Monthly Web Scour #11

A certain Chesterfield table-topper was recently heard commenting that’s it’s been a while since we did one of these articles… so here it is. Decent stuff on the net has been very thin on the ground lately, but there has been a few slabs of gold hidden amongst the digital dust and debris.

For starters, these two videos from Jake Frost are more definitely worth a watch—featuring clips from the 90East contingent, as well as plenty of larking about, tomfoolery and shenanigans. I wouldn’t want to be an old TV in New England…

Talking about Instagram and its effect on riding is a tired subject by now, but the ability to serve up a full video straight in front of people’s eyes as they ride the bus back from work is a startling development.

Whilst we’re on the subject of everyone’s favourite time-sapping app, Bob Scerbo has been uploading loads of amazing old footage into the matrix—painstakingly piecing together disparate clips of people like Gonz (the bike one™) and elusive street pioneer Wilbur Barrick, as well as sections from FBM’s The Bar is Closed.

Colombia looks pretty good.

Here’s the Ralph Sinisi/Mike Tag part from an old Ride video.

Meanwhile in Japan, this guy is grinding some very large ledges.

This Hideout video from a few months back is worth a watch.

And finally, here’s a few minutes of prime Yorkshire cruising courtesy of Messrs Fathead and Jambul. Nice to see Jim C’s cruiser getting taken for a spin.

Much more on the way soon. Red Steps 5 is done. Addy’s new video might hopefully be seen this year. Still no word on Sandy’s video though…
