Overlook Shots

Here are some shots from our session at Overlook last night. It was only Danny, Brett and myself. Come join us people!!!!

Its shorts weather.  We like shorts weather.

Brett decided to order a drink with three straws for us.
The waitress got a pretty big kick out of the idea.

Our man Yazzie sent me this beer coaster "postcard" from the west coast.
I'm just happy to know that he's alive and well! 
And he promises there are more postcards to come.

Spring Sessions

Spring sessions have begun! Snagged this video of Danny with a 180 barspin over the baby spine at Overlook. Super stoked on the weather finally changing. Let's ride!!!!!!!

Grindlab Jumps

Kid's riding is not really my style at all but its the best video online currently to show the new jumps at Grindlab.  Looks like it should make for a good afternoon of fun.

Wintry Mix Edit

Sam Downs dropped his newest Hothead BMX edit this morning. I actually haven't had a chance to watch it yet (office job problems) but I'll peep it at lunch. Regardless, Sam never drops disappointing vids so I'm sure it'll be a regular old 717 treat. I figured I'd post it up a while.
Spring is here and this is a great way to say goodbye to winter! Fuck off cold temps and hello blue skies, sunshine and tshirt weather!

Time for a frame change

During our trip to Cranx last week Matt pointed out that there is a massive crack more than half way around my top tube where it meets the headtube. I loved my OG Deluxe and had no intentions of upgrading. But the time has come. Went for the S&M CCR! Can't wait to send it.

Fit Edit.

So fucking good. Period.

Cranx Front-wheel Cam

Only had a mount for the frame and we wired it up behind Kimmel's front wheel.  Can't really catch anyone riding in front but it turned out to be a pretty unique perspective.  Good stuff and hopefully The 717 Family will have more of these coming your way all summer time with helmet, chest, and bar mounted footage too!

Justin Kimmel & Ryan Hullinger's Cross-Country BMX Voyage

Kimmel and Hullinger went on an amazing BMX adventure that led them across the country to AZ and Austin, Texas. Ryan put together this edit of their voyage.

And keep your eyes peeled for some GoPro footage from our trip to Cranx on Friday.
