FGFS LA – THE INFINITE SPRAWL

October 2, 2019

After I got home, I flipped through the camera and thought to myself… I should have taken way more photos. JBALL, Deacon, Tadashi, Nico & I met up in Santa Monica to ride a couple schools that MTS put us in touch with. I need to start making a map of spots out here because things aren’t as close as we’re used to. LA is a big place and it doesn’t really seem to have an edge until you hit the ocean. It just sprawls out infinitely. It seems like most spots are only accessible via automobile. That’s somewhat of an exaggeration, but you’re definitely going to have to drive to meet up with your friends. That’s what these dudes did. Thanks again for coming over to our neck of the woods to ride before Tadashi flew back home. We’ll have to make it a slumber party next time.

KEO CURRY FOREVER

September 10, 2019

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.

SAN FRANCISCO – RED BULL BAY CLIMB 2019

September 9, 2019

San Francisco is best known for one thing, hills. Steep ones. The kind of hills that make you go “please tell me we’re not walking up that”. The kind of hills that give you a nose bleed by the time you get to the top. Those hills.

For the 3rd year in a row we celebrated the Red Bull Bay Climb hosted by Mission Crit & and yours truly, James Grady. Set with an amazing backdrop, this 3 block course runs grades of up to 21% degrees. Enough to make even the spectators tired. @SLAMDUNKERNIE & I were on the scene with our camera in hand ready to capture all the action.

BOMBTRACK BEYOND: JUNIOR

August 18, 2019

Slum and I were at the Bombtrack Groundwork event last week and there was a mass of new bikes, 32 total. One of those stood out from the rest and it wasn’t even designed for myself, or any other adult, to ride. The Bombtrack Beyond: Junior was created so kids didn’t have to stay home while the parental units were out getting rad.

To me this seems like a logical product for a bike manufacturer to create. Honestly, who’s Facebook feed isn’t filled with baby photos and announcements? We’re all getting older and starting families, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop going on adventures and Bombtrack realized that.

SF 2 GERMANY WEEK 1

August 7, 2019

It’s already been one week and I feel like a lot has already happened. I’ve been spending this first week with family in Hunsrück and riding down to the Rhein river and taking in the castle scenery and long 10 mile climbs back home. The local hot loop that everyone hits up is a 38km dedicated bike path through the woods and surrounding farmland. So of course I’ve been hitting that up on days where I can only get in something short. They just had a big techno festival, Nature 1, along the bike path which lead to lots of Raver Dodging.

A$AP FERG X REDLINE LAUNCH PARTY IN NYC

July 31, 2019

A$AP FERG recently teamed up with REDLINE and came out with his own signature setup. The FERG X RL 275. I just happened to be in New York for the 19th annual Bicycle Film Festival, and cruised over to the launch party with RRDBlocks and the gang. You can peep that video HERE or at the bottom of this post.

I’ve never seen so many rippers in one spot. It’s like everybody had two wheels, but only needed one. Case and point, the image of @jaemilez above / to the right. NYPD shut down the street and let everyone ride the alleyway for a couple hours which was awesome. It was unnerving at first, but after a while it just became funny watching officers film dudes wheeling up and down the block. Shout out to everyone who came out to show out.

SUMMER VACATION – SF 2 GERMANY

July 31, 2019

Remember summer vacation as a kid? Endless days spent riding bikes, jumping in swimming holes, carefree days where your parents let you roam free. That is what is in store for Wheel Talk in the next few days. We are headed to Germany for some chill vibes, bike rides, catching up with friends, and of course… beer.

Stayed tuned for more! 

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.

Song: JEFCheer
