I’ve been real hyped on having the Wheel Talk site back up and running cause Matt consistently drops amazing original content on there. Andy, Gus, and Watcha drove up to Ramon and Slum’s home turf in Portland to shred some fixie bikes and caught a great Friday the 13th session. Full set and writeup HERE
Awesome news to see on a shitty Monday morning. The long awaited Master Bike Co. frames are finally available for purchase in Matte Black, Sparkle White, Fluorescent Yellow, Trans Blue, Bubblegum Pink, and Jimmy Watcha’s pro model with decals designed by none other than Gus Molina. Master Bike Co. is 100% rider owned, so if you’re in the market for a new frame this should be one of your first choices. These have been tested for over 2 years now and have proven worthy of the best in the game like Jimmy Watcha, Gus Molina, Ramon Antonio, and Kareem Shehab. PICK UP A FRAME HERE
Here’s what Master has to say about the frames:
The Master HighTek frame is the culmination of over 2 years of dedicated prototyping and testing by some of the best riders in the world.
This frame is made from 4130 heat treated chromoly and features an integrated headtube drilled for gyro tabs, gusseted top tube and down tube, Mid BB shell, butted seattube, removable U-brake mounts, and yoke style bb cluster for maximum chainring and tire clearance. The Master Hightek frame has the shortest FGFS wheelbase with full barspin clearance.
Designed for 408 A-C Fork
Freewheel compatible – Includes necessary hardware to run BMX hubs
Master also has forks to go with their frames, available for pre-order here
OG SMC founder Christian Meldrum and myself had a day off at the same time for the first time in a long time, and we decided to grab our track bikes and hit the ride we used to ride every weekend of our high school lives, Huntington Beach. We had a great time. Here’s some pictures I grabbed from the session.
