Decommissioning the Ares Army

I started collecting Ares Ashura frames a few years back. I've always loved the design of this frame (all Ares really). Long story short, this project started, but never got finished. It's time to clear out the garage.

The powder coating was all done within the last year and the bike was only partially assembled. Unique powder coating in that the frame, cranks and bars are not a solid green (the forks are factory Fly Bikes painted, basically NOS, with a light metal flake finish). The color goes from dark to light green and you can even see some yellow when it's under nice lighting. Very cool finish. I chose the green for the frame, bars and cranks to match as close as I could to the forks, as I did not want to remove the stickers on the forks. The powder coating alone was $100.

So, $145 shipped (to the lower 48) gets you:

Ares Ashura Frame
Fly Bikes Suelo Fork
Poverty 3-Piece cranks (unsealed BB)
Twenty Ellipse Bars (22" wide)
Odyssey Griswald Grips
Odyssey Par Ends

FlatWebTV EP12 - One year!

I completely skipped posting Episode 11, let's face it, I'm not a blogger. I spend a minimum of 12 hours a day looking at a computer screen for my job, so I tend not to want to do it too much when the work day is over. At any rate, here's EP12. Quite proud of this one.

G-Shock Contest Edit from Osaka, Japan

Not been updating this lately, but we did just finish the G-Shock Real Toughness Contest edit from Osaka, Japan. I had such a good time there. Seeing the whole format, the breakdancing battles, the skate rail jam, the MCs and was just a perfect event. Of course it was all highlighted for me by the flat contest and afterwards by the interviews with Shinichi Kiba. Such a great event.

3rd Annual Seattle Flatland Jam

Rue did it again, a very nice jam. Attendance was good with a proper showing from Canada and Portland as well as the usual Washington suspects. Very nice.

Here's a short edit I did with the help of Justin filming and my friend Mike providing the music.
