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
Ritchie Vanpelt is a rider you may or may not have heard of, but this dude is crazy involved in the scene. He runs the Fixated FGFS crew in Netherlands, designs his own products (he made me a custom axle for my Bombtrack hub), knows where to get just about any product you can’t find any more, is an admin for the PS BMX site, and more! He recently got a custom bike made by Ted James, the mastermind behind 14 Bike Co and it turned out beautifully and definitely one of the most unique bikes I’ve seen in a long time.
The SlowWheelz bois Guillermo and Marcos got down in DTLA with Slumworm behind the camera to promote their new crew / brand. These two have been putting in mad work on the trick track bikes lately and the come up is real. They’ll transition to FGFS one day 😉 . Peep this one!

RSK from Japan just dropped a hell of a surprise for our Monday morning! This unseen footage is from 2014 – 2017 and still holds up to this day easily. RSK isn’t afraid to send it, and I believe that’s been lacking a bit in the scene as people are being more drawn towards technical flatledge tricks. Definitely refreshing to see. I’m not sure if RSK really rides anymore since he’s on the dad life train now, but we can only hope he still touches his bike every now and then. That being said, still really stoked on this footage!
