a while back there was a whirlwind of FGFS riders who got down with blocboi fame's fixiemusic. if you haven't downloaded that shit, then something might be wrong with you because that shit is BUCK. like him or not, the guy is a real chill dude and he's doing what he loves- ridin bikes & making music. he let me know that this one was going to drop and i'm pretty sure i'm gonna be yelling "I RODE MY FIXIE TO THE TRAAAAAP" all day tomorrow.
by the way, if you don't think this guy is for real- he's got an unknown LV1 as his other runner. you can't roll that to the trap dude.... he knows what he's doing folks.
Joe Mckeag - Welcome to Bombtrack Version 2 from Royal HC on Vimeo.
so before the actual edit came out. the homies over at royal HC gave me the chance to see this say... "directors cut" of joe mckeag's welcome to bombtrack edit. back then, the fixieverse kinds didn't know what happened to joe- the guy kinda laid low. when they showed this to me, this was probably the first time i've seen joe on a bike in a good while so you know i lost my shit (everyone else did too when the final version came out). thing was, i had to keep my mouth shut til then. shit is still amazing.
Griffith Park Fixed Gear Edit from Gerald Aragon on Vimeo.
the massan edit really got to this gerald guy so he decided to have a go with it. same song, different dude, different location. am i mad? hell no! there's a hill, there's a track bike, there's MF doom involved somehow- if i had the time and someone to film me, i'd do the same thing yo.
Slurpcult Spring1 Video Teaser from Slurpcult on Vimeo.
the fam at slurpcult just dropped their spring teaser. i probably have a cood amount of this stuff already lurking in my closet causing a SHARP contrast to my almost all black and white and gray wardrobe. watch it. then buy stuff. that's how it works people.
Destroy Bikes: New Old Stock from Gnarlos Rodriguez on Vimeo.
almost 3 years of clips is a whole lotta clips to be sitting on. you kinda dont see much of the homie alex AKA gnarlos so if you forgot, the guy holds it down for destroy in our wonderful californian capital city of sacramento. the guy fits right in with that profile of destroy riders- they hit shit that is deemed unrideable and then do that shit as fast as they can. for a while, that last one was his profile pic and i always wondered where the footy of that was.... nothing like a good one to the sack as an ender.

FOAD x Still Pour: San Francisco from FOAD on Vimeo.
so i'm playing catch up right now after that whole lagfest called BHSK's redbull ride n style photo coverage. the foad guys and the stillpour guys came up (or down, depends on wo you're talking about) to SF to partake in the fixie holiday. both groups are super unique yest they all have that same "fuck it" attitude towards riding.
too much good shit. watch it.
i'm a sucker for fast bike setups and it looks like unknown will be adding to their already great stable of frames. this is the SL1. 1 inch head tube, double butted 6061 aluminum tubing, traditional track geo... looks like they're aiming for the look and feel of that omnipresent cannondale track. i dig it. look for it soon.

i dont know what matt reyes had for breakfast that day, i don't know if he's a secret superhero, i dont know really what it is.... but matt reyes is non fucking stop. get more of the repeat winner after the jump.
this is JD. it almost seems like this guy is perpetually injured in some sort of way so when you see that he doesn't have that somewhat iconic wrist brace of his on, you know that shit will go down. get more the jonathan after the jump.
elliot milner is electric when it comes to the technical riding style. then he's doing those bmx based tricks, he's got that slow slung and snappy riding style. here and there, however he has moments that contrast that style. get more words and pics after the jump.
so for the second year in a row, joe mckeag wins the most photos taken through my lens award. the guy packs so many tricks into runs that it becomes like rapidfire clicking away on my cheap ass DSLR. get more of the most photogenic after the jump.
jakob santos is a different kind of beast altogether. the guy rides like a damn train and everything is NEVER EVER pulled half assed with the guy. it's so awesome with him too- see why after the jump.
josh has changed the field of FGFS. there's a reason why people are kind of expecting a backflip at this event. if you go back to this event's inception, he's come a really long way. see more after the jump.

antonyo is the man and i'm a fucking huge fan. this guy will do every single fricking stall variation that you can imagine- even the weird shit. get some more story and photos after the jump!
