Head Cam video

Saturday, February 5th, 2011

After a chilled out period over Christmas the team are finally getting into the way of things again.  We got together for an uplift session and managed to get in ten runs, usually unheard of in this country.  It turned out into an all-out competition with the three of us aiming to take away the fastest time of the day.  Towards the end of the session things started to get scarily fast, but before the last couple of runs our times started to increase due to our tiredness.  We also experiment a bit with different head-cam mounts and put a wee video together.  Check it out below.

Rosco’s Bike Update

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Now that the swing arm had been shortend next up was to get the tire clearance back. So we had to cut and shorten the top tube and using a blow torch we heated up the seat post tube and were able to bend it forward to join the top tube. As we had came this far we thought we would add a few trick bits and fitted an intergraded seat clamp and some fork bumpers just to make it a bit more custom! Have to thank davey (Big Chief) for the brains behind it and all the hard work.

Hopfully have it sprayed and finished soon so check back for pics!

Young Guns!

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Rosco was helping out the Bike Dock “Young Guns” on sat at a BMX track in belfast. The Young Guns was started up last year by the Bike Dock Belles and is for kids aged 12 and under. The reason for this is to help young kids have better MTB skills so they can have more fun! Also some of  the kids compete in XC and Cyclo Cross so Rosco was giving them a few tips on bike control. Rosco will be involved with this through the year so any kids interested check back on the Bike Dock website to find out when the next one is.
