Now Playing: Lucero Hello Sadness
Vision Hip Sacks were huge in the late '80s. These goofy little belted sachels held everything from keys, film, tools, weed, granola bars, you name it. They are now considered lame. I hope no one in the year 2019 is writing this same type of thing about the "Bar Bag" that came out in 2006
I know, we've been calling it the "man bag", but it really is a handlebar bag and it would be handy for riding your bike to the bar. I'm pretty siked on the "ZeroNine Technology" integrated into the straps, which keeps it from flopping around
It fits really well, is easy to put on and take off, has a belt-loop if you want to get really daring and it holds a lot of stuff.
There is a bigger version of this photo somewhere on this website and the first person to e mail me with the answer to these two questions gets a free bag:
What song is playing on that Ipod?
What is Crandall's phone number, according to the phone in the pic?
I'm serious about this. email@example.com
The belts came out really cool as well.
Dans Comp has the Draft Dodger hats and Test Pattern shirts in stock. Last Call Distribution has all the new shirts and a bunch of stuff if you have a shop and are interested in getting Deliverance product and Albe's has the Bar Bags and some new shirts in stock. Hook it up, son!
After my public badgering of Sparks and Dane, I noticed that Dane had some Deliverance stickers on his top tube. I saw Sparks the next day and he asked if I had any stickers, but didn't mention the blog. I realized too, that neither Dan Closser or Chris Hatfield really have any Deliverance stickers on their bikes, so I apologize to Dane and Sparks for not coming down on Dan and Chris as well. I guess the team is going to be me, Solan, Kelly B, Crandall and half the kids at Modern and TRP who are representing. Sparks, Dane, Hatfield and Dan are all off the team. Sorry guys.
Sparks is riding a 22 pound bike with 1.75 tires front and rear. Hatfield pointed out the ridiculousness of this in that Sparks is stronger than a retarded gorilla. Coincidence or irony? Don't carve too hard on that front tire, buddy. I love Sparks...okay, he's back on the team. Wait, Dane is back on as well, since he put stickers on. Hatfield and Dan are out to pasture. They are getting old anyway.
I got the Fitlife Video and it is amazing For real. It opens with the gnarliest slam section, then goes into part after part of unbelievable riding with very little BS. Chase Hawk is one of my favorite riders and his part is incredible. Van Homan seemed to calm it down a notch after his amazing early video parts and subsequent knee injuries, but his part in this proves that he has not let up one bit. Just F-ing going for it! Brian Foster is dear to me with his racing background, veteran status and flowing style. His part makes BMX seem like the most fun thing a person could ever do. It is, isn't it? The Edwin/Tom White split part is kick ass, Chase Dehart's part is rad and the Eddie Cleveland part is stunning. The big surprise standout to me is Justin Inman. His skills have never been questioned, but his part in Fitlife is so F-ing good! I replayed his 360 to snapped table so many times, pausing it at the pinnacle. This eloquent move is my single favorite trick in the entire video. Such beautiful style. And speaking of style, we can not overlook the ender with no surrender, Mike Aitkin. His style, attack and commitment are a fitting end to this video. Mike kills it. The friends and family part is good too, with some big moves and keep-it-real-ability of the H.M.F.I.C., Robbie Morales. Rob-O is a stand up dude and there is no one more devoted to BMX than Big Bob. I often think of something he says in Road Fools 2 when he's arguing with Rooftop "This is all I know". So true. Fitlife is the best video I've seen in ages (and I watch them all). I even made my wife watch Mike Aitkin's part...
