For those of you who don’t understand the Northern dialogue this is a throwback on a Thorsday (Thursday) with Team 2 Street and there All Day Peg Sesh. If you’re scared of seeing rails getting grinded now is not the time to watch this and it is the time to put down the keyboard/laptop/tablet and learn to ride PEGS.. Adios
This Sunday is gonna be host to the Northeast BMX and BBQ Session at the Wastey. Meet up is at 12pm, there’s going to be a few new pieces to ride that have been installed at the spot, new ledge, new rail plus all the good stuff thats already there. Harry Dizzle says that food will be for sale and beats will be provided.. all we need now is the weather to be nice otherwise it could be a pub session instead 😛

I’ve been aware of Bakos for a while now and seen a fair bit of his work going from strength to strength. He’s worked for himself shooting for fun, sold his work to Shops and Distro’s and even worked for the same magazine I used to work for, Ride UK. After most of the print industry went to shit, and it’s been sad to see it happen because it’s where a lot of us got our inspiration to want to ride and take photos, some riders/photographers like Bakos took it upon himself to start there own zine like Endless Mag. The big print players left the industry a couple of years ago but print has gone right back into the hands of the riders them selves, smashing out there own zines, from photocopied to professionally printed, we’ve still got it all happening and it’s so damn inspiring to see, feel, read and god help us actually BUY and support these paper based formats that inspired a whole load of us to get into the small two wheeled bikes that is BMX.
Take this video as a night cap cause it’s bed time and enjoy the next 8 minutes of interview with Eisa Bakos, be check out Endless Mag and the guys at Frayed for more photos of the stuff we love. Enjoy 🙂
I saw a couple of weeks back on Fooman’s Instagram that he’d been working with the guys at Frayed Magazine on a short documentary about how he got into photography and what he loves about it and what he’s up to. There’s a series of video interviews also with Matty Lambert and Eisa Bakos (Endless Magazine) which i’ll post up after this one for your viewing pleasure. It’s good hearing other photographers stories about where they started out and what inspired them and what they are up to now with the careers. Sit down, make a cuppa and get watching.
It maybe three days old but its definitely worth the watch as Animal’s Dan Boiski hits up some amazing spots around the big smoke. Rails, pole jams, launchers, ledges and speed, this edit has everything the spring time awakening street rider needs to get the buzz before hitting a session. I’m sounding like a flipping personal trainer here so enough of that shit, hit up the video and enjoy. Oh and its filmed and edited well by Peter Adam and Toby Goodyear.

Baz Keep got in touch with us yesterday to tell us about his new brand he’s launching called Tall Order. There’s pretty much no need to give you guys much of an intro into how long Baz has been riding but he’s been going for ages and has rode for some pretty amazing brands like Hoffman Bikes, Primo, Seventies, Red Bull and Cult to name a few and I’ve been lucky enough to have worked and been friends with Baz on projects like Brighton Ain’t Ready, Federal road trips, Up In Smoke Shop Tour and heaps more and he’s been a pretty damn all round good guy to have become friends with and spend time riding the bikes we all love and taking photos of it all happening.
So Baz’s next project is Tall Order, a brand for those who like to ride as hard as Baz and the team ride. For those who love a good transition be it made out of wood, concrete, dirt or a bunch of pallets, they’re starting by releasing two frames in November of this year and you should be able to get them from any of the good bike shops that buy from Seventies Distro as that’s who Tall Order are going through in the UK.
For more info and updates on the team, products, where to buy (anywhere in the world) and more news head over to http://tallorderbmx.com and if you’re tech as hell then there is some social networking too > Instagram | Facebook | YouTube | Vimeo

When I saw Kriss post up a new edited called “Fancy Footwork” I was hoping for one of the most epic tracks of music to be teamed up with the video.. Chromeo – Fancy Footwork but alas there was nothing but the tap dancing sound of his bike and feet hitting up some quality birch ply up at Unit 23. It’s still worth the watch cause he’s a mentalist on a bike but Chromeo would have been my track to go with the titled edit.
The guys from Metal Pegs BMX aka Ghetwak Crew have came up with the goods. Not only have they made an edit filmed over Winter time down in the Big Smoke but they’re also making batches of metal pegs available to purchase here for 25 spondooley (pounds ££) so if you’re in the search of a set of metal pegs give them a try, seems to be working out alright for the lads in the video.

And the internet never forgets.. out of no where I got a message from Mike Higgo who used to get in touch back in the day with edits from about the Crewe and Wrexham areas and then today he hits me up with a new edit from rider Andy Skinner on a night mission at Boneyard Skatepark over in Chester. I haven’t been in years and im putting this back on the list of places to hit up. Would be good to go visit the park as it still looks mint to ride and i’ve met many a good friend there over the years back when I was working for Ride UK and Seventies. Anyways enough of my waffle, enjoy the edit of Andy and his four pegs and a coaster trickery, some good tunes provided by Tame Impala for good measure!

Well the lack of a post this weekend was disturbing and theres good reason when you can’t really get yourself out of bed apart from the fact of when you have to run to the toilet or puke in a bucket.. ah the joys of working around animals sometimes. Talking about animals but using the word in a good way, a few of the Unknown Parasites have been smashing out some fine moves (as always) and getting them captured by Mr Jonny L who sent over a few from a couple of sessions back of riders like D-Chum and Scott Thompson hitting up some waaal reeeds.
