Keeping Up!!

Its been a rough couple of weeks. Between illnesses and the shop being busy its hard to keep up with everything. I'm trying my best to stay on top of things. I neglected the last week of "March Radness" so I'll start with that.

When you look this good its hard not to be "Rad" , the last week of March Radness goes to "Hurricane" Cody Diggle!! Cody has been getting rad since birth.
 Be on the lookout for a Scituate vs Circuit 3 on 1 Cage Match this summer!!

(Submission by Bobby Proctor)





We got some Gully gear in the shop. When Tony Maloufs not hucking himself of a roof or singing a classic rock songs he's cooking up some Gully Factory shirts and goods. Swing in and grab yourself a new T'shirt!!


 Finally!!! FBM Black Flag Bars are back in stock. These U.S. made four piece bars have been hard to get and keep but we have a few in so come pick up a pair!! Restocked on Blackheart grips and seats also!!

These look awesome!!  Eclat Kolibri Oil Slick hubset is here but not for long??



We The People is making it easy to carry your tools with  you. The Smuggler seat is the true fanny pack!! You can put what ever you need in there and the WTP socket seat post has a built in 17mm wrench for easy wheel removal.


























We have lots of new items in the shop and more arriving daily, it is spring after all!!

If Mark D were a horse in a race I would pick him. Not because he would win just cause he looks the gnarliest!!

Back In Action!!

After being off my bike for a solid month I started to feel like I was losing it, but it only takes one session to bring that love I've been missing back. Thank you BMX!!

We have a couple of Jams planned for the spring months(April-May) so I hope to see everyone out there. We also have a couple of bicycle festivals that we we will be a part of in May. I will have info on those up soon.

There are lots of new items that have been rolling into the shop the past couple of weeks. Check them out!

The new Shadow Valor Tires might be some of the grippiest tires out there.These are the perfect tires for the parks and the streets.  We have them in 2.4.


S&M Wide Mouth Forks are back in stock. These are designed for the wider tires out there(2.3-2.4) and have a thicker dropout with a smaller cutout. Essentially better for grinding.


I've always been a fan of the sprocket guard since I had a Threshold a ways back. Here is Subrosa's offering. The Magnum Sprockets are built to take some serious abuse and might be the only guarded sprocket that take a Half Link Chain!!


The 2014 Spring Loteks are in the shop!! These shoes get better and better and I havnt heard one complaint on them in years. If you purchase a pair of these you can get last seasons half off!! The new soles are well designed to grip and the heel has a built in brake pad. Genius!!



If Zack's not out Kicking Bass he's out doing No Handed Tire Grabs!!
We might have a Mini Marley on our hands!!

Your'e really bumming me out lady!! If you can sneak in that one warm day a week we'e been getting with some outdoor riding your'e lucky and I envy you.

Nothing feels better than a new bike and we are fully stocked on the best brands in the complete bike world right now. We just refilled our floor with 2014 Fit Completes from the entry level line to the top of the line.
Check out our complete bikes page for details of whats in stock and what we offer with every complete bike purchase. For now here are a few pics of whats new on the floor.

The 2014 Fit Mac 2 is one of the raddest looking bikes this year. Simple but sharp looking! $469.99

























The Benny L 2 is another one of Fits 2014 bikes that really stands out. $469.99







It's never to early to get on a BMX Bike This Fit 18 inch is the perfect bike for a 6-10 year old to start shredding.$379.99






The Fit Dugan Signature is whats up!! Stacked with after market parts and priced at $669.99. This is a bike that any experienced rider can hop on and feel comfortable riding.























Trail season is right around the corner and this set up is screaming "take me to the woods". The S&M CCR in Camo is looking right. They only powder coated 14 of these Camo CCR frames. Bikes like this should come with shovels!! We have the Credence Stems and Credence bars in the shop also.

Radness Week #2.

Im a couple of days late on posting this one.I feel like everything is gonna be a little late this season. Especially spring!! Mid March in the mid 20s-30s, Im not having it. This Saturday is the first day of spring so lets hope we see that warm up soon.

So here is this weeks taker. Its Derrick Gabbert with a huge quarter to vert wall transfer at Edge. Knowing the way that Derrick rides and goes through parts he could definitely use a $20 shop credit.

Here are a few more submissions from this week. I like them all!! Keep them coming guys/girls, only 2 weeks left!!

Matt(Eric/Sweeper) has a problem! He cant keep his limbs on his bike, but I think this one hander at Killingly was intentional?? Photo by Swellbow??



Not sure who took this photo but Pickett sent it in. FBM warehouse jam. Circuit Jerks on deck with a Hoey.


























This is my friend Scott. Scott and Stan the Man(his dad) took me to my first BMX race in 1988.

Radness Week #1.

I'm a sucker for sunsets, ask CODY. That's why I'm giving this weeks March Radness to Tyler's sweet one footed tabe shot and an even sweeter Pawtucket sky!!
























 Really psyched to see whats coming next week. I hope you guys were able to get some riding in this weekend. Lets see some new photos that you haven't posted on your Instagram or Facebook.

Here are a few photos that were submitted that are rad. Thanks to everyone that participated this week and dont be shy to send more in next week. Please only send one per person. 


I grew up throwing my bike into this fence and I'm glad its still up and being ridden. If you're ever looking for  Fall River Spots Chris Durand would be the perfect tour guide. If you can keep up with him!!
(Photo-Candido Teixeira)



























Pretty sure Scott was watching the Matrix right before this photo. Then he went to Paw Park and channeled his inner Neo. (Photo-Kate Neal)I'm assuming?





















Last one is the gnarliest one!! Derrick Gabbert aint scared but you already knew that. Blasting the unblastable.



























Thanks again everyone!!!

Live To Get Radical!!

This past weekend 11 of us made our way to upstate NY for some fun. Our first stop was Cranx Bike Park in Syracuse N.Y. This place is a good time and its only a 5 hour trip with plenty of hotels in the area that a bunch of smelly dudes can lay their heads down. We rode for 5 hours and I took a couple of photos.

Here is one of Jee-Pee living to get radical!





Ray is the dude that seems to be a local where ever he goes. To say he tore that bowl a new one is the truth.
He turned it down and up!!


We made our way south to FBM Headquarters where we hit up the new warehouse ramps,ate pizza and watched John Corts and Dylan Cole tack an FBM Frame together in the FBM Shop. This is what BMX is all about. Supporting the brands that actually make a difference in the industry we love. BMX would suck without FBM!! Thanks to everyone that makes FBM happen!!
We have Steadfasts and Orphans in the shop now and more FBM Frames on the way!! We also have all the spring softgoods on the way!!



Speaking of awesome stuff, we are putting our order together for the next run of Circuit Anchor Frames. If you are interested in riding one of these hit the shop up. We have 4 left on this order. Here is the geometry.
HT 74.5,ST 71,Standover 8.75, BB 11.5, Rear End 13.75.

The Dialer!!

Its never easy losing a friend. Never mind someone you've spent countless hours traveling, riding and dialing with. Its still a tough pill to swallow knowing that Kyle Amidon isn't on this planet anymore. He is missed dearly and I will think of him every time I pick up a shovel and move some soil. Kyle has been a part of Circuit since day one and will always be in our hearts. We miss you buddy!!

Here's a collection of photos I've taken of Kyle over the years.

I think this is the first year we had Bernicky running. Kyle spent the summer out there dialing it in.



Halloween in Providence 09. This is Lyle and Aggro-Emerson of course..


Summer of 09 had to have been one of the best. Every night was a Saturday Night!! Kyle getting sideways on Mainline.


Another Bernicky shot. It was the Dialers favorite line.


There will be a Benefit Jam at the "Barn" March 1st. If you knew Kyle and considered him a friend than please attend. All the proceeds go to a fund for his daughter!!

Dudes In The Woods!!

That could be a title of some shitty Skinamax B Movie but instead its a daily ritual from spring until fall every year of my life. Here are two edits of the trails that will hopefully get you motivated for spring and maybe light a fire under your ass to pick up a shovel.






We have some sales going on for February and a park rental. Stay tuned!!

Chasing Summer!!

Traveling and BMX go hand in hand.You can pretty much go anywhere in the world with your bike and make some new friends. Ive been doing it almost my whole life and it never gets old. Grab your bike and go explore. There may be a language barrier but everyone understands a high-five!!

We just got back from Puerto Rico and the trip was amazing, we made new friends and visited old friends.We were able to travel a good portion of the island and had the opportunity to meet and ride with a solid crew of locals. They took us in with open arms and showed us some good times and true hospitality.

Thanks to all the San Sebastian locals especially Vlad, Pichy and Tongo for the peanuts!!
And of course thanks to Carlos for keeping us laughing and Evan for kicking ass in general!!
If you're looking to go to PR don't hesitate, its worth the trip.


Here are some photos from the trip. Since its so cold out I hope these can warm you up just a little.

Nick met up with us the first day of the trip. Heres a shot from our first night in San Juan. Dudes always bringing the good vibes and PR wouldn't have been the same if he wasn't there.
Vert Wall shimmy at Tres Palmas.



I had a loose travel plan and wanted to view some sites. Mission accomplished!! We hit everything on the list in a matter of days. This is the Window Cave in Arecibo. Crazy view but scary as "F". 1000FT drop.













This is a portion of the San Sebastian Crew. We were exhausted from driving and riding all day but when we got to SS Skatepark these dudes were so welcoming and genuine that we got right back on it and cruised with them. Thanks guys for keeping my old bones moving.

















Pichy and Vlad took us to their local jungle paradise swim hole. A far cry from our Carrs Pond or Cumby Res. Pickett about to do his signature "back flop rope swing plunge".



















Mrs. Jemeniz (Pichy's mom) went all out and made us a Pasteles lunch. It was the best meal we had on the island and we will all recall it for months to come. We couldn't say "Thank You" enough..



We made it to Quebradilla Park with an hour of sunlight left. We made the most of it but you really need a couple of days there to enjoy the park for what it is. Next time Quebradilla!!


Hopped on the ferry to Culebra Island to sleep on Flaminco Beach for the night. It was well worth the trip, plus we got to witness an epic moon rise..

















Nick absolutely killed it the whole trip. Classic tabe on the last night in San Juan at the D.I.Y spot.
Ride or Die Inside!!






Its back to business here as usual. We will be hosting a Feburary park rental at Rad Skatepark. I will have the date up soon. In the meantime stop in and say hello!!
