The Lord has risen – video edit incoming

31 07 2019

Early this year we learned that Dyno was making a comeback as a 29er ….and not only that, said 29er was going to be a Dave Voelker signature model.

Hot damn, one of my favorite riders from bitd back in the limelight and this time…on big wheels.

And now, Dave’s back with a new edit….and it’s so good!

It starts off with some classic footage of Dave going BIG….it’s almost like a highlight real from his biggest BMX hits. From there it segues into some superfun big wheel shenanigans…complete with the classic Voelker footplant.

Check it out:

It’s good to see Lord Voelker back.

The Lord has risen….Praise the Lord!

Dyno makes a comeback as a 29er

9 04 2019

If you were on Instagram over the weekend you will have already seen it.

The classic Dyno has risen from its 80s ashes as a 29″ Dave Voelker signature model.

Debuted at the Spring Fling event in Florida, by none other than “The Lord” Dave Voelker himself, it hits all the right Dyno cues: the traditional Dyno forks with the distinctive bend at the end, along with Power Series cranks and the classic Dyno pretzel bars.

Word on the street is that these will be dropping some time in June.

I have also heard that depending on how sales go, a 26″ may follow, and there is even a slim chance that if the 29″ and the 26″ (that is just a pipe dream right now) do well…a 24″ may follow.

All I can say to that is….I hope they sell like hot cakes….cuz I would absolutely love one of these in 24″!

Still dig this 29″ though…partly because I loved Dynos back in the day and partly because Dave Voelker is so bad ass.

Good to see both Dyno and Dave back…and looking so good.

 





90s-era BMX shirts at Urban Outfitters

14 01 2019

Have 90s-era BMX t-shirts finally crossed the rubicon into hipster fashion?

Signs are pointing to yes.

Reports are coming out saying that Urban Outfitters stores are now stocking shirts from GT, Dyno, Mongoose and Schwinn.

I first spotted them on Brian Tunney’s Instagram:

Apparently they are put out by a company called ourlegendsauthentic.

Will they be hit with hipster millennials who were kids when these brands/logos were big?

Tough to say.

For myself, I used to sweat some of the earlier Dyno designs…the fish shoes, tragically hip shirt, etc.

 


If those designs start showing up…well, this aging Gen-Xer might be elbowing those hipsterĀ millennials out of the way for some new shirts.
