Quite possibly the most recognizable face in the Fixed Gear scene, Andy Sparks is an outspoken man with vast amounts of fixed gear knowledge and skill. Being in the scene for almost 10 years now, Andy knows a thing or two about the “sport”. Here we gave him a chance to talk about himself and spread some fixie knowledge to the new generation of fixed gear kids. Buckle up, cause this just might be our best interview yet. Big thanks to Andy for being down to share his thoughts and thanks to Slumworm for providing essentially all the photos, we here at SMC are honored! If you aren’t already, follow Andy on IG @lolandysparks . The Andy Sparks interview is here, enjoy:
Been loving all these throwback edits that Wolf Drawn has been uploading to his Youtube. Takes me right back to the best FGFS days! Also, this reminds me that Congo was WAY ahead of his time. Still some sick tricks in here!
This brings bacl such good memories. Slum just re-upped this one to his Youtube channel. Classic edit from the iMinusd era when San Jose was THE place to be for FGFS. Scott had great steez and Slum was (and still is) such an inspiration behind the camera.
Wolf Drawn posted up this little throwback edit from the BHFBC competition that used to go down in San Diego. It’s so insane that Boothby did a feeble 180 bar this long ago (2010 I think?) Miss seeing comps like these go down!
Jaoa just uploaded him and Dew’s trip to Korea from a few years ago that I believe was in the CFTY3 DVD. Two of the most famous Thai FGFS riders of all time went out to tear up the streets of Korea and looked like they had a great time doing it. Looking like true celebrities out there.
I feel like this slipped through the cracks and under people’s radars, but this is still one of my favorite web edits throughout the years. We’ve got Wheeltalk killers Devon, Anthony, and Jaoa featuring Steven Jensen. That lineup right there is destined for greatness. If you haven’t seen this, you definitely need to watch it asap. Jaoa puts it together beautifully, really making me miss Thailand.
