Hope Tech: It’s Grim Up North – Showcases New Cranks

Hope’s made in the UK products are top notch and to help create a buzz around their new cranks, they went up North to ride in what many would consider grim conditions with team riders Craig Evans and Sam Flanagan. I’m liking what I see with those cranks, and everything in Hope’s catalog these days. They really are putting in solid work.

Check out a great feature on the Hope Cranks at their site. Availability is slated for late January.

Trackosaurus Rex: Neon Triple Triangle Landshark Track
LANDsharkTracko-3


Photo by Kyle Kelley

Slawta has created some of the most unique and ostentatious frame designs under his moniker Land Shark. Every time I see one of his works of art, I’m completely mesmerized, especially when neon paint is involved. Kyle recently shot this unique triple triangle track and I don’t wanna give too much of it away, so you’ll have to head over to Trackosaurus Rex to see the rest.

Mission Workshop Escapes to the North

With the northeast succumbing to Mother Nature’s frozen fingers this week, SF-based Mission Workshop drops this reminder on us, showcasing the beauty of the Norwegian coastline. Remember, no matter how cold it is where you are right now, there’s always somewhere colder!

“At the earliest sign of winter’s end, brothers Janne and Samu Amunét ventured towards the Arctic Circle. Constant travelers, they were eager to leave their home in Helsinki and explore the recently thawed Lofoten archipelago on the northern coast of Norway for their first road trip of the year. The twenty-four hour drive would take them through parts of Finland, Sweden and Norway still solidly frozen. However upon arriving on the coast the weather tempered. Usually a destination for summer trips, the idyllic village of Å was empty and quiet in a way only remote places can be.”

See some amazing photos and more of this story at Mission Workshop!

Announcement: Disqus Promoted Comments are Turned Off
FYXO-Presents-Bush-Blast-day-02-15

Over the past week, Disqus – the comment platform used on the site – added a feature to all forums called Promoted Comments. Their reasoning was something along the lines of “Fortune 500 companies will pay to have their products advertised on your site.” Uh, not cool, guys. Personally, I see features like that on click-hole websites, not on a community like this.

Problem is, there was no “opt out” / “enable” button on the Disqus admin menu. So all forums were forced into this. Which sucks.

After a week of back and forth, mixed in with angry Tweets directed at Disqus, they claim to have disabled them for the Radavist. Hopefully this means they’re gone for good, because they were an eyesore and I apologize.

In the future, if you see any, screenshot them and post them up in the comments, please.

Thanks for your patience…
