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.
It’s the beginning of the year and Mike Schmitt & I are back at it again. This time we took things to the southern part of San Francisco where we made a lap around what used to be Candlestick Stadium. On our way back into town I stopped to get a clip on this little loading dock ramp and ran over an oversized staple. We looked up the nearest bike shop which was miles down the road because there aren’t many businesses in that part of Hunter’s Point. After a quick tube change we were back up and moving. We grabbed a couple road sodas and headed in search of a place to enjoy them. Mike filmed this fish n chips to forward wheelie combo I’ve been working on. Still gotta come up with a name for it, I’ll let you know when we do, but until then press play and enjoy. MASH STEEL FRAME.
Footage from my trip to San Francisco in May. All the usual Suspects came out the woodwork to hangout and ride. Jake Lanich rides a minute long wheelie, Devon Lawson rides his new MASH build for the first time, & I bought a piñata for the MASH Cino de Mayo swap meet. Malls are a thing of the past, but the good vibes live on. Until next time.
With the year coming to a close, I just wanted to take a second to take a step back and honor some of the amazing work that’s come out this year. I compiled a quick top ten of some of the videos that stood out to me and were truly memorable. Really looking forward to seeing what the coming decade has in store. Have fun, watch these, then go ride jah bike. ✌️
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.

We are strangers to ourselves. Sometimes when I look back at the videos we’ve made there’s a weird disconnect. Even though we were there every step of the way while making it, it’s still a strange out of body experience to watch yourself. Mike Schmitt really did a number on cutting this one together. After picking up an old JVC VHS camera, Mike transcoded the footage we shot onto a S-VHS tape, then recaptured it and edited this video. It really brings together all the clips considering they came from 3 different cameras.
Here’s a photo collage Mike put together using some of the photos I shot. I really like the process photos on the top right and the integration of video clips into the slides. (Click here to see the post in motion) Shout out to Chari & Co. for lacing it up with the sweet gear (Some of which Mike did the graphics for) and giving us a reason to get out and make something.
Happy Cinco De Mayo Y’all. MASH SF always throws the best events, and on 5.5.19 we all got together in the park to celebrate the Anniversary of the shop on Sanchez st. With a ramp, a race, a bunch of parts for sale and plenty of food to go around we all had a blast getting gassed in the grass. Which looked a lot more green in person. I kinda got a thing against green grass and made it brown instead. (Concrete is king) Keep your eyes peeled for the video that we’ll drop on Monday and until then check out more photos below.
