As you all know Ed Wonka is now on CHROME, and they have him all laced up ever since they started making shoes last year. Their latest pair of kicks the “Southside” are made from stiff leather giving em’ a classy look & superior hold. Their patented sole & narrow fit give you great pedal connection w/ easy access in and out of the straps.


Here’s just a taste of some of the photos that my roommate Bryan Dempler has been shooting since he upgraded to a 7D last week. We’ve been going out on rides around the city w/ our cameras on the daily. Getting some of those iconic city shots, not to mention some pretty killer riding ones in between. He just made a Flickr account today. You can check out more of his photos HERE. Photo Credit : Bryan Dempler


Scott came up on this handmade YNOT Gulper Bag from Ed, as a sort of hand me down now that he’s on CHROME. Here’s a couple shots of Scott sporting that black & yellow as we packed up and moved on to another spot in Golden Gate Park. The bag isn’t available on their web store yet, but definitely keep your eyes peeled for more of Tom Mosher’s custom creations.


Here’s some photos that I popped off of Scott before my camera battery died. I really need to get a battery grip for that extended battery life. The top photo is probably one of my favorite photos I’ve shot in a while. I recently picked up a Canon 18-135mm f3.5. That fresh glass makes all the difference. Now I just need to pick up a tripod and pan head to get some clean panning shots.


After our quick little session @ the SF skate park Scott & I rode to 3rd & Army one of San Francisco’s most legendary skate spots. Here’s a photo that Scott took of me hitting an ice pick across the entire top of this table. The bottom photo is a screen shot off of a video clip of the ice to tuck out.


Scott & I made our way through the mission district, and rode to the SF skate park. Here’s the one photo I snapped off while before we finished off before we packed up and high tailed it to another spot. Definitely a fun little park, need to make my way back there to ride sometime. I didn’t know San Fransisco had a skate park, thought everyone just rode street in the city.


Yesterday I went riding through the Mission District w/ Scott Horton & we stopped at this yellow guard rail to snap off a couple quick photos. I’ve been shooting a lot more photos lately as apposed to always shooting video. Rediscovering why I love photography.


Today I went out for a ride through Golden Gate Park w/ my roommate (Jeff’s older brother) Bryan Dempler. Towards the end of our ride we made a pit stop & played with some ice pick combos on this decayed planter box. Photo Credit : Bryan Dempler


Last weekend, Ed Wonka, Scott Horton, and myself (Matt Reyes) spent some time cleaning up The Wheel Talk Compound, after months of neglect. Nothing a hose, some rakes, shovels, and brooms can’t fix. We had our good friend Mikul Eriksson come out and w/ a bunch of his video equipment and film our little afternoon session. Totally digging the way this video turned out, nothing but chill vibes and tandem lines.


Here’s some screen shots from an edit I’ve been putting together of our boy Jeff Dempler. Keep your eyes peeled for this dropping in the next week or so. It’s gunna be really dirt heavy, JeffyD’s strong suit.
