RUFF Bike Co. recently dropped these GC Handle Bars along with a promotional Mixtape featuring their 4 man squad (Matt Spencer, Elliott Milner, Jackson Bradshaw, and Jacob Ruff). Immediately after watching the mixtape I dropped everything I was doing and headed over to their webstore to pick up a pair for myself. Their iconic design and 4 piece construction make them both hard as nails & highly recognizable. Before tossing them on my bike and taking them for a spin, I brought them into the studio and shot these photos of them fresh outta the box. If you weren’t able to snag a pair from the first batch, then keep your ear to the ground because word on the street is they have more on the way. Until then, check out more detail shots below and watch the video they dropped to promote these one of a kind FGFS bars.

TURF Bikes just released a new T-Shirt to the mix of products available on their store. Living in San Francisco we rarely see stars, and often times the moon is the only light that makes it through the fog. Pick up one of these moon phase tees before they’re gone for good.

RAMON ANTONIO – BIKE CHECK

3 Comments Bike Shots, Product Shots

RamonAntonio_FGFS_BikeCheck_TreeSprocket
Ramon Antonio recently built up a new FGFS bike, so we took the time to shoot some photos of it before he runs it into the ground from everyday wear and tear. The definition of a Fixed Gear Freestyle bike has changed dramatically, and it’s wild to recollect on how the evolution of the geometry has changed over the last decade. This might be the farthest thing removed from where we originally started, and I’m not sure if this is the final solution, but it’s definitely a sick looking build and is on the far end of the spectrum. Check out a complete parts breakdown as well as more photos below.

A couple weeks ago I met up w/ Ed “Wonka” Laforte and cruised around San Francisco’s China Town. We wondered up and down the network of alleyways in search of spots that we may have previously overlooked. What Chi town lacks in french fires, it more than makes up for in congested streets riddled with trash & clothes hung out to dry. Ed has been riding his signature frame from Capone Bikes for a little more than a month now and has been going harder than ever on it. Keep your eyes peeled for more photos from this day coming soon.

Wheel Talk - Aerodynamics Kit - Front
Tobi Whaley - Wheel Talk - SF 3
Tobi Whaley and I collaborated on making a kit out of the “Aerodynamics” graphic I recently released. The development of this kit has been in the works for a while now, and is just now coming into fruition. It’ll be rad to see Wheel Talk on more people than just those in the Fixed Gear Freestyle community. Pre-orders have closed, but hit up Wheel Talk Road on his social channels and he might be able to do something for you. Read more below to check out other shots and close ups of the kit.

With only 30 available, these 3/4 sleeve baseball shirts are going to go fast. The 3M reflective print is designed to light you up at night, and keep you safe from those rogue cars on the streets. While the bald cat and arrows on the back are there for those concerned with wind resistance and shaving seconds on the track. Head over to our store and pick one up HERE before they’re gone for good. Each order comes with decals and an assorted sticker pack, available while supplies last.

PREMIER FITS | TROPICAL SERIES

No Comments Lifestyle, Product Shots

Here’s a couple photos that Devon Lawson took of me while we were hanging out in The Mission a while back. If there’s one thing The Mission is good for, it’s quality Mexican food and toys that only cost you a quarter. Check out one of my favorite Premier Fits hats from their tropical series. They’re always coming out with some of the sickest headwear and always encorporate wild fabrics / materials.

BREEZY EXCURSION | BAY AREA

No Comments Lifestyle, Product Shots

The ferry is my method of choice when crossing The Bay to and from SF everyday. Bryan Dempler hitched a ride w/ me on our way to Alameda last Saturday to film with a bunch of the local Fixed Freestyle scene here in the Bay Area. That Best (Breezy Excursion) Tee pops off too hard and rings a subtle truth. The Bay is one of the best places to live. It has weather like you wouldn’t believe, one of the largest FGFS communities out there, and a public transportation system allows you to go where ever without having to own an automobile. Personally I don’t have the patience to sit in traffic and prefer to blow hitting obstacles along the way, but that’s just me.
