Filthy Drains Challenge Teaser



Just another little teaser video I threw together for the Filthy Drains Challenge. As you can see its right next to a bottle-o. Be there December 8th to get loose and have a good time.

The jam will start around 2:30 and should go well into the night. Please don't go to the location beforehand as the last thing we want is the spot getting shut down a few days/hours before the jam.

Kie Ashworth Bike Check.


Click picture to enlarge.
I got a hold of my boy Kie Ashworth for a rad story with
his bike by FBM Bike Co.
the frame is the grey stairmaster fbm frame its pretty gnar
i like it heaps, i tried to keep my stuff simple grey or close
to grey, so i have chrome ape hangers they are cut down like
1cm on each side and running coalition grips grey city series
think they are rochester ones and seriously my favourite new
thing real soft thick, i reccomend them to all my friends they
love them too. my fbm seat is grey also is sweet i love it lots...
they are pretty much my favourite parts on my bike that make
it what they are, so i got new wheels yesterday coalition hubs
with alex rims kane built them real good.
primo cranks(no hollow bite no snapped arms no hospital)
25tooth fbm wurlitzer sprocket its been strongest one ive had
which was good. got some real homo pedals called 'da bomb' i
got them mostly because of the colour described to me as 'bird shit'
yeah i regret my decisions buying them, stupid mountain bikes.
forgot to say i have that new john povah stem coalition its been
re done its real good i like that also, my tires are animal glh
back and i was running a federal front but im to shy to ask stowaway
for a new one so i purchased a odyssey instead but now have spare
animals in my room so imagine thats on the front right now, animal.
i also got like federal lt forks no problems there, coalition post
and clamp which do there job awesomely. my bikes pretty simple thats
all i got i think, i cut down axles i will cut off the mounts real
soon i have a ti spindle which does nothing but add fear to my
bike breaking. oh and pegs i run fbm feather weight on the rear
and a new coalition on the front its alloy light and slides real
good for some magical reason.

If anyone wants to set up a distro over here for farmers
union iced coffee i got your back(no homo) organise that
stuff..got to feed the addiction.

Stephen Murray Benefit Jam.



- Got this in an email from Josh Mete.

As you may or may not know. On July 22nd at the AST Dew Tour in Baltimore, Stephen Murray suffered career ending injuries to his spinal cord and vertebrae in BMX Dirt finals. Stephen is recovering, but his medical bills are reaching astronomical dollar amounts. So the BMX community has come together all over the world to help support Stephen Murray and his family through this difficult time. There has been benefit jams and competions all over the world to help raise funds for his medical bills and other expensive. Well a few guys from Melbourne Australia have decided that it was time to show our support and have a benefit jam also. On the 11th of this month there will be a benefit jam held at hill and dale box Jumps Park to raise money. Forgotten Bikes, Tempered Bikes, Fly Bikes, Triple Six Distribution Worth Ten And Rural Clothing are sponsoring the jam so far but every bit counts! There will also be sausages and soft drinks available for $2 each, All the product that sponsors donate will be auctioned, raffled sold off and 100% proceeds will go directly to the Stephen Murray Family Fund.
