MICHAEL PENROSE – SF SMITH

No Comments WT Action Shots

For every spot they kill with caps or tear out completely, there’s another one that’s finishing up being built. The only trouble with that is riding it before they have a chance to realize what they’ve made and kill it with caps again. It’s a vicious cycle, but with all of the construction going on in SF, it’s easy to find something new. Here are a couple angles of Michael Penrose doing a smith line at a spot we just recently stumble across. Keep your eyes peeled for the clip in the upcoming Wheel Talk full length.

MICHAEL PENROSE – SF STREETS

Being a part of the FGFS community is perhaps the best part about riding Fixed Gear Freestyle. The scene is so tightly knit that you don’t have to have met somebody to feel like you’re already best buds. It’s this small thing that we share in common that breaks the ice and bonds us all together. Nearly all of the friends I have at this point stem from biking in one way or another. When Michael Penrose hit me up asking if he could stay with us in SF, our response was an immediate yes. Having never met him before he stepped foot in our house, we felt as though we already knew him through watching him ride in videos and the most recent SMC Trip to Arizona // “Iced Out Arizona“. Here are some photos of him riding in down town San Francisco mid-way through his stay. Be on the look out for more photos & videos coming soon.

Last weekend Ian Walker came out to ride around the city with us and stack clips for an upcoming film project we’ve been working on. Ian is one of the few dudes remained true to his roots and still rides 700c/29″ wheels. It’s riders like Ian & JBall that help prove the fact that FGFS will always consist of multiple wheel sizes.

On the weekdays the Financial District is a complete bust. It’s packed full of people traffic, and guards who watch the security cameras religiously. But on the weekends it clears out and opens up some of the most well protected parts of the city. Here are some photos of Ed “Wonka” Laforte & I roaming around the neighborhood earlier last week. Check out more photos from this day below.

As we gear up to release the video from Tadashi Nakamura’s stay in San Francsico. I figured now was the time to release some of the remaining photos I took on his last day in town. We did some sight seeing as we explored some of the iconic parts of the city that I knew we hadn’t ventured into yet. We ate lunch in a small garden off the freeway and rode along the shore following whatever road would bring us closer to The Bay. Keep your eyes peeled for Tadashi’s video later this week.
