It hasn’t even been a week and I can already tell this is the nicest seat I’ve ever owned. The homies over at MASH SF recently set me up with one of the new San Marco Alpine Wide Saddles and the ergonomic shape is already doing wonders for my bum. I’ve ridden some pretty terrible saddles with a ton of cushion and I can honestly say that shape is everything. Don’t bother getting a gel pad for your tushy, just invest in a seat with a decent cut. It makes all the difference. Head over to MASH SF and check out the other San Marco Ragale saddle they just released.

TURF BIKES – NIGHTSTICK PEGS

In honor of the release of Mike Schmitt’s latest edit I decided to post a bunch of studio shots I took of his signature part, the TURF Nightstick. At 4.9″ long these are the longest plastic pegs available on the market and were designed by MTS himself. The added length makes since for wider wheel diameters and give you more room to play with while remaining in contact with the grind. If you haven’t seen his new web edit “The Twilight Zona“, then read more and see first hand why he’s been dubbed the name “Grind King”.

I’ve been mobbing around on the 2016 DASH for more than a month now and haven’t changed a thing about it. Eventually I’ll beef up the gearing and toss on some pegs but for now it has everything I need to let loose and have a good time. I’m really feeling the new color combo and gum Helix V2 Tires which photograph incredibly. Far too often an all black bike gets lost in the background and makes it difficult to depict what’s happening, but that’s a problem of the past because these tires pop off hard. Huge shout out to BOMBTRACK Bicycle Co for continuing to produce top of the line products that have surpassed every FGFS bike I’ve ever ridden.

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

4 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.
