Never affected by the trendiest setups in BMX, Adam’s bike are always the epitome of freestyle. From FUNt brakes to a fistful of post, here’s his latest bike check from Eastern Bikes.
Darryl is hands down one of the best dudes you’ll ever encounter. He recently put together this bike check with Props and to go along with it is not only some awesome riding but also roughly two pages worth of thanks to everyone who helped chip in. This is Darryl’s first new bike in 13 years and we’re proud to have had a hand in putting it all together.

Watch the vid and then say hi to him on Twitter @JShemidragon!
The first bike up on the list is Aaron Ross’ Orange! Safety Orange is the new colorway we have lined up. The only part we have available right now for sale is the Aaron Ross Grip but you can expect everything else to come trickling in later this year.
One other thing that’s new in this bike check is Aaron Ross’ signature tire! It keeps the keyboard theme of all his other signature parts and the thread pattern are inverted keys which spell out some fun messages from Aaron Ross and a handful from the contest we held last year (we’ll be announcing the winners soon). Click around the flipbook above for more photos and a complete parts list!
Ride UK is holding a contest to give away one of the 20 Sunday x Etnies x Odyssey bikes. To win, all you have to head over to their site and answer the question. It’s pretty easy and this bike check might even help you out a little…

Adam Banton just put together a new whip. It’s all white with some black/chrome accents and it’s looking slick. You can check out the full bike check over at the Eastern site!
A while ago, Sunday Bikes put up a bike check with Jim Bauer and we never got around to showing off the whole bike. Here it is now with detail shots and a complete brake down of parts.
Oh and the white/tanwall Aitken Tires were prototypes at the time but they’re available now for purchase!
Vital BMX just put up a video bike check with Adam Banton!
