the orchestration: ff power hour XXI


ff power hour 11 from antonyoxxx on Vimeo.
i have been waiting for this day for so damn long. fixie factory's power hour is back, and it's as strange as when we last seent it. amazing stunts like jumping over girls, action in triples lines, and a really nutty follow the leader line. oh and the music is random as fuck.

ah, i've missed you so.

like old times: jason clary for state bicycle co


State Bicycle Co. - Jason Clary - Undefeated SF from State Bicycle Co. on Vimeo.
with ride n style coming up,  we should remember that jason is indeed the winner of the last one. state bicycle co has been backing him for a while now as he's been riding their undefeated frameset for that duration. he got in touch with macaframa's colin arlen to film this one (it's hella maca-esque) where he basically tears through san francisco. i'm still trying to wrap my head around the part where he nose mannys the median at a silly speed.

pad crashing: one spot, two days with cole ruffing


One Spot, Two Days from Cole Ruffing on Vimeo.
i get excited over cole's riding. one reason would be his ability to utilize a space well. i remember in one edit he pulled a nose 3 drop in the tightest space which really sums up what he's about.  take this for example. this spot is definitely a smidge longer than a bike lengths and he still goes on to do gnarly shit.  those last 2 flat tricks tho. inhuman.

phillip arellano been writing for lockedcog for a while and he's been providing a ton of original stuff (which is refreshing) for the blog. recently he went to visit johnny coward and the dudes over at LDG in huntington beach. there's a whole lot stirring around in that shopfront (though it's been laying in the background for a minute). you should give it a read!

the rats: denis bejtic's concept bikes // ratshit // streets of toronto


concept bikes // ratshit // streets of toronto from RATSHIT // on Vimeo.
okay so enough of that sappy track bike shit. let's get hella strange and stuff. denis bejtic recently dropped this one for concept bikes. it's fuckin' weird. and i loved every gat damn second of it. it kind of reminds me of the wrahw witchtape series where there was a random assortment of cuts mashed into one lovely, incoherently coherent mess. it's rad. and the tricks are silly as fuck. nose down some stairs? insane. WATCH IT. WATCH IT MEOW.

the contrast: back to origins


Back to Origins from Stefaniya Gutovska on Vimeo.
so i stumbled upon this one, and i kinda dig the vibes. i think this is something we could all kind of relate to considering that the reason why a good amount of us are here is because of taking track bikes where they shouldnt be. yeah, this thing could be seen as a little artsy fartsy and preachy, and yeah the bikes may not be ravaging race machines, but fuck it- i dig it. hoodlum bikes with stickers plastered all over them really put a sharp contrast to the surrounding nature, which is rad. maybe you'll like it too.

the shiny bits: 2014 soma rush frameset


(via soma)
i've always had a soft spot for the soma rush and though it may not be the most technologically advanced or lightest frame on the market, it's definitely one of those mainstays that's been around for the longest time. plus, it looks njs without the njs price tag. this year, the folks over at some decided to dip this frame in shiny stuff. i likes me some shiny stuff. see it here.
