WHEEL TALK WELCOMES ANDY SPARKS TO THE TEAM

April 10, 2020

Your favorite rider’s favorite rider. Wheel Talk proudly welcome’s ANDY SPARKS to the team. Andy has basically been on the team for the last couple years already, but we decided to make it official with this video. He’s played a huge part in the Bay Area Fixed Gear scene for years and is one of our favorite dudes on two wheels. Nothing but positive energy, endless flow, and a bag of tricks deep enough to travel back in time to the days of curb dogs. Shout out to the homie Jeff Osborn (JEF) for the soundtrack. Press play and enjoy.

FIXED GEAR SF – LATE NIGHT W/ YOUNG TOOL

April 3, 2020

Young Tool is a hometown hero in the Bay Area. If you know of Tool then I’m sure you’ve seen him work the bars and wild out at any given ride out or hang out spot. Jake Lanich, Patrick Curley AKA “Patrick Fixie King” & I met up with him in downtown San Francisco. The streets were wet, the air was warm, and there was hardly a car on the road in the Financial district. We took full advantage of both that and all of the glowing lights from the new bus terminal and convention center. Looking forward to this whole lockdown business to be over with so we can all attempt to get back to life as we used to know it. Times change, but the will to ride lives on.

BIKE LIFE OAKLAND – TOWN PARK

April 2, 2020

First stop, Town Park. Jake 100, CBreezy, JN, Issa & Grady met up with me at the Civic Center Bart Station in San Francisco where we to took the train to Oakland. After a few quick stops we hopped off the Bart and rode to Town Park to meet up with the rest of the crew for the day. Santos laid it down as usual, Andy Sparks gave us some of that signature flare, Gus Molina caught a quick clip and the London Boys supplied the rest of the action.

Shout out to the homie JEF for the banging soundtrack in this one, check out more of his music on sound cloud if you haven’t already as well as the new band he started “9th Heaven”.

FIXED GEAR PORTLAND – “SUFFERING”

March 28, 2020

Tyler Johnson came to Portland to ride with us the month before I moved to LA and brought with him a trick or two I’ve never seen in person before “The Deathtruck”. Locals Devin Tolman & Ramon Antonio held it down for their hometown and brought us to a spot or two we’ve never been to. If you’re ever in town holler a Devin, he knows all the best photo spots. Shout out to the homie Bryce from Belonging for providing the amazing soundtrack to this video. I highly recommend you check out more of their work, especially if you’re in the PNW and are into live music. Anyways, we’ll have to make a trip up North sometime soon to visit everyone. What do you think? Next stop Seattle?

FIXED GEAR PORTLAND – TYLER JOHNSON CAME TO TOWN

March 25, 2020

Tyler Johnson is one of the Fixie Founding Fathers and pioneered a lot of tricks that were never before done on a fixed gear drive train. If you know, you know, and if you don’t, get to know your FGFS history. There’s been a bunch of great re-uploads on “Fixed Gear Archive” I highly recommend you browse through it when you have some time.

Anyways, here are a bunch of photos I took during the filming of the latest Wheel Talk video entitled “Suffering”. I miss how perfectly gloomy Portland was all the time. It made for some nice overcast light on the days that things were dry. This was a fun day, and I’m glad TJ came to town to collaborate and capture these moments together. Until next time everyone.

FIXED GEAR LA – FIXIE OUTTA TOWNERS

March 20, 2020

These two. If you know em, then you already know. They’re pretty much inseparable, and can usually be found in front of Serranos, or at the 18th / 22nd street Parklets which have all basically been adopted as their second homes. Jake & Daniel’s fits are always dialed in and came baring some of the latest fixie drip. That new MASH SF Jersey looks 🔥. This is the first time I’ve seen the EightyXProof frame set in person. The last time Robert was in town he showed us some line drawings of it and was super stoked. I’m glad to see that one made its way into the hands of Daniel Something. If you haven’t already seen the video we just dropped of these two, then I highly suggest you check it out.
