We were doing a little World Wide Web work on sandmbikes.com today and realized we hadn’t given the homie Mike Vitatoe his due shine! Mike’s been reppin’ The Shield in Cinci for us via Spun for a minute now and dude’s been doing work on his TALLBOY frame. Shouts to Troy Merkle for capturing the rail to bar radness.
Give some ups to mom and pop when you wear this ‘Merican Made tee to tout your independence this Fourth of July! Available via our webstore for $17.99 in white or black.
Some of our main dudes have been doing big things on dirt mounds in recent days. Hucker and Co. unveiled this awesome Dirt Lab where the Mike “The Mad Scientist” Clark has been cookin’ up his moves for X Games in Austin this weekend. Meanwhile, Clint Reynolds and the Credence Crew were building and sessioning said X Games course. The Big Show goes down on Sunday, and with Mike in the main event, and Clint first alternate, there’s an excellent chance you’ll see some Shield shine.
The Shield Brethren was in fine form for our boy Boozer’s Jam at Sheep Hills this past weekend. Hucker went ham, Butler blew ’em away and Balls and Maddog were bustin’ threes! Freddy Chulo manned the mic and there were more classic S&M characters in attendance than you could shake a stick at. Having a couple #BuildingBoyz there in Brian Foster and Van Homan went over pretty well too! Apart from our Sales Squad breaking themselves off, the jam was a massive success. Boozer still has shirts too, so support a homie and hit him up on Facebook to score one for yourself.
If you are anywhere in the vicinity of Sheep Hills in H.B., Calif. on Saturday, you better be making your way to the Boozer Jam! We’re raffling all sorts of serious awesomeness off to raise some cash for our homeboy, so come ride, watch and win!
RIDE ran some riddles by Charlie Crumlish, so if you need to know what’s good with the dood, get your hands on the Mirra Issue of the mag. And if you’re in NYC, we just shipped Chuck north to take the streets by storm with Craig Passero. Stay tuned for details on meeting up with the dudes in the NorEast in the next couple weeks.
4-20 seemed like the perfect day to promote the fact that the SHREDNECK stem and X-MAN GUARD sprocket now come in SWEET LEAF like the ENDURO V.2 stem and fork caps. We’re trying to get all the products posted up on the site now, but if it doesn’t get done today it’s ’cause half the dudes here are high.
Introducing INTRIKAT 10″ bars – flat out the biggest, best bars in flatland. Available in black and chrome now!
Trying to get your hands on that good sh*t? We got you. Allow us to introduce you to our little friend, the ENDURO V.2… a taller, less externally-machined version of the original. The new version has a 34mm rise, comes in 40mm, 49mm and 52mm and comes in both SWEET LEAF and BLACK. And if you need some leaf in your life, but can’t spring for a stem, just pop a cap in it… we got em in both M24 x 1.25 and M10 x 1.25.
Clint’s C.C.R. is a serious shred sled and Dolecki and the dudes at DIG have photographic proof. Head that way to learn more about what Reynolds is running, what sort of mods he’s made and what else is in the works.
