We’re still not sure what Brakeless TV is, but we’re digging it. Here’ the full live replay from the King of the 4 Block where Nathan Williams, Brett Silva, Demarcus Paul and Poor Homie Rich throw down for $1,000 cash! The stream is a little choppy at times, but you already know these guys throw down plenty of heavy moves. Check out just over an hour of footage from start to finish with commentary from Dennis Enarson and Mike “Rooftop” Escamilla!
There’s so many crazy hidden DIY spots, it seems like there’s always a new one we haven’t seen that pops up! Our BMX dropped this raw cut from the Desert Skate Ranch where Mike “Rooftop” Escamilla, Gary Young and Jessy Twin got to session the pool and crazy transitions all throughout. This looks like it was a ton of fun to ride. Hit play and take it all in!
“When Rooftop texts you about going to ride a park in the middle of the desert, you jump in yer car and you make that three hour drive. I must confess that I was really hurt during filming this, so the video could have been a lot better…but it is what it is. I was struggling. Shout out to Desert Skate Ranch for letting us come out. Really want to come back out now that I’m healthy.” – Our BMX

Check out the Caveman V2 frame from United!
It has been a bit of a dryspell as far as new and interesting products go lately. We haven’t seen anything too exciting as of late (at least that we have been tipped off to) and it’s good to see something pop up for a change! United have announced that Mike Escamilla‘s signature Caveman frame has been brought back by popular demand for a limited Caveman V2 run! Much like the first version, this frame definitely stands out from the norms of 2020 and has a throwback look to a classic Wilkerson Airlines frame from way back, and it looks awesome. Check out the specs, details and more photos below! We will point out that this frame will be available for PRE-ORDER TOMORROW, SEPTEMBER 23rd with delivery coming in November, and a price tag of $581.32. Steep, but the collectors out there will love it. You can pre-order the frame here — United Website.
