Here’s a photo of Anthony Combs at this year’s Fijate in Puerto Rico. It was hot as hell and humid beyond belief, the entire time we were there. We were constantly fighting to keep cool and hydrated, using every means necessary. Whether it was a water bottle shower, nuke warm Medalla, or a good old fashion Puerto Rican Gatorade “Gasolina“. I didn’t think it was possible, but I’m pretty sure I sweated out just about everything I drank. Hardly went pee at all during the trip.
Here’s a bunch of Instagram photos that I took during our trip to Puerto Rico for this year’s Fijate 2012. The guys from PRFIXED flew a bunch of us out there to put on a demo and help promote the Fixed Freestyle scene on their tropical island home. Words can not even begin to describe the amount of fun we all had during our short stay in one of the most beautiful locations I’ve ever been. The friendly locals, wild nightlife, insane street spots, and strong sense of community between cyclists made this a trip that I’ll never forget. Can’t wait until next years Fijate.
On September 26th, The guys from the Grime will be hosting a premiere of Shredwell2 at the Chrome Store in NY. All ages are welcome, those 21+ get to drink for free. If you are in NY, or live anywhere remotely close to NY, than I suggest you make your way out there. The Chrome store is located at (238 Mulberry St. New York, NY 10012)
Here’s a couple pictures of my most current Specialized PFIX build. If you look closely you can see a fly on my bike in both shots. For those who are interested, I’m running 30×10, w/ 175mm cranks, 420ac Sadio Booster Light Fork, Sadio Hoops, Specialized Compound Tires, YNOT Straps, & Sadio 420 Bars.
Anthony Combs is a straight madman when he rides, and this photo of him ejecting from the cockpit underlines that fact. Anybody that rides Fixed Freestyle knows that it isn’t always easy to bail off the bike. Foot retention can be both your best friend and your worst enemy. But Ant seemed to have no problem muscling his bike out from underneath him while we were riding around SF the other day. I’ve never seen anybody cannonball off their bike like that before.
Here’s a couple photos that TerryB took of all the homies hanging out at the Man Up or Shut Up pre party a couple weeks ago. We spent the night listening to music, watching old fixed videos, and drinking heavy thanks to an endless supply of free drink tickets. It’s not very often that we’re all under one roof, which probably explains why things got so rowdy. Check out more below. Photo Credit : Terry Barentsen Read more
Here’s a look at The Grime‘s very own Anthony Combs posted up next to his size Small Ghost build. It’s amazing to watch the transformation of Fixed Freestyle frames over the last few years. There have been a ton of stabs in the dark, but I think we’re getting close to developing a standard for FGFS frames.
Jeff Dempler has been on a roll lately after he started producing + editing his own web edits, and got picked up by Destroy Bicycles.
Here’s a photo that I took of Mike Schmitt posted up next to his freshly built Grime Ghost while we were on tour in Seattle. I feel like white bikes went out of style a couple years ago, as everybody veered away from matching color schemes and murdered out their ride w/ shades of black + chrome. Real stoked to see that The Grime is getting all Tony Montana w/ it, and brining back the white bike.
