It’s always a shame to see a spot go, and the ledges on Gough and McCoppin is a spot that will be greatly missed, by both the bike and skate communities alike. Jeffrey Munoz caught this photo of me as I learned feeble tuck no handers, just a few days before the capped the shit out of em’. It brings a tear to my eye that someone would ruin such a beautiful thing.
Living in San Francisco, I rarely get the chance to ride transitions. It’s street or nothing. So last week when we were riding by Potrero Skate Park in the Mission, I had to make a stop and ride it. At a place like this, the best thing to do is just drop your bag and start riding, before the locals get a chance to start shouting shit. They usually quiet down once they see you can hold your own.

Snapped this shot of everyone’s favorite Joshua Boothby when he spent the day in the city a while back. We rode this skinny downhill just long enough to catch some clips and this photo before taking off. When I rolled up to the spot later that week, I was sad to find that they had capped the entire length of the ledge making it nearly impossible to ride. City planning sure knows how to kill a good time. Fun Police.
Here’s a look at Jonah Kessel’s fresh set of SADIO Viper Rims (32mm). I took this while he was staying in San Francisco last weekend to spend some time filming with me. I love rims that are drilled offset and have eyelets for added strength. The last thing I want is spokes pulling through, and volcanoing the rim.
Here’s a look at my current Specialized PFIX build. I just recently got on the production model PFIX after riding the same prototype frame for 9+ months. I decided to rattle can this one something special since I’ve been riding a nearly colorless set up for what feels like years now. It’s hard to tell who’s who when everyone’s bike is murdered out.
Matt Rice popped off this photo of me hopping over this chain to bank when we went to Oakland to ride some uncharted street spots. Taken a while back, I completely forgot about this until I saw he posted it earlier today. Looks bigger than I remember.
