Jackson with FOAD Gang gives us a rundown of his favorite hubs in fixed gear!
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.

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!
Master just dropped some beautiful new 700c trick track / FGFS forks for the people! These are designed for either 700c FGFS use or to stick on your track bike so you can throw some barspins.

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!”
Master just changed the game! First of all, they restocked on the very sought after 64 Rear Hubs, so cop one HERE if you’ve been looking for one. Next, they just dropped 3/8th conversion axles for the hubs, so you can slap one of these in your track bike dropouts now to skip the whole cog and lockring mess that trick track riders have come to know and hate. Peep them here!
Tom out of Vietnam hitting just about every flat trick in the book!
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!
Such a nice surprise to see pop up this week! Armaun has been one of my favorite under the radar dudes to watch for a long time, so I was really excited to see that Master Bike Co thought the same thing and decided to snag him up for their team. Armaun has a unique gritty style that’s really exciting to watch. You’re never really sure what he’s gonna pull on any given setup. It’s not the prettiest, but it doesn’t have to be. Perfect riding is boring sometimes. What I also love about Armaun’s riding is that he keeps it fun. That’s what it’s all about. He keeps it jibby and fun throughout a lot of the video, but then there’s clips like 2:50 that make you say “wait what the fuck?” You’re gonna have to double take a lot with this video. Take it all in, rewind if you need to. I promise you it’s worth it. Also though. CAN WE TALK ABOUT THAT ENDER.. WHAT? That’s some BMX level stuff right there. Probably the last thing I was expecting him to do. Absolutely insane. Easily the sickest FGFS clip I’ve seen in a few years. Don’t sleep on Armaun and don’t sleep on Master!
