WHEEL TALK – PLUS ULTRA

June 11, 2020

Who doesn’t love leftover pizza. The team really came together for this one, like knights of the round table. Actually this is just a bunch of clips from 2019 that didn’t make their way into other videos edits. I knew there were some extra clips floating around and I’m really glad I went back through to see what didn’t make the first cut. Check out nearly 50 screen shots as well as the custom soundtrack to the video below.

MASH SF + KOSUKE MASUDA HAND ENGRAVED STEEL BUILD

June 5, 2020

I hang out around MASH a lot when Im in San Francisco. One of the last times I was in town I had the honor of photographing this one of a kind love boat in front of the shop. The closer I looked the more impressed I became at the sheer level of detail. Every nook and cranny had a hand engraved element. Most of which felt very fluid and natural. With themes of foliage and water peppered throughout the line work, this bike is truly unforgettable.

THIS BIKE IS CURRENTLY FOR SALE. CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS.

Kosuke Masuda – or simply Ko – is Shingon monk who lives in Yokohama Japan with his family. Ko has been exploring engraving on bike and bike parts as an artistic medium. His work is astounding anPd is on full display with this complete bike. It is the only bike of its kind and a magnificent piece of art.” – Insert courtesy of MASH SF

LOS ANGELES – GEORGE FLOYD PROTESTS MAY 30TH 2020

May 31, 2020

Everyone look out for one another. We could all be a little more kind. A little more patient. A little more understanding. The world is watching and it’s up to us to decide how we heal from here. LA is still under lockdown and the National Guard is set to arrive in the next two minutes (Midnight May 31st). What happened in Minneapolis to George Floyd is unforgivable and it’s a tragedy that we need to address. There’s good in all of us and I hope we can all see that in each other. Let’s protect one another, our communities, our families and look out for those who can’t. We’re stronger together.

FIXED GEAR SF – IT’S REGULAR

May 27, 2020

“IT’S REGULAR”. Just another day in the neighborhood. Slam Dunk Ernie & I met up with Jake Lanich & Andy Sparks in Downtown San Francisco to ride bikes and do what we always do. We hope that everyone can get back to doing what they love with the ones they love doing it with again in the near future. But until then, here’s a day video of some of the good times we share together on a regular basis. Check out the songs I made for the video below as well as 40 different screen shots. What do you think? Same time next week?

FGFS CULVER CITY – MARCO MARQUEZ

May 26, 2020

Marco Marquez has been flying under the radar for far too long. It wasn’t until I moved to Los Angeles that I really had a chance to ride with the man and let me tell you. He has one of the most explosive riding styles out of anybody I’ve ever seen ride FGFS. I’m talking double bar spins, 540s, wheelie 3’s. Tricks that are unreasonably difficult to do.

A couple days ago we linked up and rode a couple spots on the outskirts of Culver City. For those who don’t know where that is, it’s basically an imaginary city in the center of Los Angeles where a bunch of Movie studios are located. I think it’s a tax thing. Idk, who can tell. If you know more than me, please reach out and fill me in, I’d love to know more. Anyways. Marco is rad and we’ve been stacking a ton of clips in the last week, so keep your eyes peeled for a video of him tearing up LA. (Culver City to be exact) Haha.

EVERYTHING’S BEEN DONE – FEATURING MATT REYES

May 25, 2020

I speak fixie better than english. Dustin convinced me to speak on camera which is actually pretty rare. I’m in front of the camera occasionally, but I’m always riding a bike which makes it a lot easier. I recently spent an hour with Dustin Klein on his Podcast “Everything’s Been Done” and talked about the past, present and future.  If you’re into long form conversations and got some time on your hands, then perhaps this video is for you. Shout out to DKLEIN for hosting me on his world renowned talk show, I look forward to more chances to hang out and chat. Until next time. 

FIXED GEAR SF – MUSGUARD SEASON

May 24, 2020

You know I keep that MF thang on me. Musguards that is. When winter hits in San Francisco, keeping a pair of fenders on you is crucial. My favorite part about the Musguard system is the convenience of rolling them up and storing them in your backpack when they’re not needed. The rollablity and small form factor make it easy to keep them on you at all times for those “just in case” type moments. I used them 9 months out of the year when we lived in Portland and bring them with me whenever I travel. They’ve saved the day more times than I can count.

Jake, Daniel & I recently dropped a video of us putting them to work. It didn’t do much for the rain falling from above, but it definitely stopped most of the street water from splashing up on us. Which is honestly the only water I’m concerned about. Haha. There’s nothing like a mouthful of street sludge. We highly recommend MUSGUARD to anybody looking for a fender solution. 10 outta 10 would buy again and again.

FIXED GEAR SF – HOW TO RIDE YOUR BIKE IN THE RAIN

May 22, 2020

Heavy rains brought flash floods in San Francisco, but that didn’t stop us from going out and riding bikes. This is more of a demonstration than it is a how to but there really isn’t much to riding in the rain. Get yourself some fenders, in our case these “Musguards” and bring a change of clothes if you’re going somewhere. That’s it. After rolling around until our clothes weighed an extra 9lbs, we eventually made our way to MASH SF where Mike Martin gave us both shelter and fresh socks. Shout outs to MASH for always taking care of us. I love a good rainy day in SF. “It’s Just Water” – SMACKTRACKZ
