This year has been a weird one. Who would have thought a pandemic would lead to huge demand for BMX bikes and shops and brands struggling to stay stocked up? Despite all that madness, it also oddly enough gave Wheelies Man, the co-owner of La Cribs BMX Shop, a little extra time to actually get out and ride his bike more. That time allowed him to film a bunch and ended up with this rad new edit filled with creative and unique riding on a bunch of great spots. Even the filming and editing has a unique approach as well. If you want to see something different, this is well worth the watch! You won’t be disappointed.
“So here it is! A new Wheelies Man video part. Being co-owner of La Cribs bicycle shop for 8 years, means it is not always easy to ride during the summer season because it is an excessively busy period. However it was a special season with the covid situation, we had a tight schedule. With the shorter hours at the shop it gave me a lot of personal time that I invested in my bmx. Over 80% of the spots are bicycle distance from the Cribs shop.
Also, an interesting fact, is that it took me 2 years to think about how it would be possible to ride the module in my last clip. Until I got the idea that I was in Quebec and the snow could help me! For the special introduction, I have done everything : Original music with stylophone, voice sound, puppet and canvas painting. For the video I self filmed the majority of the clips and did all of the editing. Thanks to Arnaud P. Paquin, Vlad P. , Gaby L. and Sabrina QB for the extra filming. Finally Huge thanks to Vick from Psykiks Volts band to let me use this bad ass song! Enjoy!” – Wheelies Man
