Adam Banton Bike Check

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!

Gary Young Bike Check!

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.

Adam Banton just sent us some new pics of his bike. The theme is freestyle and the white tanwall rims are in full effect. If the fist of post rule looks like it’s being violated, that’s because Morgan Wade dropped his seat for him so could learn decades and opposite whips. Lowering it has helped a lot and it doesn’t look like it’ll be coming up again any time soon; “You don’t mess with someone who looped Mt. Baldy.”

Click around the flipbook above to get fresh.
Keep up with Adam via!

Oh and if you want to learn how to Luc-E grind, watch Adam’s how-to video.


Mike Gonzalez

Mike Gonzalez sent us some pics of his splatter bike, decked out with some Fire Engine Red parts. The Senior 2 saddle is available now and the rest of the red will come early next year.

We have Mike on the team as our designated racer but he’s down to shred some parks and ditches as well. Check out the Swine Flu Tour for some clips.

Greyboy and Truly have a bike check up on the Ride site, along with an interview about Impakt Sidehacks and an online version of their Sidehack Love article from earlier this year. Constantly carrying 315lbs plus the force of landings and grinds, these 3 wheeled cousins can take and handle a lot of abuse. Check out the bike check to see what type of parts they’re running on it!

The JC/PC Pedals are half white, half black. I run the pins on the white side flush for pedal grinds. I also run a white half on that side so I always know what side is the grind side.

As for the bars, they are exactly Lumberjacks, with 4 deg. of up sweep, making them 8.6″ tall. Your hands are in the same position, your wrists thank you for the up sweep.

The Weight for all of those wondering: 22.8 lbs.

As one of the main dudes behind our R&D, you can bet that Ben’s bike is dialed (and blinging gold). A complete parts list can be found in the flipbook above and a couple things to note are the new Four:four bars and the gold rims, spokes, nipples and hubs he’s running are now available.

Dean, WTF?!

Dean Dickinson, the man with over 100 pools under his wheels, put together a jam this past weekend over at the Donald skatepark in Oregon. The park features a replica of the famous Nude Bowl and that’s where the majority of the shredding ensued. To help preserve the integrity of the pool coping, we donated a bunch of G-Sport Plegs. Dean’s carve photo above is bonkers and if you want to see more great pics and info from the jam, make sure to visit
