Off Track Episode 13

In today’s episode of Off Track, we explore the worst Fixed Gear trends, we get live news broken to us, Deacon asks more tough food questions, and much much more. Yes, I messed up the recording and only recorded my face, so enjoy some extra effort that was put into covering that up. Enjoy!

Remember you can also listen to Off Track on Apple Podcasts and Spotify


The very mysterious US made Ruff Bike Co CSK guard sprocket that I teased a couple months ago is now available for purchase! You can buy the sprocket alone as well as guard options on the website. $82 USD for the sprocket alone, extra $12 for the insert (19mm and 22mm options available), and an extra $10 if you want the guard with it. Here’s what Ruff has to say about it:

“We designed some 25 and 28 tooth sprockets that are compatible with Profile steel spline drive inserts and machined to accept select 4 bolt pattern nylon guards.

These sprocket were manufactured in the US from 7075 t6 aluminum alloy.”

Snag one HERE!

Touring the Master Headquarters

While in Seattle, we head over to the Master Bike Co. headquarters, aka Kareem Shehab’s crib, and he was nice enough to take us on a tour of his very impressive collection of fixed gear memorabilia he’s gathered throughout the years. Enjoy!

More Suck My Comp Recaps Emerge!

Harvey with the FPA dudes just released TWO separate recaps from the Suck My Comp weekend. One has more of a behind the scenes vibe mostly starring the FPA and Fixated guys while the other is more of a full event coverage. Love these, thanks Harvey!

JBall’s Courttek Bike Check (Part 1)

Finally got to snap some pics of my current Courttek build in Trick Track mode. While it may not be the prettiest Courttek out of all the beautiful ones I’ve seen popping up, it’s built for function and is an absolute Trick Track machine. FGFS mode on this same frameset coming soon. Full gallery and rundown after the jump!



While this was supposed to be a promo for the recently released Courttek frames, the unusual amounts of rain in SoCal lately delayed filming. The frames selling out in under a week from release didn’t help either.

All that aside though, I was still excited to finish this one up and show the world the capabilities of the Courttek frame with both flat ground Trick Track riding AND spot oriented FGFS riding. Hope you enjoy!


In today’s episode we invited #2 ranked Trick Track rider in the world Max Corcoran onto the show! We discuss Australia’s scene, why Max won’t switch from 700c, sponsorships, and more. Enjoy!
