Video: Garage Check with Eric Porter

Apr 17, 2020
by Daniel Sapp  

With many people having far more time on their hands than normal, home improvement projects are happening at a rapid pace. Eric Porter's compound is one of the best places one could be during social distancing and he takes the time to give a tour and breakdown of his recently updated garage.

bigquotesI hope that some people can get a little bit of inspiration for their own garages from mine. It was a bit of a mess but with some work and help from friends, it's now far more functional and I've been able to keep it tidy for nearly a year knowing everything has a place.Eric Porter

While all of the work was done several months ago, this is the first time we've got the full tour and it's almost as inspiring as his backyard dirt jumps.

 Gmbn tech does a bike shed segment where users submit there own home shops, and the hosts have also toured their home shops as well. I’m a shop your junkie.

 I honestly don't understand why people are such huge fans of seth bike hacks, I mean he probably tends well to the masses seeing as the sport has softened and is much more mainstream with entry level riders being the bulk of the cycle population. For example, his trail system is a little over the top excessive, "today we are going to build a road gap, we have been meaning to do something like this for ages" builds a 1.5' booter over a gavel 10ft driveway onto a flat uphill, adds up ridiculous signage and beautiful log fencing as if your at a resort, then edit the f*ck out of it with slow-mo and over the top reactions.

Yes, I've become bitter, but thats cause I grew up watching Simmons fly over the Marzocchi truck, with Marzo hooker posters in my room, listening to overkill by motorhead, launching my 24/26 norco 250cc over an actual f*cking road gap with a bmx lid, death wish, and paraphernalia I hid from my mom. Where the f*ck are my OG's at!

 That was really fascinating and one of the better things I have watched recently! (This surprised me. I mean, come on. A tour of somebody's garage???) Anyhoo... Now I have to organize MY mess! Or not, because I am lazy and his organizational efforts look like they required work. On the third hand, I love work! I could watch people work all day.
