 Man I wish print magazines were still a thing. Nothing was better than getting the latest mag in the mail and opening up a to a 12 page high quality spread of images like this.

 Really wanted to see how you get your bar/ grip dragging in the dirt, did not disappoint, but got to remember to time the foot plant out of it?
Just have to build a jump/ roller to try it out on!

 That bar dragging scrub has to be one of the dopest mtb pictures I've ever seen.

 Cheap paint and stickers on a catalog bike frame that’s sorta a YT/Kona/Trek knockoff. I’m sure it hardly matters what he’s riding so long as it doesn’t explode under him.

 @DHhack: I actually kind of like the colour scheme and logos on it. Significant improvement over previous iterations. May well still be a cheap and nasty finish though.

 @DHhack: Frame may be cheap, but the paint sure isn't. Custom job by Fresh Paints of Whistler. Some of the raddest paint out there!
