Daniel Torres just posted this photo of our boy Jeff Dempler piecing together his glide cam, and getting ready to film out here on the West Coast. I’m always stoked to see the homies catching clips and filming, can’t wait to see what they’ve been working on.
Here’s a couple photos that I shot of Mike T Schmitt building up his bike in iMiNUSD a while back. I pretty sure this was the day that he got his bike back from Puerto Rico. Anyways the Ghost Frame is now on sale for only $329, which is a damn good deal considering what the price of frames used to be. Head into IMD to pick one up or order one online at Grime Bikes.
I recently got a pair of Medicine Man Bars from Grime Bikes. The new bars have a touch more back sweep, which helps w/ those hard impacts. The relaxed feel of the bars makes for a more comfortable ride, and more forgiving landings. Your wrists will thank you later, when they aren’t being broken off from tricks.
Mike Schmitt just recently got his bike back from Puerto Rico after leaving it there for 4 months while he was in recovery. He was out for a while, but is now back in full effect and rides around the city with me. We’ve been filming a ton and plan to drop a little something when the time is right. Read more below to check out the full spec list. Read more
Zane just dropped this teaser for the 2nd issue of Can’t Fool The Youth. Devon has a full section in this issue, and there’s a huge chunk of clips from our trip to Seattle. I’ve grown to love that Chrome van after all the traveling we’ve done in it. Check out this video and you’ll see what I mean. I can’t wait to watch the full thing, which is going to be premiered at this year’s Red Bull Ride & Style.
There’s nothing better than mobbing around w/ your friends, it’s probably the best part about riding. Hitting obstacles as they come, and crushing shit along the way. Mike and I are constantly exploring Golden Gate Park by linking together different trails. We’re always stumbling upon new spots in locations we thought we knew well. My good friend and roommate Bryan Dempler popped off this photo of us crushing down one of the many off beaten paths.
Here’s a photo of Jeff Dempler back when he first got on Destroy Bikes. Everytime we roll to his house, we hit this oversized curb cut along the way. Commuter tricks are the best part of riding Fixed Freestyle. Busting moves on the go helps keep things interesting, especially if you find yourself riding the same routes everyday.
Yesterday the homies Chris Marino & Scott Lyman came through with a couple Sony FS700′s equipped w/ Zeiss lenses to kick it & catch some clips of Anthony Combs, Mike Schmitt, and I. We spent the day filming in the SOMA blasting off fireworks, getting burned, and causing a ruckus. Shooting everything at 120-240 fps, we should have some pretty sweet slow mo shots coming your way.
It’s official Anthony Combs and Devon Lawson are the latest additions to the Wheel Talk Team. Their explosive style and killer ass sense of humor is what made them a perfect fit for the team. Not to mention the fact that Devo lives w/ me, and Combs is easily one of our best friends. It feels like less of a team and more like a family. Anyways, stop reading this and check out this video already.
