FGFS – JAOA DANAIKRIT “PORTLAND’S WEIRD”

July 30, 2019

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.

WHEELIE BOYS – A$AP FERG + RRDBLOCKS NYC 2019

July 27, 2019

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.

FIXED GEAR LA – JOHNATHAN BALL “SECOND NATURE”

July 16, 2019

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.

BROKEN CLAVICLE CLUB

July 9, 2019

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.

Riding local SF trails with Outer Shell’s Jim Santos

July 4, 2019

If you’re looking for SF’s best local singletrack trails, then Mt. Sutro’s interior greenbelt and Twin Peaks are probably at the top of that list. Roughly scattered around the Sutro radio tower in the geographic center of San Francisco, lies a surprisingly fun network of trails to link up and ride. It’s pretty awesome having our own lush forest to rip around in, just a few miles away from most people’s homes.

Here’s a Trail Forks map you can peep if you want to check the trails out for yourself (and you should!)

“STRANGERS” A FIXED GEAR FILM FOR CHARI & CO.

June 28, 2019

We are strangers to ourselves. Sometimes when I look back at the videos we’ve made there’s a weird disconnect. Even though we were there every step of the way while making it, it’s still a strange out of body experience to watch yourself. Mike Schmitt really did a number on cutting this one together. After picking up an old JVC VHS camera, Mike transcoded the footage we shot onto a S-VHS tape, then recaptured it and edited this video. It really brings together all the clips considering they came from 3 different cameras.

Here’s a photo collage Mike put together using some of the photos I shot. I really like the process photos on the top right and the integration of video clips into the slides. (Click here to see the post in motion) Shout out to Chari & Co. for lacing it up with the sweet gear (Some of which Mike did the graphics for) and giving us a reason to get out and make something.

FIXED GEAR BIKE CHECK – JAKE LANICH’S MASH AC1

June 25, 2019

Jake Lanich loves to keep it fixie and is always running the lightest parts on his bikes. In this episode, Jake walks us through his MASH AC1 build in SF’s financial district. A prime backdrop. Especially when the sun is reflecting off the glass buildings at the end of the day. I’m pretty sure it’s decided that those backwards pedaling super sliders are Jake’s signature trick. Anyways, we can’t pump up Jake enough, he’s one funny dude, and an even better friend to ride with. Press Play and check out a full parts breakdown below.

FIXED GEAR BIKE CHECK – ANDY SPARK’S (GALAXY FIGHTER)

May 31, 2019

Andy Sparks breaks down his Fixed Gear Freestyle setup part by part, and walks us through every little detail. Andy’s bike has become an iconic part of him and has remained relatively unchanged for nearly a decade. After shooting this with him, it’s easy to see why he loves this build so much and it’s clear that Andy not only rides hard, but also knows how to take care of his things. In words of the man himself, “ride em until they don’t ride anymore.”

Check out a written version below and follow Andy’s YT Channel. He’s constantly posting tutorials and breaking down the inner workings of some of your favorite fixie tricks.
