Great turn out for the Escondido Summer Slam! I want to thank everyone for showing up and making this a great event. 57 riders showed up giving it their best and putting on a great show for the huge crown of spectators.

I want to give a special thanks to Brian Itzaina with Hidden Valley Bikes/ and Chris Gilbert with Omega Bike Shop for helping gather up some great sponsors and getting tons of donated prizes to give away and for our winners. Also, I want to thank Rob Morgan with Alienation BMX for helping with the judging and donating tons of great product. Jeff Gibson also did a great job helping with the judging and shows up at the park on a weekly basis helping the young kids learn new tricks. The judges did a great job with their consistency and I didn’t hear any complaints on the results. The legendary Mike Parenti was our announcer and had the crown fired up the entire time. We had to be finished up by 10pm because of a local noise ordinance. I didn’t know if we could pull it off but miraculously we wrapped everything up exactly at 10pm.

Most of the donations for this event came from Hidden Valley Bikes, Omega Bike Shop, Alienation BMX and Vans. They were a huge part of this great event.

We also had great product donated from Fit, Premium, Haro,, Primo, Lotek, S & M, Evangeline, Mirra Co, Animal, Federal, Colony and SDSF.

Lastly, thanks to Escondido Skate Park for providing a great place to ride and hosting this event.

This is the Evolution of the Elementary stem by Odyssey that uses 1 bolt to actuate 4 wedge pieces clamping the steerer tube and the bars simultaneously. It's SIC. Tongue and groove wedges ease assembly and increase rigidity while helicoiled threads in the side wedge reduce the chances of stripping. 1-1/8" This unique design is not only one of the most functional designs I have seen, but also sexy. I love this goose neck. Testing it myself at the Clairemont BMX Park, it has been proven!

Reach: 50mm
Bolt: 10x1.25mm
Weight: 8.2 oz

Around $65 clams...
