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
Signed, sealed, delivered. For the SF Premiere of the latest Wheel Talk video “NO REST”, we decided to make a janky ramp and wheel it down to The Island. Everybody caught some air, with a few people sending it straight into next week. Big ups for everyone who came out to have some fun, and shout out to Mission Workshop for letting us get rowdy in their space. The longest jump on a fixed gear was somewhere around 16 ft in case anybody was wondering.
This year’s Red Bull Bay Climb was one of the best yet. Everyone partied hard and had a great time heckling the gassed riders coming up the hill. Gearing was key and it was fun to see who chose what when it came to the fixed gear sprints. “Fasterrr” and “keep going” were two of the fan favorites. Between that and the endless ringing of bells, I’m pretty sure that’s all I heard. We had a great time shooting this and love our Fixie Fam in San Francisco. Until next time y’all. Shout out to James Grady for always being there to host the good times.
First off I just want to say thanks to anybody who was there to hold a camera or a candle to the flame that was Keo Curry. He’s by and far fixed gear’s most prolific rider, and shaped the landscape of what it means to do tricks on track bikes. It’s important to know where you come from and Keo paved the path we’re standing on. I honor of him we’ll do our best to carry that torch.
Everything is better with friends and Jaoa Danaikrit is one of my closest homies. He’s like a brother to me and basically lived in Portland as long as we did. He’s a genuine force of positivity and an absolute pleasure to be around. We were able to create a handful of videos together while he was here, but this might be our favorite creation yet. I’ll stop talking now, press play, enjoy and as always, shout out to Jeff Osborn for the soundtrack.

YERRRR! We out here in NYC busting wheelies and tearing up the streets with RRDBlocks, Lucas Brunelle & Ed Wonka and a bunch of other homies on our way to the A$AP FERG launch party. FERG teamed up with Redline to create a signature wheelie boy bike, and it’s fire. Plus it’s yellow. Shout out to the Bicycle Film Festival for giving me a reason to fly out to New York. The planets aligned with this one.
I met up with Johnathan Ball in downtown Los Angeles and filmed this with him in a couple hours. JBALL has been riding fixed gear for forever and all those year’s of riding FGFS makes it really fun to watch him wield a track bike. Just look at those bar spin combos and fish n chip rotations. We’ll have to get together and film with JBALL more often.
Shout out to the lvl. 9 homie JEF for making the soundtrack.
I don’t usually make these types of videos, but with my recent injury / move from Portland, I finally had enough of a reason to shoot something like this. It feels like I’m watching home movies. Perhaps I’ll make more of these for personal / historical reasons. I’m still healing from more than just a broken shoulder but wanted to take a second to give a major shout out to Jaynie, Ernie & Jeff for always helping me keep things positive. You’re the best.
