Mike King and his housemates decided to take a three day trip around the south of England to visit a bunch of indoor skateparks. They ironically dubbed it the Big Budget Tour while eating a steady diet of Nando’s and KFC. Check out the video of their trip and be sure to visit FFWDBMX.
Mike King just built up a new Loden V2 with the help of Seventies. He’s going to be heading to this side of the pond for a stay in Canada later in March, but for now check out what he’s riding to tide him over during the cold UK winter. Parts list below:
Frame: MacNeil Loden V2, 21″
Fork: MacNeil C.K.S.
Stem: MacNeil Top Shelf
Bars: MacNeil Tabanark, 8.75″
Cranks: MacNeil 175mm Consplined
Front Wheel: MacNeil Dub rim
Rear Wheel: MacNeil Dub rim
Peg: MacNeil Fashionably Light
Mods: Bars cut down half inch each side, steerer tube cut down, yes I do run a brake and yes I am aware it is 2013, oh and a ‘rip n dip’ cat sticker on the downtube that reads ‘C.R.E.A.M. – cats rule everything around me’, cats are sweet…
Seventies just dropped their video from their summer and our man Vince has a ton of great clips in it. It’s also put together by Mike King, so you know the filming and editing is on point! Check it out.
Our MCNLUK rider Billy Cooper just sent through this quick skatepark edit, with a guest clip from Vinny Mayne. Check it out!
Mike King, Vinnie Mayne, and Billy Cooper all went stateside in March to Austin, TX during the SXSW festival. The city faces a population explosion during that week every year, and the guys tried to make the best of the situation and enjoy the better weather. Check out the edit that Mike put together, and extra thanks to Seventies for the support.
Mike King, Vince Mayne and Billy Cooper from our UK team just came back from a few weeks in Austin, TX. While they were out there they were busy shooting photos and filming. Check out a few leftover photos from the guys after the jump and keep your eye out for the video of their trip soon.
So myself, Billy Cooper and Vince Mayne just got back from two weeks filming in Austin, how original, right? But seriously, we all had an absolute blast out there and although 50% of our time out there was spent battling the craziness of the SXSW festival (when over 250,000 come to Austin) with the remaining time left facing blinding heat, unexpected thunderstorms, campus cops and… well, hangovers, we all came away with a good amount of footage and some lifelong memories having ridden spots we’d all been seeing for years. Hugest thanks to MacNeil Bikes and Seventies Distribution! Video to surface soon.
