DeMarcus’ bike goes through some major shit day to day, he not only uses it daily for transpiration around SD but he also rides the hell out of it at all the parks and on street. He just upgraded his whole rig with all the new Volume goods (VLM stem and Vader tires) as well as his new Bermuda V2 signature flat olive frame. Check out his whole kit after the jump as well as the full run down on what he rides.  more

We’re so stoked that our man, Broc Raiford got himself second in the Vital Game of Bike that went on this last Saturday.  The lineup was absolutely absurd, and you know it’s tough as shit to get that top 3 spot. Brandon Means took some rad shots all day long and Vital just put up the gallery from all his photos.  Check it out HERE and check out my top picks below of Broc, Josh and DeMarcus. Video dropping soon too… more

Jason Enns La To Portland… and back

Brian | 10.3.14

enns la to portland

In the early 2000′s the LA to Portland or LA to Vancouver and any variation of either was the most common road trip we seemed to take.  I havent been on that route in well over 5 years now, so when I got the call to work the Dew Tour stop in Portland I jumped at the chance.  And choosing to drive instead of flying. It was the perfect opportunity to do one of my favorite drives again and revisit some old spots and parks. I called Rooftop to see if he was down, and from there the trip was on. With a real loose plan and the only thing set in stone being that Saturday in Portland for Dew Tour street we set off. With no video camera in the car and no worry about a clip count, the only goal was fun. Being up and down Interstate 5 countless times, this was the first time I would do the drive down the Oregon and California coast which is truly amazing. Here are a few photos from some of the random stops and finds along the way. – JASON ENNS  Click to open the gallery>>  more

Mastroni | 10.2.14

Attention: Shameless self posting. For all you die hard Volume site readers out there who may have noticed I haven’t been in the mix as much lately, it’s because I’ve been out and about working really hard to wrap up my own section in The Finer Things. Having spent the last couple years very much dedicated to finding spots and filming everyone else, I’ve been taking this time to focus more on my own section, make my ideas a reality, and make it as good as can be. I’ve been told before I have a one track mind and am totally incapable of multi-tasking….for the most part this is absolutely true. Our friend Devin Feil shot this in the midst of getting one of my bucket list ideas done the other day right here in Long Beach with our very own Josh Clemens behind the lens. – Mike Mastroni

Vital’s Game Of Bike

Brian | 10.1.14

game-of-bike
This years Vital’s Game Of Bike has a few of our riders in it and can’t wait to see how it all goes down.  This year it’s actually at a street plaza (Hollenbeck Plaza in Los Angeles) and with ‘real’ street riders.  Our dudes, DeMarcus Paul, Josh Clemens and Broc Raiford will all be in it.  The contest goes down this Saturday and will be live on Vital’s website.

“This Saturday, October 4th we’re taking over Hollenbeck Skatepark in Los Angeles and bringing sixteen of the best riders together to compete. This weekend’s street event marks the first time we’ve split Game of BIKE into separate street and ramp editions. We’re expecting the riding to be insane since riders will have to dig deeper to competing against riders of the same discipline.  Join us and take in the good times and amazing riding. The event starts at noon and we expect it to continue until 5:00 pm.” – Vital BMX

ED Penny Build

With all the love our limited ED colors have been getting on the Bermuda V2, Barista bars and Hatchet forks, we thought we’d build up our own ED Penny Bermuda V2 bike with all our new samples from the trade show. This thing looks amazing and couldn’t be more stoked on how the complete bike looks. Hit up your local Volume dealer to order one of your own now while supplies last.  Check out more in detail after the jump. Hit top image to view it all…

We’ve been sitting on this bars shot for DeMarcus’ new Bermuda bike check but since it’s a rad photo (especially since those lil’ quarters are tight and hard to ride) and it’s DeMarcus’ birthday, we figured it would be only fitting to get it up today.  Be on the lookout for his new bike check to drop later this week.  While you’re at it be sure to give him a follow/ shout on his FB page here>>.  Photo by J.Cobbs.
