The streets of downtown San Diego are littered with electrical utility boxes of various shapes and sizes. While the average person sees nothing more than mundane green shapes, Albert Mercado sees endless potential for BMX trickery. Ground yourself for an electrifyingly creative display of street riding.
Numerous electrical boxes, a metal cage, the side of a building, and more… Albert Mercado applies his GT Safe Street PC pegs all over downtown San Diego. The Safe Street pegs are 110mm (4.3") long, weigh 4.94oz./each, feature laser-etched GT logos, and come ready for 14mm axles with 10mm adapters.

For the first time ever, the pin drop totally sucked. So, after we drove out to a rural neighborhood, we re-dropped the pin, found some spots, found ourselves in the middle of a swat situation, and then rode another spot. Albert killed it! Shouts to Demarcus Paul and Tom Perry for the guest clips, too.
"When Ben from GT presented the idea of doing a short trip with Albert Mercado and Jeff Purdy to my hometown of Arizona, I knew immediately that I had to say yes. Albert has been a good friend of mine long before I was ever considered a professional videographer and his approach to riding and filming has always been one of my favorites. His unique ability to look at a spot and figure out that truly special move is incredible. Jeff, on the other hand, was rather new to me. After a bit of research and watching his INSANE Daily Grind section, I was more than excited to get started. Five days later and a bunch of classic AZ spots conquered, these two absolutely blew me away with their unmatched skill and the determination to get as many moves logged despite our short time together. I hope you enjoy what we’ve put together and I look forward to the next opportunity to film with these badasses again." - Ryan Chadwick, Filmer.
Nobody rides quite like Albert Mercado. Al has a casual swag in his riding that shines through even when he's doing odd-ball NBD maneuvers. Creativity, spot use, and one hell of an invert make every Albert Mercado section a good one, but this one is especially good. Filmed in California, Connecticut, and Taiwan.
