Sneak Peak: Ruff CSK Guard Sprocket + Bike Check

Today we have an SMC EXCLUSIVE sneak peak look at the new Ruff CSK sprocket I’ve been riding for the last month. I’ve been enjoying the benefits of not breaking my chain on things while simultaneously loving the way this thing looks on my bike. While this is only a prototype and things are subject to change, the front of the sprocket is actually design-less and the CSK engraving sits subtly on the back of the drivechain. I dig it.

Figured I’d shoot some complete pics of my current build too while I was showing off the sprocket. You’ll notice this time around a higher seat than normal and a bunch of new scratches on my paint. Stay tuned for Ruff sprocket updates!

RUFF BIKE CO LAUNCH | GC BAR MIXTAPE

HOLY SHIT. Ruff Bike Co making a fucking wave in the FGFS world with this one. Some of the most innovative and heavy hitting FGFS riders make up the Ruff team and are featured in this video including Jacob Ruff, Matt Spencer, Jackson Bradshaw, and Elliott Milner. The level of creativity in this whole video was insane, but of course that’s what’s expected from this squad of riders. Too many tricks in here to call out, besides the fact that every body in here is looking fucking dialed. You’re gonna have to watch this one at least 5 times to really take in everything you’re seeing here.

The GC bars are looking as dialed as the riding too. Produced by these guys, you know they’re gonna be quality. Support FGFS rider driven brands, snag a pair of Ruff GC Bars HERE.

CSK Jam

Well, the CSK Jam went off on Sunday, to say the least. So many FGFS dudes showed up from all over LA and more. It was easily one of the sickest FGFS events ever. The vibes were great, the riding was intense, and spirits were high. Huge shout out to Jacob Ruff and Matt Spencer for organizing such a great event. Fixed gear freestyle is alive and well in southern California. Ratpack Lucas was there capturing the whole event, so I’m very excited to see how it comes together.

This was the only picture I managed to get while we were at the first spot, and to give you an idea of how many people showed up, there were still a ton of kids that were out of frame.
