This is the bike check that never happened for Eric Marion, shredder for the Efinger’s Bmx Team. There are many reasons for this never happened. First of all, it was the dead of winter when I asked him at a local hardcore show. So I could imagine him not wanting to go outside and take some pretty sweet pictures of his bike. Second, I am a very busy individual, I work a full-time job and I was also going to school full-time. So the only time I spent on the computer was either writing article for the website or writing papers for school, studying, and being in a documentary about my riding. Another reason was that Eric’s computer just broke. I’m not sure of the details, but it just died. So, after probably 6 months or longer, I’m not sure, here is his bike check from February 2009. Please also note, that if you go to www.efingersbmxteam.blogspot.com there is a brand new video of Eric and Dean Watson showing off their new rides.
