This video of Aitken just came up in my RSS reader. Can't believe he's already back on his bike and riding around after only 5 months. I seriously can't even begin to describe the courage & mental strength Mike must have to be able to get back on... so psyched on this!
Over on Ride US Tony has a bike check and interview up, his bike is looking dialled!
Check out the new Dig cover below, Mutiny's Hanson Little, Joe Simon and a chick in a wedding dress have scored the front cover. Inside the mag features a real good road trip from Mutiny over in the states.

Is it too early to talk about summer? I dont think so, I was in Newcastle at the weekend and it was T-shirt weather on Sunday. Session went down. So on the topic of warm weather coming on strong its time to start looking at what t's are in for 2009. Orchid range dropped here at Seventies today, its looking amazing!
Orchid ran a little pole not too long ago to ask what people wanted to see be re-issued for the special 5 year anniversary of Orchid Footwear. The shoe that got most mentions was the Van Homan Vandever V1, the first shoe Orchid released back in 2003.
They should be coming back into stock later this year so keep checking back for news!
What ever I want to do... gosh. Fun 55 sec clip from Mutiny out filming at the weekend with Hanson. In other news also check the Mutiny site for the limited edition tie dye t's.
Shadow and Orchid rider Karl Poynter has a bike check up over on RideUS. He has some sweet custom bits on there and a preview of the new Shadow coaster due sometime in 2009.
Yes yes yes, after all the phone calls the wait is over, we have now got stock of the coloured Shadow Conspiracy V2 Interlock chains and they are flying out. Contact your local bike shop now...
