David orchestrated a harmonious blend of large set-ups as well as spot usage pieces for this perfectly balanced set. Over the last few years he has perfected his craft.

Animal Bikes: Chris Carter

Ah, a breathe of toxic pollution after being in the Adirondack Mountains for the last month. Nothing beats the harshness of the first inhale of the Jersey City gases after being surrounded by pure filtered air.

R.I.P. Dave Mirra

R.I.P. to Dave Mirra.

The news of Dave’s passing definitely rocked the world the other day. If you’re a rider who grew up watching Dave, the news is almost unbelievable. Since his passing there has been an overwhelming output of respect and love on social media/online from the people, brands and industry folk which has been amazing to see. Even those outside of BMX have been showing love.

Archived : Alex Duleba

Alex_Duleba Roof-wallride2_Burkhart

Alex loves to find weird rooftop set ups. I met up with him and Anthony Loconte a few months back while they filmed a few clips on a Sunday evening. Here he found a rooftop wallride set up to roof drop afterward. Alex is probably one of my favorite dudes to watch shred in the Chicago scene. He just does his own thing and it’s so much fun to watch as well as being terrifying at the same time.

The Signs of Austin

the signs of austin, texas

I’ve lived in Austin, and I know a lot of you are from there or have at least visited (especially if you ride bikes). One thing I noticed on my first visit was all the great signage. Whether it’s hand painted or big neon, there is cool signage all over town.

I just came across “The Signs of Austin” site, which has illustrations of recognizable signs by Reagan Ray and some facts about each one. It’s pretty rad, go HERE to check it out.
