Brotha Lanich. Live and direct in San Francisco. This welcome to the team video is long overdue, but it’s better late than never. Shout out to Jake for being the amazing human being he is and for putting the scene on to the “SUUUUPER SLIDERRRR”. Anyways, press play, have fun and we’ll see you out there.
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.
I miss San Francisco. We move where the wind takes us and word on the street is there’s a strong wind blowing North. Anyways, I was doing some spring cleaning and stumbled across this batch of photos that were never shared on here, so I figured I’d take the time to put this post together. I hope everyone is doing well out there and I’ll see/talk to you soon.

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.
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

“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?
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
Chances are that if you seen Jake Lanich riding around town, he’s probably wearing this backpack. With enough space to carry just about everything you own, Inside Line Equipment pulled all the stops in the creation of this bag. I’m pretty sure that Jake just pulls over at the end of the day, opens his bag, and climbs in it for the night. It’s literally that spacious. The homie Evian rocks the same ILE XL Backpack for food delivery but his is orange, and if you know Evian, that couldn’t be more perfect for him. It’s literally his everyday color way.
Check out more photos below and better yet, head over to INSIDE LINE EQUIPMENT to check out more of the rad carry solutions they offer. Whether it’s an everyday bag or one big enough to live in, ILE has it all.
