Our Domincan Republic affiliate Carlos Lopez recently put together this edit killing it at spots all around Santo Domingo and beyond. Some more DR action from the squad can be found in QSS #5 “The Price Is Wrong” and the DR section in QSS #3 “Foreign & Domestic”:
Luc doing his thing for Animal and our French distributor Frenchy’s
Winter hasn’t been letting up in the Northeast at all yet, so boredom is bound to set in. Steven decided to build up a new fingerboard and got in a session on it. The bathtub looks like a good fingerboard spot, though.
Any dealers located or visiting the NJ-NYC vicinity, please email email@example.com to set up an appointment to visit our new showroom in the office area of our corporate headquarters. Some photos of the showroom area:
An impromptu session was going down on the bike rack while these photos were being shot; 20 dollars was on the line if Mike Rose could 180 pegless toothpick bonk the showroom bike rack on Sales guy Chris Reyes’ bike, which has prototype Silva Nuts, in three tries. Of course Rose came through.
Jared getting in on the action; pole jam off the bike rack and over Reyes’ bike.

Farthest place this bike has been to: Nowhere; local around the shop. Not much time to travel right now. I need to go somewhere; it’s been too long. I feel like caged animal.
Best spot this bike has been ridden on? The setups at The Butcher Shop. No one seems to like my setups in here, but I love them. I love sketchy setups.
Until we get QSS #6 on DVD, The Price Is Wrong remains in heavy pre-ride rotation at our house. This team mix has a bunch of dope clips from Jeff Kocsis, Chase D, Ralphy Ramos and Garret Hoogerhyde that could have easily ripped the internet a new one on its own, so I was psyched to see Animal give this section some more shine time. While we wait ages for companies to drop full length videos and watch others blow their wad too early with web edits, the QSS series has found a really nice middle ground.
