Jake 100 came to LA and brought the crew along with him. Whenever somebody comes to town to ride bikes I always love to play tour guide. I’m still getting used to living in LA so it was fun getting to explore some new things with some outta towners. I met up with them in front of their hotel in DTLA and we set off on another whirlwind adventure. I took them to some of my favorite spots, mainly the banks along the river and the weird entrance underneath one of the bridges. After that we rolled around for a bit and they took me to the top of a parking garage they discovered the night before. A week after we filmed this I met back up with them in San Francisco where we continued the good times. Keep your eyes peeled for more media coming from that trip, and until then enjoy this video.
With the release of the recent video of Robert Gaines, we figured it was a proper time to post some photos of the man as well. I can’t say it enough, but it’s worth repeating. It was an absolute pleasure having Rob in town. He must have packed a big bag because he brought a lot of great energy with him. Maybe we’ll have to make our way to Australia to shred with him in Melbourne. What do y’all think? Should we plan a trip and make it happen?

Robert Gaines, better known as @eightyxproof on the internet made his way from Australia all the way to San Francisco to ride bikes and eat Serrano’s Pizza w/ us. We were happy to show him around the city, soak in his positive energy and Australian accent. Robert rips and I can’t wait for him to come back to Sf so we can relive the good times all over again. Press play and enjoy.
DASH 4 THE CASH is one of the best races of the year. It’s a straight shot, no bars held, race from the top of Twin Peaks to The Island at the Embarcadero. Knowledge of the city means nothing in a sprint like this. Only your bravery and ability to read / dodge traffic. Think of Frogger, but on track bikes for the entire length of Market. Anyways, Robert Gaines & I were in town to join in and be a part of the festivities.
Shout out to MASH’s very own Mike Martin & Jake Ricker for filming the event. They kicked over the footage for me to chop together into this little video jammer for y’all. Jack washed out at the top of the hill but still managed to take home the Fixie gold medal. The rest of us barely made it down the hill and across Market in one piece. I love that the top of Twin Peaks has turned into a skate haven and is grilled with graffiti. RIP Pablo. Plant seeds everywhere you go and we’ll see you at this year’s DASH 4 THE CASH.

Anthony Combs & Mike Jay. It feels like the good old days when everyone gets together in SF like this. China Banks, The Island, all of it. The vibes are good when settings like this see so many familiar faces. I swear every time I see Mike Jay he’s riding a different bike. He always did have the hottest builds, but Combs still has the highest hops. He could probably still throw a bar spin over you if you laid down. Any bike, doesn’t matter, as long as it can bar spin, he’ll huck it. Until next time fellas, let’s make this a more regular thing.

It’s the beginning of the year and Mike Schmitt & I are back at it again. This time we took things to the southern part of San Francisco where we made a lap around what used to be Candlestick Stadium. On our way back into town I stopped to get a clip on this little loading dock ramp and ran over an oversized staple. We looked up the nearest bike shop which was miles down the road because there aren’t many businesses in that part of Hunter’s Point. After a quick tube change we were back up and moving. We grabbed a couple road sodas and headed in search of a place to enjoy them. Mike filmed this fish n chips to forward wheelie combo I’ve been working on. Still gotta come up with a name for it, I’ll let you know when we do, but until then press play and enjoy. MASH STEEL FRAME.
NEW BIKE DAY. The homie Devon Lawson built up a MASH Steel Frame earlier this Summer and has been back up and rolling… On a fixed gear at least. Devon stays active on other kinds of bikes as well. He’s even inspired Anthony Combs to bring his bike up to The City to roll around with us. It’s a beautiful thing. I loved going on trips with these dudes growing up and it’s great that we still get together in the exact same way.
