This is my ss Giant Bowery. I run it freewheel, not fixie, because I don't really see the point of running it fixed. I've been riding it quite a bit lately... for exercise and just getting around. It's amazing how effortlessly fast it goes. Bikes are rad.

Funky Fridays... we'll see how long I can keep this up. There will probably be A LOT of James Brown. His nickname really should have been "The Godfather Of Funk." His bands had some amazing grooves. How can you not love this stuff? You might recognize this one as the sample used in this classic Eric B. & Rakim track.
And here is a shot of me that Tater took out at Skeleton awhile back. I'm still not even sure what jump it was on. Maybe the little hip?

Thanks a ton to those of you who have already bought a frame and/or bars! We are getting close to finishing the new website. When that happens, Liquid Dirt will move. Liquid Dirt will become the blog on the Liquid Bikes website (www.liquid-bikes.com). The entire blog archive will transfer over and essentially Liquid Dirt will be the same (maybe better!), just in a new spot. Thanks to those of you that have been checking out Liquid Dirt on the regular over the past few years. Also a big thanks to Jake, Eric, and others for supplying great pictures and good times. Keep digging!

With all of the rain and limited daylight hours to get stuff done, the digging has been going slow lately. But, it's going. And hopefully it was enough rain to keep the dirt nice for awhile.
So, what is trails? This is trails. This is trails. This is trails. This isn't trails (although, it's about trails and it's hilarious). The apology really isn't trails, either. I obviously don't know much about the situation and trail nazis ARE the worst, but it's pretty ridiculous to call out a group of trail builders on the internet. If that's the way they do it, whatever. Go build your own stuff or figure out how to be cool with them if you really want to ride there.
I'm glad our local scene is chill and relatively drama free... that is trails.
Edit: My bad. Had the wrong link on the Dugan hitler vid. That first link I had up was... something. Haha.

Jake went out to Ray's to put in some work for the "Odd Couple" contest. Pretty cool event if you ask me. Not only does it show what the big wheel guys are capable of (even if some of them are out of their element a little bit), but it's also a great example of the open mindedness of most riders. There are shit talkers everywhere... but I think most people are chill and down with anybody that's having fun on two wheels.
