New Odyssey Fork & Sprocket

Director Fork
After a brief glimpse of Odyssey stuff flying around on the forums, the guys at Odyssey have released some concrete details of their forks and a new sprocket!

I have to say, my first impression of the new Director Fork were pretty fugly. But I think I've changed my mind pretty quick! I won't regurgitate what they've already said but Odyssey are one of those companies that actually design things for a reason rather than just making whatever looks good (which is a bonus). Here's the link :

Million Dollar Sprocket
The Million Dollar Sprocket is looking a bit heavy duty (and drool inducing for all the hard core street dogs out there).

Slosh turns to the dark side

Can it be true? Can it really really be true? Is Slosh really running a gyro? I think he's been hanging around Tony too much. Wot next eh? Will he be putting on some death sticks? Is it too late for him to come back from the dark side? Stay tuned...

And here's the link to his post on the WTP forum :

More YouTube - Scotter Cranmer and Rainbow

Spending far too much time on YouTube. There's just so much random stuff on there... from totally jaw dropping, to totally not-an-ounce of common sense stupid (but ridiculously funny) stuff. I'm just addicted. It's got so bad that I'm now getting withdrawal symptoms if I don't get a fix every couple of hours! Haha. Not really. But you know what I mean, especially all those MySpacers who are reading this!

Anyways, bringing you 2 more clips found by the Pijin staff.

Carlos found this one of Scotty Cranmer's run at the San Jose leg of the Dew Tour. He told me he "creamed his pants" when he saw it! I won't even attempt to describe it - watch for yourself.

J.P. found the 2nd clip. If you're from J.P's or my generation, you'd remember a kiddies TV show called Rainbow (yes, I am that old). I used to watch it on TV... but did they actually air this episode? Hilarious...

New parts unveiled at Interbike

Haven't been doing my homework lately so I'm a bit behind the times. Anyways, this week, Pies got beaten by James in spreading the word on the latest news in shiny BMX parts. It's the Interbike show and the big guns in BMX have been show casing lots of new products. Some are pretty damn tasty, some are just plain fugly!
