Living in the heart of the city comes with a healthy mix of both crackheads probing for change and the perpetual roar of sirens echoing through the neighborhood. It probably doesn’t help that we’re a couple blocks away from the local fire department, but I rarely notice it at this point. A couple months ago Aaron Keokham crashed at our pad to hang out and ride one weekend. The next morning, I walked outside with him and shot a couple quick photos before he headed back to the train station. Aaron is one of FGFS’s biggest supporters, and anybody who runs a Fixed Gear Freestyle brand probably recognizes the name. It’s dudes like him that keep the scene going, and inspire others to do the same. Check out his latest venture RIDE OR DYE.
On Saturday the FIXIEBOYZ408 packed their bikes, piled into a van and drove up to San Francisco to ride with us for the day. We met up at 3rd & Army, and then ventured into Hunters Point from there. Our goal was to work our way to Hilltop park and hit whatever spots we found along the way until eventually arriving at San Francisco’s oldest skatepark, The Dish. After that we roamed around the neighborhood until we came across this abandoned school with a bunch of unique things to ride. Keep your eyes peeled for footage of this day coming from both us and the Fixie Boyz themselves. // 07.18.2015
