Totally missed this one from last week! Matt’s been making so many videos that I can’t keep up. This is probably one of my favorites among all the sick videos he’s been making as of late. The tricks, shots, and music all flow seamlessly to create one mesmerizing masterpiece. I couldn’t look away. Check it out!
I usually don’t find myself in LA very often, but lately has been different. LA also happens to be the newer home of Fixie legend Matt Reyes, so OF COURSE if I’m there and have my bike, I gotta hit my dude up. I got lucky one afternoon and we managed to meet up last minute as the sun was going down. We cranked out this wonderfully put together video in an hour and change, handing the camera back and forth until we couldn’t see our bars spin anymore. Sessions are always really fun with Slum and there’s never a dull moment, pushing each other to try new stuff. Stoked to do this more in the future, enjoy the video!
The boys rallied together at Woodward West last weekend to shred some FGFS and BMX at the famous skate camp. We were only there for a short time and we were only allowed to ride the indoor park, but nonetheless we had a blast. The possibilities are endless here. There was almost so much to do that we didn’t know where to start. Here’s the tricks we did manage to think of while we were there though, enjoy!
Juan Nieto is a newer name to the FGFS scene, but don’t let experience fool you. This dude has BIKE CONTROL. I’ve been following Juan on the good ol’ Instagram for a while now, but none of the clips on there have really highlighted his skills as much as this edit has. He loves his flat ground tech lines but also loves sending burly 180s. I love it. He’s got some style points too, don’t sleep on this dude!
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.
GAHDAMN! Chase and Jackson killed it so hard for the Constantine Tarck edit. As we all know, Chase is a madman on a bike, so of course all the skills transfer over to track. This is probably one of my favorite videos Jackson has put together too, such sick shots and edits. Reeeaally clean all around. Bolt hang 5 at the end is killer, CHECK IT.
Andy, Matt and David cruising around rainy SF. What’s there not to love? Love the little commentary from Matt throughout the video. Gives it a nice personal touch without being a corny vlog. Cool the dude at the end new what FGFS was, shoutout Palms Cycle!
TOTALLY missed this one when it dropped a week ago. Matt and Mike shredding tarck bikes around industrial areas is now my new favorite genre of video. Also can we talk about Matt’s line at 0:53, like what the fuck did I just watch? Amazing!
INTRODUCING: our first VX mixtape! We had a lot of fun with this one. Deacon and I split the cost of a VX and he’s been putting it to work. Him and our BMX friend Nico went in for full parts while Deacon pulled out the VX on the rest of the gang during casual / fun sessions. This was a lot of fun to do so this won’t be the last!
There was a lot of hype for our Barcelona trip video (Was meant to be called the Birth of Barcelona in honor of the legendary Death of Barcelona video from Grime / Zontrac) back when we took this trip in 2016. The question everybody has been dying to have answered: what happened to the video? To keep it brief, the trip organizer and filmer decided to hold on to the project and footage because it “wouldn’t be worth putting out”. Luckily though, I managed to take a lot of second angles and b roll from my camera along with Jackson being kind enough to lend me some of his footage. Thus, the Raw edit was born! This at least lets us share some of the fun times and cool tricks that went down during our 2016 trip (tons of more tricks happened though that aren’t included in this edit). To give some context for myself: this was my first time on a bike since my El Toro accident. My foot was nowhere near ready to ride but we booked the trip before that accident happened, so I went anyways. So my skills weren’t very sharp and my foot was delicate whenever i landed on it. Either way though, I still had a blast with these dudes and I reeeaally hope I can go back soon. Enjoy!
