“Here is the ultimate in complete bikes. Basically, you can say that the 2012 Forecaster Special is the most complete complete bike out there today. It comes with the real Forecaster frame, real Morning 2.1 forks and real Tall T bars. All of these include the 41 Thermal Lifetime guarantee. The list of Odyssey parts is just too long for this update, but it includes the new Thunderbolt cranks and Lincoln stem. Check the video for a full list of parts. Erik Elstran demonstrates that this isn’t just an average complete bike, but it’s a real bike.” – Sunday
Here’s the newest from the North of Ten crew featuring Erik Elstran, Pirate, Tony Mortenson, Ryan Mense, Gerry Burr, Andreas White, Kristoff White and more. Simply awesome.
Eric Holley dropped some random clips of Nick Anderson, Mini Mark, Justin Dewitt, Erik Elstran, Lee Miles, himself and more. Take a look. It starts out a little weird, but the riding towards the end gets real good.
Erik Elstran has a quick Q&A up on the Scarecrow blog. Erik is always super interesting and funny, so this one is a good read.
A few weeks ago I noticed that Ryan was over in Milwaukee. I didn’t really know why, and I guess I should have asked because I thought it was strange. It turns out he was meeting up with Erik Elstran to film for this new Osiris edit. Two worlds definitely collide in this one. Must see of the day! Banger is nut along with everything else in the video.
Here’s some footage from the 5th annual Menomonie Jam that went down yesterday in Menomonie, Wisconsin. The weather was a little chilly, windy and cloudy, but the rain didn’t fall. There was a pretty solid turn out of about 20 or so people which was rad since I didn’t expect as many people to turn out with the weather. I decided to pull the camera out for a bit to film some of the fun that was happening. Here’s some fresh footage from Erik Elstran, Conrad Heppner, Spencer Sullivan and more.
Make sure you hit that button on the bottom and turn it on to 720P HD otherwise it looks way worse than it should. The file was too big for Vimeo.
Shout out to the North of Ten crew for getting people together for the day. It was a real good time!

Yesterday, Logan Reynolds hit me up with a link to the trailer of his new video “This Is The Spot”. I was pleasantly surprised because I knew he was working on a video, I just kind of forgot about it since I haven’t seen him since we were hammering back free pitchers at Crispy’s the night before the Sun Ringle trip last summer. I’m real psyched about this video because it features some of my good friends, and a lot of absolute shredders from the Midwest scene. Guys like Jeff Dowhen, Reed Stark, Jeff K, Jon Wells and Erik Elstran are just to name a few of the stacked list you can see from the trailer. I’m not sure of the exact release, if there will be a premiere or what, but I’m going to hit up Logan and get some answers about the video. Hit up MidwestBMX.net to find out more for now.
