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!

Chase Henley for Ruff Bike Co

Chase has been stacking clips for this edit since the end of CJTY filming. While most people will take a break after filming a big video section, Chase stayed hungry and just kept going. Chase is one of the most talented people to touch an FGFS bike in a long time. He can grind both sides equally, has no fear, and has a creative approach to spots. The mans is a complete package. Today, we are extremely proud to present his edit for Ruff Bike Co.

FOAD GANG | RIDERS ON THE STORM

The FOAD boys got a once in a lifetime opportunity to shred some damage from some super gnarly windstorms out in good ol’ Salt Lake. An unfortunate event for many turned into some very unique shred for the gang. Really enjoyed this edit as a whole. Good quality filming and editing as always and some really great spot usage from everybody. Really enjoyed the bounce tricks near the 2:40 mark and all of Chase’s tricks were crispier than ever. He’s really blossoming into one of my favorite riders overall. Great shred from everyone, don’t miss this!
