Atomlab GI 60



These aren’t your tradition Suspension Forks, they basically act like a rigid fork that have some give under really hard landings, pretty sweet idea so you don’t loose your pump when you hit the transition.

This is the ideal dirt jump fork, super stiff and rigid when you're flowing a rhythm section or doing tech tricks but takes the edge off really hard impacts and saves your bike and your wrists.

Winter riding

Hey everyone,

Here's an edit from our cold and icy day on the Shore.


Oh and in exciting news:

We had a meeting December 9th with the City of Surrey regarding Invergarry becoming an official bike park.

We sat down at City Hall with pizza, sodas and many different individuals from the city, as well as passionate cyclists from the Lower Mainland. In attendance were: The manager of Delta Bike Co/Surrey. Jordan Proctor, Kai Bradley, Mark Godard, Derek Kost, as well as a number of city officials including; Doug Mossey, Jeff Graham, Nadia Chan, Tinna Mack and Jay Meneely.

The City has informed us there will be an Open house held in January 2010. The purpose: To put the idea of a bike park in Invergarry up for public debate. We have a couple of small hurdles before the bike park can be built; One: An environmental assessment needs to be completed for the area. Two: the City needs to understand that bike parks need to be treated the same as skateparks.

Currently, the City wants us to form a non profit group 'North Surrey Off Road Cycling Enthusiasts' to Insure the designs, and maintenance of the new bike park facility at Invergarry. The problems with this Idea are: A non profit organization shouldn't be responsible for Insurance of designs and maintenance of a City facility. It simply does not make sense. This is especially true when you consider an equally hazardous sport such as skateboarding. Skateboarders don't need to form a non profit groups nor are they responsible for Insuring City skate parks. Lastly, a non profit group already exists in Surrey: SORCE (Surrey Off Road Cycling Enthusiasts). Sorce was offered the ability to participate in the process of creating a bike park at Invergarry. They declined the offer as they wish to continue their sole focus on the South Surrey Bike Park.

That's the update for Invergarry for now.

We are optimistic we will be given a small portion of this former construction waste dump to use as an official Bike Park. It's almost showtime! January is only a month away.

Saturday, December 5, 2009

Just a Heads Up!

Invergarry, circa 2000
We have been contacted by the city of Surrey to pursue a Bike Park at Invergarry Park in Surrey. This is exciting news as Invergarry park has been an informal bike facility for a very long time.

We have been informed this project was originally offered to SORCE (Surrey Off Road Cycling Enthusiasts), however they declined any involvement in Invergarry. We have been told SORCE is not interested in participating in any cycling projects outside of the South Surrey Bike Park. No matter, we are happy to be involved!

Just a heads up:

Our meeting with the City of Surrey is set for December 9 2009. We will keep you posted.

4x Winter Nights!

It's chilly out, and perhaps you don't want to turn yourself into a popsicle trying to hit up a night ride. Well there just so happens to be a wicked place out in Abby to get your bike on - the Pipeline Indoor 4x Series!

This Thursday December 3rd is the final practice night before the winter break! It's also your last chance to enjoy the track that has been putting the hurt on your quads out of the gate. Come January, a new, minty fresh track with new challenges will greet riders.

There's still four more races left in the series, and more people equals more fun! After the near-shameful showing the open men's class put on this Tuesday (not even enough people to run a quarter final!) I expect hordes to show up come January. I realize that racing may not seem the most compatible with the beer-swilling, Longhorn-sitting, freeride lifestyle, and you'll probably sweat and be out of breath if you're trying, but riding bikes is fun! If you've never tried a bit of friendly competition, it's well worth it.

Check the race reports from Race 1; Race 2; and Race 3, and the rules and schedule if you've never come out.

Score One For The Good Guys!

Police executed a search warrant on a warehouse in New West a few days ago, and seized a TON of bikes. See details here.

If you've had a bike jacked, it's worth checking the list in the article to see if your bike has been recovered.

Edit: Apparently the warehouse is/was BikeRescue's, a rather controversial operation that purported to work towards returning stolen bikes to their owners. While they have returned numerous bikes, they have come under fire in the past for providing an outlet for stolen goods in Vancouver.

Indoor 4x is Fun... Really!

Ok, it's wet, the snow is coming to the mountains, and maybe you're made of sugar and don't want to melt away in the rain, but that doesn't mean you can't get rad on a bike. Come on out to the Pipeline Indoor 4x at the Abbotsford Indoor BMX track. Build your bike handling skills, perfect your snap out of the gate, and maybe show off your steeze over some of the doubles.

The first race is this Tuesday, come on out and look for Kyle and Josh doing some extreme bicycle hotdog maneuvers - or maybe just not crashing.

We're gonna hook you up with a few gate pointers from 2009 4x world champ and world cup champ Jared Graves:

Skinny Tire Ryder

If you only ever pick mud out of your teeth and the thought of showing off your molson muscle in lycra makes you cringe then you might want to skip this, but this weekend was a big one for Canadian cycling on an international stage. Ryder Hesjedal of Victoria and former professional XC racer just became the first Canadian cyclist to win a stage at a European Grand Tour event in over 20 years! The 12th stage of the Vuelta a España, essentially the Spanish version of the Tour de France, saw Ryder make a last ditch attack in the final kilometer after riding with the breakaway all day to take the win.

So, get out your Double-Doubles, put on a Toque, and raise a stubby Labbat to a bright moment for Canadian cycling!

Memorial Cruise June 4th

from:
http://vancruisers.ca/
http://vancruisers.ca/Members/turkish/blog/in-memorial-darcy/weblogentry_view#1243996930

Our community unfortunately has had to send one of our good ole soul's to the cruiser ride in the sky
DarcyDarcy was the head tech and manager at Cap's in Langley. He previously had worked at the Bike Zone in Surrey for many years, where many of us had the fortunate opportunity to get to know him, his bikes, and his two beloved dogs Cali and Rocco.
Darcy like many of us, had a love for "bikeling" as we called it. He loved his years of downhilling at Whistler Bike Park, the Water Shed in Delta, and the North Shore. He shared this passion with many, which had to come to an end due to the stress it placed on his already replaced false hip; so he replaced the downhill rides with cruiser rides which began many years before on Thursday nights from the Bike Zone.
For those that had the opportunity to get to know Darcy, you learned quite quickly that there was a big heart in this tattooed full on fellow. His happiest moments were when he was surrounded by his friends and their bikes. We all wish to pass on our warmest wishes and love to his Mom "Momma Lane", his Step Dad Gord, and his younger brother Jamie.
We will keep you all posted as to details of services. Should any of you require further info, please contact George, Chopper Ron, or myself.
There will be a memorial ride this Thursday, June 4/09 7:30PM from the Bike Zone parking lot to the usual Thursday "rest areas" that Darcy loved to frequent with the Riff Raff. Look forward to seeing all!

Two videos from the Cruise, see you all next year!
