ALL FIXED COMP VIDEO

No Comments VIDEOS

Chris from PlusSizeBMX put together this edit of the All Fixed Comp at this years SF Bike Expo. A ton of shit went down this year, and this video is merely a taste of the action, but I’m sure glad someone was there to cover it considering I had minor difficulties w/ my camera. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that the course was made up of mostly dirt jumps, making things a little more interesting, and showing that Fixed really is a cross between BMX (street) & MTB (dirt). It just gets better and better year after year, I can’t wait for the next SF Bike Expo.

SCREEN SHOTS | SF STREET

2 Comments WT Action Shots

Here’s some screen shots I grabbed off of the footage we got the weekend of the SF Bike Expo. I had most of the iMiNUSD Team crashing out in my living room for the weekend, while we went to the All Fixed Comp and shredded the streets of San Francisco. The top photo is of me kicking a whip off the bank at Wallenberg, the middle is of Devon Lawson bucking over the bars on this nice 15 stair handrail, and the bottom is of Matt Montoya riding a hang 5 across the bride on our way to the Expo. Just a taste of some of the footage we caught, stay tuned for the actual clips.

MARCO’S PFIX

1 Comment News, Product Shots

A few weeks back I saw a Specialized PFIX in the wild for the 1st time. It belonged to 14year old San Jose native Marco VillaseƱor. I caught this photo of him on the way home from the SF Bike Expo on Saturday. I can’t tell you how stoked I am to see other kids shredding on the bike. That’s what the PFIX is all about, making it affordable so that more people can get in on this & try it out, without being held back by funds.

No Comments News

This is the 1st picture I’ve seen of the SF Bike Expo All Fixed Comp. It’s a family event bringing together some of the best Fixed Freestyle riders from all over California. Everyone had a blast trying to figure out how they were going to ride the back yard wrestling match of a course. Consisting of primarily dirt jumps mixed in w/ wood ramps & a single grind-able rail fitted in between a kicker gap. Photo Credit : LDG Mike

SCOTT HORTON + SADIO

1 Comment VIDEOS

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.

A DAY IN SAN JOSE

No Comments VIDEOS

Christian Hamrick put this together while he was back out here in the Bay a couple weeks ago. There are some great clips in here both b-roll and riding. Cunningham Skatepark is so big you could ride it every day and never get tired of it. You’re always finding something new, especially if you’re around the right kind of people. And right now, San Jose is the place to be for Fixed Freestyle. There is such a strong FGFS presence, and the scene is so huge that there are new kids popping up ever day.
