I was scrolling through my files yesterday and totally forgot I shot a bunch of photos while I was in Texas with Ruff Bike Co last year. Footage from that trip hopefully coming soon!
Bringing in the new year I decided to take some fresh pics of my current RUFF Sleeper build. While it’s not exactly a fresh build since I’ve been running the same Frame and Fork since May 2018 (longest I’ve had a single frame and especially fork), the build got some fresh components since i first posted pics of the build. Read more for some words and thoughts about the bike and a parts breakdown for 2020.
Jacob Ruff showing the process behind a cool lil line he thought up, very sick!
There’s not much that needs to be said about this except one thing: perfection. (But I’m gonna say more anyways) Jacob Ruff is easily one of my favorites to ever do it on an FGFS bike. His approaches to spots are so unique and he has such a “get it done” attitude that won’t let him give up. He is an amazing representative of the sport both on and off the bike and I’m incredibly proud to call him a team mate and good friend. Okay, onto the riding. Jacob really surprised me on this one, I’m not gonna lie. He went a little more sendy than I’m used to seeing and it got me HYPED. Clean, original, and sendy, the perfect trifecta. Please don’t miss this one and watch it ASAP!
Before I was officially with Ruff Bike Co, I flew to Seattle and met up with Jacob to try out for the team. We had an hour long session in a parking garage and I guess they liked what they saw!
It’s here, one of the most anticipated edits of the year! Jackson has always been one of my favorite dudes to watch on a bike. All of Jackson’s videos have impressed me since he got on my radar. He never ceases to amaze with the creativity that goes into both his riding and camera work. For starters, the intro on this is great. Such a fun creative way to intro an edit. Next, I absolutely love all the nostalgic old footage mixed in with the banger tricks. Makes me wanna cry a little :’). Okay, for the actual tricks. There was never a dull moment for me. Highlights though include the slider at 1:43, the feeble hard at 2:12, the feeble 180 at 3:22, and whatever you wanna call 3:50. Do not sleep on this edit! Watch it now!

Jackson teases us for his new Ruff edit that comes out next week, can’t wait!
