selling my glory hole

If you’ve been looking for a chance to own part of what’s made team robot so awesomely amazing over the past 2 seasons, here it is! I’m selling my Glory frame in preparation for next year’s bike.

First of all, watch the "Count Censored" vid in post #400. Amazing. Watch it twice.

Second of all, Patrick sent you to konarider69's profile, but he neglected to show you some of the highlights. Check out these works of genius:

Well, as if the previous Konarider69 revolution in suspension technology wasn't enough, check out his eighteen link, shock-placement-would-put-it-in-the-tire, single-pivot wonder:

On a lighter note, this is the best BMX segment in a long time. Jaw dropping, good old fashioned shredding on creative, often times massive lines. NO TAILWHIPS!!!

Brian Lopes

This is actually on the Kenda Website:

"Brian Lopes wanted Kenda to make a tire that would roll fast and grip well for his style of riding: hard, fast and winning."

Yeah, I bet. Do I even need to finish this joke? Yes.

"Brian Lopes wanted Kenda to make a... that would roll fast and grip well for his style of riding: hard, fast..."

Support the resistance!

This was sweet too

Watch this. If you don't like it, you are officially dumber than Team Robot.

New Poll/Mexican TV

new poll on the right, Team Robot is considering a name change. If you have a good idea that isn't listed, please feel free to never tell me because I don't really care what you think.

Speaking of not caring what you think, you probably won't find this next video nearly as funny as I do. Too bad.

Mustaches are still killin' it

Tony Cardona in Costa Rica from Profile Racing on Vimeo.

Simple riding done well. Plus some horrific screaming.

Ground: 1, Baaron: 0

I just got this email from BMX Brad:

"I just found these sweet pics of arron messing his face up. I dont think he has seen them. hope the trails are going well.

-brad davis"

Needless to say, stoked. I think Aaron crashed at Tualatin skatepark, which is funny because Tualatin is famous for being the smallest skatepark ever. So get a cold beverage, kick back and relax as you gaze into Aaron's bloody cheek vagina. Remember people, these pictures are circa 2006, so feel free to really enjoy his now long-gone pain and suffering.



We just got our new team bikes in. We're really excited about the new Team Robot/Giant Bicycles collabo limited colorway. We've been studying colorways a lot, and we determined that limiting them would be ideal for domestic markets. I don't actually remember why we abbreviated "collabo." I think that's what Fred down in marketing recommended.

We are currently also looking for many more white parts. We at Team Robot are really excited about hunting down some more matching white parts to complete the ever-popular "white-out" look on our team bikes.

That means we are looking for any and all of the following parts in white "colorways":

shifter housing
brake levers/calipers
Brake pads
hydraulic brake lines
housing ferrules
valve caps
titanium bolts
fork oil
brake rotors

Anything else would be a big help.

On a more serious note, this Citroen is rad, even though it's only partially white. Team robot is also looking to acquire this as our new Teamrobot race vehicle.

I hate this guy so much, for so many reasons, but all of those reasons make me love this video so much more.

Sir baggyshorts McHucktoflat (real name "Psycho") totally listens to Insane Clown Posse. In my heart I know it.

The Kids in America

I had the chance to hang out with Evan Powell from (Boulder?) Colorado last weekend. Super nice kid, and he went on to win the Junior X division on a very tough, very blown Skibowl lower half. That's sweet, but what's even cooler is his senior photo.

He told me all about his senior picture, about how he took it in a fuzzy sweater with a cat. I thought, "Oh, that's pretty funny." When he said, "people will look back and think I was a rapist," I thought that was even funnier. I thought it would be a moderately funny picture.

I was wrong:

Holy shit, holy shit, best photo ever.
