Bike Check | Matt Bastard Master Courttek Prototype

We got a first look at the new beautiful Master Bike Co Courttek trick track frame in the Andy Sparks colorway last week. This week reveals Matt Bastard rocking a new raw and purple colorway reminiscent of the raw and purple Thrasher V1 frames! This thing is looking proper. Purple decals plus the purple components is a great touch, excited to see him shred this thing. Which colorway do you like better so far? A little bird told me there’s one more colorway that hasn’t been revealed yet, so stay tuned for that!

FIXED GEAR HOLIDAY PRESENT GUIDE

Do you have a loved one who rides a fixed gear bike? Are you not sure what to buy for them this holiday? Or are you a fixed gear rider and people keep asking you what you want for the holidays and you just keep shrugging your shoulders saying “I dunno”? Well if you fall into either of these camps, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re a fixed gear rider, just send this article to the next person who asks.

Here I’ll be listing a grip of small fixed gear parts and accessories brands that you can support this holiday to get some stuff that your fixed gear loved one will ACTUALLY be stoked about, rather than that shirt you get them from Tilly’s every year that they pretend to be excited about.

FIRST LOOK: MASTER BIKE CO COURTTEK FRAME

We’ve just been blessed with the first look at the new Master Bike Co. trick track frame: The Courttek! This bad boy looks like a tarck machine with some modern flare. Track geometry but clears 700c barspins, fits big tires, and looks sick as fuck. Word is there’s two other colorways that this is gonna come in; the one we’re seeing here is the Andy Sparks signature colorway (much deserved btw). Can’t wait to see what the other colors are and can’t wait to see some footage of people shredding em! Here’s what Master had to say about the bike:

“Samples of our new steel 700c tricktrack frame, the Courttek, have finally arrived! The team will be testing these bikes and they will be going into production shortly after. We wanted to keep the geo true to a traditional track bike while still having clearance for 45c tires and ample room to barspin. All without having to sacrifice frame length. Keep your eyes peeled for these bikes dropping in 2021!”
