There’s not much that needs to be said about this except one thing: perfection. (But I’m gonna say more anyways) Jacob Ruff is easily one of my favorites to ever do it on an FGFS bike. His approaches to spots are so unique and he has such a “get it done” attitude that won’t let him give up. He is an amazing representative of the sport both on and off the bike and I’m incredibly proud to call him a team mate and good friend. Okay, onto the riding. Jacob really surprised me on this one, I’m not gonna lie. He went a little more sendy than I’m used to seeing and it got me HYPED. Clean, original, and sendy, the perfect trifecta. Please don’t miss this one and watch it ASAP!
Stoked to see a new team edit from Master! They recently picked up a grip of Ams including Kameren Boun, Matt Bastard, Armaun Siheli, Hoang Tom, and Randy Rush. All these familiar faces along with the usual Master crew we all know and love make for one KILLER video! Kareem killed it with the intro too, really gave the video a ton of character. This got me stoked to ride but even more importantly, stoked to film. Don’t sleep on this one and support MASTER HERE
Keo Curry shaped the sport we all know and love. He’s universally known as the greatest to ever touch a fixed gear bike, and I’m forever grateful for even being in the position to be able to interact with him. Learning of his passing was tough to process, and I can’t imagine how people who were even closer to him feel. Slum made this really great highlight reel / tribute video of Keo to remind the world of his greatness. Rest in Peace king, we’ll miss you.
It’s been a loooong time since we’ve seen anything out of China. (I think they’re dealing with some Government related issues and can’t use social media) But from the looks of this, Fang De Yi definitely hasn’t let that keep him from riding. The dude is clean, stylish, and knows how to link together lines, definitely caught me by surprise!
As some of you may know, Marco Marquez was part of SMC in 2012-2013, then went into a bit of a hiatus. Fast forward to now, and he’s reemerged back onto an FGFS bike. He must have been training in the hyperbolic time chamber, because he somehow is 10x better than ever. We were extremely happy to hear about Marco returning to the scene and welcomed him back with open arms. I think it’s safe to say he’s one of the most fluid people I’ve ever seen touch an FGFS bike, and this may be some of the best riding these bikes have ever seen. Welcome back Marco, we missed you!
Side note, this is the location of the SUCKMYCOMP 4 going down next week, see you there!
If I had to describe this video in one word, it would be mesmerizing. Slum has done it again with his newest creation, this time actually involving FGFS! These are starting to feel more like art works than edits. The b roll, the tricks, and the music all work together so well to create a piece of content you can’t look away from. The riding is obviously great too, just had to get that out of the way first. Jaoa has been in the game for a long time so it’s awesome to see him still shredding hard. Slum and Combs even joined in on the fun too. Don’t miss this one!
