Dew Sippawit is perhaps one of the greatest Fixed Gear Freestyle riders of all time, and has traveled all over the world because of it. Last year I had the opportunity to fly to Beijing China with him where we rode, filmed and cut loose during our two week stay there. I keep a 35mm camera in my backpack at all times, and am real glad I packed it on this trip because a bunch of these photos are now living on the walls of our house. While we were filming in this narrow alleyway, Dew found an old bike with two flats and decided to take it for a joyride. We were constantly on the move and rarely stayed at a spot for long due to the insanely heavy amount of security, police officers and armed forces. It was crazy to see dudes posted up with assault rifles all over Tiananmen Square. Keep your eyes peeled for more 35mm photos our trip.

Last Saturday the FIXIEBOYZ408 came to The City to hangout and ride for the day. We met up at Wallenberg and warmed up for a bit before exploring the neighborhood to ride some spots we haven’t been to in a while. Jimmy Watcha killed it as always, Daniel Le kicked a bunch of one footed cans throughout the day, and Peter Van Nguyen linked at least one technical line at every spot we went to. It was good to catch some photos of Spencer Siegrist for a change, especially considering the fact he’s there most of the time we’re out filming. After all was said and done, Mike Schmitt walked away with the photo of the day after skidding through a lone pile of sand. Check out more shots below and hit us up if you want to ride this weekend.

Jimmy Watcha has been riding for Pagan Bikes for a while now and just built up this wild iridescent frame with oil slick paint. I saw he posted pictures of it fresh out of the box on his instagram so when we met up to ride on Saturday I took a moment to snap these quick shots of it. Keep your eyes peeled for a full bike check the next few weeks.

In between filming for his part in the second issue of Can’t Fool The Youth, Devon Lawson dedicated some time to shoot this quick section for the TURF Bikes full length video entitled “Word Is Bond“. Devon has always been known for his precision barspins, steady pedals, and shear strength behind the bike. If you live under a rock and still haven’t seen the entire video front to back then I suggest you read more below and discover what you’ve been missing.

It’s easy to get stuck in the bubble living in San Francisco. It’s hard to leave when you have just about everything you need within walking distance. I’ve lived in the city for 7 years now and have only been across the Golden Gate Bridge a handful of times. So when I met up w/ Bryan Dempler to ride a couple weeks ago we ventured out to enjoy the one thing SF doesn’t have; open space.

The day before Michael Penrose drove back to his native land of Long Beach, I pulled his Bombtrack Dash out front of our house here in San Francisco and shot a couple quick photos of it. He’s made a few minor changes to his FGFS build since these photos were taken, and sent over THIS recent shot of his bike. Check out other photos below, along w/ a full list of parts.

NY PORTRAIT – RANDY RUSH

No Comments Trips

RandyRush_FGFSNY2015_BrooklynPortrait
Randy Rush is always on the move and was constantly riding hard during the short time we hung out with him in NY. When we were all tired / kicking back he was still hopping over things and getting after it. Midway through the day he showed us a tattoo of his that said “FGFS 4 LIFE” and then followed it up by saying we are the 1%. He’s one of the many riders paving the way for a new FGFS scene in New York; they call themselves, the Block Bullies. Keep your eyes peeled for more coming out of NY and check out other shots of Randy below.

Canadian Native, Charlie Sauve was coincidentally in NY the same time we were. So we met up, hung out, and stacked some clips of him for the video we’re making of our trip there. I’ve never met Charlie up until this point and almost didn’t recognize form all of the TAZ Skatepark videos he’s made. Read more below to check out another shot of him riding over the Brooklyn bridge, as well as his latest web video.

TURF BIKES – TUESDAYS 03

No Comments VIDEOS

I slacked on posting this when it came out, but it’s better late than never. Especially when this is quite possibly the best TURF Tuesday yet. Mike Schmitt, Ian Walker, Shane Hunt and I met up at Potrero Skatepark after work to hang out and ride. We stacked some clips, got hassled by a couple kooks and hit a few local spots around the neighborhood before calling it a night. Check out some of the other TURF Tuesday videos HERE and keep your eyes out for number four coming out later this month.
