Before 2020 came to a close, the boys and I met up at Kezar Stadium to do what we always do. Only this time we were headed to the beach. The sun was out for all of 15 minutes when we first met up. Then after that, the Sunset district lived up to its name. I’m grateful to have friends like this and hope you enjoy watching this video just as much as we enjoyed making it.
RIP Ricky, we miss you already. In the Spring of 2018 we met up with our old friend Ricky Powell in Greenwich Village and went on a walk and talk with him around the neighborhood. It was amazing to see the countless interactions he had with people, all of which made it abundantly clear that this was his home.
Born and raised in the Village, Ricky cut his teeth shooting photos of The Beastie Boys, Run DMC, Andy Warhol, Basquiat, and Keith Haring. Keeping a camera on him and being an opportunist, Ricky has shot some of the most iconic photos of some of the most iconic people of our time. We were honored to document some of the moments we shared together. Rest easy.
2019 Demo Reel – MMXIX Twenty nineteen was a great year for us. We traveled about the cabin, making films in New York, Germany, Los Angeles, Portland, and of course San Francisco. 3 of which were featured at the Bicycle Film Festival that year. We shook each other’s hands, embraced one another, got together in mass, and had our share of laughs. We climbed hills, dodged rain drops, rode fast, and watched time pass by. Thank you all for being here on this journey through life and I look forward to making more memories together.
Right before I left Los Angeles I started riding with JBALL, Oscar & Marco a lot. It was great having them around to get me back into riding my FGFS bike again. Here’s a montage of the 4 of us that could better be summarized as a video of JBALL with us making quick guest appearances along the way. Thanks for being here, reading this and joining us on this journey through life. We appreciate you.
FIXED GEAR FREESTYLE. Also known as FGFS. Maybe you’ve heard of it, maybe you haven’t. Maybe you even had one or still have one and already know what I’m talking about. Either way, it’s still here and we’re still having just as much fun on it as we always have.
It’s really cool to see how strong of friends we’ve all become and remained over the last decade. The scene out here has been meeting up every Saturday for a session in either SF or Oakland. They’ve been boarding everything up in San Francisco and I took that opportunity to use some of the painted plywood to shoot everybody’s FGFS Build.
There’s a lineup of 10 different setups in this post, take a look and let us know in the comment which one you like best. If you could keep one bike, which one would it be?

Name somebody who rides bikes in The Bay with more style than JESSIE. Go on, I’ll wait… It can’t be done, I already know. Every fit is more on point than the last, it’s endless. Check out Jessie’s IG to see some of the awesome dancing videos he’s been posting of him getting down in different places around San Francisco.

We’re back at it with another episode of “The Regular Show” here in San Francisco. This time the team rides 3rd & Army along with some other spots in the neighborhood. We burnt some rubber and had some laughs while hanging out on another smoggy day in California. This one speaks for itself, so press play and we’ll see you next time on Wheel Talk.
Tomorrow morning we’re dropping the video from this day so I figured I’d share some photos prior to its release. Shout out to all the homies here in San Francisco who have been a pillar of strength and support for both me and each other over the years. I can’t imagine where we’d be if it wasn’t for these bikes we ride and the good times we have because of it. It’s truly a cornerstone to which this house was built.
The squad continues to grow and so does our group chat which blows up 70% of the day. Haha. It’s a beautiful thing. Anthony Combs came out and brought with him his yellow Grime G.O.A.T build which is a staple in the FGFS frame lineage and a true blast from the past. Joshua Boothby came out of retirement and his riding makes it look like he never left. Josh Silva did donuts and jumped over his car at one point. Jimmy Watcha came through with the quick-hitting combos at 3rd & Army. And Andy Sparks laid down some of his signature moves in his even more signature attire. Anyways, keep your eyes peeled for the video release and we’ll catch you next time. Be good.
