29th February 2012 - Issue #037

It's a leap year! And like February itself.. this issue is short and sweet. How is 2012 treating you so far? I've been getting out most weekends, whether on a MX track, in the dunes or in my backyard just messing around, and it's all good. Last weekend I was given permission to shape up a nice little jump out the back of my house, with the landlords digger. Sweeeeet. You can see the pics and some of our fun on the DBTP Facebook wall.

I encourage you to have your say on any of the pages that have a submission form at the bottom of them. It's easy to do and it helps make this site more interesting and dynamic for everyone. If you want it published as a page you have to make sure your story has a bit of guts to it though, two sentences won't cut it sorry.

If you're not overly confident when it comes to swinging some wrenches on your bike - you should seriously consider The Garage Manual download. I've created it to be as clear and precise as possible with step by step photos.

Vid Of The Month
I really enjoyed watching this. It's not all cut and edited to perfection, which is what I like about it. What an awesome place to ride. I love the sweet jump at 4 mins 40! Ocotillo Wells Freeride.
