FGFS SF – FINANCIAL BOYS PHOTOS

September 27, 2020

The boys are back in town. Every Saturday we’ve been meeting up to shred in San Francisco and this week was no exception. Immediately after DASH 4 THE CASH was finished we linked up and rode the Financial District. Which has been completely gutted and is incredibly desolate with everything going on in the world. SF is a ghost town and we’re taking full advantage of that. Stay tuned and keep your eyes peeled for the video from this day dropping tomorrow morning. Holler at your boy if anybody wants to meet up and roll around with us sometime. All bikes are welcome.

FGFS LOS ANGELES – KEEPING DISTANCE

June 29, 2020

https://wheeltalk.org/2020/06/29/fgfs-los-angeles-keeping-distanceOnce a week. It’s been good to get back on the FGFS bike again and even better to have a social distance session with the boys. The photo of JBALL hitting a table top is one of my favorite shots from the day. He brought a film video camera with him and we got a quick clip with that at our first spot of the day. The banks. After that it was off to the local high school to ride some surprisingly beautiful and uncapped set of ledges. If only more schools were built like that.

I’m looking forward to dropping off the roll of 35mm I shot on my 120mm Hasselblad 503cx. I just got a spool adapter recently and have never shot full bleed 35mm. It’ll be fun to see how the sprocket style film photos turn out. I took some top down photos / video through the view finder to help give you an idea of what we got. Stay tuned for video clips from this day as well as a solo part of Marco Marquez we recently finished piecing together.

FIXED GEAR – GUILLERMO IN DTLA

June 26, 2020

Guillermo Galindo has been a man on a mission lately. His riding has progressed so much in the last year and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. It’s truly amazing to see how far he’s come and I highly suggest you check out his youtube channel. He’s constantly turning out new videos and progressing at everything he puts his mind to. I’ve only known him for a short while, but I can already tell that he’s going places just by his positive mindset and he way he inspires others. Keep charging my dude.

WHEEL TALK – PLUS ULTRA

June 11, 2020

Who doesn’t love leftover pizza. The team really came together for this one, like knights of the round table. Actually this is just a bunch of clips from 2019 that didn’t make their way into other videos edits. I knew there were some extra clips floating around and I’m really glad I went back through to see what didn’t make the first cut. Check out nearly 50 screen shots as well as the custom soundtrack to the video below.

FIXED GEAR SF – HOW TO RIDE YOUR BIKE IN THE RAIN

May 22, 2020

Heavy rains brought flash floods in San Francisco, but that didn’t stop us from going out and riding bikes. This is more of a demonstration than it is a how to but there really isn’t much to riding in the rain. Get yourself some fenders, in our case these “Musguards” and bring a change of clothes if you’re going somewhere. That’s it. After rolling around until our clothes weighed an extra 9lbs, we eventually made our way to MASH SF where Mike Martin gave us both shelter and fresh socks. Shout outs to MASH for always taking care of us. I love a good rainy day in SF. “It’s Just Water” – SMACKTRACKZ

FIXED GEAR / BIKE LIFE – HIGH TIDE IN SAN FRANCISCO

April 21, 2020

Happy holidays everyone. It’s high tide here in San Francisco and we decided to meet up at the Clocktower. As usual. We kept it close and rode wheelies / did fixed gear tricks along Embarcadero before ending up at one of my favorite warehouse spots along the pier. Santos said “JUMP YOUR BIKE” and he’s doing his best to lead by example. What a fine role model. Later that night, Jake 100 + the London fam rolled up to The City. Stay tuned for more bike videos in the Bay Area. RIDERS: Jakob Santos // Andy Sparks // Matt Reyes // Josh Boothby // Matt Bastard // Josh Silva // Designer Lamar
