Kriss Kyle dominoes (FM)

If you follow the world of mountain biking, you’ll likely remember Danny MacAskill’s mind blowing Imaginate video. The fantastically creative segment combined equal parts incredible riding with an interactive environment straight out of Toy Story.

Along those same lines, Kriss Kyle is looking at the world of BMX through a Kaleidoscope…

Video: SE Racing’s Fat Ripper – Could This Be the Most Fun Bike of the Year?

Todd on Fat Ripper

We showed you SE Racing’s Fat Ripper during our Interbike Coverage and the first batch of these bad boys bounced out the door faster than they could make them. In the mean time, while the 2nd batch is on its way, SE Racing threw down a RAD edit of SE Racing’s Brand Manager, Todd Lyons going on an urban warpath atop his creation.

Rip past the break and watch Todd show us a thing or two what a seasoned pro can do on what could be one of the funnest bikes of the year….

UK retailer Go Outdoors debuts several new High-value, Low-price Calibre bikes

UK retailer Go Outdoors debuts several new High-value, Low-price Calibre bikes

Calibre-bikes_Dune_Go-Outdoors-UK_affordable-aluminum_fat-bike_front-3-4

Our readers outside of the UK probably don’t know Go Outdoors, but they put together several bikes under their house Calibre brand that offer a lot of bang for your buck, so are definitely worth a look, especially for entry-level bikes. Plus from their online shop, international delivery to a very long list of countries is just £10 extra. Outside of the EU taxes and import duties come into play, but have a look if you are in the market for a high value bike. Pretty much everything is made of workingman aluminum, but with some decent spec across categories. There is a fat bike, kid’s bike, a women’s road bike, a 27.5″ hardtail, and even a cross bike. Hop past the break for details and pricing…

EB15 Randoms: A little of everything from a Kid’s Fat Bike to a Posh e-Bike

EB15 Randoms: A little of everything from a Kid’s Fat Bike to a Posh e-Bike

Early-Rider_Trail-Runner-XL_14x2-5inch-tires_aggressive-trail-push-balance-bike

There really is any kind of bike you can imagine for every possible rider type at Eurobike. We have been regularly filing reports on the bikes and gear we found wandering the halls for the last month and a half. As the week and our Eurobike coverage nears their ends, we’ve compiled a selection of bikes worthy of a look, even if they didn’t warrant a post of their own.

When we think of the first bikes from Early Rider, it’s bikes like the Trail Runner XL that come to mind. At 150£ the mother-of-all balance bikes gets an aluminum frame, massive 14×2.5″ rubber to roll over anything, and even a steering dampener/limiter to help out when the trail runs out. But Early Rider does a lot more in light and smart bikes to get kids pedaling and out riding too.

Come past the break to see more of the bigger Early Rider bikes, plus stand outs from Bergamont, Open, Silverback, and Lapierre…

When One Isn’t Enough – Ryan Williams Lands First BMX Triple Front Flip

When One Isn’t Enough – Ryan Williams Lands First BMX Triple Front Flip

nitro circus first bmx triple front flip

How big will BMX riders be able to go? That apparently just depends on how big they are able to build the jumps over at Pastranaland. In preparation for the next Nitro Circus Tour and in the never ending quest to go bigger, Ryan Williams and Andrew Ahumada decided it was time for someone to land the first ever BMX triple front flip. The race to landing the trick involved some gnarly crashes but in the end, it was Ryan Williams who finally sticks a near perfect landing…

Obstacle Races, Cycling Legends, & Live Music – At CLIF Bar’s Cykle-Scramble Anything can Happen… & Probably Will

Obstacle Races, Cycling Legends, & Live Music – At CLIF Bar’s Cykle-Scramble Anything can Happen… & Probably Will

CykleScramble-37

Pirates, Prisoners, and Furries were in abundance at CLIF Bar’s 2015 Cykle-Scramble (prounced: see-kul skrambul) at the Marin County Fairgrounds in San Rafael, California. This wasn’t just a race with normal participants…. I’m pretty sure, “normal” participants weren’t even allowed. Even the cycling celebrities “participating” were about as far from normal as one could get. To add to this spectator-heavy event, there were food trucks galore, great beer, and live music being head lined by none other than Cold War Kids.

Ramble on past the table jumps, wall rides, pump tracks and blood stained dirt, (there was a “yard sale” award after-all), to see all that is Cykle-Scramble….

IB15: GT Bicycles shows off pristine Pro Freestyle RAD Movie replica bike

GT-Pro-Freestyle-RAD-movie-replica-bmx-bike01

As RAD celebrates its 30th anniversary, GT Bicycles was lucky enough to have a fan reach out to say they had a restored Pro Freestyle like the one in the movie and ask if they’d be interested in displaying it in their Interbike booth. Sure, why not, right? But sight unseen, expectations were cautiously optimistic. No one had any idea it would be a damn perfect replica of the 1986 bike from the movie.

Check out a few detail pics and other highlights from their BMX line, below…
