MISSION CRIT VII – 2022 PHOTOS

September 6, 2022

San Francisco’s legendary Mission Crit popped off over the weekend with 6 days packed full of track bike racing & mayhem. The event tee’d off on Wednesday at Hellyer Velodrome, then moved back up to The City on Thursday with an alleycat + registration. Things then heated up on Friday night with a short circuit race held at an indoor go-kart track. This event brought to life the term “rubbing is racing” as riders were sent over the knee high barricades more than a handful of times (Video evidence HERE).

All of which brought us to Saturday’s main event, the Mission Criterium. Riders from around the globe came to partake in what has become the largest fixed gear race on the planet. With that being said, I’d like to take a moment and give huge shoutout to James Grady, the countless volunteers and everyone who helped to bring the fixed gear community together for this incredibly memorable moment. Things wouldn’t be the same without all of your continuous efforts. (More info on Mission Crit + the Fixed Gear Triple Crown can be found HERE)

After all was said and done there wasn’t a single person without a smile on their face. The course was cleared and the streets that were shutdown for the race were graciously given back to the city until we could do it all over again next year. If racers weren’t tired yet they could look forward to the Tracklocross race on Sunday followed by the “Giro di San Francisco” on Monday. If you raced all 6 days or even showed up to all 6 events, then go ahead and give yourself a massive pat on the back. It’s probably a good time to take it easy as we hopefully exit out of this mind numbing heat wave here in California. 🥵 🏁

FIXED GEAR SF – MATT “SLUMWORM” REYES + MASH

September 8, 2020

Steel is real. Matt “SLUMWORM” Reyes for MASH SF. I’ve been riding the MASH Steel frame for a couple years now and it’s my every day, all in one, dream machine. I’ve traveled the world with this bike, logged thousands of miles on it, and have used it in every way imaginable. It’s by and far the most versatile bike I’ve ever ridden and continues to put a smile on my face every time I get on that saddle.

BIKE CHECK – MASH AC1 GANG (NARRATED BY: JAKE LANICH)

June 25, 2020

Narrated by Jake (Brotha) Lanich in front of MASH SF. Jake runs through 3 different yet similar MASH AC1 builds in just over 2 minutes. He breaks them down all at once without putting them down or even breaking a sweat. I’m not sure if that’s a testimony to Jake’s strength or the lightweight nature of these frame sets. MASH has a new batch of frames coming this fall. I’m looking forward to seeing the AC2. Stay tuned.

MASH SF + KOSUKE MASUDA HAND ENGRAVED STEEL BUILD

June 5, 2020

I hang out around MASH a lot when Im in San Francisco. One of the last times I was in town I had the honor of photographing this one of a kind love boat in front of the shop. The closer I looked the more impressed I became at the sheer level of detail. Every nook and cranny had a hand engraved element. Most of which felt very fluid and natural. With themes of foliage and water peppered throughout the line work, this bike is truly unforgettable.

THIS BIKE IS CURRENTLY FOR SALE. CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS.

Kosuke Masuda – or simply Ko – is Shingon monk who lives in Yokohama Japan with his family. Ko has been exploring engraving on bike and bike parts as an artistic medium. His work is astounding anPd is on full display with this complete bike. It is the only bike of its kind and a magnificent piece of art.” – Insert courtesy of MASH SF

FIXED GEAR SF – IT’S REGULAR

May 27, 2020

“IT’S REGULAR”. Just another day in the neighborhood. Slam Dunk Ernie & I met up with Jake Lanich & Andy Sparks in Downtown San Francisco to ride bikes and do what we always do. We hope that everyone can get back to doing what they love with the ones they love doing it with again in the near future. But until then, here’s a day video of some of the good times we share together on a regular basis. Check out the songs I made for the video below as well as 40 different screen shots. What do you think? Same time next week?

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
