Johnathan Ball // Still Here 2022

Will I ever stop filming edits? Some day sure, but luckily that day isn’t here yet. Here’s my 2022 web edit for Ruff Bike Co. Although life continues to constrict free time, I think it’s important to make time to do things you enjoy. For me, that’s riding bikes and making edits. Filmed in Atlanta and all over SoCal. Big thank you to everyone who held a camera for this thing. Also huge thanks to Ruff Bike Co as always for all the support. Enjoy!

Chase Henley – Exceptional Leftovers

Here’s the “leftovers” from Chase’s Welcome To Ruff web edit that dropped earlier this year. I know, these tricks are still really good. Chase is progressing at an alarming rate though, so he surpasses his footage really really fast. Anyways, enjoy his exceptional leftovers.

MUST WATCH – CHASE DAVIS 2022 EDIT

YOU LOVE TO SEE IT. I’ve been preaching for a while that the web edit is dead. Well lucky for us, FOAD Gang is here to save us from an eternity of Instagram reels. Chase is one of my favorite riders, period. This edit really highlights why: smooth AF riding, creative lines, some big stuff mixed in too. So damn good. Personal favorites are the roof 360 at :48, scary barspin at 2:30, line at 3:12 (that X-Up looked so cool), and that feeble bar ender was a thing of beauty.

If you ride FGFS bikes, take after Chase’s lead and MAKE A WEB EDIT, because we need more! (No matter your skill level)

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.
