Cove in the USofA

My friends at Empyeran Distributors just picked up Cove bikes for US distribution which is super cool. They are already doing Brodie bikes and now with Cove they are bringing one of the hottest bikes in Canada to the states, The Shocker! Although Cove has been distributed before in the states the availability has been spotty, but with Jessie and Earnest now on board I would bet that they will have a lot better stock than in years past. I look forward to my friend Mike rocking a shocker next year at the races. And maybe Steve Smith will rock a few more Fluidride cup races next year! eh.

New Bike

Just got a sample bike in from BH it is the new nano carbon G4 bike. It was fun putting it together yesterday and it will be even more fun riding it tomorrow I am sure. It will be a little cold first thing in the morning but it will be worth it!

Intense, Corsair and Turner

Here are some more pics from Interbike. The new Intense SS had a sweet paint job and they were showing the Tazer HT. Corsair had their bikes on display and the red finish on the Crown was beautiful! I am still not too sure about the new Turner I just don't like the way it looks, but I bet it rides like a dream!


The boys from Transition have started a new fixie and commuter line called Traitor. They did this because they all ride to work and didn't want to buy someone elses bike! They looked good the bikes and know those guys they will sell a boat load of them.

something cool

I will post some more from Interbike but in the mean time enjoy this gem of a video

The new Hammerschmidt from Truvativ looked pretty cool. I like the idea of it, the price is a little high but I think they are on to something. I have never been impressed with Truvativ cranks but I think this could change that. Lets see how they hold up this year. They did have some very cool bash guards on display.

Lance is back!

I got to meet Lance at the show, he was signing autographs at the Oakley booth next door to the Magura booth were I was working. This is a good thing for bike shops since Lance has brought alot of people to the sport of cycling. I got the poster signed for one of my shops in Bend since he really wanted a poster signed and I have no room for any posters in my office. So I got to meet him and James from Sagebrush got the poster! win win situation.

New Magura Brakes

Magura has a new Marta for 2009. the Marta SL Mag is sub 300g per brake with the rotor! and I do plan on getting some and putting them on my DH bike to test them out. Also we have some new forks for 2009, the Thor is a 140mm travel fork with a 20mm thru axel that is made for all mountain riding. This will be going on the Pivot mach five I will be getting very soon!

Secret training information

So I figured out why the Atherton's are so fast. Off season training at the stratosphere!! So now that I am on this secret training program I should be kicking ass next year in the DH scene. World Championships here I come!

Sombrio crew

Well like I did this summer in Whistler I went out to dinner with the Sombrio guys and as always we had a blast! after eating more than I could at a Mexican joint in the Venetian we hoped in a super stretch limo and cruised to the Stratosphere to do the big shot at the top of the tower! there were 12 of us causing a ruckus in the elevators and on the roof top. but we had a super time! thanks Kevin

In the presence of greatness!

got to check out the fastest DH bikes on the circuit this year! plus I got to meet and talk to the owners of the bikes and the fastest siblings on the planet. It was cool because there was no one in the 661 booth getting autographs from them so I went up to them and asked them some questions and BSed with them for a little while. They were super cool and down to earth, like most DH racers. I always like rooting for the good folks and the Atherton's are those kind of people. I told them they need to come to the NW and ride since we have some pretty awesome trails that I would bet are similar to some of the trails they are used to riding.

New Rep vehicle

I also found my new rep car! it is environmentally friendly electric hummer! now I just need a roof and I am set!

Feather brakes

Here is a new product at the show and I will be the rep for them here in the NW which I am very excited about. the brakes weight in at 199g for the set with the pads! these will give the ZeroG brakes a run for the money. plus you can get them in many different color accents. great way to improve the braking of your bike and add a little something,something to it.

Now for the good stuff!

OK here is where is gets good, there were a bunch of cool little things in the show this year. The first of them is Pivot!!! the Firebird is going to be my new bike, and also the new company I rep for here in the PNW. I also picked up BH bikes which has a great lineup of road bikes for 2009 including a 13 pound out of the box bike the G$ and we had one on a scale that came in at 11.44 LBS which is insane. The buzz on the Firebird was amazing with alot of shops telling me how sweet the bike rode and how great it pedaled up hill for 6.5" of travel
