Current Build: Ruff Bike Co. Prototype

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll have noticed that the whole Ruff team mysteriously switched over to some new black frames that nobody has said anything about. Well me being the fixie journalist that I am, I am here to BREAK THE SILENCE AND BE THE WHISTLEBLOWER THAT YOU DESERVE! BIG FIXIE DOESN’T WANT YOU TO HEAR ABOUT THIS.

Jk, they’re just some new prototypes that we’ve all been testing out. What’s different? Tighter geometry and less weight mostly. Maybe some other technical jargon that I’m not sure about. I can confidently say this geometry is the best I’ve felt though and I’m excited for productions to run on them some day (who knows with the way production is these days). Anyways, here’s some pics of my bike I snagged while out in Atlanta, when it still looked new (ish).

More photos after the jump!

JBall for Master Bike Co. 2021

I’m proud to present to you my official welcome to Master Bike Co. Trick Track 2021 edit! Filmed in mostly Long Beach over the last half a year riding the prototype Master Courttek Trick Track frame, coming out in 2022. Enjoy!

Big shoutout to my gf Suzie for filming like 98% of these clips, couldn’t of made it happen without her and also shoutout to Kareem with Master for the bike of course!

PRIVILEGED BREAD 1

Copped a new handycam to start a more casual series: Privileged Bread. Had fun with this one so I hope you have fun watching too. Gonna be dropping these pretty frequently since they’re fun and easy to put together. Partial SMC squad and friends including myself, Pizza, Jacob, Deacon, and Suzie with some cameos. Bonus points if you can tell me who the cameos are. Enjoy!
