With some rider line-up changes, riders started pouring in to the LA airport last week. On day 1; we went to the infamous Primo ramps for a meet and greet. Big belly's full of free burgers, dogs, redbull courtesy of Props Visual. Riding, 'hi my name is...' for the cameras, riding, team van burnout competitions, riding, seeing old friends and making new ones = GOOD TIMES... The team has already been to the second official stop; ramp mecca, Woodward West and are now driving around So. Cal, working their way to Nor. Cal. to meet up with the other teams at the third official stop; Ramp Rats in Petaluma, Ca on January 31'st.
The Greasy Comb Team joins the Proper Bikes, Solid Bikes, ShitLuck Clothing, VCLUB Clothing & Staff Mail Order teams on a tour around California.

"I’m on the Mega Tour with Shitluck guys so you can imagine what goes on!!!!!" Ian Morris
"Mega tour is underway...and is a giant clusterf**k as usual...there are so many riders its impossible to keep them straight...wild stuff went down at Primo and at Woodward and now the teams are out on their own.. Some going to Vegas, some to San Diego and others up to SF...should be interesting when we all get back together in 5 days...." Marco Massei
"The Proper Team will be flying out to L.A. on Tuesday the 24th January and joining Shitluck Clothing, Staff BMX, Inopia Footwear, Solid Bikes and VCLUB Clothing for the 5th installment of the Props Megatour. The idea is that we are going to keep a blog of what goes on so check back then to catch up with what we get up to on the tour. It should be a blast!!..." reports Proper's Carlo Griggs. He continues: "The only news to report so far is that unfortunately Drew Sowerby blew his ACL at the end of last year and wont be able to make the trip so our final rider lineup for the tour is: Northern John, Daniel Serra, Carlo Griggs, Gavin Shortall, Shaun Jinks, Paul Jefferies and Dave Sowerby."
