Web Video: Faction Bike Co ‘Amero’ V S&M ‘Holmes’ 22″

In recent times there has been a good level of interest in 22″ wheeled bikes – a lot of dudes are wondering how they ride – especially taller riders who are looking for something just a little more accommodating.

We are currently in talks with Faction Bike Co about distributing their bikes! – VS

Web Video: Lyons Outdoor Games 2012 (Dirt Highlights).

Lyons Outdoor Games 2012 Dirt Jump Highlights from Tim DaCosta on Vimeo.

I was talking to Joel Alamo the other day and he linked me up with this sweet edit. The edit features Joel Alamo’s first ever 720 on Dirt (01.56)! I was seriously impressed with this clip – The dude just looks so loose as he spins his first double-spin on dirt! He’s riding better than a lot of other riders! Anyway, Joel is also helping to pick the final winner from the VP-USA contest! Not sure how he will do it yet, but you can guarantee it will be a very fair process. In case you didn’t know, Joel Alamo is a famous freestyle rider from the 80’s – Carry on reading to see his full interview!
