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.


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!





More dirt on the Mongoose 24″ prototype

28 04 2011

Back in February, you might remember the post we did about Moody riding the new Mongoose 24″ prototype.

Now that Mongoose is getting closer to production I can give you more of the scoop on the new 24.

Not-so-great spy photo of new 24" Mongoose

As far as “spy photos” go, this isn’t the best (it was shot with a wide angle lens and it’s a bit distorted) but it should give you a relatively good idea of what this whip is going to look like.


  • Top tube: 21.75″
  • Head Angle: 74.5 degrees
  • Seat Angle: 71 degrees
  • Bottom Bracket: 13.6″

Did I mention that it’s going to be offered as a complete bike with a full chromoly frame and fork?  No? Well it is. (Hallelujah!)

Other highlights:

  • Removable brake mounts
  • Chromoly 3-piece cranks
  • 8″ handlebars
  • Sealed BB
  • Sealed cassette hub
  • Pivotal seat
  • Odyssey grips and pedals.

To make up for the less-than-stellar spy shot, I’ll leave you with this, friend of Cruiser Revolution, Trent Brocker riding the Mongoose prototype at the recent Woodward Old School Reunion. Radness!
