New Defgrip!

Welcome to a freshened up Defgrip.

It’s been a minute since the site has gotten a makeover, so we are happy to finally have a fresh new design for you guys. While this new version is not drastically different from the previous one, it is cleaner, simpler with a focus on the design and overall user experience in the photogalleries & interviews sections. Check the new Get Sylvester gallery for proof.

Furthermore, it was important to us that our main page not be dictated by advertising anymore, so we stripped it down to the bare bones to showcase the content, but created more space for the brands that have supported us over the years. Nice and clean. We launched the previous version of Defgrip in early 2007 and it was an honor to see our previous layout be “re-appropriated” a few times over the years by other sites, but the time has come to switch shit up.

So what’s up with Defgrip these days?

Defgrip’s lifespan has been interesting. It started out as a simple blog run by a few friends for fun, it gained popularity which led to advertisers, became more “business” like for a bit, and now we feel it’s getting back to being a simple blog run by a few friends for fun again (but on a bigger, more important scale). Defgrip has always been something we simply do on the side and because we love to. The site always had a slower pace than others, but if it gets extra slow (i.e. – dormant), it’s because work is keeping us busy and only leaves us wanting to suplex our computers at the end of the day. The re-blogging rat race is not a top priority for us.

We’re still here though and will continue to fill the niche we’ve created for ourselves. There won’t be a million posts a day, but we will still be bringing you cool original content, choice BMX nuggets, photography, music, art and be writing about whatever the hell we want.

Thanks to everyone who supports and visits the site.
