Reach for the SKy

This would be an intense watch!

““Reach For The Sky” features unique behind the scenes looks at Zink’s dramatic 2013 and 2014 Red Bull Rampage campaigns in Virgin, Utah; plus a one-of-a-kind portrayal of his record-breaking 100-foot backflip attempt at Mammoth Mountain—showcasing 100% never-before-seen footage. The movie explores the fascinating life story of one of the sport’s most beloved and diverse athletes, but also delves into the multi-layered psychological elements regarding physical punishment, fame, and self-doubt, to uncover why Zink perseveres through the adversity—even when no one is watching.”

Digital downloads and Blu Ray / DVDs now available at Reach for the Sky.

3…2…1… take-off! Too bad this ship didn’t land as smoothly as it was jettisoned. Tandems are fun, both to ride and to photograph with this photo in particular getting a lot of requests for the calendar. Ask and you shall receive.

Dermy’s Ritchey Urban Rad Machine Hardtail
Dermy's Ritchey Urban Rad Machine Hardtail

Dermy’s got it down. He wanted a mountain bike to cruise around the neighborhood on and hit hobo trails throughout this urban sprawl we call LA. The bike itself is fairly “stock” with new bars and a modern Thomson stem added to keep it nice and wide up front. Other than that, Shimano Deore and a set of decent wheels keep this thing rolling. There’s not much that can be done about the clapped out fork but hey, what can ya do?

See ya on the hobo trail, homie!

Off the Beaten Path

I’ve been waiting to see more from this project. Off the Beaten Path is a film about the love for mountain biking and fat-tire bikes in general…

Ritchey’s Rowdy Timberwolf 27.5 Hardtail

Long-travel hard tails, especially when coupled with a dropper can be super fun. Add in clearances for a 2.4″ tire and suddenly you’ve got a very capable steel frame from a company that knows a thing or two about steel. The Ritchey Timberwolf has piqued my interest and I can’t wait to try one of these bad boys out…

Mother Nature Did That Thing Again
The plants are so metal in the mountains.

NOAA predicts this year’s El Niño will be one for the record books. While Los Angeles is in dire need of rain, it doesn’t mean our trails are happy when the sky does open its glands and weeps onto our mountains. Last week, the 5 got hit with mudslides, cars were washed away, property damaged, etc. If this is a vignette into the future, we’re in for a bloody muddy winter. (more…)

Imagine what it looks like riding mountain bikes inside a unicorn’s stomach. Yeah…
