Introducing: The BACK TO TRACK JAM

Today’s announcement brings us back to 2009: Keo spins, 650c front wheels, and track bike frames galore. Today we present the 1st annual Back to Track jam! A trick track exclusive event brought to you by us going down on September 25th.

Here’s how it’s going down:

This is a track bike exclusive mostly flat ground competition, but all kinds of cyclists are encouraged to come hang out. Bring your best keo spins, wheelies, fish n chips, and everything in between!

There will be 2 divisions: PRO and AM. Use your best judgement to decide where you lie. If you’re too good for AM though I’ll have to bump you up. PRO division will have cash prizes for top 3 and some product for 4th and 5th place, while AM division will have product prizes for top 5.

We’ll have riders perform 2 3 minute runs in heats of about 3 and judge the best run. From there we’ll narrow down a top 5 in each division. In top 5, riders will perform 2 solo 3 minute runs and we’ll take the best run to decide results!

We’ll have side events too that are free for everyone to participate in, including a best trick jam format, footdown, trackstand competition, and more! There will be something for everyone here.

Registration:

Non-refundable pre registration is available and preferred HERE for a reduced price of $5! Day of competition registration is also available for $10, cash only. All proceeds go towards the prize pool for the pro division winners. We will also be contributing $200 to the prize pot!

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND:

This is not a city coordinated event. It’s possible that we may get kicked out of the park, so we have a few riding distance back up spots nearby that we can head to so we can continue. Also because it’s not an official city event, we need to be as respectful as possible to everyone in and around the park.

DESTROY FRAME DROP

Destroy just released their new “Destroy Unicorn Killer Comp” frame and it looks killer. A more compact version of their famous Unicorn Killer series. Thing looks ready to shred out the gate. Heres what Destroy has to say about it:

“The evolution of a classic DESTROY FGFS Frame. Built for all around carnage on the street at the park heck why not dirt. A compact version of the frame that set modern day FGFS. Now with a geometry oriented to fit a greater range of riders while offering a centered and reliable under body feel.

With the idea always being that the UNICORN KILLER COMP would be put though constant torture we complimented this frame with one of our strongest rear ends and dropouts that fit 14mm axels.”

Fixated Stout Sprocket

Fixated out of the Netherlands just announced that they have a sprocket releasing in about a week! This thing looks sick. Guard sprocket compatible, 48 spline, comes in 19mm, 22mm, and 24mm. Hefty price point ay 90€, but good splined sprockets are definitely something the scene has been running dry on, so this is great to see. Hit them up at contact@fixated.nl for orders and questions!

Rare Track Bike Post: LD LABS TRACK BUILD

It’s been a while since I’ve had a track bike that I was stoked on. I’ve had this LD Labs frame built up for a while, but I wasn’t too hyped on the way it was set up and didn’t enjoy the way it felt. Finally though, I decided to put some time and $$$ into it to finally get it the way I envisioned. Also waiting 6 months for some Omniums on Ebay cause the fucker wouldn’t send the cranks didn’t help with getting this project finished, but alas! I present to you: my LD Labs dream build. (More photos + specs after the jump)

2021 DESTROY BIKES “OMEN” FRAME

One of the most popular names in the game for a long time just made a resurrection! Destroy was a prominent name in the game for a long time until they went on a hiatus for the last 4ish years. Today they rise from the ashes with a brand new trick track frame called “The Omen“. This is a classic case of beauty + beast and is exactly what people are looking for in the scene right now. This 4130 chromoly frame can fit 42c tires, has interchangeable geometry depending on fork length (longer fork for tricks, shorter fork for track), beautiful details, and gussets for strength while still being light at only 5 pounds. I haven’t seen anybody shredding it yet, but by the looks of it, it seems like an all around killer bike. Find more details HERE
