Been riding my cutter a bit lately and learned some new tricks, so I got stoked and put together this quick little tarck bit.
This 3 year old edit of Steven for YNOT blew some minds. First dude to do real technical grinds. Still insane!
This one is still rad.
Although the music is hard to listen to, the killer riding from Toyo makes it worth the watch. Some real bike control and big barspins. 180 wall to bar is definitely a stand out clip in here. The 180 one foot cans are also pretty crazy looking. So sick!

Well 2013 is almost over, and I’ve been doing some digging through old and new pictures, and came up with a solid list (In my opinion) of really beautiful Fixed Gear Freestyle builds from the past to now, in no particular order whatsoever. Let us know which builds were left out and what you think should be on here!
Lets start with Tyler Johnson’s builds.
The Leader Shadow was one of the sickest and priciest builds in 2010-11. Tyler’s specifically was real sick with the white paint drip on the seat tube. Eero’s always looked wild with fat tires too.
His other build was also gorgeous.
The almost murdered out Hold Fast build was also super sick.
The Gorilla Kilroy is one that needs to be featured in here for obvious reasons. One of the first true FGFS bikes, and it looked rad.
An appropriate follow-up would be the Grime Yo-Mang, the first 26′ specific FGFS frame. RIP Grime.
Oscar’s 14 Bike Co proto 29er was no joke, and looked like it could handle anything. Too bad that one never came out.
His BB17 Serpent was a game changer also, with it’s holographic print on the frame, fork, and bars. Unfortunately there weren’t any real good pictures of just the bike, but it just had to be on here. Here’s the bike check with it.
While were on the topic of Serpents, Funny’s build is one of my favorite builds I’ve ever laid eyes on.
Kareem’s Signature Leader Pharaoh was an iconic build for sure. Cheetah print errthang.
Speaking of Seattle residents, Jacob Ruff’s old BB17 was a looker also.
Anyone notice that almost every Destroy Bike that gets built looks amazing? (Pictured: Joshua Nieves, Devin Tolman, and Nelson Bell’s)
The 29er is no exception.
Slum’s old thrashed P-Fix was a fan favorite.
Tom Lamarche’s Charge Scissor V2 looked burly as hell. There weren’t really any pictures of it that I could find.
His USA Color Scheme P-Fix was a historical build. It was his debut on 26’s and damn did it look good
Phil’s Charmer V2 builds constantly changed colors and he always managed to make them look sweet.
Here’s a random one I found on the FGFS Forum. No clue what it is but it looked pretty sick.
Antonyo’s builds were always some of my favorite.
His Proto Milwaukee always looked so sick in my opinion.
His gold Unknown build was also baller as fuck. Haha.
His current Unknown proto is also very sick as well.
Packy’s All-City Airwolf is too clean.
Mike Schmitt’s old Ghost was a sick one too.
Matt Spencer‘s builds have always been my favorite for sure. He always knows how to make em’ look good.
He was the first to run hefty 29er tires on his first Mordecai back in 2010, and it looked sick as fuck.
Then for MWM2, he decided to do a blood red color scheme, which is still one of the most unique builds to date.
He later got on Volume, and built up the sickest thrasher. Chrome and tan wall tires look very clean in my opinion.
The slime green Thrasher build was another unique one. No real pictures of that one that I could find though.
When Mr. 700c switch to 26, he built up such a clean SKYLMT.
Don Dela Cruz’s Unknown 24/7 was definitely a clean 29er build.
Sam Hanson’s old Hold Fast 29er was also very sick.
Christian Ustarroz had a custom frame built up by Nem Pro and it looked very good. The raw Grime Medicine Man bars complimented the frame very well.
Congo originally built up his old LDG Hammer with the white/blue color way. There weren’t any pictures of it, but he put a throwback paint job on his new Unknown prototype. With the USA Destroy bars, it looked even sicker.
When Corey switched to 26′ for almost literally a minute, his All-City Airwolf was a real sick build.
To round it off, Joe Mckeag’s Unknown 24/7 Prototype is my favorite build of all time. purple, tanwall tires, and chrome parts is toooooooooo clean!
Well that, in my opinion, were some of my favorite builds (That I could find online at least) throughout mostly recent years. Maybe this provoked some future build ideas for some people, Christmas is coming up so why not help support FGFS companies right?! Hope you guys enjoyed the read, and please excuse me for the lack of photo credits for every picture, hope you guys don’t mind too much.
Matt’s Volume farewell was one of my favorite edits Matt ever put out. Smooth as hell, music goes great with the riding, give it another watch or two.http://vimeo.com/39918695″>Volume Farewell Edit</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/wolfdrawn”>Matthew Spencer</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a>.</p>
So once again, my FGFS bike was out for a bit. So I built my cutter back up, went to some flat ground and filmed this with Levi.
I think this is the first edit I’ve seen from this kid, but he KILLS it! Tons of tricks on lock with pretty good style. If he stays with it I think this kid will destroy when he’s older. Check it out!
His riding and style actually reminds me a lot of Marco’s early riding!
Don’t get me wrong, Joe destroys on 26 and continues to push the limits on a fixed gear, but watching his 700 style is my favorite thing in the world. This edit did a good job of showing it. Effortless.http://vimeo.com/37217482″>WOLF DRAWN: JOE’S FAREWELL</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/wolfdrawn”>Matthew Spencer</a> on <a href=”http://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a>.</p>
Wizard was the king of flatland. I wish he still rode.
