bum you out if you let it.

So it’s important to try and keep that care-free summertime feeling going as much as you can.

Steal an hour here and there to ride.

Make plans for a biking trip.

Figure out where there’s an indoor place to ride before the weather gets cold.

Stay tight with your riding buddies.

And before you do all that…pack as much fun into this Labour Day weekend as you can.

(Maybe launch yourself off a lake jump…just like Bobby Parker did recently on Brandon Goodman’s 24″  in Austin.)

Have a good weekend everybody!





Bobby Parker’s Colorado trip highlights

12 08 2011

Bobby Parker and the Sunday crew recently made  a trip up to Colorado  to hit the plethora of concrete parks available in the state. While there, they managed to hill bomb Mt. Evans (which is supposed to feature the highest paved road in North America) and shoot some great footage.

Andrew Brady was able to capture some of the radness that went down with his camera and Bobby was cool enough to send some of the photos along. He also included a writeup for each one to give you a look into what went on “behind the scenes” for each photo.

So without further ado, here’s some highlights from Bobby Parker’s Colorado trip in his own words:

One-footed table at Boulder skatepark.  This place is wild!  Big hips everywhere that went all ways and angles.  For some reason I started getting the feel for opposite tables on my Model C a while ago on some long sessions at the Walnut Creek Pump Track….For me it seems like opposite carves/airs and opposite tables work better on the 24″.  It is debatable on what specifically makes these things happen…something else that’s awesome that cruisers bring to the table (oh yeah….pun intended).  The hip at the Boulder park just started feeling really good that way and I had never really toyed with one-footed tables before so I let a few fly. – Bobby

No hander at Valmont Bike Park. Lets just say I still have a reminder of Valmont on me right now…in the form of road rash and a sprained ankle.  We rolled into the parking lot about 30 minutes before it was too dark to ride but still managed to ride for about 45….I was trying to get in as many laps as I could so when I saw a few of the Sunday guys take some cranks into the XL line I jumped right behind.

Next thing I know my tire doesn’t quite make it to the end of the log ride and I get sent. A little bit of blood never hurt anyone, I guess.

As I go back to the van to straighten out my bars (and dust myself off) Andrew went to go set up his flashes on the last jump to take a picture of one of the Sunday guys.  The team guy ends up calling it quits on account of it starting to get dark.  The mosquitos were the size of battleships out there and I knew Brady was being feasted upon.  I told him I would try something for his efforts of setting up all of his flash stands.  This is what we came up with.  – Bobby

Sounds like an awesome trip. In his email, Bobby said there was so many awesome places to ride that they didn’t even put a dent in all the skateparks Denver had to offer. Looks like Colorado is going to be getting a lot more visitors in the near future if people start getting wind of what’s available there.





Who’s that at Walnut Creek?

27 01 2011

Bobby Parker knows I love a good tabletop photo.

That’s why I was so stoked to see this in my in-box the other day.

While he may be partially hidden behind the tree leaves, nothing obscures the radness of the table.
