Long ago (2016) there was a jam in Arizona called the Prickly Pear Jam hosted by Mike Schmitt / Turf. At the time, the FGFS community was nearing extinction. Since events at the time were rare (still are), the whole community made it a point to get out there and join. After the event, Turf released this edit called Chain Gang. This was all of the street riding that went down during that weekend. The video was deleted a while ago but recently recovered, so here it is for your viewing pleasure once again, featuring a lot of familiar faces including Mike Schmitt, Jackson Bradshaw, Jimmy Watcha, Congo, Matt Reyes, Matt Spencer, Miguel Zendejas, Elliott Milner, Gus Molina, myself, and many more.
With the mass deletion of Vimeo content, we lost one of the most legendary videos in FGFS history: The Grime’s Shredwell 2. Don’t worry though, Fixed Gear Archive is here to save the day! I just uploaded the video back up onto the channel for our viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
