Stills to match the motion. I’m about to add a few finishing touches to the video I shot with Jiwoo Kim while he was in San Francisco a week ago and figured I’d post some of the photos we caught while filming. It was great having Jiwoo in town to break up the day and give me the motivation I needed to get out and film something. Here are a handful of images for you to sink your teeth into before the video drops later tonight.

Jiwoo Kim came to San Francisco last week and spent some time riding, filming, and shooting photos with us while he was here. He spent nearly a week with us before hopping on a bus and heading to Southern California to ride with some of the other FGFS dudes in California. I just finished cutting together the footage we shot and am gearing up to release it later tonight. Until then scroll through and check out some of the photos that Jongwon Lee (LJ) captured in-between clips.

Beers don’t normally grow on trees, but they might as well have during yesterday’s TCB cross race. The flyer said something about bringing a backpack and a handful of sanitizer, which left us with more than a handful of questions. It was a race around a track that was littered with bicycle debris, trash, feathers and warm beers that were hidden throughout the course. Each lap counted as a point as well as each piece of trash collected along the way. At the end of the 30 minute race the points were tallied and the park looked cleaner than ever. Shout out to RJ Rabe & Ramon for hosting this one and keep an ear to the ground for next month’s.

No Comments Trips, VIDEOS


Alright everyone, this is the moment you’ve all been waiting for. This morning Mike Schmitt released this 14 minute video from our recent trip to Arizona for the Prickly Pear Jam. Here’s what he had to say. “Chain Gang was filmed the week of The Prickly Pear Jam event in May 2016 in Arizona. Having so many riders from all over in one location gave us the opportunity to really stack footage. Shout out to all the riders who came out to Arizona and rode with us. We dedicate this video to everyone still riding a FGFS bike.” Press play, check out some screen shots below and enjoy 14 minutes of some of the best fixie footwork in the game.

I’ve become real good friends with Edward Orellana over the last year and a half and always look forward to seeing him in the morning. He works at the Chrome Coffee shop in the SOMA and is easily the nicest dude in the neighborhood. He’s always cracking jokes, laughing, and I’m pretty certain he knows everybody who comes in on a first name basis. Recently I had a chance to wheel his Reminton track build into the studio and shoot some photos of it. There’s nothing quite like a NJS Track frame. Scroll through to check out more photos as well as a complete parts run down.

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.

I met Patrick Curley in Sacramento after NAHBS earlier this year and have been hanging out with him more and more now that he lives in San Francisco. He’s a part of the Sacaframa crew, which has created quite a name for themselves in the track scene over the last year. They’ve lit a fire under my ass and have played a huge part in getting me stoked on track bikes again. Check out more photos of Patrick with his MASH Cinelli Bolt below and be on the look out for more coming soon.

PRICKLY PEAR JAM VIDEO

1 Comment Events, VIDEOS


This morning Mike Schmitt released the official recap of the Prickly Pear Jam that happened in Arizona a couple weeks ago. This 10 minute video is packed full of good times, vicious heat, and collective mix of familiar faces. My favorite part of the video and possibly the funniest part of the day was when Mike pulled a 180 crook in flip flops for a quick 20 bucks. At which point everyone came together and scrounged up enough to pay the debt. Shout out to Zane Meyer for all the arial coverage, and to Kai Yao for shooting secondary angles. Press play to see first hand why this was one of the best FGFS events that has happened in a really long time.
