Photos + Random (Terry Adams) News

So, tomorrow afternoon, Alex and I head to the Ottawa airport to pick up Edmonton's very own Cory Fester.  Then, the three of us will begin our journey to Joplin, Missouri for JoMoPro, and are very excited about the trip.  We will be arriving late Thursday night, and leaving early Sunday morning (missing the results announcements :( ), and plan on doing lots of riding and partying in between.

I'd like to congratulate Terry Adams on his recent wedding.  He's currently still on his honeymoon, but will be flying straight towards Joplin soon.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to make it to the wedding as my invitation was lost in the mail, but let me assure you, there are still no hard feelings between Terry and I (despite him not showing at CFO FU5).  Don't believe me?  Here's part of an email he sent me the other week.


First off.. I fucking love you. I text Scott this morning for your phone number because I wanted to text you a simple " I love u" So there you go.. I have a man crush."

So there you go!

Last week, while Alex and I were training at our normal spot, Leslie Johnson, a student at Carleton University, took some photos of us, and sent some of the better ones our way.  The shots were taken to be used for a recycling campaign, which is also shown.  Thanks, Leslie!

Matthias Dandois Late Breaking News

On Matthias' recent and first trip to Canada, he made a rather sad discovery. While most of the flatland community knows Matthias as the world's best rider, Alex and I unfortunately found out that dude sucks at life...hard.

That's right, on Matthias' trip here, he quickly came to realize that he is not very good at life. I will spare you the gruesome details, but trust us. See photo above to see what the bad man looks like on the worst day of his life. Superfact.

As a result, Matthias is taking himself off of A Bad Thing, Stereo Panda, Redbull, Pull In, and Adidas. Good luck to all these companies in finding a replacement...although I'm sure it won't be difficult.

PS: Stereo Panda, holla at ya boy!

New Sequence Prototype Pegs

So, for the past while, I've been testing out a new set of pegs for Sequence. If you've seen me recently, you probably noticed that they have not been on my bike, as we wanted to keep the design and details on the down low. Now, we are finally unveiling the pegs to the public, with the help of Pralex blog.

While the whole industry has downsized to 1.75" and 1.5" diameter pegs, Sequence went the opposite way and went to 2" on these new ones. The length is about 4.75".

The most notable feature on this peg is its two part design. While A Bad Thing pegs have removeable endcaps, we figured we'd go for a removeable base! Thats right, you can now take the pegs off your bike without even loosening the wheel nuts. The body can unthread from the base with the use of a long stick and an ungodly amount of force.

Furthermore, Sequence Fabrication is shutting down, after a potential law suit threat from http://www.sequencemusic.net/. Let me introduce to you the first pegs from Frost Industries!

Pralex Photo Caption Contest

So, last night Alex and I, accompanied with a few of our favourite friends, went out for a night on the town.  Like usual, paparazzi were there, and managed to snap a few not so flattering photos of your favourite Canadian riders.  We're letting you guys brainstorm captions for our two least favourite photos from the night.  No real prizes as of yet, except for humiliating Alex and I.  Don't hold back.  Post entries in the comments I suppose.  Enjoy!

In other news, Alex has developed a lisp, I might be out of a job, and Dominik and Matthias will be hanging out with us shortly.

Alex is mad sick and struggling super hard at doing anything besides lying in bed and sulking. If you're bored check out his interview here if you haven't already.

In about a week Matthias Dandois and Dominik Nekolny will be amoung us here in Ottawa hopefully riding hard if the weather permits us too before we head to Flatland Unlimited 5 that is now less then two weeks away.

There some more news on Global-Flat about Jomopro that is coming up. The A Bad Thing team will be at that contest, Justin Miller, Matt Wilhelm, Terry Adams, Chad Johnston, Ron Monis, Brian Rybak, Cory Fester and unofficial word that Viki Gomez, Pete Brandt, and James Mcgraw will all be there. This is going to be huge! Pralex team will be rolling there with Cory Fester, and maybe our photographer will have a bike built up and riding by then too!
