It’s always rad when the filmer and editor for a video can also produce a rad full section for a DVD. Bobby Kanode had double duty for his “Mediocre At Best” BMX video and it turned out so awesome with his creative style. If you’re feeling Bobby’s section the entire video can be watched RIGHT HERE!
Did you catch the full Mediocre at Best DVD that dropped online a little while back? Well, for some reason Aaron Maxwell’s individual section never made it online until now! Check out what Aaron cooked up for the BMX video and then hit that link above for the full video if you want more!
“Aaron was the secret weapon for this video. He’s so low key all the time but when he gets an idea in his head for a roof he’s gonna jump off, there’s no chill. One of the most laidback hammer setup based riders out there. Also an incredible tattoo artist. Follow him on Instagram @aaronmxwl … also follow @mediocreatbestbmx please.
BIG UPS TO A-MAX”
The Gully Factory and Mediocre At Best guys decided to throw a Halloween Jam out in Arizona and it looks like they got a big turn out! Check out this video giving you a look at what went down with riding from guys like Timmy Theus, Simone Barraco, Tony Malouf, Jeff Wescott, Josh Eilken, Ryan Chadwick and many, many more!
“Bobby Kanode texted me one night saying. “Lets throw a halloween Jam and make and edit. Costume required”
I replied a few hours later with a flyer and the 1st Annual Gully Mediocre Costume Jam was born! We were more then pleased with the turn out. Thanks to everyone who came out!
Street Fighter 4 Jam this coming saturday November 1st, 2:00pm in Phoenix

The crank flip wizard, Joey Motta, cooked up some incredible footage for his section in the “Mediocre At Best” DVD. Now it’s online for your viewing pleasure. Hit play to see some crazy clips!
“Joey has a way of making everyone around him feel good. Best human I know.” – Bobby Kanode
Although the full “Mediocre At Best” DVD is now online, it’s still good to see the sections one at a time! Bobby Kanode just dropped Lahsaan Kobza’s section online to celebrate his birthday the other day! Take a peek!
“Lahsaan Kobza moved to Arizona a few years back, and he and I have been working together non stop ever since. He’s by far the most motivated and productive dude on a bike in Arizona. Did you know he filmed 3 full DVD sections in one year? His birthday was yesterday (23) and I decided its time to put his section up on its own. He was a big supporter of this Mediocre project from day one, and he even got Mediocre tattooed on his chest. Its really difficult to know him and not love him. So hit play and watch him do what he does in the streets of AZ!
Mediocre at Best, bitch.” – Bobby Kanode
After a few weeks of the sections being dropped online one by one, the entire Mediocre at Best DVD is now online in full for your viewing pleasure! Enjoy!
“Phoenix is a magical place that I end up finding myself stuck in for a couple weeks a year. The people are down for anything fun or destructive, the spots are plentiful, the girls are weird, and if it’s hot, you just go sneak into a hotel pool. The riding scene there is diverse; little cliques of riders all have names for their groups of friends and yet there’s no qualms about getting together and seemingly no beef over random BMXness. The scene is tight and now Bobby Kanode has finally released Mediocre At Best that, despite the name, really does the scene proper justice. A great feel—one that can come from a labor of love—and tons of amazing riding ranging in all types, just as you’d expect from a scene born and bred on The Gonz and Ratboy.
