It’s been a little while since we had heard anything about Tom Perry. We have always been big fans of his style on and off the bike, so we were obviously curious as to what he has been up to lately. We recently caught wind that he had joined the Freed Bikes team and has been busy stacking clips for a welcome edit along with the “Likewise” DVD. With that being said, Tom recently built himself up a fresh Freed setup decked out with Odyssey parts, so we figured it would be a good time to catch up with him and take a closer look at his setup! Check out this dialed unit!

It’s not every day that we see some fresh footage of Standard owner, Rick Moliterno! In fact, it sounds like this is his first ever web video to ever surface online! Not too shabby for a guy who is just shy of 50 years young. Check out Rick getting a session in on the ramp setup in the Standard warehouse out in Iowa where he puts those front brakes of his to proper use and comes through with some dialed clips!

These videos have been making me really wish I had one of these Subrosa Street Rails! Check out Simone Barraco cooking up a few clips on it during some filming time he had with one recently!
“While Subrosa pro rider Simone Barraco was in the U.S. he got in a bunch of night sessions on the Subrosa Street Rail.
He got some wild clips Bobby Kanode caught and put together for your viewing pleasure.
The Subrosa Street Rail is available in BMX shops and mail orders worldwide now.
Hit up http://subrosabrand.com/rail/ for all the spec and details on the Subrosa Street Rail.
Thanks to Gregory Moliterno for the pic.
