Kink BMX

Maybe you never rode a 20",
if so, I'm sorry.

That feeling of being a little kid launching off of
sketchy homemade jumps,
THAT'S the feeling alot of us are still chasing.

So I get to help set up when the Kink team
hits the local shop in a couple of weeks.
What's cool about it?
It's been a couple years since I've built ramps,
and just as long since I've ridden a 20".
But there's the access I hope to get the following day,
with camera in hand.
And the satisfaction,
IF they like what we can come up with in a day.

I can still recall vividly,
the first bmx/freestyle demo I went to....
actually still have a couple pics scanned from it.

Project Three

NS Traffic dirt jumper.
The perfect solution for a big fat guy
riding with the kids around the neighborhood.
And wasting time at the skatepark.

We'll see how this goes...

Colony HC

A few pictures from last night's show:

If hardcore is your choice,
COLONY will be out on the road in May,
eastcoast to westcoast.

Kink Tour!

Did you forget how you started riding?
Ever catch a demo at the local shop?

I'm still psyched to catch this!

Struggles & Temptation:

The online mail order beast.
The low low prices,
and everything your local shop
doesn't have.

But you can't borrow their tools.
There is no "service" to speak of.
They don't know you,
and your dedication
as a loyal customer.... means nothing.

The next time you have a last minute
repair, need to borrow an odd tool, or
get a deal on some swapped out parts.

You vote with your dollar!
Who stays and who goes.

Playing with fire

With the warming weather,
and the higher gas prices,
the "fire season" for altercations is almost upon us.

I'm still on the fence about Critical Mass.
The principle and message, yes.
The people that sometimes show up,
not who I would vote to represent me,
or cycling.

But I'm sure others probably think the same about me.
