We’ve been gearing up for the release of Word Is Bond for quite some time now and have never generated this type of hype for a free online video before. Usually the only videos that have premiere’s are DVD’s, but considering the amount of time we spent making this monumental video, we decided to make an exception. Here’s some screen shots from my section to tide you over until the official release on 04.20.2014. Check out more screen grabs below.

As promised here’s some more screen shots from The upcoming Turf Bikes Video, “Word Is Bond”. Ed “Wonka” LaForte’s section is sure to impress considering there’s few people who are willing and able to try some of the tricks Ed does. The official web release is on 4.20.2014 less than 5 days from now. If you missed the last 2 premiere’s then you can still make the one in China going down on April 19th. Otherwise kick back and wait to watch it on the internet just like everybody else. Check out more screen grabs below. Read more
Christian Hamrick collected clips for the Turf Bikes “Word Is Bond” Video while he was on the Coast to Ghost Trip and during a short visit he made to the West Coast. Hambone is currently living in Kansas City, a place which I’m told has unreal street spots. We might just have to make a trip out there to investigate these so called spots. If you live near San Jose, come out to the premiere being held at iMiNUSD on Saturday April 12th. We’re going to meet up and ride earlier during the day and then head to ID doors open at 7:30. Be there or be square. Circles only, no invite, all ages are welcome. Check out more screen shots below.
Tonight we’re premiering “Word Is Bond” in San Francisco. If you live in the area you should come out to Lower Branch at 8pm & kick it with the rest of the Fixed Freestyle scene here in the Bay. Here’s some screen shots of Jimmy Watcha, as motivation to make it to the event. Jimmy may be the youngest member on the Turf Mob, be he holds his own and manhandles his bike like a lion tamer. Come see for yourself, we’ll be at this address HERE. Check out more below. Read more
As promised here’s some more screen shots from the upcoming Turf Bikes video “Word Is Bond“. I’m in the midst of wrapping up editing the last couple sections and adding the icing on top of the cake. We’ve been filming over the last year and finally have something that we feel strongly about and are just about ready to share w/ the world. Until then you’ll just have to soak in these screen shots of Mike Schmitt. Read more
Yesterday Lucas Bockelmann went out filming w/ Ed Wonka around the streets of San Francisco. I went over to Ed’s house last night to peep some of the footage and eat some pizza. This huge tooth hangover was by far one of the gnarlier things they shot. I’m super stoked on the look of Lucas’s new HVX video camera which he’s currently using to film a video of all the dudes in Northern & Southern California.
I recently pulled a bunch of screen shots from Devon Lawson’s part in the upcoming Turf Bikes video. We’re currently wrapping up editing “Word Is Bond” and plan to have a premier or two before we release it. We’ll keep you posted on the details, but for now you’ll just have to marinate over these shots of Devon. Click the “Read More” to see more screen grabs Read more
Wheel Talk would like to welcome Thailand’s very own Jaoa Danaikrit as the newest member to the WT Team. Filmed in the Bay Area over the course of his 3 month stay in America. Jaoa is one of the most impressive riders I’ve ever had the privilege of shooting. He bring tricks to the table that not very many other riders have, take his monstrous icepicks and his lengthy nose manuals for instance. I’d like to go ahead and thank Jeff Dempler, Devon Lawson & Dew Sippawit for helping film this edit. Click the read more to check out a bunch of screen shots from the video.
From the ashes of The Grime, a new bike company has risen. TURF is a Fixed Gear Freestyle company established late 2013. We’ve spent the majority of this year filming all over the country with some of the best in the business to bring you a video that you won’t soon forget. This 2 minute teaser is just a taste of what’s to come. Keep your eyes peeled for the full length video dropping early 2014. WORD-IS-BOND
This is hands down Jeff Dempler’s best work yet. He’s released a few Solo edits over the course of this year, none of which hit harder than this one. He’s been around since the creation of Wheel Talk and was the one who pushed me to ride in the early years. All of the follow shots in this looked butter smooth and gave the video a fast pace feel. It’s been a strong year for us over here at Wheel Talk and we’re already brewing plans of attack for next year. Until then press play and enjoy. Read more
