Shredits: Danny Macaskill Loops Cortana, Tandems do CX, Incredible Indonesian Mountain Top Riding and more

You know Danny MacAskill is getting big when Microsoft wants him to “recreate Cortana’s Signature Halo.” What better way to do that then to create one of the biggest full loops ever ridden on a bike. And then put it on a barge in the middle of the river Thames. Coming in at 5 meters or nearly 16.5″ in diameter, as usual Danny makes it look easy.

It’s no full loop, but racing a tandem during a cyclocross race is also a bit nuts. That and more after the jump….

Bike Check: Jeff Herrera’s La Ruta Winning Borealis Yampa, Courtesy of Dirtwire.TV

Borealis Yampa La Ruta

I bet you never expected to see a guy on fat bike wearing a leader’s jersey. That’s exactly what happened when Jeff Herrera tackled the 22nd edition of La Ruta De Los Conquistadores on his 22 lb Borealis Yampa. There was actually an entire fat bike class at La Ruta which Jeff won, but he also finished just outside of top 20 overall in 22nd place.

Our friend Thom Parsons was on hand in Costa Rica this year to ride some bikes in flip flops, take in some sun, and also provide coverage for Dirtwire.tv including more installments in his Wicked Pro Bikes video series (you have to say it with a Boston accent). After Jeff’s bike check, Thom says “This is the fat bike (and fat bike rider) who finally made me want a fat bike. ”

Must Watch: The Bike Brothers Movie

Godziek Brothers Movie

Part bike video, part big budget Hollywood blockbuster, the Bike Brothers Movie is one you definitely have to watch. Highlighting the talents of Dawid and Szymon Godziek, the Red Bull Media House movie starts out in the Shining and continues on to include a number of different film references – with plenty of back flips and tail whips thrown in for good measure.

The bike video gauntlet has been thrown, check out the awesome cinematography next…

Lizard Skins Wants You to Grab a Bearclaw w/ Darren’s New Signature Grips

lizardskins-lockon-bearclaw-grips

Lizard Skins has introduced their thinnest grips ever with the new “Bearclaw” Darren Berreclothe signature edition.

They’re 130mm wide and use a new, softer grip compound they say is equally comfy with or without gloves. That’s good, ’cause there ain’t much there to cushion your palms – diameter is just 29.5mm. Compare that to the 30.5 Peaty grips or meaty 33mm North Shore grips.

Available in black or white, you can choose the color of the inner and outer locking rings and even customize the font style and message for a slight upcharge. Video and promo flyer below…

Éclat’s Shane Weston Signature Blind Free Coaster Hub Finally Street Ready, Goes Every Which Way

Shane Weston Signature 'Blind' hub

The Shane Weston Signature ‘Blind’ hub by Éclat.

BMX rider Shane Weston teamed up with Éclat to create a new coaster hub, and it’s finally ready to roll. What sets the Shane Weston Signature ‘Blind’ hub apart is that not only can it be flipped from right side drive (RSD) to left side drive (LSD), but the freewheelin’ hub can even be converted to run a cassette. It offers the full range of options for the contemporary street rider, whether they prefer pedaling forward or backward. With this level of versatility, Éclat claims you’ll never need another hub. Apparently Shane Weston tested this hub for close to three years and it functioned so well “he swears by them.”

Flip below to see a video of Shane tearing it up on the new hub…

Intense Cycles: Tracing Dirt

20141019200

If your neck of the woods is lucky enough to have a true Fall season, you probably agree that it is absolutely one of the best times to ride. Fall of course means different things to different regions. To us, it means mostly dry buff trails with beautiful Fall colors and ideal temperatures. In the Pacific Northwest it apparently means “rolling fog, sporadic rain, and reoccurring cloud cover.” While that may seem like a downer to some, for faultline TV and Intense Cycles, that means a chance to film some great riding in some of the best conditions…

Video: Kross Bikes Gives An Inside Look At Factory & R&D

Poland’s Kross Bikes has created several videos giving us an inside look at their factory and R&D teams in action. Mostly unheard of in the United States, Kross is a full-line brand primarily sold in Europe.

A large percentage of their products are made right in Poland, giving them greater control over their manufacturing, but also the ability to tell the story in depth since they own the process. The third video tells the deepest story, and it has English subtitles.
