Two weeks ago I (Louis) took a trip to York, PA to experience my first official York Jam. As a flatlander it is one of the things you're supposed (unofficially) to do, go to a York Jam. Why is the York Jam important? Well for one thing it's where the Dorkin' In York series originated back in 1988. Kevin Jones and Mark Eaton came up with the idea to make a BMX video with the DIY sense of style. There are ten videos all together. They were a mixture of flatland/street/vert/park/dirt, you know name it, it was in there. I'm only 24 and I have watched these videos almost religiously. I was introduced to Dorkin' In York by my friend Rodney Moreweiser when I was 17 and I've been hooked ever since.
Kevin Jones is basically the guy who invented modern flatland. He was away ahead of his time and still is to this day. A lot of flatlanders have gone to York ever since they started having the York Jam back in 1991 and I felt like it was time for me to finally go to an official York Jam. I've been to a fall York Jam, but it just wasn't the same.

Alex recently went under knee surgery and is resting with his time off. So I thought why not shoot him an e-mail and see what his set up is like these days. He's got a super clean ride and has been running a freecoaster before it became the latest fad. Check out the parts he is riding after the jump.

Shields Skatepark in Flemington, NJ is no more. Its a sad time for us Efinger guys, but thankfully our head mechanic and master wheel builder, Dustin Farnum, came out this summer to take some great pictures of us riding. Check them out after the jump.

Third in line for our bike checks is Trevor Carlton. Trevor keeps the theme going of riding a Kink BMX frame like Nick and Kyle. Trevor can also do back flips. Find out what parts he is running to help with the back flips.
