Peta Shepherd checks in…

Peta Shepherd is over in the Greenville right now & sent in a quick update on what she has been up too…

Just thought I’d send you some photos of the trip so far. It’s been a ball, loving it here. On the first day I got to go sky diving for the first time, which was so rad. After that I got to ride Mirra’s warehouse with a bunch amazing riders. However, I ended up dislocating one of my toes which sucked. I’m back on the bike now though and loving it.

Ryan’s out of town this week but he said when he gets back, we are going to film a ‘day in the life’ edit for us. I’m pretty excited about that.

Jumping out of a plane.

Shane Badman has been doing some filming lately & has a bunch of mini edits coming out over the next week. He goes under the knife next week to fix an elbow issue he has had for a while now.

Canberra/Sydney trip.

For the past week myself, Mick Bayzand, Zac Miner along with filmer Stu Munro were out on the road in-between Canberra and Sydney searching for spots and filming.

It was a pretty productive and fun trip besides Mick destroying both his wrists on the third day in Canberra we still got some stuff done and had a ball doing so. Here are a few random Iphone photos from the trip…

Mick Bayzand RideUS advert.

Here is our current RideUS advert that came out a couple weeks ago advertising the Teddy frame. Mick Bayzand downhill runup, over grind in LA back in September of last year…

Product highlight – Oneway Pegs

One of our very first products developed was our Oneway pegs. Back then to make a peg light they were usually made from Titanium, this made them very expensive. So we developed our pegs with the unique offset internal machining process from either 7075T6 alloy or 4140 CrMo. Meaning our pegs are thicker on the bottom where you grind & thinner on the top where you don’t. Simple but affective. Check them out in more detail by clicking here now.
