Keep that wheel up! BLOC BOI FAME always brings the heat when it comes to these monthly ride outs, but this one was above and beyond. Riders from all over California met up for this get together in Los Angeles. Bloc threw an alley cat, a trick comp and served up food for everyone in attendance. It’s really great seeing the community come together like this. Check out more photos below.
Alright, this is the moment you’ve all been waiting for. WHEEL TALK DECALS are officially available to the public. We’re mailing these things world wide. Shipping is free and we’re packing the envelope full with any extra fixie stickers we have on deck. Head over to our WEBSTORE to see more, and pick some up for yourself.

FIXIE GOONS Ride Outs are always a good time. If you’ve never been to one, I suggest you mark your calendar and come out. They happen at the end of every month here in Los Angeles. Bloc Boi Fame leads the pack and wrangles together the crew. Which usually turns out to be a couple hundred people. All of which are more than decent at keeping that front wheel up.
Terms like “Don’t panic” & “Keep that wheel up” are often hollered throughout the pack.
Follow @BLOCBOIFAME for more info on the next get together.

Who else remembers or even better, owned a TRK at some point? I remember when Leader Bikes first came out with this frame. It was everybody’s dream bike that year, and the paint job on this one truly makes it one of a kind. I like the big LA cutout on the head tube.
At the end of a long day, there’s nothing better than finding a good old parking garage with roof access. We linked up with a few friends in DTLA and did exactly that. Willy showed up with this KONA he just started riding. He’s already standing on the saddle, kicking legs, riding manuals on the chain stays. The kid’s wild.

All’s well that ends well. Sam Allgood the “@FIXEDGEARGOD” came to Los Angeles the day before I left for Germany. I was hoping to have more time to hang out and ride with the man, but had to settle with a single afternoon of fun in DTLA. The shirtless photos of Sam were taken the day before he got the word FIXIE blasted across his chest. Click here to see what I’m talking about if you haven’t already seen it for yourself. Now that’s what I call dedication.
Sam has been in the Fixie game for as long as I’ve known about it. Even going as far as to film some of the riders I grew up watching. He always keeps a camera on him and his YOUTUBE CHANNEL makes it feel like you’re hanging out with the man. Check it out when you get a chance and until then there are more photos below.

We’re always looking for a new roof to ride on and lucky for us Portland’s downtown is packed full of empty parking garages. All of which have an elevator that takes you straight to the top. Ideal for most hang out situations, we highly recommend you check your local listings and find a parking structure near you. Just because it’s built for cars doesn’t mean we can’t have our fun. Check out more photos as well as the video from this day below. As always shout out to JEF for lacing us up with the soundtrack, which is listed down there as well.

Filmed on location here in Los Angeles, I took Tadashi Nakamura on a 3 day tour of the town. During which we filmed this Fixed Gear Freestyle jammer for Chari & Co. who continue to bless us with the fresh gear and positive vibes. Tadashi Came all the way from Japan to ride bikes and have fun. Here’s a look at his last few days in LA before flying back home. Until next time Tadashi. MUSIC: JEF – Float Tank
Tadashi Nakamura & I linked up with Marco Marquez and some of the other homies in Culver City and rode around for a bit. I’m always caught off guard by how explosive Marco’s riding style is. It’s unbelievably snappy and every trick is as textbook & tucked as it can possibly be. He took a little bit of a tumble hucking 180s over this blue brick barrier. Landed it clean the first few times for video, but slammed once we tried to take photos of it. It’s funny how that works.
Anyways, shout out to CHARI & CO for keeping our dude Tadashi freshly clothed so we had a reason to film for something while he was here. Keep your eyes peeled for that coming at ya real, real soon. More photos below.
