getting sweaty

Monique, obviously an avid reader of the Vice blog, sent me over a link of some great guy getting sweaty in one of our t-shirts, he’s working it for sure

today’s trick roundup

first up we have a video which does contain some tricks, but is most notable for all the crazy stuff that surrounds them. Tricks wise there’s a dope wheelie 180 from Wonka and switch hop up to 360 off a big ledge from Tom LaMarche, but it’s enjoyable to watch regardless of that rad stuff. WRAHW WITCHTAPE 3

next up we have two videos that oscar sent to me, both super live. James Meliota for FlyBikes, what can I say? Creative. Technical. Different. Weird. Amazing. Any of these plus whatever else I can’t be bothered to think of, this video is sick and shows an ability to think of spots in a totally different way, it’s inspiring

and last but definitely not least, here’s some ridiculous skating from Albert Nyberg. from the Newsoul skateboards promo ‘You got soul‘ (click to see the whole thing) this guy is ridiculously technical in a gnarly way. Loads of tricks I wouldn’t normally dig but so so rad how he does them and down/into/out of whatever, I mean you can take any trick in this and just boggle over how the hell he does it for like 10 minutes, crazy

new from momoiro bike

remember the best bike in the world? well the creators momoiro bike have pumped out something else, a road bike this time, and although it may not be quite as awesome as the first it is still pretty amazing, check it out

rocket bicycle life

I saw this video from Indonesian Rocket Bicycle over at prolly‘s and I rather enjoyed watching it. Plenty of fast & group riding, as well as slo mo shots and bad fixed gear tricks, way 2008 and it’s awesome. It’s so interesting to see the scene in other countries mirroring the progression we’ve already gone through here and in the US, and for all of those who didn’t experience it when it happened over here this video should give you a reasonable idea, check it

Jersey City Ride Portraits

Angelo Calilap took a series of very elegant bike portraits at the recent BikeJC Ride. Well composed bike portraits work for me, I mean there’s enough going on in matching the appearance of the rider to the bicycle to keep people interested, and with a whole series of them you can’t go wrong. Here are a few of my favourites from the day, as well as a few others from the portrait set

Table Mountain, 8am

Some great photos have been posted for your viewing pleasure over at Fixed Gear Cape Town. You’ve gotta love that scenery, all the sun and washed out colours seem so far away this chilly London eve, there’s frost out!

today’s trick roundup

First up here’s Marco’s run in the recent Kentalog Trick Contest held over in Osaka (which I believe he took first place in)

there are loads of other videos from the event to see HERE and a whole flickr set over at the Kentalog Photostream, including this deathly tweak (rad)

next up we have Sean Brian Rosner’s video for Fixed Cult, some sweet riding, clean 3s and a dope stall 180 at the end, good stuff

and finally here’s a baller gif spotted at Milano Fixed, mesmerising!

bloody synthetic lubricant

It sounds pretty bad right? This is a bloody synthetic bike lubricant made by Bored that I spotted over at Pedal Consumption, and I reckon it’s awesome, the packaging and branding is so on point!

Untitled and Veloday by Normaa

here are two strange but quite enjoyable videos from normaa, nothing intense but both have a sort of dream like quality and make a brief, interesting watch

Winter Ride by Dan Jenkins

Dan’s obviously been feeling his 14bikeco road bike, “rain put a damper on the 70 miler – did a solo 30 instead – really lovely ride” – glad to hear it mate, and the bike looks great! See the rest of the photos in the flickr set
