The guys at Sicklines just built up their new AMP and dressed it up with some fresh new Blue from Straitline.
If I was more organised I would tell you the release dates on the new AMP but I'm not. Just really cool to see more BC firms step it up against the big corps
Stick it to the man!
This is my Friday filler, watch this to the end!

The pedal is a broad as the shoe that is placed on it and we dished it... Simple.
The boring stuff:
Wide - measured from where the axle enters the pedal body to the bodies tip is
95mm /3.74 inch
Lenght- measured toe to heal where the foot makes contact
97mm /3.82 inch
Overall length including the forward lean is
111mm /4.27 inch
Pedal height at the tallest is
Pin height once properly installed rise up
Go here to watch a video of the pedals being disected and rebuilt.
And go here to see a Pinkbike blog review someone did on the pedals.

If people like BMW insist on punking me for being so godly like, then the least I can do is pay it forward!
This is what we call a humor test.
First you select a high profile rider as the victim!
Then you send a cleverly disguised package via Greyhound, AKA Canada's most welfare and very public parcel delivery station!
The plan is to make the victim DO "the walk of shame" in the most humiliating situation known to man, a Canadian Greyhound station. You could have sent it overnight on FedEx but your friends are Ghetto, and Gayhound is how they roll!
But what if it fails? First off you must Make the box big! A minimum of 15 inches by 15 square with all the sides marked. Make is so big that his disgusting private life is exposed to a crowded room. Sayings like "All Sales Final" are a great addition for believability and as shown.... highly suggested.
No matter what they say or do you know they need whats inside that box, it overrides their common sense. You just made them openly sign for a giant box of man love!
Because I am a perfecionist, I had Greyhound call him with a fake name "Pablo Berrecloth" so that the phone call starts off confusing and awkward right from the start!
Then you sit back and enjoy the moment, because you sir, have just made something special.
Welcome to the team Ryan!
I made the mistake by befriending the guys at Brooklyn Machine works in New York. It all started with a few funny YouTube links, then Luke even asked us to make custom bar caps for a bike they were building for Kanye West, things were cool! But now it has just gotten out of hand!
I receive yet another thoughtful "care" pack from Brooklyn!
Too bad I can't show you the "documentary" film he sent with the note!

But this video I really dig. Instead of magazines pitching manufacturers against each other and everyone pipe off their two cents, someone had an idea to finally pitch the magazines against each other to see who is the best! Brilliant!

Whipping the 60 ft gap after charging into it out of another cliff line!
By the looks of it you would think he was about to throw the bike, actually he is just busting a giant Superman the cliff gap.
So stoked for Kurt, probably the coolest event to podium on all year and with the level of competition having the worlds best riders in attendance, congrats.
Kurt charged his lines and almost took it but Semenuk has been dominating the scene this year, and at least all three on the podium are BC boys!
Big mountain is back!

Sam Pilgram and Amir Kabbani were our roomies during the show so check the video for the goods on what the show is like.
Check it out! Eurobike highlight Must see!
Besides landing podiums at the 26TRIX in Austria below are the boys at the Eurobike show on the podiums, Pojok took first while Sam Pilgram second with Amir Kabbani taking third. But the night before...
Not to give excuses but maybe Sam and Amir would have placed better if Dennis and I never tied their shoes together the morning of the comp! It sounds evil especially the shaving cream in the tooth brush, but they rolled in at 5am into the apartment we were sharing and started a food fight at 5am.
I picked some apples from the orchard the night before because I am a nice guy and Sam decided they would be fun to throw at me if I snored one more time. There were Apples exploding on the walls, then a bag of gummy bears, a poor plant flew more hours than it wished, ending with a chair!
I will never forget Amir saying "A chair? Who throws a chair?" then me laughing because I tend to take it to the next level at times lol.
It was all Ruedi of TSG's fault for letting us crash with them on a farm. Eurobike definitely kicks Interbikes ass when it comes to having fun.
