Monolever turns 10! Posted by Francis on Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

The Odyssey Monolever turns 10 years old this week. The short, medium and trigger shapes (and the M2 bracket) were designed over three 14 hour days to meet a deadline in June 2003. The short handle was based on an old customized Tech 77 lever that Nuno Oliveira had, and the trigger came from an old ODSY race lever that Jim Cielencki used. Thank you to anyone who has used them over years. We appreciate it.

Beringer Bike Check & Update Posted by Francis on Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

This is Matt Beringer’s latest ride. There are still some little mods he wants to do to it here and there but for the most part, this is it. We shot the bike check when we were filming in SLC earlier this month and Matt’s currently on his way to San Francisco to get some more clips. Jimmy Levan will be in attendance as well so Bay Area, watch out!

Gary Young Bike Check! Posted by Francis on Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Gary Young has a bike check up over at the Sunday site. We noticed some kids happened to spy that he’s not running his own grips right now and that’s mainly because he’s in the process of updating his signature grip so he’s trying out some other ones to see what changes he wants. Also, the Gary Young bar will also be getting a fresh update soon so keep an eye out for that as well!

Check out the pics above and then play Pong when you’re done!
Oh and you might as well watch his Tunnel edit again, too.

Matt Beringer e-mailed us a bike check today along with a couple of photos. With winter coming to an end, it looks like he’s getting his bicycle dialed for the warmer days ahead. Aside from a couple parts here and there, he’s pretty much taken apart his whole bike, for one thorough overhaul. Click the pics to make ‘em big.

Front and rear stoppies Posted by Francis on Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

The last guessing game was a bit of a curve ball with most people guessing Aaron Ross or Terry Adams. If you were to look into a crystal orb (in this case, our Twitter account would be an adequate substitute), you’ll discover they actually belong to Mr. Adam Banton. We sent him a really bright parts kit and he’s done well with them. The black makes the colors pop like crazy and his new bike is looking dope. Check it out above (photos by Jeff Hall).

If you’re interested in stalking Adam, follow him on the Twitter and le Flickr.
The read more teleporter will take you to Adam’s 2003 Odyssey video part.
His Electronical part is on the way.
