ET, Forks, Flashback, #passtheseat, 10 riders one seat

Wild how time passes and quickly at that. July 1993 I was there that day when Jeff Crawn crashed from his forks breaking while at Scrap skatepark outside of Chicago. We were all excited for the photo shoot going down. Never would have guessed one of the future greats would go down…and stay down for so long. Jeff had the natural ability and skills on a bike but also something in him would make every trick be so easy and fluid. With a flatland background as well he was so well rounded. One trick that stood out was the tail whip to abubaca. Made it look so easy. Only one other person did this at the time. He pulled it like he’s been doing it for ever. He is the reason I think about my forks each batch and each change made on them. Can’t get that day out of my mind. I even visited the factory numerous times for inspections and more. Trying to have the highest standard for forks so this will not happen again. Riding has gotten so tough and rough on a bike that I hope you as riders would inspect your bike for cracks…and rust. Replace parts like forks routinely, inspect welds, and understand not everything lasts forever. Please ride safe, ride smart, stay positive, and enjoy your bike. Take a look at this video below.  -Chad D

 My friend Kenan interviews Jeff and its awesome to see him getting around and shooting some incredible photos. https://youtu.be/l2OVj2y6k9M

“Pass The Seat” DecoBMX 10 riders 1 seat

The idea for Pass The Seat is pretty simple. Get a seat and install it, film a clip, send the seat or PASS THE SEAT. Started with Terry Adams since this is his new signature seat available now. Pivotal, all black, FAT version, hollow chromo bolt, super light foam. Mat Olson starts the party with a self filmed run and packs and stacks the tricks. Matt Coplon got a lil artsy with  a loading dock line. Karl Poyter long mannie line and seat grab bar spin in the middle was dope. Mannie Nogueira fresh off the boat and at his local spot with a new one and his was excited. Scott Weaver magic knee on the seat in circles is unreal. Ryan Torrance has been on some wild flip kick so might as well add it to smith grind. Chad DeGroot going backwards hop style from front wheel to back wheel. Taylor Bonds backwards tech and tbog smoothness. Dontae Styles 360 roof to flat with screams of excitement. AND Terry Adams bangs it out with a new one we did not see coming… whiplash to seat mannie to signature whip. DAMN. 5:54 min. run time.

“The Escape” – E.T. (The Extra-Terrestrial) by MILKBOY x FOURTHIRTY –

 

In a sketchy alley. Smells like turd. Broken glass scattered everywhere. Fry grease oozing onto your path, and you have to swerve to avoid it.
Dialed afternoon solo session: it’s hard to explain to someone, given the circumstances, that this is how we live our lives. And with a smile. – @matt_coplon –
