Custom Skatedecks for a good cause November 16, 2015

bunches O skates

Some of the Fairdale family and a whole lot of our friends have taken part in The Project Loop 50/50 for Taylor project. The non-profit sends out 100’s of blank skatedecks to artists and Fairdale employees to paint, draw or design on. The finished decks are being auctioned online right now until December 5. There is so many great decks to check out on the site… if nothing else it’s rad inspiration to see so many interpretations of what you can do with a skateboard. Our team rider Sandy Carson meticulously deconstructed his first SLR camera, Tim Kerr honors Jeff Phillips with his deck (Tim was once a hobo in one of our videos), Michael Sieben’s work is always awesome (and he once designed the Roger Bike for us), Jeremy Hrabal helped us out many times building Texas Toast and did this beautiful inlaid board, Jim Bauer is the art director for our mother company Odyssey BMX, is a big part of Fairdale, and put together this rad core sampled board, Steve Crandal helped us out as the announcer for TX Toast and painted a rad board, Aaron Ross  has a couple Fairdales and came up with this giant skateboard/ cell phone thing. I drew the bat on a bike one here. Search around and find decks from Mat Hoffman and loads of other legends of skate and BMX. Also, tons of great artists contributed too. https://www.32auctions.com/50503 -Taj

Seth Wanders the Columbia River Basin November 2, 2015

seth main

Team rider Seth Celebrates the end of his season working for the Forest Service out of Glacier, Washington with a ride through some the Northwest’s hardest hit wildfire areas. He sent in some great photos and report…

It was mid October and as I wrapped up my seasonal job I threw on the spandex and started pedaling right from work. I had no itinerary but a vague idea of where I would like to see and at a pace that I could actually take in the sights I was surrounded by.  I wanted to see some of the effects of the record-setting Washington wildfires.  I also wanted to see the expansiveness of the Colombia river basin outside of the shelter of an enclosed vehicle.  Besides the destinations I just wanted to pedal and open the my mind.

Aaron Ross just got hitched. As a wedding present for his new wife Bethany he built this one of a kind custom painted Daybird. We love seeing folks take the time to customize our bikes. This one’s pretty over the top with even custom graphics, new rims, Aaron Ross Signature Odyssey grips, Brooks saddle, new bars and shorter stem. Thanks Aaron and congrats!

Strap your animal to the pegs, mount the pegs to appropriate sized wheels, lock the tow rope to your bike and roll!
