New York Shop Stops

Brian | 09.1.15

With all the excitement from our SoCal shop stops we did last month, we thought we’d extend it a bit out into New York at two amazing shops, Vicious Cycle and Dah Shop.  Mike (Mastroni) was already going out that way to visit family, then headed to the Island to lock up filming with Billy Perry, and figured we might as well take Broc and DeMarcus out that way too.  We haven’t visited NY in a bit to do any shop stops and thought this trip would be a good time to get a couple in.  There will be a meet and greet as well as a ton of giveaways at both.  Hope to see you guys there! With this crew, you know it will be a good time.

Minimal Mischief

Brian | 08.28.15


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?”

The Finer Things: Mike Mastroni

Mastroni | 08.24.15

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

Broc’s New Anchor Fork Print Ad

Brian | 08.22.15

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. 

The Finer Things: Tate Roskelley

Mastroni | 08.20.15

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!

The Finer Things: Drew Hosselton.

Mastroni | 08.17.15

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!

Bahlman Makes Vital’s Top 10 List

Brian | 08.17.15

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
