Bombtrack Beyond: Junior

August 18, 2019

Slum and I were at the Bombtrack Groundwork event last week and there was a mass of new bikes, 32 total. One of those stood out from the rest and it wasn’t even designed for myself, or any other adult, to ride. The Bombtrack Beyond: Junior was created so kids didn’t have to stay home while the parental units were out getting rad.

To me this seems like a logical product for a bike manufacturer to create. Honestly, who’s Facebook feed isn’t filled with baby photos and announcements? We’re all getting older and starting families, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop going on adventures and Bombtrack realized that.

The family that shredz together. Stays together.

SF 2 Germany: Week 1

August 7, 2019

It’s already been one week and I feel like a lot has already happened. I’ve been spending this first week with family in Hunsrück and riding down to the Rhein river and taking in the castle scenery and long 10 mile climbs back home. The local hot loop that everyone hits up is a 38km dedicated bike path through the woods and surrounding farmland. So of course I’ve been hitting that up on days where I can only get in something short. They just had a big techno festival, Nature 1, along the bike path which lead to lots of Raver Dodging.

Slum arrived on the 6th and I’m meeting up with him on the 8th. We’ll be staying with out friend Jason until we head to the Bombtrack Groundwork event on Sunday the 11th. Last year I was able to attend for a day, and being invited back again to demo all their 2020 bikes in the forests of Breibach is an honor.

A$AP FERG X REDLINE LAUNCH PARTY IN NYC

July 31, 2019

A$AP FERG recently teamed up with REDLINE and came out with his own signature setup. The FERG X RL 275. I just happened to be in New York for the 19th annual Bicycle Film Festival, and cruised over to the launch party with RRDBlocks and the gang. You can peep that video HERE or at the bottom of this post.

I’ve never seen so many rippers in one spot. It’s like everybody had two wheels, but only needed one. Case and point, the image of @jaemilez above / to the right. NYPD shut down the street and let everyone ride the alleyway for a couple hours which was awesome. It was unnerving at first, but after a while it just became funny watching officers film dudes wheeling up and down the block. Shout out to everyone who came out to show out.

FGFS – JAOA DANAIKRIT “PORTLAND’S WEIRD”

July 30, 2019

Everything is better with friends and Jaoa Danaikrit is one of my closest homies. He’s like a brother to me and basically lived in Portland as long as we did. He’s a genuine force of positivity and an absolute pleasure to be around. We were able to create a handful of videos together while he was here, but this might be our favorite creation yet. I’ll stop talking now, press play, enjoy and as always, shout out to Jeff Osborn for the soundtrack.

FGFS PDX – JAOA DANAIKRIT

July 29, 2019

Tomorrow morning we’re dropping a new video of Jaoa Danaikrit, and it’s gunna be a good one. In light of that, we spent some time sorting through photos from our various film missions and assembled some of our favorites. I was broke off during our last Summer in Portland, so Jaoa stepped in to pick up the slack and stack clips for the both of us. He’s not the hero we need, he’s the hero we deserve. Stay tuned, we’ll be premiering the new video at 8AM (PST).

FIXIE GOON RIDE – MAY 2019 PHOTOS

July 27, 2019

Here we go again. Tomorrow is yet another FIXIE GOONS ride here in Los Angeles and this one is going to be the biggest event of the Summer. BlocBoi Fame is coming through with $100 for the winner of the Alleycat & a brand new bike (Da Goon by Throne) for the winner of the wheelie comp. Meet up at (3459 McManus Ave Culver City, CA 90232) at 11, rollout at 12:30 and we’ll figure out the rest from there. If you’re reading this and live in the area, then we’ll see you tomorrow. Until then here are a bunch of photos from the Goon Ride back in May.

Young Tool came out and crushed it like always. He’s got the meanest swerves on a FGFS setup, and has a couple extra tricks up his sleeve because of the fixed gear drivetrain. It’s always great seeing the community come together like this and a major shout out to BlocBoi Fame for making all happen. Month after month, year after year, he’s been about the community for forever.

YERRRR! We out here in NYC busting wheelies and tearing up the streets with RRDBlocks, Lucas Brunelle & Ed Wonka and a bunch of other homies on our way to the A$AP FERG launch party. FERG teamed up with Redline to create a signature wheelie boy bike, and it’s fire. Plus it’s yellow. Shout out to the Bicycle Film Festival for giving me a reason to fly out to New York. The planets aligned with this one.
