The best part about riding fixed gear is figuring out the footwork. Some spots require more than others, but having your friends cheering on the sideline sure does help. Check out a bunch of screenshots below.
Just your average Saturday here in the Bay Area. I have a video to go along with this day. I just need to carve out some time to edit it. My computer has been running disastrously slow these days and I think it’s about time I get a new one. Easier said than done. At any rate I’ve got a lot of projects that I’m eager to get both off my plate and out into the world. We have such a great time during these meetups and it’s a blessing that we’re able to share it with our friends around the world. It’s a truly special time we live in. Cherish every moment of it and find some time to disconnect, reconnect and be outside.

Josh Boothby 2020 Clips. Earlier this week SMC posted a video of the top 10 riders of last year. A yung Joshua Boothby made the list after his recent comeback to riding Fixed Gear Freestyle. Every time he came out he threw down. I opened up a handful of projects from last year and put together this solo video of the man. Josh is just as good as he ever was, it’s a beautiful thing.
I recorded the soundtrack for this video with a guitar pedal and a heavily modified cassette player we built out of wood and electronics. (The Cassettone)
A pack of desperados riding off into the sunset. West Coast at its finest. We’re outside and you already know the drill. Pack your bag, grab a snack and get ready to shred with us in San Francisco’s Sunset district. Press play and check out a photo collage of the team below. Be good.

Before 2020 came to a close, the boys and I met up at Kezar Stadium to do what we always do. Only this time we were headed to the beach. The sun was out for all of 15 minutes when we first met up. Then after that, the Sunset district lived up to its name. I’m grateful to have friends like this and hope you enjoy watching this video just as much as we enjoyed making it.
Right before I left Los Angeles I started riding with JBALL, Oscar & Marco a lot. It was great having them around to get me back into riding my FGFS bike again. Here’s a montage of the 4 of us that could better be summarized as a video of JBALL with us making quick guest appearances along the way. Thanks for being here, reading this and joining us on this journey through life. We appreciate you.
FIXED GEAR FREESTYLE. Also known as FGFS. Maybe you’ve heard of it, maybe you haven’t. Maybe you even had one or still have one and already know what I’m talking about. Either way, it’s still here and we’re still having just as much fun on it as we always have.
It’s really cool to see how strong of friends we’ve all become and remained over the last decade. The scene out here has been meeting up every Saturday for a session in either SF or Oakland. They’ve been boarding everything up in San Francisco and I took that opportunity to use some of the painted plywood to shoot everybody’s FGFS Build.
There’s a lineup of 10 different setups in this post, take a look and let us know in the comment which one you like best. If you could keep one bike, which one would it be?

Tomorrow morning we’re dropping the video from this day so I figured I’d share some photos prior to its release. Shout out to all the homies here in San Francisco who have been a pillar of strength and support for both me and each other over the years. I can’t imagine where we’d be if it wasn’t for these bikes we ride and the good times we have because of it. It’s truly a cornerstone to which this house was built.
The squad continues to grow and so does our group chat which blows up 70% of the day. Haha. It’s a beautiful thing. Anthony Combs came out and brought with him his yellow Grime G.O.A.T build which is a staple in the FGFS frame lineage and a true blast from the past. Joshua Boothby came out of retirement and his riding makes it look like he never left. Josh Silva did donuts and jumped over his car at one point. Jimmy Watcha came through with the quick-hitting combos at 3rd & Army. And Andy Sparks laid down some of his signature moves in his even more signature attire. Anyways, keep your eyes peeled for the video release and we’ll catch you next time. Be good.
