Fresh Bombtrack Build

Recently got a new Bombtrack Divide built up, so naturally I took it to the beach to take some pictures. I’m real stoked on how clean this bike looks and how dialed it feels, it’s been about 3 years since I’ve gotten a fresh wheelset built up. (and you can see I already broke a spoke) Also stoked on how these pictures came out, more after the jump.



Johnathan Ball | Feeble Stall

Wolf Drawn caught these rad photos of myself last year out in AZ at this crazy ditch spot. Photos don’t do it justice on how steep this thing is. It was hard to get tricks on but I thought about doing this pedal feeble stall on it. After giving it a few goes and falling backwards a couple times, I dialed it in for a couple photos and the clip. I love the way these shots came out.

Johnathan Ball | Tree Threader Bar

Here’s a shot of myself that Matt at Wolf Drawn just posted up from last year’s trip to Arizona. The second picture is me eating shit somehow missing my hand on the bar, then went back for it and nailed it. The drop was deceivingly big.



Johnathan Ball | To Be Continued

Here’s my latest Bombtrack webby that I’ve been filming for over the past 9 or so months. Had some more stuff I wanted to get done, but was cut short due to breaking my foot at El Toro. Still had enough footage for an edit though and didn’t wanna let it sit on my computer and get stale, so here it is. Hope you guys enjoy it.

El Toro Barspin Attempt.. By The Come Up?

I sent in my El Toro attempt to Adam22, next thing you know it’s being uploaded by The Come Up! I was in awe considering TCU’s rough history with posted FGFS videos. Nonetheless, I’m hyped it’s on there because of the coverage it will get. I was really close to getting it, but my foot gave out on the impact and now I’m bed ridden with a pin holding my several fractures and dislocations together in my right foot. The full edit should be coming out this week on Bombtrack’s vimeo page and my Youtube page, so keep your eyes peeled for that. So peep myself getting wrecked on my whole hearted attempt at El Toro, by The Come Up. #FIXIEHISTORY

Bombtrack Bicycle Co. | Global Moshpit Vol. 2

The second edition of the Bombtrack global moshpit just released, bringing together sponsored and non sponsored riders from around the world in to one rad video. To be part of a next “Global Moshpit”, send in your clips to mail@bombtrack.com. Click here to see the first one if you missed it. Everyone killed it in this video, I get stoked to see names of dudes I’ve never heard before.

San Pedro iPhone Photos

The photo quality for the latest iPhones are getting really impressive. Myself, Corey, and Penrose marched in to San Pedro a couple days ago and these were some shots Penrose got of me on his iPhone while we were out filming. All three of us are filming for new edits, so watch out for those in the near future.
