Current Build: Ruff Bike Co. Prototype

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll have noticed that the whole Ruff team mysteriously switched over to some new black frames that nobody has said anything about. Well me being the fixie journalist that I am, I am here to BREAK THE SILENCE AND BE THE WHISTLEBLOWER THAT YOU DESERVE! BIG FIXIE DOESN’T WANT YOU TO HEAR ABOUT THIS.

Jk, they’re just some new prototypes that we’ve all been testing out. What’s different? Tighter geometry and less weight mostly. Maybe some other technical jargon that I’m not sure about. I can confidently say this geometry is the best I’ve felt though and I’m excited for productions to run on them some day (who knows with the way production is these days). Anyways, here’s some pics of my bike I snagged while out in Atlanta, when it still looked new (ish).

More photos after the jump!

Wheel Talk – Clockwork

Been a while since we’ve seen a certified hood classic good old fashion family Wheel Talk edit! This ones got the usual gang plus a few special guests like Jordan Madarang and Mike Bido! Been forever since I’ve seen Jordan on a bike. If you don’t know who he is, he’s a 700c mid school OG. Anyways, sick to see he’s still got the moves and also really nice to see Slum back on his FGFS build. Good tricks and good vibes all around!

Chase Henley for Ruff Bike Co

Chase has been stacking clips for this edit since the end of CJTY filming. While most people will take a break after filming a big video section, Chase stayed hungry and just kept going. Chase is one of the most talented people to touch an FGFS bike in a long time. He can grind both sides equally, has no fear, and has a creative approach to spots. The mans is a complete package. Today, we are extremely proud to present his edit for Ruff Bike Co.
