“Mario shreds New Mexico terrain all day, all long. He just recently dialed in his new Brosnasnu Pandora with a bunch of fresh ODSY goodies so he decided to shred and get some photos with his new set up. What he didn’t plan on doing after dialing in a new bike was un-dialing his knee… Mario recently got broke off on a toothhanger gone wrong with a case of regretful footdown… Mario’s part of the knee club now and he’s now awaiting more doctor visits and surgery. I don’t know the full extent of his messed up knee but he should be back up and healthy in about 6 weeks… Get well brotherrrrrrr!” – Alex Bermudez

Here are a couple wallpapers floating around that you guys might be into.

The sprocket image has been up as the ad-spot on our MySpace page for a while now and we recently got some inquiries about it. It’s a modified version of page 10 in our 2009 catalog. In it are the Vermont and Million Dollar Sprockets attached to Twombolt crank arms.

You can catch more info about these products on the flipside or by walking to the other side of the rainbow… which are lesser known internet euphemisms for click the Read More button.
