Max out of Australia recently went on a huge Euro tour and met up with France’s own El Fakijoe. As we know, Antoine is nice with a camera so he shot this nice long piece with Max. Some killer mixed with some artsy, overall done really well. Shows some personality from Max that Instagram lacks. Important to note that Max is entirely on other people’s bikes for this video and still handles business. Beautiful shots and riding, take a look.
Rest In Peace Jeff Dempler
Yesterday, the community discovered absolutely devastating news that one of the early staples in the San Jose and fixed gear freestyle scene as a whole, Jeff Dempler, has passed away.
Jeff inspired people worldwide in the early 2010’s with his riding, filming, and constant stoke.
My first time meeting Jeff was staying at his house for the Epic Fixed Comp in 2012. I had never met or spoken to him before, but he was kind enough to essentially let a stranger in his house. Deaths in the community always hit harder because of how tight knit and small we are. As someone who was relatively distanced from Jeff, this still hits hard and I can’t imagine how people who were closer to him are feeling.
Tell people you love them and appreciate people who are in your life, because you never know who will go too soon.
Rest in peace Jeff, say hi to Keo for us.

Ritchie van Pelt for Hold Fast
Ritchie is now riding for Hold Fast! Sick come up and so cool that Hold Fast (the longest running strap business in the game) is still supporting the scene. Nice work.

MASTER COURTTEK FOR SALE NOW (KIND OF)
The new 2023 Trick Track frame of the year, the Master Courttek, officially went up for sale at 9am today. Bad news though: at the time of writing this post, the Andy Sparks blue colorway is all sold out, and the glow in the dark is sold out in Small and Large (medium still in stock though).
The good news? Since more of my signature colorway was produced as a whole, all sizes are currently still available! If you’re on the fence about snagging one, frames won’t be restocked for at least a couple years. Just something to think about.
Side note, 700c forks were restocked in chrome and black as well! Upgrade your Trick Track build or finish off your Courttek the right way, grab a fork here.
MASTER COURTTEK ON SALE TOMORROW @ 9AM PST
THE DAY OF RECKONING IS UPON US. The long long awaited Master Courttek frames finally go on sale TOMORROW at 9am PST. Set your alarm cause they will go quick.
