We got our hands on the Crew Defender, one of the only complete FGFS-esque bikes on the market right now thanks to the kind people at City Grounds, so I decided to give my two cents on the bike! Hit “read more” for a more in depth analysis on the bike.(more…)
Exciting news to share! Master Bike Co. gave me the opportunity to be part of their trick track team and gave me my own signature colorway for the new Courttek trick track frames that are set to drop early next year! Beyond excited with how the bike turned out. Gus did a killer job on the graphics, as always. As far as the colorway goes, I was going for the old raw Thrasher V1 vibes with the purple decals. I’m excited to put some shred on this thing. Keep in mind too that these are still prototypes, and the production geometry will likely be tweeked and perfected. Click read more for more photos + a rundown of the parts I got going on up in here.(more…)
We got a first look at the new beautiful Master Bike Co Courttek trick track frame in the Andy Sparks colorway last week. This week reveals Matt Bastard rocking a new raw and purple colorway reminiscent of the raw and purple Thrasher V1 frames! This thing is looking proper. Purple decals plus the purple components is a great touch, excited to see him shred this thing. Which colorway do you like better so far? A little bird told me there’s one more colorway that hasn’t been revealed yet, so stay tuned for that!
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…)

Requires a starnut (not included)

We’ve just been blessed with the first look at the new Master Bike Co. trick track frame: The Courttek! This bad boy looks like a tarck machine with some modern flare. Track geometry but clears 700c barspins, fits big tires, and looks sick as fuck. Word is there’s two other colorways that this is gonna come in; the one we’re seeing here is the Andy Sparks signature colorway (much deserved btw). Can’t wait to see what the other colors are and can’t wait to see some footage of people shredding em! Here’s what Master had to say about the bike:
“Samples of our new steel 700c tricktrack frame, the Courttek, have finally arrived! The team will be testing these bikes and they will be going into production shortly after. We wanted to keep the geo true to a traditional track bike while still having clearance for 45c tires and ample room to barspin. All without having to sacrifice frame length. Keep your eyes peeled for these bikes dropping in 2021!”
FGFS’ FAVORITE HANDLEBARS ARE RESTOCKED (for a limited time, as always), SNAG A PAIR HERE!
Master just changed the game! First of all, they restocked on the very sought after 64 Rear Hubs, so cop one HERE if you’ve been looking for one. Next, they just dropped 3/8th conversion axles for the hubs, so you can slap one of these in your track bike dropouts now to skip the whole cog and lockring mess that trick track riders have come to know and hate. Peep them 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
