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.

WHEELIE BOYS – A$AP FERG + RRDBLOCKS NYC 2019

July 27, 2019

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.

FIXED GEAR LA – JOHNATHAN BALL

July 17, 2019

Johnathan Ball, better known as JBALL has been riding fixed gear since… well you’ll have to ask him how long exactly, but a long time. Let’s just say that. He’s unreal on a FGFS bike and even better on 700c x 28c tires. From throwing bar spins off rooftops to spinning fish n’ chips till your mind melts, JBALL makes it look easy.

The morning of the second Tracklocross race here in Los Angeles, JBALL hit me up wanting to ride bikes. After shooting photos of the race, I met up with him in downtown and rode around for a couple hours stacking a ton of clips in a short amount of time. CLICK HERE to check out the video we made entitled “Second Nature”.

FIXED GEAR LA – JOHNATHAN BALL “SECOND NATURE”

July 16, 2019

I met up with Johnathan Ball in downtown Los Angeles and filmed this with him in a couple hours. JBALL has been riding fixed gear for forever and all those year’s of riding FGFS makes it really fun to watch him wield a track bike. Just look at those bar spin combos and fish n chip rotations. We’ll have to get together and film with JBALL more often.

Shout out to the lvl. 9 homie JEF for making the soundtrack.

TADASHI NAKAMURA – LOS ANGELES 2019

July 11, 2019

Tadashi Nakamura has traveled from Japan to the States to stay with us on 3 separate occasions now. Each time we lived in a different city. First San Francisco, then Portland, and now Los Angeles. He’s been up and down the West Coast and we’ve filmed a video together in each one of those cities.

I’m really excited to release the video we shot for Chari & Co here in LA. We accidentally broke my fisheye on our first day of filming so we had to shoot things a little differently this time around. It was kind of a blessing in disguise really. It forced me to shoot differently and re-imagine how we come to the table. It’s important to mix things up every once in a while. Don’t want to get stuck doing the same thing over and over.

Shout out to Chari & Co for lacing us up and keeping us stoked on bikes. I’m pretty sure Tadashi stained every white t he owned by the end of this trip. What started out white would quickly turn grey by the end of the day. We had a lot of fun exploring alleys, getting sweaty and occasionally rolling around on the concrete. Keep your eyes peeled for the video piece as well as more photos coming out in the next couple weeks.
