35MM CHINA – MATT REYES

There’s nothing like digging up old photos to bring back memories. Sometimes it feels like you’re resurrecting the dead with the things you almost forgotten about. I’m sure I’m not the only one who looks through my phone in the morning to piece together what happened the night before. A photo can take you right back to that place and helps paint a clearer image in your mind.

Here are a bunch of photos from that one time we all rode bikes in China. What an experience that was. Almost forgot all about these shots. Check out more below. (more…)

CRANKSGIVING 2016 – DAY TWO

Stepping things up a notch. The day after Thanksgiving Bryan Dempler and I rode twice as far as the day before. We started things off with a solid breakfast, picked up a 3 pack of tall cans and set out to explore a handful of places we’ve never been. One of which was this massive cement wall that was just banked enough to climb up and ride across. The only sketchy part was trying not to blow out at the bottom. After that we hopped back on the dusty cattle trail and watched the sun set over our hometown. Check out more photos below.

CRANKSGIVING 2016 – DAY ONE

With our cameras packed, bikes in hand, Bryan Dempler & I hopped on the train heading home for the holidays. We’ve been next door neighbors since the 3rd grade, and make most trips home together. On our first day back in town we established our bearings by ventured outwards towards Uvas reservoir where we had drinks by the lake and shot a handful of photos. I ended up getting a pinch flat airing out of this bank but managed to ride the 6 or 7 miles home on the rim just fine. Check out more photos below, and keep your eyes peeled for shots from day two.

SUNDAY ACROSS THE GATES

Last Sunday we met up, packed some brews, grabbed the camera, and kicked a loop across the Golden Gate bridge. Big thanks to Bryan Dempler & Ben Vrazo for getting me out of the house and out of the bubble. Check out more photos below.

MATT REYES – LEFTOVER CRUST


Feast your eyes on some of the leftover crust Terry Barentsen cut together before we grabbed a slice and started filming the NYC Pizza video. I’ve been really enjoying this series of day edits Terry has been releasing and am glad we had the chance to film while I was in town last week. Keep your ear to the ground for more of Terry’s work.

35MM – PRICKLY PEAR JAM

The Prickly Pear Jam is one FGFS event that won’t soon be forgotten. Both by those who attended and those who kept up with it around the globe. It threw a can of gasoline on the fire and stoked out the entire community. Equivalent to what Mid West Mayhem did for the scene more than 6 years ago. If you missed any of the event coverage than here’s a little bit more for you to marinate on. Stay broke, shoot film. Olympus OM-1 (35mm)

PRICKLY PEAR JAM VIDEO


This morning Mike Schmitt released the official recap of the Prickly Pear Jam that happened in Arizona a couple weeks ago. This 10 minute video is packed full of good times, vicious heat, and collective mix of familiar faces. My favorite part of the video and possibly the funniest part of the day was when Mike pulled a 180 crook in flip flops for a quick 20 bucks. At which point everyone came together and scrounged up enough to pay the debt. Shout out to Zane Meyer for all the arial coverage, and to Kai Yao for shooting secondary angles. Press play to see first hand why this was one of the best FGFS events that has happened in a really long time.

TARCK – MATT & MIKE IN SF

I’m trying to figure out where to even begin with this one and I think it makes the most sense to explain what the term “Tarck” means. If you’ve been riding fixed gear for more than 5 or 6 years, you probably already know, but simply put it’s tricks on track bikes. It can be both something you do and used as a term to describe a type of bike. It’s what Fixed Gear Freestyle started out as and has been making a silent resurgence as of lately. Mike Schmitt & I met up in downtown San Francisco one gloomy afternoon and had a ton of fun filming for this one. He stripped out the threads on his rear wheel trying to foot plant 180 off the fire hydrant, but we didn’t let that stop us from having a good time. Be on the look out for more track bike videos like this peppered into the usual FGFS coverage.
