Sweet rides!

For the past couple of years, we've been the bike sponsor for the Anarchy Eyewear/DAC Nissan Frontier show truck that makes the rounds to a variety of car shows across the nation including the huge SEMA show in Las Vegas.

We thought we share a few pictures of the 2009 project truck with the Haro Shift R3 mountain bike and the X24 BMX bike on it.

Check it out at a car show near you!


Best Haro V4 ever!

When Adrian Bogdan in Stephens City, VA was shopping for a new bike, some of the full suspension bikes on the market weren't all that appealing to to him. He really liked the geometry of his 2003 Haro V4 hardtail and the way that bike rode, but was ready to upgrade to something with nicer parts on it and would be a little lighter weight.

Adrian decided to hang on to his V4 and upgrade all of the parts on it. Boy oh boy, did he ever upgrade! He started out by getting the frame powdercoated white and chose to use red as his accent color. He added sweet bits to his frame like a DT Swiss Carbon fork, SRAM X0 shifters and rear derailleur, Thomson stem and post, Ritchey WCS carbon bars, a red ano Cane Creek headset, and white rims laced to red ano Novatec hubs (and red spokes!).

We're convinced that Adrian's V4 is the most upgraded V4 on the planet. If someone else out there has one that has more upgrades on it than this one, let us know!

Nice work, Adrian!


Brian Miller's shovel-slinging fun

With the trails being either muddy or covered with snow, we don't have a lot of riding content to share with you guys this month.

So what's a guy to do if he can't ride his bike? Take up shovel throwing perhaps? Brian Miller shows us how it's done.

Brian Miller takes 3rd place at AT's Showdown!

The first annual AT's Showdown happened on the 21st at the San Fransisco Bike Expo! The event was a blast, and was stacked with the biggest names in the sport including the McCaul's, Watts, Goldman, Montgomery, Bass, Lawrenuk, Gullevich, Chubey, Lunn and many more.

Unfortunately, it seemed to rain at the worst times but thanks to the course builders Greg Watts and Andrew Taylor, the Showdown went down!

The course was composed of a large drop to three big jumps, the first being 35ft! The format of the contest was an hour jam qualifier with 16 riders going to the finals. With so many great riders it wasn't long till people started throwing down including Haro's newest rider Greg Watts, who was flipping and tricking the drop/jumps all morning! After the dust settled, I ended up qualifying 3rd and then placing 3rd in the finals. So stoked, my fist podium was in my home town!

Thanks again to AT and Watts for putting on SF's first MTB DJ event.
