At voodoo Jam 2012 I took 3rd place in the Vet Class and one of the prizes was a $50 dollar gift certificate from Dans Comp. I knew exactly what I need because my seat post was cracked.
It was also time for a new seat. Adam DiClaudio had given me this seat a few years back and I got great use out of it but it was falling apart and there were little metal parts sticking out and the rear portion kept moving around.
I place my order in on Friday and it arrived in the mail box on the very next Friday.
I had never placed a order through Dans Comp before and I called and placed my order with Abe. We talked a bit about Matt Wilhelm and Terry Adams and Voodoo Jam. He was stoked on my placement and even more stoked that I was a older rider still out there making it happen. He then blew my mind and was able to wave the shipping charges and also threw in a red Dans Comp T-Shirt.
I am very stoked to have a new seat and seat post. I ended up getting a MacNeil 330 Pivotal Seat Post 330 mm long and The Shadow Conspiracy Crow Pivotal Seat. It was a great prize because it was exactly what I needed!
I got this great idea to shoot new film of my first session with the new seat and post. Jim Mckay had just got a new lens and asked if he could film some links on top of the O.G. It was perfect timing for both of us. I told him about my idea and he was down to make it happen.
