Mash Steel Frame

Mike Schmitt has been in and around Chari & Co for years. I found out about them by watching all the old Grime Bikes videos back in the day. It seemed like they were always hanging out at Chari in NYC, and for good reasons. The more I got to know the people over at Chari & Co, the more I began to see what all the hype was about. Not only do they make some of the raddest street wear but they’re also very kind and generous people. It’s easy to want to support the cause when they’re such solid human beings.

I highly recommend you check out their webstore and or scope them out online. Mike recently did a series of graphics for them which can be seen HERE. I’m always inspired by the way they shoot their flat lays and the bike friends they bring into the mix for their lifestyle photography. Worth a follow for sure. Check out the video Mike & I filmed entitled “Strangers”. Shot during the same day these photos were taken. That’s enough for now, talk to you soon.

Things have been heating up here in Portland, and it seems like the entire city is waking up from hibernation. Ramon Antonio, SLAM DUNK ERNIE & I hit the town and shot some clips on this GoPro I just picked up. This is the first cut I’ve made with it and am looking forward to having a new camera to play with. This is the first time I’ve ever done a foot jam tailwhip on a fixed gear. Not to say that I had this trick down on other bikes, I just remember trying this trick as a kid and never being able to stick it.

It’s all about the details and MASH fully delivered on that front. Their new Steel SS Framesets are custom crafted from head to toe and are intricate works of art in their own right. I really appreciate that both colorways they offer are grayscale and subtly branded. They’re both amazing and have so much attention to detail. All the finishes on this bike are really on point, and made it really easy to put together. Head over to their webstore and check out more.

Forever Forward. One of the first things I noticed when the box from MASHSF showed up on my doorstep was that it had the words “Keep moving forward” written across the top and side. When I popped open the box I saw that same slogan slapped on the underbelly of the bottom bracket. The more I admired it the more I began to dig into its underlying meaning. I’m a big fan of discoverable easter eggs like this, anything that makes you think. It’s a really nice touch.

I always love hanging my bike up on a street sign and shooting it from below. It removes all the unwanted signage at ground level and provides a view of the city most never look up to see. It’s something I do quite a bit and am constantly looking for the perfect corner or set of buildings as a backdrop. Every city has different street lights/signs and I could barely reach the ones we have here in Portland. I had to climb on an electrical box or shimmy up a pole for a couple of these shots. Check out more photos below, or head to MASHSF to see more of their new Steel Framesets.

Quick little jammer from my second day on the new MASHSF Steel Frame. I’ve been riding the frame for about a week now and I can already feel this new found sense of confidence being back on a steel build. The homies Ramon & Devin shot these clips of me breaking in the new bike on our way back to the office after a long and exciting day of work. I shot two other videos for Chrome Industries that day and am super excited to see them come out later next month. Keep your eyes peeled, check out some screenshots below and enjoy this video.
