Dig, Mutiny, WTP, etc...

First up was the most shocking bit of news today (Well, I say "shocking", the world hasn't exactly stopped spinning) - Morgan Wade is off Mutiny. I guess it kinda makes sense with how their team's shaping up, but still, he's been there for 8 years which is a pretty long time. They've got a bit of text up on their site about it (click here for that), which essentially is a "Thanks dude!" "No, thanks to you!" thing.

Also on their site they mentioned their '08 Webvid - well worth a watch! Here it is in SB, click "HD" to go check out the... well, HD version of it on Vimeo.

Wait - what?), a link to a cool BMXFeedesque iPhone app, and a reminder to me to post the link to the Boxed Wine Fiasco blog JPR (Of FBM) has setup - and also the news he's now on the Dig staff to do a column each issue by the same name.

I like WeThePeople. I also like my A2B, and I also especially like the new colour for the A2B:

Speaking of buying things - if you're tempted by the Fly Fino grips, the Eclat Complex seat/post combo or the Tree frame, but need to be reassured about their positive qualities in a soothing American voice, click Here to see Vital's Gear Guide.

Very lastly, 2 hour shark/man combat makes trying to learn a new trick seem relatively tame. Apologies for linking to the Daily Mail...
