Today we are proud to present Alex Platt’s The Finer Things section to you, the internet world. I re-watched this a couple times trying to come up with an appropriate caption for this, but all I could really arrive at is ” Well, Platt is out of his f-n mind.” Want proof? Watch this now.
Today we’re hyped to bring you the Mix Section from The Finer Things DVD which features the newest Brian Castillo footage known to man, our team riders Billy Perry & Cody Clark, and a slew of our friends & BMX media personell including but not limited to Elf, Jeff Z, Rob Dolecki, Jake Seeley, Biz, Rob Wise & many more. Enjoy!
DIG just put up their last gallery piece of Pool’s Gold with this last installment called ‘Minimal Mischief’, be sure to check it out here>>. Check out 1 and 2 of Pool’s Gold while you’re at it.
“One week later, I was back on a plane; looking back, this trip was all I could have hoped for, and a lot more. No, this wasn’t the secret kickoff of filming for Criminal Mischief 2; it was more along the lines of Minimal Mischief with some old friends, with a little trespassing involved, of course.” – DIG
Jason: This was a pool I had been by before, but someone was living in the house and it was sort of off-limits. Then I saw a photo of some dudes riding it, and it was on. It’s different; it’s more of a bank to Jersey barrier. You have more options than you normally would. It was fun. If I owned a house and I commissioned a pool, and they built me that, I’d be like, “What the fuck is this thing?”
Here’s my section from The Finer Things DVD. Its always a little awkward writing about yourself but I will say I’m definitely very, very proud of this section and I’m really happy to be able to contribute something new to the BMX community, not only with my section but with this DVD as a whole. If you like what you see, pick up a copy for your personal collection and support what were doing. Thanks for watching & I hope you enjoy! <3
As you may or may not know, Broc Raiford is an absolute powerhouse and is a big boy that needs forks that can take the abuse of all the gnarly sh*t he dishes out on a daily basis. He’s been testing his new Anchor forks throughout his The Finer Things part and as you can see through his section that they held up to some heavy bangers. This new RIDEbmx print ad is of Broc doing a upright hard truck while filming for his section. More info on the Anchor forks here>>. Click image to check out the full ad.
Today we proudly present Tate Roskelley’s mind blowingly creative & original The Finer Things DVD section to you, the internet world. Tate is hands down one of the most incredible bike riders, free thinkers, and a true artist practicing his unique brand of organic and forever-experimental BMX. We love Tate & we love this video section….so if this is your first time seeing this, we really hope you do too! Enjoy!
DIG just dropped part two of their Pool’s Gold video, and this is the one where the guys go heavy in pools around SoCal. Enns has a slew of good clips in here that you won’t wanna miss! Also check out part 1 if you missed it here>>
Today we are very excited to bring you Drew Hosselton’s The Finer Things DVD section for the first time online. This video wouldn’t be what it is without Drew’s immense Arizona spot knowledge and driven attitude towards making new things happen in BMX, not just for himself but for all his teammates as well. Filming for perhaps the longest of anyone involved in the project, all Drew’s hard work and dedication earned him this epic two song second to last section. This is creative spot oriented street riding at it’s best. Enjoy!
To be on the same list with absolute legends like Rick Moliterno, Chad DeGroot and Krt Schmidt is a huge award all on its own but to make the top 10 best freecoaster rider is quite an honor. Eric has been killing the freecoaster game for years and we’re always in awe of what he comes up with. Stoked to see our man get some recognition. Check out the rest of the list here>>
“Eric Bahlman has been running a freecoaster long before the trend fully set in, but it’s here recently that Eric has really been making a name for himself with some of the most ridiculous backwards combinations ever. If you were to crown the king of backwards manuals, Eric would take the title no questions asked.” – Vital BMX
Don’t forget tomorrow and Sunday that we’ll be stopping by Don’s Bicycles (Rialto) and Menifee Bicycles, respectively. Both shop stops start at 3:30 both days. So get there and come to ride, hang out, get free stuff, and have a good time with us, the hosting shops and Volume riders. Check the flyer for the rest of the stops at Epic BMX and East County BMX to follow.
