Tanner Monmaney

Another edit from Tanner Monmaney and the Aloha Fixed Crew. Tanner of course has a part in BSv.4 and it is absolutely 100% over the top. In fact, we put together a very special intro segment for Tanner's edit that is without a doubt the craziest thing we've ever done in any of the Bootleg Sessions vids. I can't even begin to explain what it is, trust me when I say you'll just have to see it for yourself.

Bootleg Sessions v.4 full trailer and pre-order!

The full trailer for Bootleg Sessions v.4 is now live, and you can pre-order your copy today right here!

The DVD is completely done and will be sent on it's way to be replicated as of tomorrow. Shipping should start in mid-May.

I have to say that this is, in my opinion, the best of the Bootleg vids. Not just because the riding has progressed so much or because it was filmed entirely in HD, but also because there is so much personality and humor mixed in to all of the edits. This thing is dripping with fun. Huge, huge thanks to everyone who was involved in putting this together!

True to their word, the guys at Chrome are sending out new kicks to those who participated in the Turds for Gold promotion. Got mine yesterday and am really digging them.

Tom LaMarche in OOPM

Solid interview in Out of Print Magazine with our man Tom LaMarche. Best answer of the bunch has to be...

OOPM: What should be the punishment for a bike thief?

Tom: They should have to live in South Jersey.

Gotta love Tom, he gets right to the point. Tons of killer photos included with the article too. For example...


Lindsey from Aloha Fixed does it Hawaiian style...

Tracko on top of the world

Great photo of Tracko's Kyle Kelley livin' it.

Spotted @ Pedal Consumption.

One guess per person obviously...

Sam Miller - Grand Canyon

Sam Miller is, as everyone knows, a killer bike rider. What you may not know is that he's also a killer singer and guitar player and fronts the band Grand Canyon. Or maybe you do know that since we used one of Grand Canyon's songs ("BUI") for Sam's epic opening part in Bootleg Sessions v.2.

Anyway, Grand Canyon has a new website chock full of lots of free songs, including "BUI" and a song called "From the West Side" which I'm pretty sure is about Sam crashing his bike while riding home in the middle of the night and smashing his face, his frame, and pretty much everything else. Great stuff, make sure you check it out.

Bootleg Sessions v.4 test copy

The first test copy of BSv.4 is done! Now we will watch it 500 times and make any necessary adjustments, and then it will be ready to ship off to the replicator. Getting very close now, so the trailer will hopefully be up by next week...!

Chrome is screwed... er... very generous

Apparently the boys at Chrome bags received over 5,000 pairs of shoes in their two day "Turds for Gold" promotion last month. Wow. And it appears that they'll be making good on their promise to send out a new set of Chrome kicks to everyone who participated, at least according to their blog.

Make sure you read that blog entry. Sounds like they're going to do some great things with the shoes that were donated, not just toss them in the garbage. I gotta say that I have a ton of respect for those guys if they manage to follow through on this. They must have been freaking out to see so many boxes coming in the door. If I get that free pair, I'm going to buy another set to help them out.

A Must See

The books are solid, and the movie looks good too even though it looks like Michael Cera is playing Michael Cera again...
