First Full Day on the New Bruiser Aug 16, 2009

Rode with Andy T. all day today, hitting spots in the neighborhood. First full day on the new bruiser. You can really feel the difference in weight between the production and the last prototype. It’s such a well-handling bike.

A wallride spot I rode a year ago with Sam Miller and Tom. A lot different to ride it now. Not the best transition to the wall, but it’s totally worth riding.

This bike is such a beast and it’s got great clearance for bunnyhop barspins.

We set up a ghetto bank along the edge of the pool. There’s a guard rail about 2 feet from the edge of the bank to gap. Fun times.

The space is eerie. It was, at one point, the largest public pool in the US.

Andy took a lot of detailed pictures of the new Bruiser, so check them out, along with others from today here!
