Mike T. Schmitt and the announcer for the Golden State Warriors were the Master of Ceremonies at the 2013 Red Bull Ride & Style. He kept it real interesting with all the hilarious commentary on the riders. His inside knowledge on everybody over the years definitely payed off that day as he talked about my cat Stella, Devon “the people’s champ”, and how he spent christmas w/ the Santos family one year. I had so many people come up to me after the event and say how much they loved Mike on the mic. Definitely need to have him as an MC next year.
It’s been great having Mike Schmitt back in San Francisco. He gets off work around three everyday, giving us plenty of time to catch some clips and ride around before the sun sets. He’s always making obstacles out of trash off the street, and is constantly coming up w/ crazy ways to hit shit.
Here’s a photo that I took of Mike T Schmitt riding his signature MTS Burro Mudflaps, which are now available in Staph Infection Red. The ability to customize your inserts is a nice touch. They come stock with a meat insert and a photo of Mike’s open knee while in surgery. For those who don’t know Mike got some crazy Island funk while we were in Puerto Rico and had to fly back to the US to get Surgery. Hense the custom colorway, and choice in inserts. I find it funny that they come with a photo of meat considering Mike is vegan.
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.
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.

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.
If you don’t already know, Mike Schmitt has been off his bike ever since we left Puerto Rico. I’m sure most of you have seen the horrifying pictures he’s been posting of his wound. Here’s a photo of him gapping out to feeble while we were on tour in LA (Los Angeles) filming for Shredwell2. Mike’s hubba game is unreal, I don’t know how he’s so calm hucking himself onto the things he does. His balls must weigh a ton.
Here’s a couple screen shots I pulled from SHREDWELL2 of Mike Schmitt riding in down town San Jose. The dude standing next to him w/ the patch just wanted to come over and show the camera some love. The ledge leading into the Guadalupe River has to be the longest hubba I’ve ever seen anybody hit on fixed. Too many stairs to count, too locked in to care. Really digging that custom SW2 shirt he’s wearing.
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
