    Mach 6 Action Thread

    So let's see some action shots! No beauty pictures here. This Instagram video of a 30' step down should kick it off right

    A little more to add. BTW I am still waiting for my frame, this is one of my friends who got his this week.

    This picture does no justice to how steep this roll is. This is a popular riding area and nobody has seen someone else hit this line.

    Nice floater jump! Those steep line shots are so hard to get a decent pic without having a LOT of open area to really show the profile. Having the dude leaning against the face does help tho....

    It is a very big line. The gaps get progressively bigger down the hill culminating in a 40'+ gap for the last hit. Someone put a ton of work into it.

    I thought that gap looked big but it's hard to judge sometimes. Good stuff for sure, need a follow run with helmet cam!

    Stole this demo Mach 6 from the rad demo driver Josh... Should have never given it back. This was my first run on it.

    Killer trail and you are right. Should have thrown a bunch of money at him and then run away with it!

    Great pix! Awesome trail work.

    And I've got to say... Cool rims!

    I want to put together a rider gallery on my DR web site some rainy day... if it will ever rain again up here in Marin.

    One guy rode these same rims at Rampage last fall. He didn't qualify, and never provided good pictures as I had asked for. I grabbed a professional photo photo off the official web coverage, launching off a huge Red Bull wood ramp, which I would need copyright permission to post. I learned a lesson about sponsoring high profile riders and pro's if I ever do that again.... include an agreement requiring getting back usable promotional photos within a reasonable time period, or pay in full if past due. These rims are not at all cheap for me to produce. All proceeds are put back in to growing Derby Rims. A 26" x 40mm version will be available in a couple months or so.

    Rider support is amazing! Thank you Salespunk!

    Derby feel free to use any of my pics. Stoked on your product and I am sure there will be more sets sold down here very soon. Already have 4 M6's that have come after my frame!

    Love your rims derby, looking at getting some for my mach 6 in the near future Not sure what hubs I want yet though. I've had chris kings and dt 240 but preferred the dt hubs.

    Maybe something different next time.
    Pivot mach 6!

    This gives some perspective on how big the first jump line I posted really is. One of my buddies on his M6 is leading the train in most of the shots.

    Pretty fun place. U can tell lots of man hours and back break work was done to get that place the way it is. Looks like a big pump track.
