Takuya Sakamoto took this photo of me riding street on our last day night in Puerto Rico. While we were there we rode some of the sickest street spots I’ve ever layed eyes on. Such beautifully rugged architecture that it felt like they were made to be ridden. This huge bank spot is just a taste of the magic hidden deep within Puerto Rico. (Trick : feeble pop up to hop into the bank)
Here’s an iMiNUSD advertisement that I made from a relatively old photo of Anthony Combs. The wood grain wrap job on his G.O.A.T is a dead give away of that. It’s been a minute since I’ve been in DTSJ to ride, going to have to change that real soon. Who’s down for a BBQ Jam on the iMiNUSD ramps at Jeff Dempler’s house?
Aáron Borrás from PRFIXED was out on the course popping off photos as we rode the ramps at this year’s Fijate. With nothing but Gasolina keeping us going we went hard in this unfamiliar climate, using our shirts as towels, instead of articles of clothing. Dunking our heads in water, and putting ice in our hats didn’t seem to have much effect as we melted beneath the hot Puerto Rican sun. There didn’t seem to be much escape from the humidity, but I don’t think any of us really care as we rode our bikes, and hung out w/ the locals in what has to be the best vacation I’ve ever been on.

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
