To describe what you are about to see would be dreadful. The practice, timing and bike skills are pretty awesome. Oh and it is on 1935 equiptment.
Do you like the footage that comes from places like Nelson BC? Do you like full speed senders? Do you like Supercross? Then you are going to love this! Check out the big mountain style on these guys.
The “Outlaws of Dirt” Series had their first stop at Burlington Indoor Bike Park. It was snowing slightly outside so the indoor venue was awesome. This was BMX and MTB in one contest. There was some serious talent in both classes but some big names were definitely missed. Burlington is pretty close to the Canadian border so I thought more guys would jump across to this event. Not sure the full results but here are the Podium Results and pictures.
So its winter time and that is when we usually get to do some custom builds for our great customers. Here is a bike that we are particularly proud of. It is a custom 2 stage powder coat with custom cut graphics. The graphics are done in house (call for details) and the powder coat is sent out to a friend of the shop. Intense was nice enough to send the frame to us in a totally raw form (bonus for being made in America). Our custom wheel program is one of the best around. Buy all of the parts from us at MSRP…then we will build them and maintain the tension for the life of the wheel for FREE! Enjoy the visuals.
When we moved to a bigger place we decided we needed to have a better selection. Well if you come in you can choose from a ton of different brands. Not only do we carry Devinci, Kona, Transition, Intense, Norco, & Giant (at our sister store Burien Cycle). We have a ton of BMX parts and bikes (we can get almost anything). Comfort bikes like Raleigh, Diamondback and Electra. Road bikes from Surly, Soma, Raleigh, Redline and Norco. Check out a few of the things that have come through in the last couple of months.
We are still stoked to have had this happen in our shop. The next time we will be prepared to throw a huge party! So stay tuned for more fun.

Four years ago, my best friends and I broke ground in a little plot of woods beneath the shadow of the Cascades. In those years, we have seen the woods transform completely at our own hand. When we started, we had little building experience but enough motivation to move mountains (literally). In the beginning, we dug to satisfy a need. What we needed was good “BMX” trails that were MTB friendly. Our friends in the BMX community weren’t too fond of us MTB groms at the time. In hindsight, I don’t blame them. I probably would have chased my 16 year old self out of the trails with a shovel too…
Since then, our common bond has brought us together to enjoy our trails as equals.Over the life of this place, I myself have developed an odd taste for digging and building. So much so that personally, I enjoy building as much as riding itself. This place has become a showcase for our art and one hell of a fun rollercoaster. I’m damn proud of what we have built. We set out to build some of the best trails around and I think we did exactly that, but I’ll let you all be the judge.So here you are, I hope you enjoy my edit. Thank you Evil Bicycles and Deity Components for keeping me rolling, and Bell Helmets for keeping my dome in one piece. Oh, and if you haven’t yet been acquainted, welcome to The Jungle.

Well we went up to the newly opened Burlington Bike Park and had a blast. The pump track is a tight fit but loose enough to gain speed until the world blurs. All of the jumps may look huge to new comers but they are well built with tons of room for error. I had not rode jumps in about 4 months and not on a bike in 2. But after a few laps I was hitting the medium line with no problems. They are always dialing it in so it is only going to get better.
Demolition Parts crew showed up in the Northwest to hit up our trail scene. The riders included Chris Doyle, Dave Dillewaard, Ronnie Napolitan, Kris Fox, Rob Wise and Mike “Hucker” Clark. They dodged the weather and were able to ride some sick trails and even stop by the shop for a sesh. Keep updated here…next week for shop footage!
