Devour has turned into one of my favorite places to waste time… If you haven’t checked it out, it’s basically just a random collection of dope/funny/crazy videos. For some reason, it took me about five times of visiting the site to actually click on this video, but this Slo-mo MotoGP video is CRAZY. The video was put together by Red Bull and it features MotoGP champion Casey Stoner. All you need to do is look at the screen shot above and think 1000 frames per second. Watch Now.
Kink just launched a flipbook with their complete line of 2012 bikes. All of the bikes look great and you should definitely check them out. On a related note, we are excited to have Kink as the newest advertisers on our site (look for their ad soon). Huge thanks to Kink and all of our other advertisers who support Defgrip and everything we do. If it wasn’t for our advertisers the site wouldn’t be what it is today. Thanks guys!!
The guys over at Freeman Transport, the very stylish hand-built collapsible bikes, have updated with a new websites. Along with everything you’d expect from a site as well as an online store, they have a new “troops” section with a very impressive list of people who will be blogging on their site.
Everyone’s favorite image blog Yimmys Yayo is helping put together a photography show for the Sydney Bicycle Film Festival. They are looking for submissions, so if you have any photos you’d like to see in the show and they somehow relate to bikes, send em in!

“Rad Rides: The Best of BMX (working title) looks to explore the world of BMX through photographs of bikes and Q&As with their owners. Some of the bikes are knackered, well worn by owners that have been riding for years. Others are beautiful, sculptural works of art, built but never ridden as a keepsake. Why are these bikes so sacred to their owners? What do these BMX riders do for a living? Where do they ride their bikes? What is it about the BMX that appeals to them? Is their bike a classic production bike or is it a custom build?”
They have an open call for entries going on until October 2009, so if you have a bike you’d like to submit, click here to download the call for entries PDF. To get an idea of what the book will be like, check out a few images from Art & Sole after the jump.
