Photo Description #3

The last guessing game was a bit of a curve ball with most people guessing Aaron Ross or Terry Adams. If you were to look into a crystal orb (in this case, our Twitter account would be an adequate substitute), you’ll discover they actually belong to Mr. Adam Banton. We sent him a really bright parts kit and he’s done well with them. The black makes the colors pop like crazy and his new bike is looking dope. Check it out above (photos by Jeff Hall).

If you’re interested in stalking Adam, follow him on the Twitter and le Flickr.
The read more teleporter will take you to Adam’s 2003 Odyssey video part.
His Electronical part is on the way.

We have a winner!

Actually, we have a couple winners. One chimed in via Twitter and another via E-mail. The brand that toured under the name “Unbelievably Extravagant Urban Gorilla Thrash Tour” is Life’s a Beach / Bad Boy Club in 89-90 and featured riders like Brian Blyther, Craig Campbell & Eddie Roman. I tried digging up some relevant visuals but all I was able to find was the video above from a New Zealand tv show that has some of the riders from the LAB team.

Chris is on the road at the moment so prizes will be picked on Monday. In the mean time, keep checking our Twitter (RSS). It gets updated more often than one full rotation of the Earth.

Want to win something?!

Unbelievably Extravagant Urban Gorilla Thrash Tour? What brand toured under this name? Let me know and you’ll win something. Not sure what. – CC

This was posted on our Twitter page not too long ago and we’re still waiting for a winner. For the last contest we did on Twitter, we gave out Ribcages and Tanwall tires. We still have no idea what the prize will be on this one but Chris mentioned it’ll be something unique.

Post your answers on Twitter or email them to us at:
unbelievableextravaganturbangorillatrashemailaddress@odysseybmx.com

UPDATE: By the way, the winner will need to be the first person to either post on Twitter, OR respond to the e-mail address listed above. Save your answers!!
UPDATE #2: The contest is over. The above e-mail address is now dead.

Some things on the internet

First, The Big Big BMX Show #6 is up at Vital BMX and in it, you can catch Jim Bauer, McGoo and Chris Moeller discussing CPSC testing and helmet use.

Second, our Twitter page is constantly being updated. You’ll see things on there not found anywhere else, such as Matt Beringer’s custom made guard for the Ratchet. We even recently put up a quick contest in there to win Ribcage rims and Tanwalls tires! Subscribe to the feed and keep checking the tweets.

Third, we have a few backgrounds floating around that you can use for your MySpace, Vital, blog or whatever websites you might have going on. Hit up the jump to check those out.

Too Much Information?

We're on Twitter!

I just started a rough Twitter page for Odyssey to give you all of the latest info at the drop of a Driver hat. 

Are we looking at prototypes?  Eating at Wood Ranch?  Dodging 18-wheelers with RC cars?  In a meeting?  Shooting an ad?  Designing new stuff?  Building wheels?  Learning new tricks?  Watching “sponsor me” tapes?  Admiring graphite pencil drawings of Aaron Ross?

If you care to find out, now you can know.
