What the hell is Tate Roskelley doing? Well, besides sharpening his drop outs to look like really rough prison shanks… He’s stacking a clip for a video project he’s filming for. If you want to see the full animated .GIF of this trick, hit the Volume Bikes website!
Shawn “Elf” Walters has been busy collecting clips from all of the different jams that Cam Wood has been throwing at his shop, The Wood Shop, lately. Elf compiled all of the best footage into one hell of an edit loaded with good times and good riding on some creative setups. With guys like Matt Beringer and Tate Roskelley going off to some Whitney Houston, you know it’s going to be good.
The end of the year is coming up and I feel like there’s been an abundance of wild videos that dropped this past week because of that. I dug through the Daily Section and pulled out 16 edits that you definitely don’t want to miss. We’ve got guys like Brian Kachinsky, Bruno Hoffmann, Mike Hoder, Dillon Lloyd, Anthony Watkinson, Anton Arnarson, Tate Roskelley, Seamus McKeon, Mark Webb and more all waiting for you in this weeks edition of Video Recap. Let’s get into it!
Tate Roskelley sets that creativity bar to maximum for this new edit! This is what we call a MUST SEE.
“In honor of the last day of the world, and subsequently the end of the BMX world as you know it, we invite you to delve into the creative mind of Mr. Roskelley for a few minutes. From biblical water travel capabilities, to cartoon inspired banana peel slides, to tricks that arguably are achieved with a funny looking unicycle and not a bicycle…Tate is constantly pushing the envelope in terms of what the parameters of BMX bike riding actually are. In Tate’s mind they simply don’t exist, and they shouldn’t in yours either. It’s a brand new time period in Mayan history, a new year is around the corner, and hopefully it’s a time for more fresh ideas like this in BMX…go out there and get creative!

MOREEEEEEE! That’s all I was thinking when this ended. Tate Roskelley brings some serious originality to the table as always for this new promo for his signature Drifter V2 frame from Volume.
“The second version of Tate’s Drifter Frame is here with a new double butted front triangle, top and bottom gussets for added strength. a wider BB shell and pinched chainstays for more tire clearance, redesigned dropouts to accommodate a hub guard & increase peg clearance, and a lower profile integrated seat clamp area with tapered TT, CS, and ST. Check out the frame here: CLICK HERE
Tate and I put in work for a few days in Salt Lake City & Pocatello, Idaho…plus a few Cali clips thrown in for good measure to wrap up the edit. Tate is without a doubt my favorite bike rider on the planet and it’s always a treat watching him make things happen. Who knew you could pedal in an icepick grind…not once but twice!! Enjoy. -Mastroni
