Chris Smith test riding one of the first prototype frames by Impurity Bike Co.

Throughout 2015 I have been involved in the development of a new street frame by Impurity Bike Co. The initial motivation behind this project was to create a frame that is: A) Robust enough for burly modern day street and ramp riding with; B) Sensible angles and geometry for nose manuals, regular manuals, grinds, airs and; C) To be visually appealing.

I only just found the time to upload this ‘Raw Cut’ style edit of the Flatland Jam at the Vibration Urbaines #17 Event! Last year we were a Media Partner with the Event and this year we are hoping to throw in some prizes! More edits from the event soon! – VS
The VANS REBEL JAMwill be taking place this weekend at the York Hall in London (UK). The contest is very STREET orientated and this can be evidenced by the fact they got Brian Kachinsky in to design the course. At present over sixty pro riders will be battling it out for a piece of the 20,000 euro pro purse. The event itself is free to watch but make sure you get there early enough to get a spectator position (it will no doubt be packed). If you can not make it to the event then don’t worry – you can still watch it for free from home! The URL to watch the event live is: www.redbull.co.uk/rebeljam. Enjoy! – Chris@VS Continue Reading
What we have here is the official contest video of the VibrationsUrbaines event that recently went down in Pessac (France). The video was produced in house by the Vibrations Urbaines Team. The contest was dope and I will be releasing my video of the event in January! Keep your eyes peeled! – VS.
The Flatland Event at VibrationsUrbaines (2014) was intense and this edit (by Global Flat) captures the highlights. If you look hard enough you will see me in the background clocking the action for the valleyside take on Urbain Vibrations. I will be dropping the web video early in 2015 – keep your eyes peeled! – Chris@VS.
The Vibrations Urbaines #17 Festival is approaching (17th-26th of October) over in Pessac (Bordeaux, France). The Festival will feature a BMX Contest and we will be there to document the action! More details can be found below! – VS
