woah

this dude can reeally huck his bike around, i mean sheeeez

sick
I wanna see more lines though, obsttacles and stuff
this guy has got mad skill with the 3taps & variations, and the stairs were super good, but it doesn’t feel the same as nasty or tom in the way that it makes use of new spots and random stuff. I mean don’t get me wrong it was sick, and the whole deck quarter thing was cool, and the dude is ridiculous, but it could look better

mad stuff

got gif?

cheeeez

BLOODY K@NT!

this k@nt! edit is insane
super sick, you gotta watch it
nasty kills it big time, with various goofy stuff and bangers
check the s-w-eeet full cab at about 4:10. cleeeean

this is a big one

nasty & tom lamarche have gotta be my personal favourites right now fo sho
I guess nasty’s style is super appealing due to the obvious skateboard influence, interested more in threading together lines and obstacles rather than perfecting some bazillion degree spin – however technically achieved it is – and it looks so smooth! for example that nice bank hop wheelie round thing at 2:40, the gaps and random spots. makes me want to ride. awesome

velo::re belts in store

from the velo::re website:

“Beltoe and Beltie are belts made from recycled bicycle tyres. Each one is an individual, and handmade, with its own history. The tread bears the scars of every mile travelled, and every unauthorised skid. We like the idea of recycling and making full use of the discarded and the superfluous, ending up with something that already has its own character.

Belties are made from front tyres, which get less wear, so still have plenty of tread left. Beltoes are made from back tyres, which work harder and carry more weight, so they`re kinda threadbare.”

I think they are 35 P’s? will confirm
