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!”
For those who don’t know, Kareem Shehab (owner of Master Bike Co) is also sick on the blades. I don’t know much about blading but he made it look fun as fuck. Makes me wanna try it out. Master just dropped some blade frames that you can pre order HERE!
The FOAD GANG has blessed us with a Kareem Shehab trick track edit! Kareem is a legend, plain and simple. He knows the scene better than any of us and has more skills on a bike than most of us. He’s been really back into trick track lately with the resurgence that’s been going on and all that fixie background he has quickly put him right back at the forefront of track bike tricks. Juiced on the legover skid combo at 3:22, those are way harder than they look (I know they look hard, but the statement still stands). Super refreshing video, don’t miss it!
Stoked to see a new team edit from Master! They recently picked up a grip of Ams including Kameren Boun, Matt Bastard, Armaun Siheli, Hoang Tom, and Randy Rush. All these familiar faces along with the usual Master crew we all know and love make for one KILLER video! Kareem killed it with the intro too, really gave the video a ton of character. This got me stoked to ride but even more importantly, stoked to film. Don’t sleep on this one and support MASTER HERE
We got the man himself, Kareem Shehab, to answer some questions about himself to get to know him a little better in this edition of GTK. Well known veteran for his legendary FGFS videos (Death Pedal, BMH, Southern Safari), his skills on the blades, his huge grinds, and his bike company Master Bike Co, Kareem Shehab is a jack of all trades and certainly deserves to get a little more about himself shared with the world. If anything, we’re the ones who don’t deserve this man’s time and attention. Personally, I used to idolize this man and dreamed of meeting him one day, so being able to interview him is truly humbling. He’s seen this tiny FGFS community start from it’s roots and continues to be a driving force of content and components to keep the scene going. Here is, the Kareem Shehab interview:
Master making waves with this new 9 minute masterpiece of a team edit featuring Jimmy Watcha, Ramon Antonio, Gus Molina, and Kareem Shehab. This promo is exciting from start to finish and is a perfect way to kick off the launch of their new frames, the Hightek Frame (available in a ton of awesome colors). Watcha is a machine, Gus is a tech god, and Ramon & Kareem fucking send it. Watcha’s opening line and Kareem’s huge kink rail at 2:30 are personal favorites. This one will be on repeat for a while, don’t miss it.
Sesh Tape is getting deeper and deeper in to its legacy and the content is still better than ever. Matt always puts in the best B-Roll along with the best riding making for every video being entertaining as fuck. This one features a grip of different riders with different styles. Worth a few watches for sure. Sick to see some footage of Kareem. Congo’s riding looking real dialed in here.
