Our buddy got his Breezer Lighting out of mothballs and turned it into his winter bike this year. Every time I see it, I get stoked. It’s a stone cold classic.

Buffalo Dave’s Bandit Cross Photos

Last Friday’s race was the shortest heads up in Bandit Cross history.

On Thursday Baroo and I were tooling around the woods down there, and the desire to race swept over. After all, I had no plans for the next night. I put out the call, and around 10 racers showed up, with about 6 additional spectators.

The thing about Bandit Cross is that it always just seems to work out. In spite of the small crew, the racing was a ton of fun and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend an evening.

Luckily Buffalo Dave was on hand to grab some photos. Check it.

Peacock Groove: Electric Hell

by Jeff on April 6, 2015

For the second part of this series, let’s take a deeper look at the Electric Hell bike.

Of course, with a paint job this wild, the intended owner could only be Erik himself. It’s fucking ridiculous, yet somehow manages to perfectly walk the line between clown bike and tasteful. It shouldn’t work, I should hate this bike, but I can’t help but love it.

I will say one of the things that does frustrate me about Erik’s work is that he goes so crazy with the paint, that at least in the case of his show bikes, it over shadows the fabrication. The paint being out sourced, and the fabrication of course being his own hand. I will say though, that in his customer bikes, the paint tends to be much more muted and typically lets the construction stand out.

It’s also a bit of a shame that this wasn’t shown as a complete, but it just didn’t come together in time.

That said, holy shit is this thing amazing.

I always get pumped to start the week off with something from local hero Erik Elstran. This Monday, how about a two-fer from one of the most creative riders in the game today.
