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.
For those who don’t know, Kareem Shehab (owner of Master Bike Co) is also sick on the blades. I don’t know much about blading but he made it look fun as fuck. Makes me wanna try it out. Master just dropped some blade frames that you can pre order HERE!
SLOWWHEELZ is a new fixed gear freestyle based apparel brand started by young tarck extraordinaire Guillermo Galindo and friends. I love seeing rider owned brands start within our community, especially when it’s done right like this. Memo made sure to represent minorities and compiled the team entirely of people of color too, you love to see it. They just dropped their first line of shirts and stickers and they’re almost already sold out, so hop on it while you can and be on the lookout for more stuff from them soon. SHOP HERE
Ready for a new type of community? If you aren’t familiar with Discord, it’s basically a forum app but with more advanced features than your standard forum. We’re hoping to create a stronger community with the launch of this with categories to show off your build, ask about tricks, post your edits, and more! Any and all are welcome, so click HERE to join and come hang out with us!
This made me shed an internal tear. Jackson put together this beautiful little short film about the mindset of trick riding. He put my (and probably many of our) thoughts into words and paired it with some really great looking footage. Definitely give this one a watch if you get a chance.
Okay I know, 17 minutes is a long time. But some of these clips have been in the vault since 2018 so can you really blame me? Also yes I know there’s a whole lot of skatepark clips in here, but that doesn’t mean we still aren’t out in these skreets; it just means all the street clips we get have been on normal cameras for our super secret full length video we’ve been working on for a while. Anyways, enjoy these clips, b roll, falls, and goofs from my phone from the last 2ish years.
For those of you who don’t remember Michael Trewartha, he’s an ex FGFS rider turned professional musician. He contacted me a little while back to borrow a bike for a music video, so I let him use one of my bikes and this is the result!
