Fans of The Sword and Subrosa have gotta be stoked on this! The band and the brand combine forces to bring you a dope new limited edition complete bike thats not as heavy as the music, but will ride just as good as it looks. I got a chance to see it this weekend at Texas Toast and this thing is sooo sick. If you’re a shop that wants to carry this bike, hit up Sparky’s ASAP!
“Following in the footsteps of their branded beers and hot sauce, The Sword is now expanding their brand to the world of extreme sports by partnering with Subrosa for the creation of the “The Stormwitch” bike.

The bike features quality components by Rant and the Shadow Conspiracy.”
Colony‘s front brake wizard Bobbie Altiser just built up a fresh new limited edition Prody frame and lets the chrome shine in his latest bike check.

Only 100 of these frames were made, so if you want one, you’d better start making some moves!

JB Peytavit dumps a big ol’ bag of tricks out at a few skateparks and a set of trails for this edit welcoming him to the kunstform?! international pro team. JB looks super comfortable on all kinds of transition, throwing a ton of different whip and flair variations at will.
Augie Simoncini‘s got an interview over on We Are Orange Juice talking East vs West coast, clippin’ & trippin’ with Stranger, dodging ABD’s, doing box jump shows with Scotty Cranmer, an epic brawl with Deadline boys in BCN and much more. Definitely a good read.
“After a night out at the bar words were exchanged between Jessie and some kids. Turns out the kids and their homies were a rugby team and jumped Jessie Valpone. All hell broke loose. I seen all the crew running into a crown and swinging on these dudes. Immediate reaction was to do the same. We were outnumbered 2 to 1 easily. For every punch you threw you got hit from some other kid from the side. It was crazy. One of the kids stopped fight because he was leaking from his nose and out of nowhere JJ came and hit the kid with a dropkick like he was in the WWE.”
