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
Ritchie Vanpelt is a rider you may or may not have heard of, but this dude is crazy involved in the scene. He runs the Fixated FGFS crew in Netherlands, designs his own products (he made me a custom axle for my Bombtrack hub), knows where to get just about any product you can’t find any more, is an admin for the PS BMX site, and more! He recently got a custom bike made by Ted James, the mastermind behind 14 Bike Co and it turned out beautifully and definitely one of the most unique bikes I’ve seen in a long time.
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!
City Grounds just came out the gate with a new FGFS complete bike! It’s been a loooong time since we’ve seen the legendary fixed gear shop participate in the FGFS world, so it’s cool to see them stepping back up. While the geo looks a tad dated, at $399 it still looks like a great option for new people looking to transition into the FGFS world!
It’s been a while since we’ve seen the low key style god Jonathan Thompson for life reasons + this whole Covid deal, but yesterday we said fuck it and and got out to ride and film anyways. We’re coming around the bend on filming for a super secret video project and we only need more footage from a few key players to be done, Jonathan being one of them. It was great to have some biker to biker contact and I’m excited to break the rules of social distancing more in the coming months to get out and film. Also Jonathan’s rider page is finally up, peep it here!
We just added LDG’s Aluminum 2.2″ riser bars to our shop! These wide boys (28.5″ wide) are ideal for the modern fixed gear rider looking for comfort, function, and style. Snag a pair HERE for only $34.99! (plus shipping)
The famous (and my personal favorite FGFS rider) Teppei aka NASTY made some big moves and started his own 700c frame company called FAST PIER. They just released their Seeker 700c frame. From what he’s said and what I’ve seen, it seems like the ultimate FGFS x Track bike crossover frame. The frame looks beautiful, fits up to 38c tires, and runs for just under $600. It’s a hefty price tag, but sometimes thats just how it be bruh. I’m definitely looking into copping one, and when that happens definitely expect a little review. In the meantime, he doesn’t have a website up, so if you’re interested you’ll have to shoot him a message in the Fast Pier instagram.
It’s been a while, but we’ve officially dropped some new products! (finally) We’ve got a selection of different goodies including a hoodie, long sleeve, hats, stickers, phone grips, and air fresheners to choose from. Hit our webstore HERE to cop!
It’s official! Chase Henley is rolling with the squad. Dude is putting in so much work so we’re happy to officially add him to the team. Check out his rider page here and be on the lookout for a bunch of goodies from him sooner than later!
