Pedro Oliveira & His 24″ Build

Pedro and Duarte from Portugal met up with us when we went to Barcelona in January earlier this year and really helped us out with finding spots and talking to locals. The dude is awesome and his passion for FGFS gets me stoked to ride. The dude is always hungry for clips, and seeing him get a custom frame from Nem Pro is well deserved. Be on the lookout for his clips when the Barcelona clips come out. But for now, I took some shots of him and his bike during the golden hour. Even though it’s a 24″, the frame geometry makes it ride like a 26″ build. It looks cool too, more photos after the jump!

Andy Sparks | Dreams

This edit is fucking sick. Andy Sparks takes riding and adds an old school flavor with a unique style with his mix of slider tricks and other tricks that really use the drive chain to his advantage. That ender was so tight. All these tricks are tight. Check it.

Checking In | Christian Ustarroz And His Custom Whip

It’s been a while since I’ve met up with my buddy Christian. He had a rim to sell me, so it was a perfect opportunity to head up to LA and meet up with him at his local bike shop, Golden Saddle Cyclery, to buy a rim, shoot some video, and snag some photos of his sweet new paint job on a custom frame, dubbed, the “Toe-Breaker.” Of course I’m not as good at taking pictures as Prolly, but you get the idea. No doubt, this is a beautiful build.  More photos after the jump.
