Wheel Talk | Culver City edit

Sick way to start the day! Slum just dropped this edit with some of the last footage he shot while he was still in LA with myself, Marco, and Oscar. Always a great time filming with Slum and I think it shows in the footage. Isn’t it wild that he also makes the music he uses in his edits? Slum is a true wizard. Don’t miss this piece!

JOHNATHAN BALL MASTER COURTTEK BIKE CHECK

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.

Bike Check | Matt Bastard Master Courttek Prototype

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!
