FGFS SF – THE SUN NEVER SETS (PHOTOS)

February 16, 2021

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.

FIXED GEAR FREESTYLE BUILDS

December 8, 2020

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?

FIXED GEAR – SAN FRANCISCO SIDESHOW (GASSED UP)

December 2, 2020

We’re back at it with another episode of “The Regular Show” here in San Francisco. This time the team rides 3rd & Army along with some other spots in the neighborhood. We burnt some rubber and had some laughs while hanging out on another smoggy day in California. This one speaks for itself, so press play and we’ll see you next time on Wheel Talk.

FGFS SF – GASSED UP & MASKED UP

December 2, 2020

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.

FGFS SAN FRANCISCO – BAD BOYS DOING GOOD

November 30, 2020

We’re here for a good time, not a long time. Nobody knows how much time we get on this earth, so take advantage and appreciate every moment of it. Spend it wisely. Better yet, spend it with friends. Help each other grow and inspire others to live a life full of joy. I’ve been making posts of the photos from this day and now it has me stoked to assemble the video. Major thanks to everyone for coming out, helping out, and always being a pleasure to be around. Y’all the real MVP’s.

STILL POURLAND PREMIERE IN SAN FRANCISCO

September 3, 2018

Last Saturday Ramon Antonio hosted the “Still Pourland” premiere here in San Francisco, and all the usual suspects came out of the woodwork for the event. Valentin Racho showed up as well as Jeff Dempler, Alex Blanco and many others. We met up at Soma West Skatepark and rode there for a few hours. Stacking clips, cracking cans, and hanging out until the video premiere at Chrome Industries in the Mission. I brought a pizza to the jam so you know it was a party. I’m sure Mon will make a video from this at some point, but here are some photos from the day until then. The scene needs more meetups like this.
