Picking up where we left off. Last month I moved back to San Francisco. After nearly a decade of living here, and 4 years spent living in other cities I can honestly and confidently say that SF is the best and only real city on the West Coast. Good vibes and great friends are a hard thing to find everywhere you go, but the Bay Area has it in abundance.

On Saturday (September 5th 2020) we all got together at “The Island” and made our way up Market street to session both Wallenberg & The Museums in GGP. The gang finally convinced me to get back on my FGFS bike, and I must say… I’m sure glad they did. I almost forgot what it felt like to ride this bike and how much it raises my spirits. It’s like the old saying, “you never forget how to ride a bike”.

For every spot they kill with caps or tear out completely, there’s another one that’s finishing up being built. The only trouble with that is riding it before they have a chance to realize what they’ve made and kill it with caps again. It’s a vicious cycle, but with all of the construction going on in SF, it’s easy to find something new. Here are a couple angles of Michael Penrose doing a smith line at a spot we just recently stumble across. Keep your eyes peeled for the clip in the upcoming Wheel Talk full length.

Michael Penrose - SF 2015 - FGFS - Taxi Wars
Being a part of the FGFS community is perhaps the best part about riding Fixed Gear Freestyle. The scene is so tightly knit that you don’t have to have met somebody to feel like you’re already best buds. It’s this small thing that we share in common that breaks the ice and bonds us all together. Nearly all of the friends I have at this point stem from biking in one way or another. When Michael Penrose hit me up asking if he could stay with us in SF, our response was an immediate yes. Having never met him before he stepped foot in our house, we felt as though we already knew him through watching him ride in videos and the most recent SMC Trip to Arizona // “Iced Out Arizona“. Here are some photos of him riding in down town San Francisco mid-way through his stay. Be on the look out for more photos & videos coming soon.

With the Fixed Gear Freestyle scene continuing to grow here in San Francisco, we’ve been playing host for more and more people coming to the Bay Area to ride & kick it. Michael Penrose is the latest addition to our household and has been in town for nearly a week now. Here’s a couple photos from the first spot of our fist day exploring the streets of SF. For those who are curious, Michael is on a Bombtrack Dash. Keep your eyes peeled for more photos of Michael’s stay in the next couple weeks.
