Petrol Head Friday - Looking for a Great Clip not by Chris Harris

So I've been doing the hard work (so you don't have to) and trying to find the perfect PHF clip, but I always end up with one done by Chris Harris.  Really I tried, but I don't think there is anyone as passionate about getting behind a wheel of a car than old Harris Monkey.

I will try harder next time, honest......if you don't want to see Mr. Harris thrashing the bejebus out of Porsche 962...you can check out this instructional video on how the use the new iOS6 mapping app

New vid from Ibis.


Noble Canyon from Ibis Cycles on Vimeo.
We start with a peek inside Ibis along with a quick run through a bunch of the bikes we've built in the last 31 years. After that, we quickly get out of the shop and onto the trail.
Follow Brian Lopes, Anne Caro Chausson and Andrew Whiteford as the have their way with Noble Canyon, near San Diego California.
No massive hucking (or any hucking for that matter), but a whole lot of excellent quality singletrack.

Hyperformance Hardware go BMXin'

Seth's BMX get's some custom paint for the new season.


Looks just like a normal white (with pearl) BMX bike from the right hand side.

And black on the left hand side.


Pretty trick eh?  Seth actually chose the colour scheme himself.

Seth in Action....keep an eye out for him....I'm sure he'll be going faster with the new paint.

Straitline Components - Back In....


Any colour you want....as long as it's black eh?  So we had to do a top up on our Straitline stock, seems like black is everyone's favorite colour.....so if you need flat pedals and you want them in black?  We have three options for you, AMP's, ether in limited (matte black with green graphics) or anodised black.  The Defacto pedals come in anodised black.


The Silent Guide is back in black too, 32T specific, 32T-34T or 36T+, get in quick.....I also have replacement guides in black (red, white or blue too), if you want to really murder out you ride.  50mm pinch stem?...comes in black too.

So black isn't the new black?  We can do red or blue, in either AMP or Defacto.


Hey!  Why the long stem?  No excuses now, we have stems and we have colours.....don't worry, we they come in black too.
