Everybody has dreams and Anthony Combs has dreams to one day sore high over the hoop and dunk his bicycle. With only seconds left on the clock we were able to capture a couple quick photos before the buzzer rang and he scored the game winning shot. Bringing home the title, saving the day and anything else sports related you can think of. He’s been riding Ed Wonka’s signature frame by Capone Bikes for a couple months now and has been real stoked on the upgrade. Be on the look out for a complete bike check of his build coming next week. Until then check out more photos below.
A couple weeks ago I met up w/ Ed “Wonka” Laforte and cruised around San Francisco’s China Town. We wondered up and down the network of alleyways in search of spots that we may have previously overlooked. What Chi town lacks in french fires, it more than makes up for in congested streets riddled with trash & clothes hung out to dry. Ed has been riding his signature frame from Capone Bikes for a little more than a month now and has been going harder than ever on it. Keep your eyes peeled for more photos from this day coming soon.
Capone Bikes welcomes Ed “Wonka” Laforte as the newest member to the FGFS team. They’ve already started producing working prototypes of Ed’s signature frame and he’s been running it through the ringer over the last few weeks. Be on the look out for a bike check of that later this week, until then press play and enjoy.
Ed “Wonka” Laforte has been in kahoots with Capone Bikes for a while now, and I’ve already seen pictures of his signature frame leaked on instagram. Kai & Young from Capone were incredibly welcoming and hospitable during our trip to Beijing late last year. Read more below to check out some exclusive photos of Ed’s Pro Model Frame as well as a shot of him doing what he does best, tooth hangovers.
If you don’t know, or haven’t heard, Harness The Gnarness 2014 Hosted by Ed “Wonka” Laforte is this Sunday in Oakland (11.16.14).

Yesterday I went riding around San Francisco w/ Anthony Combs who crashed out in the little bungalow beneath my bed the night before. We checked out the new skatepark they built beneath the highway and rode some spots in the surrounding neighborhoods. Mike laced Anthony up the new aluminum TURF Cranks, sprocket, and a front hub. The find of the day definitely had to be the load of florescent lightbulbs we found wedged into a street can in the TL. It’s been a while since I’ve ridden with Anthony but I guarantee that you’ll be seeing a lot more of him in the near future.
