We heard tragic news this week that our friend Aaron Keokham has passed away this week via instagram. Aaron was a driving force in the FGFS scene, having passion for these bikes that most people will never know. Although I never met him personally, I’ve talked to him enough online to know he was a really great dude. He even hit me up sending me stickers once for his brand Ride or Dye without me even asking. The FGFS community is small, so something like this touched us all in a very personal way, even effecting those that never had the pleasure to meet him. The family asks for privacy and asks for nobody to ask about how it happened. Aaron was a UC Davis graduate and a passionate photographer and fixed gear rider. Ride in peace Aaron, the world won’t be the same without you.
Hell Or Win just dropped a full length video with riding from 6 Colin, Charlie Suave, Aaron Keokham, and Ramon Antonio. 11:40 for Charlie, Aaron, and Ramon’s riding, 32:16 for Colin’s part. Killer riding from all these dudes. Charlie pieces together some tricky lines, Aaron keeps it jibby, Ramon kills it as usual, especially that tooth wheelie 180 ender, and Colin pushes himself to try some new stuff.
Aaron headed to SF for a weekend to hang out and ride with Slum. Here’s some nice lifestyle shots in front of the local Fire Department. More shots at Wheel Talk. Also check out Aaron’s blog Ride Or Dye.
Aaron Keokham just started a new FGFS related blog called Ride Or Dye. Some posts already up on there with some lifestyle shots of FGFS riders up north. Stoked to see it blossom and become something, stay updated here.
