    Time lapse, trail side Blindside build.

    on a scale of 1 to 10, that's was 11.5 for the fun factor.

    Time Lapse Transition Blindside Build Video - Pinkbike.com

    major props going out to Wookie, Troy and Kona with the mad camera skills.

    nice bike FOR AN XC rider....that bike isn't DH worth at all....you guys pu ssyified it ,....coffee building as DH Bike???? Don't give me any static about it being morning at all... I put beer in my cereal and cover my pancakes in beer instead of (the maple flavored beer) instead of syrup.

    When I build it is always with a beer or two and even some shots of Patron Silver. DH bikes are a rare bread. DH bikes are tough son of biatches. DH bikes like porn, crime, hookers, gambling, chasing skirts, drinking and pizza with hot sauce................

    and you guys built that bike with coffee....shame on you guys....you should donate that bike to the nuns of Sisters of Mercy. Glad you don't build my bikes

    shame shame shame....rant over

    Could have built the bike in the time it took to pack up, drive, and setup that shot. I agree all that effort and no beer makes no sense. I do virtually all significant bike work with at least 2-3 beers. Would be an awesome bike with a double crown. All that aside it was a nice montage.

    thats their back yard. Pedal shop, as the name implies, owns a bike shop. They just have to walk outside. They even have some trails right there. Since they work right there, they regularly kick it and build bikes right there. Shot setup takes the amount of time it takes to walk outside with a toolbox, spread your tools on the table, and get going.

    Since it's for a customers bike, and they are technically working, beer is usually frowned upon.

    That all makes sense. "trail side" in the woods, with a fire, and all those tables makes it seem like a lot of setup for a build.

    I love how everyone mentions the lack of beer as being a sinister crime, but fail to notice the uncut steerer. That being said, I hope I never ride any of the bikes the rest of y'all put together.
    Go ride your bike.

    yeah...you won't ride any of the bikes we build because you will be running for mommy....just stay on the xc trails, fireroads and sidewalks

    sounds like a sissy XC'er to me....

    pic 1 -- yep, that's coffee in a beer glass --- that's an ODBC glass next to the Kona
    pic 2 -- photo shop'd sure --- note what the sign says
    pic 3 -- girls on our PS/ODBC sweep a local race
    pic 4 -- PS/ODBC FR/DH jersey
    pic 5 -- ugly ass trophy we would fill with beer --- ODBC


    More of what you don't know --- in that video.

    those orange buckets you see under the boat --- they're all filled with empty beer cans or bottles.

    the rest them got melted in the fire from the night before.






    so ya'll can shut the _ _ _ _ up with your silly beer comments.


    as for the Blindside --- you're correct, it wasn't completely finished. we ran out of time... had to jet off to work.

    as for the bike that is it -- that's what the freeriding customer, who didn't want a front shifter, wanted and FYI, we were going to do the same time laps thing with a "down hill" Santa Cruz V-10 but mother nature had different plans on that one. 95% of the Blindside is totally stock. You can talk to TBC about it.

    http://transitionbikes.com/Bikes_Blindside.cfm?Token={ts_2011-12-05_05:55:00}-68003546


    Boat (table) = permanent fixture
    Fold Out Table = same as above
    Fire Pit = same as above
    Deck furniture = same as above
    So set up time was actually 5 minutes, if that.



    cheers

    thanks man...just gives me more inspiration to take my bike out that way. I have a friend that lives in Fredericks. You know if you travel to places and you get tired of winter. I have some great trails by Los Angeles if you are ever in the area. Plus you can crash at my pad. I have a queen and a big sectional couch that 2 more could crash and floor...Plus hot tub


    What exactly did you mean when you said "l have a queen"?

    tangent

    For the tangent function, see trigonometric functions#Sine, cosine and tangent. For other uses, see tangent (disambiguation).
    Tangent to a curve. The red line is tangential to the curve at the point marked by a red dot.
    Tangent plane to a sphere

    In geometry, the tangent line (or simply the tangent) to a plane curve at a given point is the straight line that "just touches" the curve at that point. More precisely, a straight line is said to be a tangent of a curve y = f(x) at a point x = c on the curve if the line passes through the point (c, f(c)) on the curve and has slope f'(c) where f' is the derivative of f. A similar definition applies to space curves and curves in n-dimensional Euclidean space.

    As it passes through the point where the tangent line and the curve meet, or the point of tangency, the tangent line is "going in the same direction" as the curve, and in this sense it is the best straight-line approximation to the curve at that point.

    Similarly, the tangent plane to a surface at a given point is the plane that "just touches" the surface at that point. The concept of a tangent is one of the most fundamental notions in differential geometry and has been extensively generalized; see Tangent space.

    The word "tangent" comes from the Latin tangens, meaning "touching".

    At this point I think SMT has more to prove than Pedal Shop. I mean I see SMT drinks light fuzzy beer and has a freezer of full tequilla bottles. Pedal Shop obviously drinks copious amounts of good beer.

    More tangent: the relationship we have had with ODBC dates back to ~ 2003 or so.

    Each season we would do a ODBC / Pshop jersey like you see in the photos above and we would sell them at both locations (at Pshop and at ODBC's pub in Ashburn where they made their beer). Between the two of us, we would sell about 400 units per year. In exchange for the PR of coat tailing the much larger ODBC's name, we'd take their products to several races every season. The SM 100 was the big one. It was pretty sweet at first: e.g. the GM would rock out 10 kegs that we could bring to the race. management changed hands a few times so sometimes the bounty we got to bring to races was sometimes cases of beer instead of kegs (full size kegs not those twinky 1/4 kegs). ODBC was eventually sold to Coastal Brewing / Fordem so the Ashburn micro brew was closed (it's now owned by Lost Rhino).
    Now when we pick up our rations -- we pick it up in Springfield VA (sorta a hike from Leesburg). New ABC rules won't allow us to pick up kegs so that sorta sucks -- some of their beer is way better via keg vs bottle (like the Oak Barrel Stout) -- fantastic from keg, so-so in bottle (due to the preservatives they have to use). It's still pretty cool even though it's an effort picking up what they give us. We actually drive into the same warehouse where the 18 wheeler Bud trucks drive into. We give them a little hall pass, they load us up... we promo the stuff they give us at races.. drink what we want -- the rest we give away to fellow racers (as long as they're old enough). Whatever's left over, we take to the next race.

    Getting ready to rock out a long sleeve FR/DH jersey. always one of the best looking jerseys on the "XC trail" so at FR/DH speed it should look twice as nice--- twice as fast down hill means it'll look twice as good.. Even though the shop colors are red-black-white, this unique ODBC/Pshop jersey looks great in that blue. And it looks really good in photos and video.. it really stands out even without blingy cameras.

    Monday's, Tuesday's are sorta my busy, get back to work, days... all of it messed up with one of the trips home from sKool, sick.

    Sometimes l don't hit the MTBR chat box as much.


    beer glasses = gottem

    Fr/Dh version of the Pshop/ODBC jersey = still mulling over adding product brand names to that black area right below the buck --- that vrs just leaving it as is and rolling with it.

    have not even dropped the down payment on the order yet.

    aka -- it'll be for sure, no less than 8 weeks. turn around time on full custom bike wear is often ~ 12/13 weeks

    here's one Pshop specific batch from a few seasons back...


    don't have any of those but they were pretty nice looking if you ask me.

    AND

    sure, we can request a short sleeve but it'll remain the same color spec --- changing the colors is considered a whole new batch.


    by the way, what size?

    this is the other version, with pockets.... ODBC's appear to be in the rear pockets.

    ha ha ha --- yeah -- 'with pockets' is sorta the norm for those custom clothing peeps and it was always designed around the mass market (aka people who'd actually buy em on a large scale, they want pockets) --- those being XC, roadie, casual riders, etc.

    FR/DH is one of the smaller markets around here -- sure, lots of little underground groups of riding buds but still, compared to XC and roadie, FR/DH is super small.


    so, ok, standing down on the search for that one jersey l know l have somewhere.
