Vancouver Artist Paints Iconic MTB Images For Charity
Jared has been one of my best friends since grade school. We have grown up riding the shore with all the icons of the industry. So stoked for him with this initiative. The talent this man possesses for all things art related is mind blowing. These paintings are legit and take many hours to create so please support him and the great causes he is representing.

Brandon Semenuk: Lapse - Video
The tricks we didn't see at joyride because he slid off the run in. Switch drop is sick and will win it for him next year. Rad free vid.

RockShox Vivid R2C. 9.5 x 3.00. 450 lb spring. Was on my Giant Glory Advanced and has 8 bike park days. Nothing wrong with the shock. I got a good deal on a new fox rear shock.

Boxxer Team 2015. 6 3/4" head tube length with drop upper crown. Blue spring firm. Charger damper was faulty and was warrantied so the entire right side is brand new never ridden. Had to buy a new fork because the warranty was going to take so long I would miss the summer. This fork was on my Giant Glory advanced and was ridden 8 days in the bike park. Has no exterior damage.

Cheers to the Chainsaw
I never knew Stevie Smith. I have no right to call him Stevie, or even Steve- as he would have been called by everybody had he grown older. But He amazed me. Years ago, I was caught unawares as I put in a DVD called Seasons. This mountain bike movie, however, was different. I liked every guy who came on the screen. The producers seemed concerned not just with the big results- but with the big personalities. They seemed to have an eye on the Heroes of the sport. A little kid from Canada stuck out- whose loving Mom drove him to take turns down the mountains of their small town on Vancouver Island. I remember vividly her musings in a little Suzuki about how maybe her son would be the first of their family to leave the island- that was where they were all from. Steve Smith rampaged like a good boy ought to. And years later, re-watching the movie, we saw how the riders leaned through corners and downloaded the songs from iTunes. We laughed at their puny bikes and recalled the results of each competitor in the subsequent years. Results unknown to the boys speaking into the cameras about what they hoped would happen. I did not know Stevie Smith. But I know he inspired me. He was a kid from a small town with big dreams- whose mother loved him and hoped nothing more than for him to be the Greatest at what he wanted. For him- To make himself put in the work even when it wasn’t just fun. To be alive. To hear the final ticks of the countdown at the start gate of a downhill world cup. To know there would be no do-overs. To exhale that big breath and leave no chance untaken. Watching Seasons I can see his hunger. I can see his admiration for the other Greats he had somehow been lucky enough to be lumped in with. I can see his pride at his love and his accomplishments- his knowing he belonged. Life is conditional. It does not go on and on. I am thankful to Steve Smith. To have been inspired by him. By his commitment in every turn of every world cup race. By his commitment to the unknown outside his known home. By his commitment to Strive to be the best he could be. Here's to Stevie Smith. #longlivechainsaw
