Walter “CatKid” Mayerhofer has just dropped his welcome to Pride-Street Bikes edit, after joining the Pride-Street team in September last year.
Catkid, also a part of Canadian team The-Rise, puts out a good mix of riding, from that technical manny 180 to fakie bar half cab, to that big flat out stair gap. I’m a huge fan of seeing more and more Street riders making good use of their freecoasters.
Nice one dude.
Millhouses Skatepark in Sheffield is pretty much jib capital. I can spend hours just playing on this bank , making slight variation changes, use the sub box, use the hip, the list goes on. I’ve even seen people gap out of the park both ways. Infact I was watching from the sidelines as Chaz Mailey crashed trying to gap over the railings from this bank whilst filming for RideUKBMX’s “Ride To Glory 2010.” If you look closely, I’m in that video wearing a bright blue hoodie. My real fifteen seconds of fame.
Ride to glory 2010. I’m sat at the top of the bank in the blue hoodie.
Matt Jamieson has just dropped this video which is a mix of the best and worst of his previous edits from 2007-2014. Matt is probably one of the original modern StreetMTB riders with no brakes, a rigid fork and a style that would even be at home on a BMX. Continue reading
Rock City skatepark in hull is probably one of my favourite skateparks in the UK. Here’s two pics that one of the guys snapped of me while we was there.
If you didn’t already know, the legendary post office trails have been flattened today. It’s sad to think that something that has played a huge part in a community for so long can be gone in a matter of hours. I really feel for the people that are a part of the Aptos scene, and hope they find a new spot soon.
Although I’m mainly a street guy, I started off riding trails. Back in the day, I used to buzz off this video. Cam McCaul kills it.
Denis Kulagin busts out some super original shapes in this one. My favourite was the bar-pass bar-spinny manual thing, I’ve just got to get out and try that for myself. And them rocket manuals are pretty fly too, especially the fakie rocket.. Call me biased, being a peg and coaster rider, but this is one of my favourite edits in a long time. It’s just right up my street.
I’ve seen this one posted on a few other pages that I follow myself, and for good reason. It’s different, and I like different. Certainly one to watch, nice one dude!
The integrated seat post on my 2014 NS Capital frame is something that I’ve struggled to get on with, It’s just too low and therefore I decided to cut it off mine so that I could put in a normal seat post and adjust the height. This short guide will show you the steps that I took to complete the modification. Continue reading
The first claimed bike-flip on an MTB was actually done seven years ago by Sam Pilgrim. I remember watching this when it first happened and was pretty blown away. I thought that these were going to be the next big trick that everybody would pursue, just like how every other kid and his dog are doing backflips. However, the hype on big wheeled bike-flips has laid pretty dormant since, and I haven’t heard of anybody doing one since.
This one took a lot of patience to get down. Pretty simple line really, just the fakie double peg on the rail at the end was what was causing me grief. In the end I got the line down. Not as clean as I’d have liked, but sometimes you just have to make do.
