It’s really exciting to see a crew arising from England again. Since the death of Ninja Cats, I wasn’t sure if I was ever gonna see a scene out there again. Sure enough, Icarus is holding it down. While the editing is a bit experimental and jarring at times, the shred has some raw 08 vibes that I’m digging a lot. The line at the 1:56 mark was real fresh too, I wanna see a whole edit of that guy.
This one gets the SMC seal of approval. Man, really really proud of Guillermo for pulling through with this and putting together a full comprehensive video. He’s had this vision and has been working at it for about two years, you can definitely tell a lot of hours went into it. So many good tricks, so many good riders, and a really good look into the LA cycling scene as a whole. I’m not that involved in most of the cycling scene so it’s good that Memo is out here documenting it and spreading the good word of trick track. Hell I haven’t even heard of most of the dudes doing tricks in this and I can’t tell you how excited that gets me for the future of this scene. Your boy even got some clips of that I was pretty stoked on around the 15:50 mark. Hyped to be part of it.
On the filmmaking side, Guillermo absolutely crushed it. Really great shots of LA, the tricks, the mashing, and the music choices were on point. Job well done Memo and everyone involved. If you liked this and want to support, make sure you check out Slowwheelz Cycling!
Just some dudes having fun from the Icarus crew out of England. Quarter stall at 2:20 was real slick.
Jackson with FOAD Gang gives us a comprehensive video breakdown of his favorite videos and riders from 2020!
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.(more…)
Some fire from Jake Lanich aka Brothalanich on the bike with Jackson behind the lens! This video as a whole is squeaky clean. The tricks, the edit, the filming, they all work great together. Love Jake’s smile whenever he’s doing tricks, you can tell he’s just out here having the time of his life. Great work dudes!
Jackson giving the people a break down of how to trackstand!
Sam Allgood put together this dope collection of skids from a grip of people for volume 1 of skid collection, I gotta get myself some clips in the next one!
The FOAD GANG has blessed us with a Kareem Shehab trick track edit! Kareem is a legend, plain and simple. He knows the scene better than any of us and has more skills on a bike than most of us. He’s been really back into trick track lately with the resurgence that’s been going on and all that fixie background he has quickly put him right back at the forefront of track bike tricks. Juiced on the legover skid combo at 3:22, those are way harder than they look (I know they look hard, but the statement still stands). Super refreshing video, don’t miss it!
