Just started filming for a new web edit. I don’t have as much time to ride during the work week, so I’ll be filming mostly on the weekends. Lemme know if you’re in the city, and want to meet up to ride. I took this photo through the fire, while we were BBQing in the park the other day. There’s nothing like grilling up some burgers and dogs w/ the homies on a hot Summer’s day.
I’ve been riding for Specialized Bikes for a little more than a year now, and in that time I’ve watched Fixed Freestyle progress to a point which I never thought it would reach. The line between BMX + Fixed Freestyle is quickly fading, as we continue to push both ourselves and what we consider to be the standards for a FGFS Frame. The rest of the guys from Wheel Talk and I have been helping Specialized develop the PFIX since the days of the 1st prototype. We’ve put a lot into this bike, and plan on continuing to improve upon it. Fixed Freestyle has come a long way since the days of pole jams, I can’t wait to see where we take it from here.
Tom LaMarche reminds everyone why he’s still a beast on a bike, and gives us a taste of what true bike control looks like. He completely crushed shit in his latest video for Specialized. There’s just something about SD footy, east coast street spots, and TV broll that reminds me of Torey. It’s always a pleasure watching Tom ride. His smooth + burly riding style never ceases to amaze me.
Wheel Talk + Specialized are joining forces, and giving away a size Small PFIX for the new year. If you’ve been dying to get your hands on this bike, then now is your chance. Write us a comment in our post explaining why you have to have it. Short & sweet, long & thoughtful, write whatever it takes to get your message across, and this bike between your legs. Submissions end January 31st, and a winner will be chosen February 1st. Good luck, & we can’t wait to hear what you have to say.
SADIO BIKES welcomes Scott Horton to the Team, as their newest addition to the International lineup. He’s been putting in work on his PFIX w/ Sadio Components ever since we got them in the mail a few months back. Scott pedals hard into everything he ride, and has some interesting tricks up his sleeve, the hop through the bars to peg ride being one of them. Check out his page on the Sadio site HERE.
Here’s a couple shots of Scott (Bottom) & Matt’s (Top) Specialized PFIX builds. Both of us are running the Medium sized frame, dual 26’s w/ a 2.2″ Compound tire in the front, a 1.95 Hemisphere in the back, Sadio Booster Forks, Sadio Riot Pegs, Sadio Pivotal, Specialized Pedals w/ YNOT Straps, & Sadio 175mm Swoop Crank Arms. I’ll film complete bike checks soon, but for now enjoy these photos from this weekend.
