Get Well Soon Trailboss

Stoner took a serious crash to the face today on the new 7th set in bb's.
We're not really sure what happened, but things were really dry and fast, so we're thinking he overshot it pretty badly, went OTB, and took it straight on the face.
No real update on his status at this point, but i'll keep you posted. For sure has a broken nose, concussion, and some lip work coming his way. He was out cold for probably 2 minutes...
so we're all hoping for the best and wishing him well.

Get well soon buddy.

From all of the 717Family and friends.


(he'd probably be bummed if i didnt put a pic up of his face, so here it is.)
(*update*)
Latest word on condition is that stoner is still in the ICU. Broken nose has been set, lip is being worked on, and he has some degree of bruising on the brain.

It makes you stop and think. The jumps we ride are big. I mean, you get used to them after a while, and they don't seem threatening anymore, and the flow is good and things ride right all year. But at the end of the day, when it comes to their size, it doesn't change. Just keep that in mind. Just because it feels easy doesn't mean it won't wreck your shit.

The first draft of the Gtown BMX summer Jam. Looks super dope! Thanks to Dan Depre for this one. Sponsor list coming soon. So far we have Kink, Turbospoke, The 717 Family (us!), Literacy Bikes, and Groove Merchants. They'll be on there shortly and hopefully more companies are down to sponsor from there!

I AM TURBOSTOKED!

Well we did a little bit of filming this evening with the Turbospokes! A few things happened. 1. Danny apparently dialed in flairs and did one on the 6th Only lip (no joke) 2. the newest set in BB's got cleared after some tweaking 3. finally got wings and realized that Danny and myself are the only people that aren't total pussies.
Here is a quick clip of both the Turbospoke being used AND the 7th BB getting jumped clean.

Weis Trails Page

Some trails I rode way back when are getting a new lease on life. The Weis trails of Penn State. Check out their new blog...

Circa 2004...note the fit of jeans, the Threshold sprocket, and the gyro. No big deal though, those glasses will never change.

Dialed

These guys have some seriously dialed looking trails and the family is paying them a visit later this year. Couldn't be looking more forward to it. Until then check this video I found on their site while laid up sick from work.

Longer and longer helmet cam

The helmet cam videos are getting a bit longer each and everytime...now that the 7th Only is sending like a dream Eric did it up big wheel style and broke out the helmet cam. Here is the video to follow. More soon.




And here is a sweet on of Eric eating shit coming into Onlys from Beyonces. That line is a tricky...

Build Up

Decided to add another foot to the top of the 6th Only...and WOW did it make a difference. We can sail the 7th set so much easier now! Could't be happier. Hopefully a revamp of that 7th lip coming soon. Trails are running fast and smooth. They look rougher than I'd care for them too but I'm not going to waste my time fixing anything if they are riding great.
Ax is finally sharpened so hopefully before the end of summer/beginning of fall we'll get that crazy lip in BB's running. Just have tons of roots to chop out to finish the landing.

Anyway here is a quick snap Matt took with his new phone of Rob stacking on that landing. Expect many more hipster-ass style photos on the blog over the next few months haha

video
Mega dan sent this to me today....
Apparently he has learned 360 Flips.
There will be a seriously ridiculous edit coming from the Megadan/Cramer camp soon.

I do not know how to edit blogs... this is something i've accepted...
however, i think most people would rather read something vs nothing...
HOWEVER,
i will not stand for penny farthings being called gay.


There is nothing gay about this!:

7th Only Jumped...FINALLY!

Learn to post?

In my absence Fashion has taken a step in and tried to keep everyone entertained with his "witty" one liners and clever jokes regarding my god-given chest hair; however, he apparently isn't exactly skilled in editing his posts as the photos somehow turned out incredibly small and he managed to post the same paragraph twice, I guess in case you missed it before the photos you can catch it after haha. Maybe if he'd get off his ass and stop being a giant vagina daydreaming of building himself a faggy penny-farthing he could actually get the Gtown and Pitney Woods edits done.
Anyway all in good fun Matt. Thought you'd need something worth reading in the morning.
Here are some pictures from Sunday. Though not many its better than nothing. Video coming very shortly...as soon as I'm done "waiting in line" on stupid ass Vimeo. Shoulda used Youtube.
















Huge delay lately in updates, and i'm sorry for that.
Sunday we rode all the lines, and everything was running beautifully.
The 7th B.B. will be running in no time, and its going to make you defecate in your pants, no lie.
The 7th Only finally got sessioned by Stoner, Myself (fashion) and The Pro. Its awesome when you hit a monster set that no one has really blasted yet, and it feels like its been there for months getting ridden every weekend. Nothing needs changed on it at all.
Here are some pics from the week prior, pics from sunday will be up as soon as stoner stops drinking beer and growing out his chest hair.
but for now....












Stoner. Actually gooned out but it looks good.
