15 Shots. Recently Mike T Schmitt made me aware of a thing called “sprocket photography”. Basically shooting full bleed on rolls of 35mm. I already had a medium format camera, my Hasselblad 503CX, but had to order a 35mm adapter to shoot on that 120mm camera. The results were what you see in this video and the links within this post. This made me remember why I love shooting film in the first place. Thanks for being here and we’ll see you soon. 🙂
Riders: Johnathan Ball, Marco Marquez, Deacon Wong, & Oscar Lopez

The best part about riding fixed gear is figuring out the footwork. Some spots require more than others, but having your friends cheering on the sideline sure does help. Check out a bunch of screenshots below.

Reunited and it feels so gooood. During this time I had just finished a major job and was enjoying my first weekend back with the boys. With a lot of the usual suspects in SF or the day we had our fun doing what we usually do. Having fun, riding bikes & looking for a place in this world to be ourselves. Break fake rules. Enjoy every moment of every day and tell your friends you love them. Be good and we’ll see you next time.

MISSION CRIT 2019. Riders, speed junkies, and spectators from all over the world flocked to the streets of San Francisco for what was bound to be the premier fixed gear criterium of the season. It was great to see so many people come together to share in a mutual love for track bikes. Things just keep getting better as the amount of people I see doing wheelies at these things only continues to grow.

This is a bike race, and it’s going to be the best one of the year.

Sam Allgood is one inspiring human being. He rode from Astoria Oregon to San Francisco California in 16 days with no real schedule, no jacket and only one pair of socks. I set him up with a sweater when he got to fog covered SF and let him crash at my house the first few nights. He shared stories from his journey, showed us some kendama tricks, and made me want to drop everything to join him on the rest of his quest. Safe travels my friend.

I remember thinking Mike Schmitt was from New York based on the GRIME videos that were released during the early years of FGFS. I don’t know where the scene would be if it wasn’t for those videos and the legwork that they did on the East Coast. Late last year Mike and I traveled to NYC for the Red Bull Figure 8 race and filmed a shit ton during the 4 days we were in town. It’s great traveling with someone who does their homework or already knows the lay of the land when it comes to finding spots, and Mike is a master of that. Keep your eyes peeled for the 11 minute short film from our stay.
