JOHNATHAN BALL MASTER COURTTEK BIKE CHECK

Exciting news to share! Master Bike Co. gave me the opportunity to be part of their trick track team and gave me my own signature colorway for the new Courttek trick track frames that are set to drop early next year! Beyond excited with how the bike turned out. Gus did a killer job on the graphics, as always. As far as the colorway goes, I was going for the old raw Thrasher V1 vibes with the purple decals. I’m excited to put some shred on this thing. Keep in mind too that these are still prototypes, and the production geometry will likely be tweeked and perfected. Click read more for more photos + a rundown of the parts I got going on up in here.

Bike Check | Matt Bastard Master Courttek Prototype

We got a first look at the new beautiful Master Bike Co Courttek trick track frame in the Andy Sparks colorway last week. This week reveals Matt Bastard rocking a new raw and purple colorway reminiscent of the raw and purple Thrasher V1 frames! This thing is looking proper. Purple decals plus the purple components is a great touch, excited to see him shred this thing. Which colorway do you like better so far? A little bird told me there’s one more colorway that hasn’t been revealed yet, so stay tuned for that!

FIRST LOOK: MASTER BIKE CO COURTTEK FRAME

We’ve just been blessed with the first look at the new Master Bike Co. trick track frame: The Courttek! This bad boy looks like a tarck machine with some modern flare. Track geometry but clears 700c barspins, fits big tires, and looks sick as fuck. Word is there’s two other colorways that this is gonna come in; the one we’re seeing here is the Andy Sparks signature colorway (much deserved btw). Can’t wait to see what the other colors are and can’t wait to see some footage of people shredding em! Here’s what Master had to say about the bike:

“Samples of our new steel 700c tricktrack frame, the Courttek, have finally arrived! The team will be testing these bikes and they will be going into production shortly after. We wanted to keep the geo true to a traditional track bike while still having clearance for 45c tires and ample room to barspin. All without having to sacrifice frame length. Keep your eyes peeled for these bikes dropping in 2021!”

FIRST LOOK: Fast Pier Seeker Frame

The famous (and my personal favorite FGFS rider) Teppei aka NASTY made some big moves and started his own 700c frame company called FAST PIER. They just released their Seeker 700c frame. From what he’s said and what I’ve seen, it seems like the ultimate FGFS x Track bike crossover frame. The frame looks beautiful, fits up to 38c tires, and runs for just under $600. It’s a hefty price tag, but sometimes thats just how it be bruh. I’m definitely looking into copping one, and when that happens definitely expect a little review. In the meantime, he doesn’t have a website up, so if you’re interested you’ll have to shoot him a message in the Fast Pier instagram.
