Looks great shred!

I'm wanting to eliminate as much of the over seas manufactured parts on my bikes as possible over the next year or so. What brands do you all like that are made in North America?

I tried to do some of this on my bike I'm putting together and trying to be more mindful with my other purchases I've been making lately.

WR1, I9 hubs, NSB-chromag bits, CK headset, wolftooth stuff for my commuter, King cages, and a Canadian made frame, and I bought a pair of NF pants. It's not always that much more $ to get NA made once you're looking at the higher quality stuff anyway.

I was just going to post the EXACT same thing! 750 took the words right off my keyboard!

I have only recently found this thread and do not really know any of you personally, but the talent and the vibe in here is as real as it gets ANYWHERE, and for that I am thankful, as it is becoming rare these days.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL! I know it seems like we all do a lot of bitching in here, (it's what old guys do, right? I mean, we have earned the right to bitch, right? Big Grin ) but I hope everyone here is able to spend this day/weekend relaxing with those they love and truly take time to give thanks for all that we do have!

Cheers! Beer

What's the best music for edits and why is it metal?

LOL

What makes you want to get out and rip shit up more than listening to some metal? I listen to thrash at work all the time just to get me through the day!


That was perfect! the video is pretty funny.

Happy American Thanksgiving, I hope you don't roll too much after the feast.

Jesse Munden...remember the name. Friendly, respectful, humble and is a killer rider. His dad and I ride together all the time and his older bro is my co-coach. This family shreds.


and that folks, is a perfect mtn bike video.

I really like how they didn't make the kids look like "bros". Jesse is 15 and I think the other fella is 14/15 also. It was just two kids who shred riding bikes. At the risk of gushing on this kid...but all of us old ballz talk about how we want to be like him when we grow up.

t

i love seeing green bikes or that camo bike army designed as well. i know that a share of photographers lament about how green bikes don't show well with a natural canopy in the background. but you shouldnt decide your colour schemes based on much poser potential the bike has.

i think shreds raw frame with the f*ckin leather seat is the nicest looking bike ive seen all year. it reminds me of those old porsche 356 convertibles that regularly remained raw metal and leather upholstery.
