You read that right, Suck My Comp is officially BACK ON! After a 2 year hiatus thanks to covid, Suck My Comp 5 is taking place this November 19th in good ol’ Long Beach at Mcbride skatepark. FGFS events are few and far between, so I highly suggest you make it out.

If you’re competing, pre-register HERE!

More details:

  • If you have a frame sponsor, you will automatically be placed into the “PRO” division.
  • “PRO” winners will take home cash while “AM” winners will take home prizes.
  • All entry fees go directly into the pot for the pro division winners to take home.
  • We will also be contributing extra $$$ from our pockets as a pot bonus

  • Location: Mcbride Skatepark, 1550 Martin Luther King Jr Ave, Long Beach, CA 90813
  • If you plan on competing, I would highly recommend pre-registering here. It helps us organize better plus it’s cheaper for you. If that isn’t an option for you though, you can register day-of for $10.
  • Would recommend bringing a chair if you’re just spectating
  • Please be on time. We will have a 30 minute grace period to allow you to show up, but we will start without you if you aren’t present.

Social media algorithms are pretty messed up these days, so please please please help spread the word and lets make this weekend a good old fashioned fixie freestyle palooza! See you in November!

Also big thanks to our sponsors Ruff, FOAD, Destroy, Master, Fixated, Broke Boyz, and Merritt for helping make this happen.

New York Summer Series Kicks Off

A fresh New York monthly summer series has emerged thanks to NY community figurehead @brokeshutter. This monthly trick event will take place in Brooklyn and will crown a king of New York every month! If you can go, please do! Cause we need more events like this and when they do happen, we need to make them pop off.

More details here!

Onile Birthday Jam 2022

A rider out in the Philippines named Onile recently hosted a bike jam for his birthday which included some FGFS and Trick Track action! Turnout looked great and looked like a good time all around. Congrats to the homie Kyle for taking 1st in Trick Track and Irish Santiago for taking 1st in FGFS!

Fukuoka Loco Coverage

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a contest out of Japan (or anywhere for that matter), but YSO put on the “Fukuoka Loco” competition this past weekend and it looked like a bunch of fun. It’s really great to see the Japan scene in full effect. They house some of my favorite riders and really bring a unique style to FGFS, so this really puts a smile on my face and great to see some dudes out there that I haven’t seen ride in a while.

The format on this is interesting. For one: they combined trick track and FGFS. Not sure how I feel about that since the styles are hard to compare, but still cool to see everyone together. The bracket style play is interesting too. That format hasn’t really been adopted in the states, maybe it could be cool to implement?

RSK ended up taking the win on this one with Takashi taking 2nd place. Some solid riding all around though. I got word that they’re doing another competition in Osaka next. Maybe see you there?

BACK TO TRACK RECAP + RESULTS

This past weekend on Saturday we held our highly anticipated BACK TO TRACK trick track competition. It’s the first trick track specific competition that’s happened since around 2009 and it was a major success! To give some info about how the day went, we started at our original spot and people started showing up. It was the PERFECT spot. Basketball court, poles to spin off, and a bank next to it to do tricks on.

Almost immediately, a park official came up and told us we all had to leave. It was a scramble to find a new spot and get everyone there, but we ended up at a park in long beach that worked out perfectly (sign of relief). We had about 50 people total and the energy was great. With the resurgence of Trick Track riding, I think people were excited to have an event specifically for it. We’re gonna be dropping a bunch of photos from the day this week as well as a video recap on our Youtube channel, so keep an eye out for that. If you didn’t make it out, I highly recommend you make it out next year cause it was a blast. Thanks to everyone who came, supported, rode, and everything in between.

Introducing: The BACK TO TRACK JAM

Today’s announcement brings us back to 2009: Keo spins, 650c front wheels, and track bike frames galore. Today we present the 1st annual Back to Track jam! A trick track exclusive event brought to you by us going down on September 25th.

Here’s how it’s going down:

This is a track bike exclusive mostly flat ground competition, but all kinds of cyclists are encouraged to come hang out. Bring your best keo spins, wheelies, fish n chips, and everything in between!

There will be 2 divisions: PRO and AM. Use your best judgement to decide where you lie. If you’re too good for AM though I’ll have to bump you up. PRO division will have cash prizes for top 3 and some product for 4th and 5th place, while AM division will have product prizes for top 5.

We’ll have riders perform 2 3 minute runs in heats of about 3 and judge the best run. From there we’ll narrow down a top 5 in each division. In top 5, riders will perform 2 solo 3 minute runs and we’ll take the best run to decide results!

We’ll have side events too that are free for everyone to participate in, including a best trick jam format, footdown, trackstand competition, and more! There will be something for everyone here.

Registration:

Non-refundable pre registration is available and preferred HERE for a reduced price of $5! Day of competition registration is also available for $10, cash only. All proceeds go towards the prize pool for the pro division winners. We will also be contributing $200 to the prize pot!

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND:

This is not a city coordinated event. It’s possible that we may get kicked out of the park, so we have a few riding distance back up spots nearby that we can head to so we can continue. Also because it’s not an official city event, we need to be as respectful as possible to everyone in and around the park.
