FIXIEBOYZ408 – DOWN TOWN SF

Today was a good one. The sun was shinning, Fleet Week was in full effect and the FIXIEBOYZ made their way up to SF to ride bikes for the day. Whenever we get the gang together I try to get a family photo which usually that means setting the timer and running into the shot. In this case there are two sandwiched at the beginning and end of this post. Kameren tried to fight a security guard, but the dude that kicked us out from the huge ONE down town gave everyone one more try before giving us the boot.

Instead of spending Valentines Day with the lady, I spent the afternoon riding around SF with Christian Ustarroz this year. I couldn’t believe some of the combos he was putting together and was completely blown away by at how solid his riding is. Keep your eyes peeled for the clips we filmed in the upcoming Wheel Talk full length coming out later this year. Until then check out more photos below.

This morning I was clearing out the archives I came across these photos from when I first got on Bombtrack and started riding the DASH earlier this year. It’s been more than 7 months since then and I think it’s safe to say that this is by and far the best FGFS build straight outta the box that I’ve ever ridden. The small wheel base feels like a dream and makes it effortless to snap 360s around and sit off to the side of the bike. It’s a completely different beast to tame and has made me fall in love with FGFS all over again. Check out more photos below.

On Saturday the FIXIEBOYZ408 packed their bikes, piled into a van and drove up to San Francisco to ride with us for the day. We met up at 3rd & Army, and then ventured into Hunters Point from there. Our goal was to work our way to Hilltop park and hit whatever spots we found along the way until eventually arriving at San Francisco’s oldest skatepark, The Dish. After that we roamed around the neighborhood until we came across this abandoned school with a bunch of unique things to ride. Keep your eyes peeled for footage of this day coming from both us and the Fixie Boyz themselves. // 07.18.2015

MIKE & MATT “THE DISH” SF

Earlier in the day somebody asked if the skatepark was going to be crowded, but when we got there it looked like nobody had been there in years. Built in the 1970’s, “The Dish” is San Francisco’s oldest standing skatepark and is tucked away in the hills of Hunters Point. If you’re not familiar with the area, it’s notorious for being one of hardest neighborhoods in SF, and isn’t a spot you’d want to show up and session by yourself. I shot a couple photos of Mike Schmitt doing these one footed table tops on the tumorous hump that bulged out of the center of the dish. Then I handed the camera off to him and he shot this photo of one of the local kids with me airing overhead in the background. We brought up the idea of hosting an event here, but haven’t decided. What do you guys think?

RAMON ANTONIO – SF CITY HALL

The other day we all met up after work to kick it and get in a quick session before the sun went down in the city. I brought my camera along with me and caught a couple flicks of Ramon Antoino III clicking an XUP off this pizza ledge. He took a pretty heavy slam before taking his jacket off, circling around and nailing it for the clip. Lucas Bockelmann was there to capture it all and was the main reason why we decided to meet up in the first place. Check out another photo of the slam below and keep your eyes peeled for the clips in the next video Ratpack has cooking up.

MICHAEL PENROSE – ALLEYWAY

This is one of the spots in our neighborhood that we ride passed all the time but never stop to shoot. Michael Penrose and myself were about to do just that, when I decided to hit the breaks and circle back to catch a couple shots of him hopping into the alleyway. Filming with Penrose opened my eyes to the fact that we rarely shoot photos anymore. We’re constantly caught up in catching the clip before security comes through and gives us the boot. Now that we have multiple cameras on deck it’ll be easier having one devoted to shooting stills. Check out more photos below.

Everybody has dreams and Anthony Combs has dreams to one day sore high over the hoop and dunk his bicycle. With only seconds left on the clock we were able to capture a couple quick photos before the buzzer rang and he scored the game winning shot. Bringing home the title, saving the day and anything else sports related you can think of. He’s been riding Ed Wonka’s signature frame by Capone Bikes for a couple months now and has been real stoked on the upgrade. Be on the look out for a complete bike check of his build coming next week. Until then check out more photos below.
