Orchids, DVDs, Bone Deth?
Got in yet another batch of Orchid shoes, pictured below are the ones we haven't had before, from left to right: the "Vandever" in blue, the "Hex" in black/grey, and the "Lurker" in navy/grey... we got some other Orchids
back in stock, too, so if you've been waiting for something to come in check with us, it may be here...
Also got in the "Origin: Building the Underground" DVD, which looks like it is pretty much the Northwest trails scene, and some Odyssey Vandero front hubs and cassette hubs both in black, grey, or red...
And last but not least, I got a call from Ferbert and Sean Burns yesterday about the "Bone Deth Deadman Challenge" that they're trying to get rolling in Philly sometime in July... I thought it was a joke
when I read about it on the Metal website, but apparently it's for real...
In brief: "No ramps will be under 10ft tall...", "tight rope riding...", "a flatland challenge on a round pick nick table 20ft off the ground...", "no judges, wild pit bulls running the course...",
"definetly wild boars and chickens all over the place, lots of glass..No security gaurds... but medeival style be-headers with leather masks and whips...",
"washed up celebrities...", "high dive diving board to flat ground...", "this is no joke, i am dead serious..." Be afraid, be very afraid...

New Orchid shoes, etc
Hey everyone, just checking in... went up to Sunday River snowboarding the last couple of days, Sunday was awesome... like 50 degrees and sunny... I'm hoping to get in
another trip or two before the season ends, we'll see I guess... by the way, for those of you that don't know, we're going to be carrying a little bit of snow stuff next season...
we've got a couple of Santa Cruz boards in stock and on sale, and we'll be getting more Santa Cruz boards and bindings in August or September, hopefully along with some other winter necessities...
keep us in mind for your snowboarding needs, or if you've never tried it before let me just say it's an awesome way to get over the frustration of not being able to ride all winter...
Other than that, we've got the rest of our new Orchid shoes coming in this week, namely the "Hex" in black/grey, the "Vandever" in brown, black, and navy, and "Lurkers" in black/white and navy/grey...
around the same time we have yet another new BMX DVD coming in called "Origin: Building the Underground", which I believe is a northwest trails video... haven't seen a good trails video in a while...
That's about all for right now, there's a bunch of new stuff a-brewin', more on that later... see y'all later...

S&M pedals, Innocent Bystander DVD, skate stuff, etc
Got in the new S&M "101" pedals today, in black or white, sealed or unsealed... scroll down to March 18 for a better pic...
Also got in the Innocent Bystander DVD called "This Road Ends", which is full of people you probably haven't heard of, but it's supposed
to be really good... I'm hoping to check it out sometime today... Also got in FBM's "Castro" hat, and the June '05 Ride magazine...
We also got in a bunch of skate stuff: decks from Santa Cruz, Black Label, Anti Hero, Fiveboro, and Shorty's, some Ricta wheels, and trucks by Independent and Krux.
We've also got hardware, bearings, grip, and all that other good stuff, and a complete Santa Cruz skateboard... we've had some people asking for skateboard stuff
lately, so we figured what the hey...

Not much else going on, drop on by and say hello to me and Madison...

LAST DAY OF WINTER!!
Just wanted to let y'all know a few things... we'll be getting in the Bad Timing DVD early next week... looks like it should be
pretty sick... and around the same time, the Innocent Bystander DVD called "This Road Ends"... also, if anyone was wondering why we never got Dig #44, it's because our account got all messed up somewhere along the line... we WILL be getting dig #45 in early April...
more goodies on the way, stay tuned...

The new S&M "101" pedals are on their way, we should see them by the end of next week... we'll be getting

Also, does anyone out there wear a size XL tee shirt? If so, you're in luck, because all of our in-stock XL tee shirts are on

here. That's all, go enjoy that

gold nokons, stick on cable guides
Got in some gold Nokon brake cables today... apparently, they have actualy gold-flake in the finish, which as you can imagine makes these babies
a tad more expensive... they are quite nice though, for you gold enthusiasts...
We also got in some stick-on cable guides for you guys that have been asking about them... below is a picture of the guide, and then a picture of it on
Tony Long's bike, which incidentally was stolen and still hasn't been recovered. The adhesive
on these guides holds up well, but if you put one of these on your bike, make sure that it is clean, dry, and warm, and don't tighten the zip-tie too tight or it will
distort the guide and make it fall off.
That's all for today, get out there and enjoy the sunshine... I hereby declare that winter is OVER!!
