Here’s a look at my current Specialized PFIX build. I just recently got on the production model PFIX after riding the same prototype frame for 9+ months. I decided to rattle can this one something special since I’ve been riding a nearly colorless set up for what feels like years now. It’s hard to tell who’s who when everyone’s bike is murdered out.
I took this picture of Christian Hamrick’s Grime G.O.A.T a few weeks ago, while I was hanging out in down town San Jose. I’ve always been a fan of RAW, unpainted frames & white wall tires, and photos taken like this of bikes.
On Saturday the Team assembled at iMiNUSD to meet up and deliver the goods to the Winner of the PFIX Giveaway, Francis Roque. We spent the day riding around with him while he took his new Specialized PFIX for a spin. Form the way he was riding you would never be able to tell that this was his 1st day on the bike. (more…)
Mike has been rocking the BalHogs grip strip on his down tube for quite a while now, and he’s been utilizing it to come up with some rather unique maneuvers. Mainly for mobbing down hill with his feet off the pedals and ass tucked behind the seat. Hanging so far back off the bike. Head over to the BalHogs webstore and pick one up while they’re still around, I know I can’t wait to slap one on my whip.
Pulled this photo of Matt Rice’s PFIX build from his Flickr. This is definitely the cleanest PFIX build I’ve seen yet, especially considering it’s a Size : Large frame. Super fresh w/ those gum wall tires, and silver chain. For those of you who don’t know, Matt Rice runs Deal With It SF. He rides blades, Fixed Freestyle, and holds it down mad well w/ a Kendama. Head over to his blog and check his shit out.
I recently went on a night ride w/ my good friend Alex Le Cas-barré. He brought along w/ him his Felt TK2 and a 6pack of Stella for the ride in his new Chrome Night Series Messenger Bag. He’s back home in Paris right now, but I can’t wait until he’s back in town so we can ride, and kick it in the new year.
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.
