Product News: The ‘VP VARIAL’ Headset (VP-USA)

One of the latest breakthroughs in the Mtb industry is the ‘VP VARIAL’ adjustable headset by VP Components – The headset allows 3 degrees of head angle adjustment – Fresh Huh!? The headset itself has been designed to allow 3 degrees of trail side adjustment! Furthermore, the stem can be adjusted within two minutes! Voila: The mountain biker now has a headset that can easily be dialled to the handling characteristics required – NICE!

Now the question… How long will it be before we see a BMX rider rocking one of these headsets??? A product like this could be very useful indeed to the modern day flatland rider – When working on front wheel tricks the headset angle could be set steeper; and vice-versa for rear wheel tricks! Obviously it could be used for street riding if could be proven to be strong enough – Again, mint when the time comes to to drop that (as Chad Degroot would say) “Front Wheel Boogie”!

Ps. Drop us a line if your a retailer interested in ordering VP Comoponents – Chris@VS

/// News: Boneyard Website & Promo ///

Just got this email from Jon Edwards (of Dig/Naive/Trail Kill fame!):

Hey Chris,

I know yourself and Valleyside have supported the Boneyard over the years. The place has gone through a lot of changes of late, all for the better and continues to improve and support all locally.

Just wondered if it would be possible to mention they have a new website up over at: and a new promo video, shot by Andrew Lawrence:

Locations: Amsterdam Skatepark >>>

Carry on reading for further images...

Back in December I travelled over to Holland for The Rebel Jam. I was lucky enough to spend some time in Amsterdam prior to the contest in Eidenhoven – One of the highlights of my stay in Amsterdam was being granted a private session at ‘Amsterdam Skatepark‘. This was a good oppourtunity to ride an empty skatepark! And I was really impressed with the facility – The ramp quality was high and the design was fun to ride – It definetly had a ‘street’ bias due to the fact it’s primarily a skateboard park (it’s only open on a Wednesday night for BMX riders!). Also, some of the Qtr pipes are a little slacker than your typical transition. When you’re not on your bike you can chill out in the lounge/bar where you can enjoy a good range of food and drink. All in all, ace skatepark, don’t miss it! – VS
