Being in the bike industry is amazing and ever changing but still the same in a lot of ways. You always have to be on your toes but not step on any toes as a lot of companies do. So I decided to step on a few because I have one question to ask Eastern, Duo, Mongoose, and Primo…ready for this shit? What the hell color is a skinwall tire? Even GUM color is not white and skin is gum? So let me get this straight that skin wall is all colors even pink like pink dick. So when you order or talk about skinwall tires its an open book that started from some genius color coordinator and spread to the deep south where it still is used and listed as skinwall. Here is to foreskinwall companies with their bell end up their own ass on purpose. Wikipedia defines it “Tires with very little rubber, if any, covering the sidewall are called “skin wall”. This reduces rolling resistance at the cost of less damage protection.” Which opens up another can of worms or fake jumping snakes on what the hell any of this derived from.

Matt Coplon sent over these pics and words to go along with it, ohh shit story is rad and he handled it how a real man should.
In 2003, a seven story pecan tree fell on my house, knocking it to the ground (it’s a traditional Florida bungalow, raised, with a crawl space).The next three months lay in waiting.Until the insurance check came.I was hoping to buy a new house. But my shitty existing house wasn’t worth enough to take the cash and invest into another living space…I had no choice but to rebuild.The next 4 months were spent dealing with shady contracting. I’d often have to go up to Home Depot to check pricing on materials, or just scope out new odds and ends for the house. I found myself up there a couple days a week.That was when I noticed this ledge hop.Right across the street.Over the course of the next ten years, I’d pass by this hop normally at the beginning of a session (it’s real close to my house). Considering the ledge is not translucent (like a rail), it feels like a blind hop. On top of the that, the gap is kind of far. On top, top of that (literally), there is the psychological mind fuck of an awning.Scary, times three.Last Monday I was out pedaling by myself. I rode past it at the beginning of the ride and made the decision that Sunday was the day I’d hold my breath and give it a go.All week I thought about it. Mainly: “what if this thing clothes lines me?”I woke up early, spent most of the day cruising around and set 3pm as the launch date.My buddy Scott and I headed over there at said time, set up the tri-pod, did one last head/bike clearance check followed by one last roll up to the hop.Sometimes, its best not to think too hard about things.Second roll up, I pushed the bunnyhop button and sent one over.It feels good to still have a head.
FLBMX finals at Abacoa with Matt Coplon, Chad DeGroot, and crew.
