Simply Awesome

I was looking through the pictures that Jeff Cox took at "The Come Up" DVD premiere and happened upon this one. I think this is the ultimate shot of Dennis as he knocks out two of his favorite things at once. Too bad there aren't any boobies in the shot. That would have been a hat-trick!

Vinyl - The Best Of Both Worlds DVD Premiere! Tonight!!

We're showing the Vinyl DVD tonight at about 8:00pm. Two of the riders in the flic will be on hand to sign autographs and shit. DVD's will be available for $20.00 cash money. Believe me, you will want this one for your collection. With the close proximity of Streets Of Madness, this will be a low key event. We won't have the little ramp or the height poles out but I'm sure some one will set up the block and a pallet to session if you like. Bring pizza if you like be nice. Behind BIKEFACTORY @ 8:00pm-ish. Contact us at if you have any questions.

3 Things. Electronical, Vinyl and Neat Bikes.

First, thanks to everyone for coming out to the Electronical premiere. The actual DVD will be released in about 3 weeks or so. We're also gonna show the Vinyl DVD on Sunday night at about 8:00pm. Contact us at if you have any questions.

I just got back from a trip to San Francisco, Portland and Minneapolis for some bike shows. The North American Handmade Bicycle Show in Portland showcases some of the countries best frame builders. Not all of them are BMX related but most of them do some amazing work, nonetheless. Here is a frame made by De Salvo for a customer who could never get an original SE Quadangle. Turns out a bully at his school had one and said if he ever got his own, he would get his ass beat. Wonder what the bully would say if he could see this one . . . This bike wasn't actually shown at the NAHBS this year, but at Interbike in Las Vegas last year. I think it fits in with the category though. This TA was made by Independent Fabrications to pay tribute to the original Skyway TA. It probably carries a similar story to the De Salvo Quad. I can't wait till Dennis gets his built up. Yeah, that's a Flask!

Here's a fixie that caught my eye and since there are a lot of fixies out right now, I decided to include it here. It was made by a company called Sycip and utilizes a disc brake on the non-drive side crank arm. The Fixie movement has garnered a lot of steam recently all over the country. I'm starting to wonder if for the most part it's just a fad . . . like rollerblading. On a different note, here's a bike that throws everything about fixies out the window. This is a 1946 Masi with an odd shifting contraption. Look close. This was at One On One in Minneapolis. An eclectic little bike shop/coffee bar/art gallery/bicycle graveyard in the warehouse district.

Come out to the parking lot of BIKEFACTORY this Thursday night, the 20th at 7pm (BYOB) for the Odyssey ELECTRONICAL Video Premiere/Showing. It won't be officially available for another three weeks! The man behind the video, Will Stroud is here in town with Mr. and Mrs. Morgan Wade, Dakota Roche, Zach Warden and the ever elusive unicorn. I know it's last minute, but hey... it's Hawaii time.

Another Northwest Trip?

It's Tuesday afternoon and I'm back in San Francisco, Calif. and hanging with my friend Wade "Dis Cook" Lance. Last week Friday, Wade, Orren and I packed into his 300hp WRX wagon and "flew" up to Portland for the handmade bike show. 10 hours, my ass! On our drive up, we got a bad case of food poisoning (thanks Denny's) and a cracked windshield. Other than that nothing but beautiful views and good times. I even heard a joke about buying cheap soda near Mt. Shasta. Most of you won't understand. We are still confused as to why it's illegal to pump your own gas in Oregon. Regardless, we met up with a pretty good group of guys with Hawaii ties and ended up at a bar called the Red Room on 82nd St. Mr. Wendell even came up from Belmont Shore in SoCal. My old band The Quintessentials were playing there with a few other bands and I eventually got called up on stage to play a few songs. We even had some broad come up to Les and I after the set and show us some of her finer assets if you know what I mean. I miss the rock 'n roll lifestyle. Pretty fun I must say. I'll post some of the pictures from the show later. I'm sure some of you will appreciate them. The bicycle show, I mean. I don't have any pics of the boobies. Scoots Baluts drove down from Tacoma to party with us on Saturday night and almost started a fight trying to cheat at pool. I LOVE THAT GUY! Tomorrow night, I'm off to Minneapolis to freeze off my cojones. Last I saw, it was -7. Sounds like fun.


I did get to see Ryan Barrett while we were in Portland. That kid makes me laugh.

Thanks For Coming Up!!

Thanks to everyone for coming out to The Come Up DVD Premiere. I think we all had a good time. So good, in fact, that Porsche hasn't turned on the lights in the parking lot since. Lil' Jon from Milwaukee won the high Bunnyhop contest at 40" with Brad coming in second at 38". We had four rounds of Foot Down with Richard G. taking the win. Jeff Cox and Dennis were on hand taking photos and I'll have them posted as soon as possible.

Just because we had this little bit of fun doesn't mean you should rest. Get your shit together for Streets Of Madness Pt. 3 'cause it's coming up. I'll have the full list of sponsors up soon. Holla if you have any questions.
